Aerodynamic performance, safety and ventilation do not need to come at the expense of each other. By using our whole-helmet approach to development, we have been able to deliver unparalleled levels of aerodynamic performance, safety and ventilation without compromise in the Ventral SPIN. Taking inspiration from the Venturi effect, the helmet’s airflow zones allow the helmet to pass through the air with greater efficiency, making it faster. Residual air traveling around the helmet is managed by the 22° aero trailing edge, the perfect angle for minimizing turbulence, further improving aerodynamic performance. By leading air through rather than around the helmet, its wake is minimized, while its ventilation and cooling properties are enhanced. Other features of our whole-helmet approach include a fully wrapped unibody shell with an EPS liner for the ideal balance between weight and protection. SPIN (Shearing Pad INside), our patent-pending silicone pad technology; a lightweight adjustment system and an ergonomic precision strap provides a flexible, comfortable and secure fit. - Unique aerodynamic design optimized with CFD testing for enhanced aerodynamic performance and minimal air turbulence. - Helmet integrated with patent pending SPIN (Shearing Pad Inside) pads - Accelerated airflow zones, inspired by the Venturi effect, to reduce fluid drag. - Extreme cooling and ventilation due to innovative air flow design. - High performance EPS liner with targeted and optimized density to provide the ideal balance of low weight and crash protection. - Fully wrapped unibody shell construction to increase safety and helmet integrity. - Light weight size adjustment system for a personalized fit. - Easily adjustable precision straps molded into the helmet liner for extra comfort and safety. - Eye garage to keep your sunglasses securely in position when placed on the helmet. - Used and preferred by Cannondale - drapac Pro Cycling Team. - Meets EN 1078, CPSC 12.03 AS/NZ 2063:2008 certifications.
The Octal X SPIN tailors to the needs of gravel and cyclocross riders. With an extended shell covering more of the helmet liner compared to the Octal, the Octal X SPIN benefits from enhanced strength properties with very little increase in weight. Features include extreme ventilation, aerodynamic efficiency, a unibody shell construction and an EPS liner, as well as POC's proven aramid bridge technology. All these features come as part of our whole-helmet approach to design and construction in order to deliver superior levels of comfort, fit, and performance. With the inclusion of SPIN (Shearing Pad INside), our silicone-pad-technology system, the helmet further builds on our whole-helmet approach. - Fully wrapped unibody shell construction to improve helmet strength. - Helmet integrated with patent-pending SPIN (Shearing Pad INside) pads. - Very lightweight. - Highly ventilated using POC's unique ventilation design. - Aramid bridge technology added to EPS liner for enhanced structural integrity. - High-performance Polycarbonate (PC) shell covering more of the liner to improve safety and protection against sharp objects. - Simple and easy adjustment system for a perfect fit. - Precision straps molded into liner for extra comfort. - Eye garage to keep your sunglasses. - Recco reflector.
With features from several of POC’s award-winning helmets and a unibody shell construction, the Tectal Race SPIN provides protection and ventilation on a previously unseen scale for mountain bike riders. With the inclusion of SPIN (Shearing Pad INside), our patent-pending silicone pad technology system, the helmet further builds on our whole-helmet approach to design and construction in order to deliver superior levels of comfort, fit, and performance. Other safety features include an aramid bridge system for improved structural integrity and a reinforced EPS liner. The unibody shell construction supports the integrity of the helmet while ensuring the weight remains low. With ventilation optimized and evaluated through wind tunnel testing, the Tectal Race SPIN delivers lightweight, reliable protection that will keep you cool headed as you push your boundaries on the trail. - Fully wrapped unibody shell construction to improve helmet strength - Helmet integrated with patent pending SPIN (Shearing Pad Inside) pads - Lightweight - Highly ventilated using POC’s unique ventilation design - Aramid bridge technology integrated with liner for enhanced structural integrity - High performance PC shell covering more of the liner to improve safety and protection against sharp objects - Simple and easy adjustment system for a perfect fit - Precision straps molded into liner for extra comfort - Goggle clip - Adjustable visor - Recco reflector - Weight: XS-S: 337g, M-L: 368g, XL-XXL: 390g - Certifications: EN 1078, CPSC 12.03, AS/NZ 2063:2008
POC's Octal helmet is light, ventilated, safe, and FAST. It's unique shape uses a unibody construction that provides more coverage to the temples and the back of the head. It's EPS liner is strategically thicker in sensitive areas, and it's all covered with a durable outer polycarbonate shell. The Octal delivers massive front vents and uses Coolbest padding to reduce the temperature between the helmet and your head. The huge vents even make a great place to store your sunglasses. A scannable ICE tag is also included.
The well-ventilated Tectal has been specifically developed for aggressive trail riding and enduro racing and incorporates the aramid bridges system from POC’s proven and award-winning Trabec helmet. The reinforced EPS liner provides a high level of protection and the unibody shell construction, introduced in POC’s ground breaking Octal road cycling helmet, further enhances the safety properties and construction integrity of the helmet while maintaining a low weight. Tectal offers more coverage than conventional mountain bike helmets and has a highly efficient ventilation design, optimized and evaluated through wind tunnel testing. The lightweight size adjustment system ensures a comfortable and secure fit. - EPS liner - Outer PC shell - Unibody shell construction - Aramid fiber grid for protection and durability - Designed to provide more coverage at temples and back of head - Size adjustment system - Adjustable visor - Recco reflector - Weight: XS-S: 320g, M-L: 350g, XL-XXL: 370g
Beyond just aerodynamic, POC's Octal Aero provides incredible ventilation and safety. It's unique shape uses a unibody construction that provides more coverage to the temples and the back of the head. It's EPS liner is strategically thicker in sensitive areas, and it's all covered with a durable outer polycarbonate shell. Relective patches help keep you visible and POC includes their scannable ICE tag. To keep this aerodynamic helmet from overheating, POC included Coolbest padding to reduce the temperature between your head and the helmet. Additionally, large exhaust ports at the back of the helmet move warm air out and increase air circulation so you can keep cool even at your red line.
