Sometimes it's better to just let it slide.

The POC Octal MIPS Road Helmet not only offers more protection than most high-end road helmets, it weighs less, too. With extra coverage, especially at the temples and the back of the head, the Octal will reduce your chances of injury in the unfortunate event of a crash. The integration of MIPS multi-directional impact protection reduces rotational forces on the head during real-world impacts using an additional slip plane that mimics the way cerebrospinal fluid in the skull absorbs energy from collisions.

The Octal's EPS liner is strategically designed for extra thickness in the most exposed areas, and it's entirely covered by the outer PC shell. The unique, fully-wrapping unibody shell construction functions as a monocoque, enhancing the helmet's protection qualities as well as its integrity of construction while keeping it impressively lightweight. In addition, POC has done something new with the Octal's ventilation system—instead of many small vents, the Octal features larger vents, resulting in more open surface area at the front, which, in combination with a specially-designed interior, allows more airflow than comparable helmets.

The Octal's ultralight size adjustment system ensures a comfortable and secure fit without excess contact with your head. Internal Coolbest padding regulates temperature to help you keep a cool head in hot weather. Reflective patches enhance visibility. A built-in eyewear garage keeps your sunglasses secure and easily accessible when you're not wearing them. This helmet is available in POC's attention-grabbing AVIP Zinc Orange and Hydrogen White.

Best Helmet I have ever bought!

I have only had this helmet for a couple months but it has already proven to be the best cycling helmet I have ever owned. It has great air flow, plenty of adjustments for a great fit and was a great deal. I added some loose meshing to the front air vents to keep bugs out but I do that with all of my helmets.

Great helmet. Good fit. Great air flow. Light weight. Mine is neon orange.

Sun glasses are no problem with this helmet. I wear my sun glasses under the strap.

Western Bike Works had the best price. Bought mine on the 4th of July weekend.

Great helmet with some good new features

Use of white foam makes helmet highly visible. Large vent holes allow better air flow and an easier head scratch. MIPS is nice feature. Purchase of optional accident notification component could be lifesaver for solo riders. Eyeglass garage may not be useful.

Protect your brain

Kansas, but I do the Katy Trail across Missouri &

I had a bike wreck that resulted in 3 brain bleeds & a helicopter ride. After that I discovered POC helmets & chose to protect my head as much as I could. POC helmets are lightweight & very comfortable to wear. The POC Octal have large vents that keep your head cool. If you wear sunglasses, there's a spot on the helmet to park them when not needed. The only thing I wish they had would be a visor, because I ride a recumbent trike. I was drawn to the orange color because of both visability & it matches the color of my trike.

I love everything about this helmet. It looks great and feels even better on my head. I was on the fence about such an expensive product, but I have no regrets!

Fit is great. The helmet is light and keeps me cool. I wear a mirror that is mounted on my glasses and the visibility to the rear is great.
