Protect Your Brain With This Durable Helmet

Stay safe on your rides with powerful protective advances to keep the head cool and comfortable. Whether on the morning commute or a long weekend club ride, the POC Octal MIPS Helmet pushes you to go further. Added safety features like durable construction and MIPS technology keep you safe wherever you like to ride.

A composition of high-quality EPS liner provides optimal density thanks to a thicker core in protection zones for ideal all-round, multipurpose protection. The fully wrapped unibody shell enhances structural integrity for the gear you feel safe wearing. Multiple ventilation channels and low weight are inspired by POC's multiple award-winning road cycling helmets to deliver optimum comfort and functionality on longer rides.

By taking the Swedish company's whole-helmet approach to the creation of the POC Octal MIPS, this helmet delivers superior levels of comfort, fit and performance, and features a host of safety systems. The helmet also features the MIPS Brain Protection System, the one-of-a-kind safety feature that reduces the impacts of harmful rotational forces — keeping you safe if danger were to happen.

Features:

  • Rotational motion can cause brain injuries; with MIPS, a low-friction layer slides 10 to 15 mm in all directions, reducing rotational motion to the brain during impact
  • High-performance EPS liner is strategically thicker in the most exposed areas to enhance protection; straps are molded into the liner
  • Fully wrapped unibody shell enhances structural integrity while maintaining a low weight
  • Protection is heightened with extended coverage over the temples and at the back of the head
  • With distinctive design, this extremely lightweight helmet provides generous ventilation and comfort
  • Size adjustment system
  • Eye garage keeps your sunglasses securely in position when placed on the helmet

    I was wearing this helmet while riding my road bike. I was in bike lane but struck by a distracted driver. I suffered severe facial trauma, but thanks to the helmet, no brain or internal injuries. Thank you POC!

    A helmet fits my head.

    This helmet fits my well. Have tried bells. (Small were too small and the mediums always felt too loose unless I had a skull cap on. Specialized helmets seem too tight on the sides, but loose on the front and back. Rudy Projects have always fit well, but wanted the MIPS tech in any new helmet I get these days. Vents well and feels super light.

    Awesome helmet. Very well designed. Good ventilation, light as a feather, and unnoticeable during a ride. Having said that, my head at 22.5 inches is too small for a large and very very snug for a medium. I ended up returning a large for a medium and I feel that a snug feel is better than a loose feel. It's just unfortunate that I cant get a medium and a half size. it would be perfect. I still rock it though.

    I use the product to protect my head. So far, it has done that.

    This is the second Octal I've owned, it's a nice balance of features for cost and I like MIPS even if it ends up being marketing.

    My first POC helmet and I like it. Nicely finished, great strap system and comfortable. Have not used it in the heat so not sure about venting yet. The size adjustment dial seems a little hard to get the fingers on when wearing the helmet, but still trying this out.

    Easy adjustment to dial in helmet fit. Nice rubber feature to hold sunglasses. Straps are light and adjustable. Increased safety with MIPS. Overall, great helmet!

    I came back from a 5 day bike tour in 90 plus weather. What bother me the most was the weight of my MTB helmet. At every break, I had to take it off. I alread used a POC for road biking. I wanted another but maybe a lighter version. Bam!!! This Octal was it!!! It's so light I have to reach up and touch it while biking to make sure its on, LOL.

    POC manages to make helmets with great coverage and safety features and keep them incredibly light. This helmet practically disappears when I wear it. Lots of airflow, easy to adjust. Hope I never need the MIPS but am glad to have it.

    This helmet saved my wife's life from a crash. I had $30,000 in expenses but no funeral expense. Afterwards I bought POC helmets for my sons, their wives and four grandchildren, plus an update to MIPS version for me. Worth every penny.
