Nice design but the fit is awful

I like the design of this helmet, covering the back and front of the head nicely. However, the helmet requires a very tall head. I have a large head circumference, so need the XL size, but the helmet comes down to my eyebrows and, because it wraps nicely around the back of the head, there is no way to adjust this. I have worn it for two very uncomfortable rides - I have to tilt my head way back to look down the trail and it rattles on my prescription sunglasses. I am going to have to buy a different helmet - this one is not safe for me. I had the Trabec and loved it, until a crash broke it. It fit well, covered my head nicely, and was light in weight.

Excellent Helmet
by Everardo

I decided to purchase this helmet after doing a little bit of research. I really wanted to get something that had the MIPS technology integrated but after learning about the SPIN tech found in this one, I decided it was just as good if not better. Ive always loved the look of the Tectal Race helmet and was pleasantly surprised when it fit my odd shaped head. BLUF if youre looking for the best thing to put on your head when shredding the local trails, buy this helmet.

Excellent helmet
by Anonymous

I tried on several different brands before deciding on the POC Tectal Race Spin. It was tops for comfort and the extra coverage is what I was looking for. When riding it vents very well. I wear eyeglasses and I have had no issues with the helmet contacting my glasses. The Spin lining is gel like and very comfortable......more so than other brands I tried on with their versions of protection. The straps fit my head perfectly and are easy to adjust. Expensive, but in my opinion the high level of comfort and protection is worth it to me. Highly recommended.

Performed well in a crash and well ventilated
by Jeff

I have used a number of helmets for road and mountain. This one is well ventilated and has a comfortable fit. I was in the mountains on a narrow track and hit a washed out culvert hidden by overgrowth. I fell into a ravine and hit hard on a pile of rocks. I knew I hit my head, but I didn't get the jolted feeling I've had in other helmets. There was a deep focal dent in the helmet where it hit the pointy end of a rock. Not to over-dramatize but the helmet probably saved me from a very serious injury. Whatever they do to engineer these things to cushion the brain worked for me. This is a single anecdote, but I will put my kids in POC.

Despite being expensive, given that it did its job extremely well, I give it a high-value rating. Your local hospital probably charges more for a bandaid.

Solid protection, room for improvement
by Eian

My head circumference is 60 cm so I bought the XLXXL. I'm new to mountain biking and wanted to use a mtb specific helmet instead of my Kask Protone to have more coverage for my temples and occiput. My first thought coming from my road helmet was that the Tectal was huge in comparison (but that was what I was looking for) but unfortunately not very comfortable. My main complaint thus far is the retention system. While the chin straps are fine (integrated into the helmet on either side is always better than a single piece that twists), the issue is the adjustable portion at the rear. Because of how deep the helmet sits on my head, these extremely thin, fairly sharp edged straps run just above my ears (a lot lower than a normal road helmet). Because I have little hair here, the straps put uncomfortable pressure on my skin. Because the helmet sits low, it's also lacking a bit of padding in the front for my forehead (the SPIN pads are super minimalistic, especially in XL when they don't appear to enlarge to fill the helmet as they do in smaller sizes). So I have a pretty big head but I can definitely see some head shapes andor short hair cutsbald riders not working well with this helmet because it has so much coverage and uncomfortable retention straps.

I have many helmets over the last 30 years of riding. The POC is by far the best fix most comfortable and stable helmet I have use.

I can't see my self buying anything else.

Lusting over this for a year, hard to find. Did not disappoint, fits like a glove. No need to adjust, super light and comfy for a boss fit. Buy it!

&- compared to Trabec race Mips
by Sam
1 of 1 customers found this review helpful.

Better ventilation compared to Trabec. Helmet shape is different though and the Trabec fits my head shape better. This tectal has the Reese retention system retracted as far into the helmet as possible (quite difficult to adjust as it feels like youll break it) and I still get some pressure feeling from the front of the helmet on my forehead.

If I could have the overall fit of the Trabec with the improved visor and ventilation and Spin system, Id be super stoked.
