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.
