POC Octal Aero Raceday Helmet
In POC's short history of producing cycling helmets, they have quickly gained popularity for their eye-catching designs and protective features. Now being raced in some of the biggest races on the planet, POC has launched their Raceday range.
The POC Octal Aero Raceday Helmet is a must-have for those serious about comfort, looks and performance. Featuring a durable, fast and stylish covered design, ideal for road, time trials, triathlon, Ironman events or anyone who wants unparalleled speed gains. This helmet, with the added external micro-shell, is sure to be the helmet of choice for those fast, windy early season Classic races in Belgium.
With all POC helmets, safety is of paramount importance. Protection is covered by a specially constructed Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) liner, thicker in the crucial areas prone to impact. This liner is covered by a polycarbonate (PC) outer shell that provides more coverage to vulnerable areas, such as the temples. The unibody shell construction is incredibly strong and results in a very lightweight helmet, a mere 215 grams in its medium size.
The Octal Aero Raceday Helmet is designed to be aerodynamic but also well ventilated. Ventilation is catered for with carefully positioned air vents, channelling airflow to keep your head cool. A Coolbest padding system has been installed on the inside of the helmet. This further enhances airflow and moisture control, reducing the temperature between the helmet and your head. This futuristic-looking helmet has won POC many fans and awards. The seamless integrated helmet straps moulded into the liner make for a clean and unobtrusive profile. The POC Octal Aero Raceday Helmet has a wrap-around, full head protection fit, helped by the minimalist, simple yet highly effective retention system. This allows the rider to dial the fit to their exact personal preference. In a range of stunning colours, all with dynamic POC graphics and Raceday logos, the POC Aero Raceday Helmet does not just look fast, it allows you to ride fast as well.
