POC - Octal - Bohrium Red
The lightweight Octal helmet is engineered to be the next step in road bike helmet safety and offers optimal ventilation, comfort, and low weight.
Even though it offers more coverage and increased protection thanks to an optimized and strategically partially thicker EPS liner, the weight is kept very low, sub 200g. This is achieved thanks to the fully wrapped unibody shell, which functions as a monocoque, that enhances the safety properties and construction integrity of the helmet.
When developing the Octal helmet, POC approached ventilation in an innovative way. Instead of using many small vents the Octal helmet has fewer, but larger, ventilation slots. This design provides a larger open surface area at the front, and in combination with the specifically designed interior, allows more air to flow through the helmet, optimizing ventilation.
The Octal helmet has an ultralight size adjustment system that will ensure a secure fit. The internal padding is made of a technical fabric, which reduces the temperature of the contact area touching the skin. Since visibility is a key factor in road bike safety, the Octal helmet comes in high visibility colors and with reflective patches.
