Bold looks and exceptional performance with the additional safety of MIPS.

POC are a Swedish company, and without being overly stereotypical, the Swedes are renowned for their ability to make safety equipment that sets new standards. Just look at the seat belt… thanks to this Swedish invention a life is saved every 6 seconds. POC have taken this heritage for ingenuity and invention to design new innovative protective equipment for the most demanding bikes riders.

This is the updated and improved version of the award winning POC Octal helmet. It takes all the exceptional features of the Octal; great fitting, exceptional ventilation & ultra-lightweight construction with the additional safety features of MIPS.

MIPS stands for Multi-directional Impact Protection System, what is does is simple yet very effective. A MIPS helmet has an extra layer built in that allows for a few millimetres of rotation in the event of a crash. This seemingly small movement can reduce the rotational forces from the impact and reduce the likelihood of concussive injury.

The clever use of EPS foam density allows for high levels of crash protection yet maintains a featherweight build so you’ll hardly notice it’s there in use. The EPS liner is thicker in areas where protection is needed the most.

The EPS liner is fully wrapped with the unibody shell which enhances the safety properties of the helmet and helps keep the weight low.

Cooling is exceptionally good too owing to POC’s approach to ventilation – rather than having lots of vents POC’s approach is to have few, but larger vents to allow more air to flow through the helmet uninhibited. This has the added bonus of improving the aerodynamics along with the effective cooling.

The lightweight size adjustment system allows for a great range of adjustment to suit most head shapes with comfort. The helmets straps are molded into the helmet liner for a cleaner look and more secure attachment. The fit is complimented with the use of Coolbest pads which are used to help reduce the temperature in the interface between the helmet and the rider’s head.

As part of POC’s AVIP concept the Octal MIPS helmets is available in high vis colourways with a reflective sticker kit as well as an ICE tag. For those that don’t know ICE stands for In Case of Emergency, the ICE tags are a way of recording your emergency contact details as well as important medical information such as blood type and allergies in a scannable code that is used across the globe.

Most importantly of all the Octal helmet has an ‘eye garage’, this is a fancy way of saying that there’s a place on the helmet design to stick your sunglasses into to keep them safe when not on your face… plus it gives you that essential pro look.
