Ultralight Ventilation For Rides That Bring The Heat

The POC Octal MIPS Helmet employs a distinctive design based around fewer, larger vents providing optimal ventilation and comfort on the longest and hottest cycling tours. Updated to include MIPS, the Octal road cycling helmet is optimized to perfectly balance protection and performance.

The helmet's EPS liner is thicker in the zones where most impacts occur, giving every rider enhanced protection where it is most needed. The Octal's fully wrapped unibody shell enhances the structural stiffness of the helmet, giving optimum strength at a low weight.

Developed for protection without a weight penalty, the Octal MIPS also features a lightweight size adjustment system and adjustable chin straps, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit.

    Works very well as in very comfortable.

    I've tested this helmet on several occasions where I ended up in the hospital. Yes, I bought a new helmet after each "test" and my head never was the worst of my injuries.

    That's why I continue to buy the same helmet over and over.

    Lightweight with good ventilation

    The Octal MIPS is extremely lightweight with good ventilation. I like how far down the helmet comes in the back for better coverage.

    Wonderful helmet

    This helmet is comfy and well vented. The glasses garage is such a nice thing to have as well! Plus, after a crash at around 40mph my noggin was safe.
