Robust protection for the trail rider.

With the all-new Tectal Race SPIN NFC MTB Helmet, POC has taken features from several of their award-winning helmets to create a level of protection and ventilation previously unseen in the realm of mountain bike helmets. POC's patent-pending SPIN (Shearing Pad INside) silicone pad technology system builds on the 'whole-helmet' approach to protection. The design and construction deliver outstanding levels of comfort and fit while remaining a high-performance trail and enduro must-have.

Extra security and peace of mind.

The patent-pending SPIN rotational impact protection system is designed to reduce the effects of an oblique fall by reducing the amount of force transmitted to the head and brain. Sitting directly against your head and able shear in any direction during an oblique impact, SPIN pads let the helmet move relative to your head, reducing the force of impact.

To improve the structural integrity and safety, the helmet uses an aramid bridge system and reinforced EPS low, whole the unibody shell allows the weight of the helmet to remain low.

A RECCO® Reflector keeps you searchable in the wilderness if things go wrong. Rescue services around the world rely on RECCO® radar reflection technology to scan large areas as they search for lost souls.


  • The helmet speaks for you: an NFC Medical ID tag stores your medical profile that can then be read easily and quickly by any first responder at the scene of an accident with any NFC-enabled smartphone.
  • Fully wrapped unibody shell construction to improve helmet strength
  • Helmet integrated with patent-pending SPIN (Shearing Pad Inside) pads
  • Lightweight
  • Highly ventilated using POC's unique ventilation design
  • Aramid bridge technology integrated with liner for enhanced structural integrity
  • High-performance PC shell covering more of the liner to improve safety and protection against sharp objects
  • Simple and easy adjustment system for a perfect fit
  • Precision straps molded into liner for extra comfort
  • Goggle Clip
  • Adjustable visor
  • Recco reflector

Good coverage with minor issue of spin part $

This is my second Tectal SPIN helmet, with the previous version the non-NFC model. Not sure what NFC brings to the helmet, since I suspect emergency medical staff are probably not going to take advantage of it, given that only POC seems to offer the feature, and POC isn't exactly the most popular of helmet brand in the US, anyway. Regardless, no points deducted for that. Just extra feature that doesn't subtract from the helmet's effectiveness.

That said, the helmet comfortably fits my large melon, has decent airflow, and the visor helps to deflect sun, lights (especially the charming strobe users on our local MUP), insects, and rain. It's a mountain bike design, but I use it mostly for commuting on road and MUP, as I need the extra coverage it affords, thanks to the local drive intent on killing me..

So my minor gripe concerns the SPIN liner that functions as a MIPS replacement (guessing POC didn't want to pay the fee). It appears to work, with some rotational function to it, as my MIPS equipped Fox Speedframe Pro exhibits. The gripe is that the liner eventually breaks apart (separation of silicone and fabric) from sweat after about six months of use. Replacements cost $25, which seems excessive when you see it.

So, great helmet, but not so great to have to keep forking out $25 every six months.

Due to 3 brain surgeries I want to protect my head with the best product I can buy. Having a visor is very important as well because I ride a recumbent trike. This is my 3rd POC helmet. I love the fit, protection, & style. I feel safe with a POC on my head. I unfortunately had a bike wreck a few years ago & had 3 brain bleeds. I thought I was wearing a good helmet at the time, but after doing research I found there was a better choice. I'm glad I made the choice.
