Sitting at the top of POCs road cycling lineup, the Ventral Air SPIN isn't just a clever name. With precise ventilation ports and internal channels to control air intake and release at both low and high speeds, the Ventral Air SPIN provides maximum cooling over the whole head. The fully wrapped unibody shell construction and EPS liner give the helmet a great balance of light weight and safety while the aerodynamically optimized trailing edge of the helmet has been specially designed to reduce turbulence giving the Ventral Air SPIN an aerodynamic advantage over many road cycling helmets. Aside from the aerodynamics engineered into the helmet, POCs SPIN (Shearing Pad Inside) technology has been designed to absorb energy and exert less acute stress on your brain during an impact, so its no wonder that the Ventral Air SPIN won the coveted Design and Innovation Award 2019.



Features & Specs:

  • ~270g (size M)
  • Precise ventilation ports and internal channels for maximum cooling
  • Fully wrapped unibody shell for optimum construction
  • SPIN technology for superior protection

Sizing (in head circumference):

  • Small: 50-56cm
  • Medium: 54-59cm
  • Large: 56-61cm

I love this helmet

I've been mulling over a new helmet for a while and the Ventral Air Spin was at the top of my list. I'm wary of ordering helmets online but grabbed a great deal here on BTD so I figured I'd give it a shot.

Overall, I'm very pleased with this helmet. It's incredibly comfortable and vents exceptionally well. My biggest complaint about it is the same that I have with most helmets---the included pads just aren't very absorbent, so sweat is dripping into my eyes within half an hour in the southern U.S. heat. I have a separate sweat-absorbant helmet liner (Sweathawg) that works well here, so it's an easy fix.

Past that, the helmet has been worth every penny. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who's on the fence.

great ventilation, the spin feature seems to let the shell move

I'm very pleased with this helmet. The spin feature lets the shell move while the lining remains in place, which I believe is how it is designed. My head might be a little narrow, so it seems like the shell might rest to one side ever so slightly (maybe 1-2 mm). It doesn't bother me and I don't think it is noticeable unless you're looking for it. Otherwise the fit is excellent and the ventilation is great.

A Life Saved

How do you determine the value of a helmet? A week ago my wife hit a tree rut in the street hidden in shadows. Her bike flipped out from under her and she when down-hard. She landed on the back of her head where the POC helmet wraps around better than nearly every other helmet. It buckled. It split. But the ER nurse said that the design saved her life, and the nurse was going to buy the same helmet for her daughter and herself as soon as she got home.

For me this was the best value of anything I have ever purchased for cycling. I am now waiting for the same helmet for my daughter-in-law and two grandchildren. I already purchased a replacement for my wife to use when she can start riding again.

POC rules

This POC (Ventral Air) successfully checks the same boxes that had me raving about it's "lesser" sibling -- the (Octal). It's light, ventilation is good, and it's so damn comfortable. The only think keeping it from earning five stars across the board is the price, which is a bit steep, especially considering the Octal, in my opinion, is easily as good for $50 less.

My bottom line, having tried Giro, Bell, Kask, Bontrager helmets, I'd rate both of my POCs better than the whole lot of them.

POC Ventral Air SPIN (White/White)

This POC helmet fits a bit differently than the helmet I replaced, so the first longish ride was a little uncomfortable as I got a headache from the pressure it put on my forehead (I believe). It just took a little bit of adjustment in forward tilt of it on my head. I don't know why that wasn't intuitive or why it didn't feel natural for me to wear it that way, but it seems to have worked itself out. The shape of the helmet seems to be a bit more round than oval, so this might explain the different feeling of it. Anyway, all is well now and I have completed a handful of centuries wearing the POC Ventral Air SPIN with no problems whatsoever.

The venting is absolutely noticeably cooler. Tennessee summers are brutally hot/humid - like being zipped up in a wet sleeping bag in the blazing sun with hot moist cotton shoved up your nose - truly, it sucks here from mid June to September. I noticed the difference in ventilation to my noggin' immediately when I hit ~20mph or so. It was wonderful.

I got the pure white on white and it really stands out from a visibility aspect. I think it looks sharp and with the fit characteristics figured out now I can wear a cap underneath it on colder mornings this fall/winter. I'm very pleased with this helmet.

I like it ... ah lot

I bought a white one.

Then, I liked it so much (and with the current "get it while you can" climate) I bought a black one too.

I'd argue that having 2 colors of the same helmet is not excessive, because they match any of my socks now.

It's a great helmet. I recommend waiting for it go on sale though, during one of BikeTireDirect's awesome sales, of course.

After years switched from a Smith, which was always way too hot and this helmet fits great, is light and vents well. As another reviewer noted, will not hold Rudy, and a few other glasses.

Love this helmet!

This is my second POC Ventral Air Spin. First one was damaged protecting my head in a crash on some black ice. My head was fine, the helmet not so much, just as designed. This helmet has amazing airflow, the garage for the sunglasses is great, and I couldn't ask for a better fit

Light and cool

This helmet is relatively light (about 270g) and fits well. Size medium is comparable to medium helmets from other brands. The helmet provides great ventilation on hot days, I've worn it in temperatures over 100F and have no complaints. Also, AVIP orange is very bright and can be spotted far away in low and normal light conditions.

Saved my life!!!!!

This was my second POC helmet...I have always love the safety features and weight. It was time for a new helmet so I contacted Biketiresdirect and got a new one within 3 days! Flash forward 2 weeks later and I was involved in a cycling accident. I was struck from behind by a delivery truck traveling at 50 mph. The truck swerved into the bike lane where I was riding hit me and carried me along for several hundred feet before throwing me off onto the side of the road. I suffered a broken arm, 14 broken rib (entire left side), 10 vertebreas... but I had no concussion or any head injuries. The helmet was cracked but it definitely served its purpose. I am recovering well although it is a long recovery...I will be getting a new POC before riding again.

It has been difficult to find Helmets over the last 40 years that fit my Pin Head, and look tasteful when riding. POC has done a terrific job in both categories. The ventilation is fantastic! I definitely recommend this Helmet!

Comfortable and cool

I bought a blaze orange version of the Ventral Air SPIN (already reviewed) and liked it enough to buy a second one in white for raceday. My second one checks all the same boxes lightweight (270g for a medium), fits nicely on my 57cm head, and ventilates well on hot days in the 90F-100F degree range...One gripe that i didn't mention in my first review is the sunglass garage. POC added grippy tape on the inside of two front vents, but the vents don't hold my sunglass arms securely-and I wear POC Do Half Blades. In you are going to stash shades in the helmet, the rear vents fix the sunglass arms more securely in place. This is a minor gripe, overall the Ventral Air Spin is a quality helmet that hopefully adds a bit of concussion protection over other non-MIPS helmets.

Great helmet and ventilation

Was looking for a helmet for the hot summer days and this helmet fit the bill in all aspects. Looks, fit and ventilation. As the weather is heating up in SoCal, Ive worn this helmet on a number of climbing rides and it has kept the sweat off my face and head cool. The mesh padding and spin feature works as described and its very comfortable. Highly recommend!

The discount from BTD was icing on the cake! BTD is my go to for cycling needs!

Comfortable and lightweight

The Ventral Air Spin is a nice update to the Octal. Fit is similar, but with a lower profile, better ventilation, and more robust chin strap retainer. I also appreciate that SPIN (POC's MIPS-like anti-concussion technology) is standard so you're not forced to choose between more or less brain protection...My medium size helmet fits my 58cm skull comfortably, and weighs 273g (- 2%). I bought AVIP orange for enhanced visibility on the road, and gosh is it bright-as in road cone bright orange that pops out in low light conditions...One caveat the fixed chin straps ride a tad high on the sides, and might get too close to one's earlobes for comfort. They don't bother me but could be a problem for you depending on head shape and helmet size
