Aero + Ventilation.

The POC Ventral SPIN Road Helmet is an aero road helmet that proves aero doesn't mean lack of ventilation. Featuring an innovative airflow design, the Ventral's sleek, aero shape features multiple oversized intake vents that are balanced by equally impressive exhaust vents. The deep internal channels allow for rapid airflow over the top of the head, keeping the helmet feeling cool and comfortable.

Taking their fully-wrapped unibody construction's protection to the next level, POC's patent-pending SPIN (Shearing Pad Inside) technology allows for added protection in certain impacts. By using the innovative and unique pad technology, which sit directly against the user's head and can shear in any direction during an oblique impact, SPIN pads allow the helmet to move relative to the head during a fall, reducing the force transmitted to the brain.


Features:

  • Unique aerodynamic design optimized with CFD testing for enhanced aerodynamic performance and minimal air turbulence.
  • Helmet integrated with patent-pending SPIN (Shearing Pad Inside) pads
  • Accelerated airflow zones, inspired by the venturi effect, to reduce fluid drag.
  • Extreme cooling and ventilation due to innovative airflow design.
  • High performance EPS liner with targeted and optimised density to provide the ideal balance of low weight and crash protection.
  • Fully wrapped unibody shell construction to increase safety and helmet integrity.
  • Light weight size adjustment system for a personalized fit.
  • Easily adjustable precision straps molded into the helmet liner for extra comfort and safety.
  • Eye garage to keep your sunglasses securely in position when placed on the helmet.
  • Used and preferred by Cannondale - drapac Pro Cycling Team.
  • Fit dimensions: Small 50 - 56cm; Medium 54 - 60cm; Large 56 - 61cm.

It's an expensive helmet, but how much is your brain worth?

Package arrived promptly and it was much needed as my S-Works Prevail helmet was well over 10 years old. So I needed something a bit newer.

Packaging is what you would expect for a helmet.

Fit: this helmet fits my big head perfectly. With the fine adjustment knob at the back it really made fitting into this helmet much easier. When riding, you definitely feel more of the air going through, I will wait for the warmer months to see how this truly works.

Love it!

I made the switch from Giro to POC a few months ago and couldn't be happier. The white one is great for early morning rides when the sun is still rising it is much more visible. The air flow is great and the helmet is light I never think about it on my head. I got this on sale and would not have paid $280 for it as I don't find it much different than my Octal which was like $150. I got a M and could have probably gotten a S but it fits fine!

Comfortable and quiet

The Ventral Spin fits exactly like my Ventral Air Spin, and weighs just 19g more (298g vs 279g). The Medium helmet fits nicely on my 57cm circumference head, with ample room for a cap underneath. I've only worn the Ventral Spin on cold and mild days, so I can't say how it performs in hot weather. However, it does seem "quieter" on windy days than other helmets I own. Fluorescent orange is great for safety, especially during low-light fall and winter days.

The helmet's only downsides pertain to sunglasses: 1) the "sunglass garage" flat out doesn't work, and 2) the arms of my POC Do Half Blades bump the helmet's back edges behind my ears if I don't position the arms just right. I've read this is a problem with other sunglasses as well, but don't have other sun glasses to test for comparison.

Perfect allrounder helmet

This helmet has perfect balance of lightweight, aero, comfort, safety (proprietary MIPS equivalent) and ventilation. Most helmets out there compromise at least one of these factors, but the Ventral checks all those boxes. With my old Specialized Evade my head used to get warm on hot days with sweat dripping down onto my sunglasses, by comparison the Ventral is super breezy.

I live in SoCal, so having a ventilated and aero helmet is important for me. Ive use helmets from Specialized, Giro and Lazer and the Ventral is my favorite and most comfortable so far.

Size wise I am typically on the upper end of a medium, with some brands a large. The Ventral medium was too narrow, but the large is a perfect fit and doesnt appear big on my head. I would best compare the sizing to Kask helmets after trying both on.

Poor design, no ear strap adjustment, cheep looking

Let me start by saying I've been cycling since before helmets "were a thing." I've enjoyed using many brands and have switched periodically to try new styles, technologies and various innovations. On that front POC has always been intriguing. What better way to try a new brand than dive directly into their flagship product...the Ventral Air Spin with NFC chip, wow! Like many under the current circumstances I made the purchase on-line, because I had no other choice. The helmet arrived packaged adequately. Immediately I try it on and dive into adjustments...first red flag. This helmet HAS NO EAR STRAP ADJUSTMENTS for length. In my case the ear strap falls directly over my ear...thinking this can't be right I send a note the POC folks thinking I must be missing something obvious. In response I'm told to adjust the position of the rear strap, which has nothing to do with the ear strap. Clearly the helmet is poorly designed, the issue appears to be common (i.e. I have a normal shaped head...as do all the other folks noting the same issue). Assuming a company like POC would simply say..."no worries, we get it, perhaps you got a bad run" or "yikes, want to try a different style?" I asked for their support. What they did say was "a design revision is under consideration (note to reader - this means they know this is problem), but you purchased what you did...so tough $_it."

Good thing Bike Tires Direct is a stand up company...returned and never again to purchase POC garbage.

Simply said - POOR DESIGN, WORSE CUSTOMER SUPPORT/ATTITUDE (POC that is). No adjustment to the ear steps, foam core looks like my helmets from the '80s, super cheep. Would not recommend to anyone.

Match made in heaven

Well what can I say Aero and Ventilated? Yep its both. Comfortable and feature rich? Yep its both..

Plenty of vents to keep your head cool on moderate hot days and still good for those cold days.

Super comfortable straps and padding and with a MIPs like spin capability for safety.

Long time Giro user now converted to POC..

And, BTD is the best place to purchase from

Great helmet, worth the price

Reposting review which originally showed up as anonymous

I bought the Ventral SPIN (orange, large) to replace a three year old Octal MIPS (also orange, large) that was damaged in a minor (and rather embarrassing) crash. I have not experienced any issues with the fit compared to the older helmet - fits just as well even over a Headsweats. The old helmet was well ventilated, but this one is even better. I really like the high visibility (but the old helmet had clearly faded a bit in the sun as the new one is much more orange). No complaints at all.

Good helmet for narrow heads

This helmet checks a lot of boxes aero, MIPSSpin, high scoring on helmet safety tests, well ventilated. I've used it on several hot, humid rides and never felt it was underventilated. I have a long narrow head and it fits me well. Other helmets that have fit me well are Lazer GenesisZ1, Kask Protone. GiroBell fit me terribly, made for round, bowling ball-like heads.

The straps are interesting - you can't really adjust the length under your ears but you can adjust the foreaft position of the junction. For me the straps were low enough but in order to get the angle of the helmet on my head correct, the front strap is positioned further forward on my face than most other helmets. Not bad, just different.

Very comfortable, would buy again. I hope not to need to for years.

Beware of the fit

By all accounts this is a great helmet. Ultimate I had to return it because of the fit. In my case the medium fits my head perfectly and is super comfy. The problem is with the straps which are WAY too short. The straps hit me in the ear and weren't long enough to buckle comfortably. It's almost as if they installed the straps for a size small helmet into the medium that I ordered. I tried the large but couldn't make it quite tight enough. My Octal in size medium fits brilliantly.

So - I really like the helmet. Looks great, feels great. The straps are just too short.

Does not fit like the Octal.

I bought this to replace my five year old Octal, which has been one of my favorite helmets. Unfortunately, while the Octal fit my large (size 7-58) head perfectly, the Ventral doesn't. There was barely enough room on the sides to put it on, and with a thin skullcap it was uncomfortably snug (winter hats would be out of the question).

I'm disappointed, because this is a great helmet.

Best helmet I've ever had.

I did a LOT of research and tried quite a number of helmets. I absolutely love this helmet.

I did mutiple rides on a very windy and cold day in February using both my old helmet and the POC Ventral. The cold air was great because i could immediately feel where the air was being channeled and where it wasn't. My old helmet "looked" aero, but only the very front of my head actually got cold. Using the Ventral, i could feel exactly where the air went and it was just as advertised. The venturi effect is real. After many more rides in warmer weather i can attest to its cooling. The air flow from side winds and tail winds are well above my other aero helmet due to the large air scoops.

It is surprisingly quiter than my old helmet also. I've seen other reviews that had issues with the fit of the straps but i had none, even with my gargantuan melon.

The construction is what you would expect from a quality helmet and is perfect. I love the extra proection at the back.

One of the biggest selling points to me though, and this made me SO happy to find... This helmet only really has like one small hole on the top. For those of us without as much hair up top, i used to get all sorts of weird sunbutns and tan patterns. Now that is no longer a problem. It will aid in cooling on really hot days too.

All in all, this to me is a perfect helmet.

* Notes

I ride about 2k miles a year

I have not been paid or compensated for this review. I purchased the POC Ventral with my own hard earned cash.
