Brand POC
Including Visor No
Ventilation ★★★★
Road Helmet Type All-round helmet
Weight 198 grams
Extra protection No



The award-winning POC Octal was POC's attempt at creating a helmet which pushes bike helmet safety, ventilation, and comfort to the next level. As a result, the helmet weighs less than 200 grams in a size M.

In order to better guarantee your safety POC has added extra protection around the temples and back of the head. These parts are usually the most vulnerable of your head.

POC has taken a whole new approach at bike helmet ventilation. Rather than using a multitude of small vents, POC uses fewer but larger apertures for ventilation. This means your head can stay cool in even the warmest conditions.

In short, the POC Octal is a highly innovative helmet with equally striking looks!

Excellent product

- Andrew 30 June 2020

Can’t rate this helmet highly enough Bd purchased at a great price from Mantel. Did extensive homework on the best helmets out there and the Poc Octal gets rave reviews. For me it’s a great looking helmet but also offers superb protection at a very light weight so you can hardly feel it when worn. Extremely happy with my purchase and the price I paid plus it was delivered for free within 48 hours! Would recommend this helmet and Mantel to anyone.

Pros & Cons

Extremely protective

Great helmet, best I’ve ever owned. Arrived in two days and have been wearing it since, definitely worth a few extra pounds for the protection and the comfort.

Pros & Cons

Quite pricey

5 / 5

No better helmet for road bike

- Rob 16 December 2018

I've crashed and replaced this helmet more times than I'd care to admit. It's like landing on a pillow. Best helmet on the market for sure. I wouldn't buy any other

Brilliant helmet would totally recommend

- Gary 10 November 2017

I have a POC Octal now for just under a year! I love the fit how comfortable it is! I love how when I wear a cap it still fits perfectly but ultimately when I crashed the other day it did exactly what it was meant to do and protected me with out any issue whatsoever!! As they say it did what it said on the tin!!

5 / 5

Really nice helmet!

- Paul 14 August 2017

Right...crashed on the first one, helmet done its job, I landed on my head, but my head was fine, so top helmet!, ordered another one from mantel!, as for mantel, has to be the best mail order company I've used, swift couple of days turn around, will deffo order from them again and recommend to my friends!

Pros & Cons

Looks not to everyone's taste!
