Brand POC
Road Helmet Type All-round helmet
Weight 198 grams
Extra protection No
All specifications


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!

No better helmet for road bike

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

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!!
