Description

The Octal X helmet has been developed from the same technology and design as the award-winning Octal road helmet, notably the extreme ventilation, low weight, unibody shell construction and aerodynamic efficiency. To perfectly suit the needs of cross country mountain biking the Octal X has added robustness and protection. The inclusion of POCs proven aramid bridge technology adds structural integrity and guards against impact penetration. A fundamental feature in the Octal X’s improved performance and safety is the extended helmet shell, which covers more of the helmet liner ensuring that the helmet has enhanced strength properties with very little increase in weight.

A good light helmet which fits well

The helmet fits well and is comfortable. Seems to be well ventilated, and is not noticably noisy at speed. Extra pads are a nice addition. Is hard to slot spot sunglasses into vents, and the eye garage doesnt work with non-poc shades.

Pros

  • Weight
  • Alleged protection
  • Ventilation
  • Quiet

Cons

  • Not cheep
  • Eye garage is useless

High quality,comfiest and stands out

I have had giro synthe and bontrager ballista. Both have good ventilation, good looks and fit well. But this poc helmet exceeds them in all of those categories - also in safty. Sometimes i like to use classic looking helmets and other times i feel even proud to wear something that isn t THAT mainstream. Not every cool thing is mainstream! ☝

Pros

  • If you want to be cool, buy this

Cons

  • If you want to be mainstream, don t buy.
