Item # POC0106

Full coverage for big mountains.

As mountain bike technology has progressed, we’ve all benefited, and by benefited, we mean that we’ve all gotten a lot faster. Improved suspension, better tires, and stronger wheels all add up to more speed over rougher terrain. One place that hadn’t kept up, until recently, was helmet design, and it’s helmets like POC’s Trabec that have really changed what we look for in a helmet.

It starts with the shape — if there’s nothing there, how can it protect you? The Trabec extends much further down the neck and the sides of your head than other helmets, which means better protection even at the most basic level. POC’s aramid structure inside the foam, which holds the foam together in the event of an impact like rebar in concrete, and the super-tough polycarbonate shell that disperses impact force across the EPS foam to reduce the amount of impact your dome has to handle, are the helmet equivalent of a seven-inch bike you can pedal anywhere.

  • Aramid net inside EPS foam layer
  • Super-tough polycarbonate shell
  • 16 vent holes
  • Adjustable visor
  • Extended protection over typical helmets
  • Adjustable fit system

Great helmet!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I MTB off-road/trails only and was looking for a helmet that better covered the back of my head. This one fit the bill and looks great. Comfortable with plenty of adjustments to ensure a snug fit. Super glad I made the investment.
I did need to exchange an L size for XL (my head size was right on the bubble between the two sizes).

Best Helmet I've had

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is best fitting helmet I've had. I tried a few different brands and was always fidgeting with the adjustments every time I wore it. With the Trabec I set it and forget it. It ventilates well enough for me and looks nice too. I've had mine for a few years and luckily it's never taken any hard hits but if I needed to replace it I would get another.

When will you get this in Beryl Green?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Lupita,
Currently we have the Beryl Green color on order. Assuming there is no delay in getting the product we should have them available around mid April.

Protecting the Important Stuff

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this helmet as a gift for a girlfriend, she shreds on the mountain - and even though this helmet is a bit more expensive that others, but it's safety ratings seem to be much higher - and to me, it's worth protecting her brain.

Not Matte

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It looks matte in the picture but the finish is shiny. Otherwise it is great.

POC ROC

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The Trabec is a pretty comfortable helmet, with enough padding in the proper places, and a good form fitting inner shape, that has adequate room to accommodate varying head geometries. The helmet is pretty light. the ventilation is good, not as good as a cross country helmet but has good air flow. I bought the black size medium. i usually wear a size 7 1/4 in new era hats and the medium fits perfect. Has kind of a blocky look but i dig the helmet for sure.

It Works!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Took a hard fall yesterday and bounced the back of my head off of the rocks like a superball. Glad I had the protection on the back side. I really like POC products. This helmet fits very well and stays snug, but not too tight. I've had two other big head-strike falls in the last few years, and my other two helmets, while they did the job, were destroyed. The POC was dented but it was at least in one piece so I could ride back to the trailhead without too much concern about the integrity of my lid. Will be getting a replacement though. Highly recommend!

It Works!
Unanswered Question

I have this helmet, now that it's winter I'm looking for a rain cover that will fit. Any ideas of something that will fit this helmet (not including a shower cap)? Thanks

Saved My Room Mate!

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Doctor says it would have been much worse. Check out the crack through the helmet. Though it did crack still saved her noggin. Couldnt save the clavicle but, that is fixable.

Disappointed

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was astounded by the cheap construction, especially considering the cost. The plastic covering looked like it had been cut by dull scissors and hastily glued to the shell. While the size chart indicated my head size fell well within the range of the size I ordered, the helmet was too tight, even on the largest setting.

A much better helmet can be purchased for $100 less.

Love this helmet!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Very easy to adjust and it fit perfectly on my head. I have had issues over the years with finding a helmet that is comfortable and I took a risk buying this one online but it has plenty of areas to adjust and feels great. Very light weight and lots of ventilation not to mention that I think it looks great! I bought it in white and love the color!

Highly recommend!

Above average, but not perfect

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I picked this helmet up as my first mountain biking helmet, and have ridden with it several times.

What I like:
*white color option helps a bit with the heat
*size XL fits my enormous head well
*the big vents let in a good amount of breeze when I'm downhilling
*it seems to have good overall coverage

What I don't like:
*the side straps tend to shift position easily if you take the helmet off hang hang it by them
*the only thing securing the chin strap tightener is a rubber band
*the brow pads don't do a very good job of keeping sweat out of my eyes (it's been a hot summer!)

Awesome Helmet!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased this helmet after realizing my previous one was long expired and probably would not survive a minor bike wreck. I looked at POC helmets because I have a ski helmet of theirs that I LOVE! I appreciate the care they take in the adjustability of their products. The chin straps are easily modified and I love being able to secure the back of the helmet to my head so I really feel as if the helmet is part of me. I rarely remove my helmet while biking and I find this helmet is so well ventilated that if I do take it off after a climb I barely notice a temperature change. It is lightweight. I feel completely protected by the design and even though appearances shouldn't matter, I don't look ridiculous in this helmet (at least myself, my dog and my man friend don't think so). I went with the same size I ordered for my ski helmet and it fits perfectly. A couple notes, the visor does not come off which is not an issue for me but may be for some people. Also, since I don't remove my helmet while climbing I cannot speak to the ease of carrying it on a pack. The rear head adjustment is wonderful but I would be interested in a boa system if available. I didn't research that component and it may not make a difference. I happen to love the boa system in my ski helmet it might be something to look for in future helmet purchases. Overall, love this helmet and highly recommend it! POC products are expensive but for a reason. I am insanely happy with all of their products I use!

We got this helmet for my wife and she has loved it.

Fits my head well

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I ordered this helmet without even trying it on or seeing it in person and was pleasantly surprised how well it fit my head and how comfortable it was. My head also fits specialized and fox helmets for reference.

I was actually surprised by the ventilation compared to other helmets that have more vents.

Things that can be improved:
1) The adjustment hardware on the straps below the ears are not "locked" in place after the initial setup, so it comes out of adjustment if your backpack hold your helmet by the straps when transporting.
2) I with the helmet strap release on the back of the helmet wasn't a push to release. There are times when going down rocky terrain where my backpack comes up and releases the strap making my helmet loose in the worse scenario. I've adjust this strap to fit higher on my head and made a couple of adjustments on my backpack, which has reduced this significantly, but there are times that it still happens.

Awesome fit!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have a tiny head and tend to have to wear youth sizes in headwear - which in the past has meant big clunky/ugly kids helmets. But the XS/S Trabec helmet is perfect - I even have room to make it smaller if need be. I have a Smith Vantage ski helmet in Small which also lists the size as 51-54cm but I can never get that helmet tight enough or get it to stay tight enough. The Trabec has a lot more adjustability and it stays tight once you find the size you want. The visor is great in the hot Utah sun and the holes keep you nice and cool since this allows for a lot of venting.
I definitely recommend this helmet!
