Description

Why We Like The Octal MIPS Helmet

When we're covering our craniums in anticipation of a big ride, we're looking for a few things on our dream helmet checklist: Comfort, ventilation, and fit. The Octal MIPS Helmet checks off every box. POC is a Swedish company with a mission to protect our lives and reduce the consequences of accidents for all athletes. Riding trails, gravel, or racing across tarmac, POC has our back. The Octal MIPS Helmet is distinctly airy with large vents that help offer airflow, and it's lined with EPS, which is thicker in the most exposed areas for further protection. Extended coverage is included over the temples and the back of the head. The fully-wrapped unibody shell enhances structural integrity, but also maintains a low weight. For comfortability, POC designed the Octal MIPS Helmet with ergonomic straps that are fully adjustable and ensure an appropriate fit.

  • A helmet that checks off all the boxes on your list
  • Protection from a fully wrapped unibody shell construction
  • Fully ventilated with POC's innovative ventilation system
  • Fit adjustment system that securely and comfortably fastens
  • Straps molded into liner for a streamlined fit
  • High-performance EPS liner adds protection

Got this to replace my POC Ventral Spin Air, after its SPIN pad assembly kept detaching from the inside at the front of the helmet, I assume leaving me without SPIN protection. The Octal’s MIPS system has pads too, but they act simply as cushions, the MIPS feature is separate. Striking how different the two helmets look when placed side by side. The Octal has a far larger “footprint” when viewed from above, but is not as tall viewed from the side. POC tech says the Ventral is designed for a more oval head, the Octal for a more round one. Both are extremely comfortable for my head’s shape, whatever it is. The Octal is quite light, I scarcely notice it during a ride - a good thing. Mine included a spare set of interior pads and a fabric helmet bag. Delivery was astonishingly quick: ordered it Monday, got it Weds, UPS Ground from the VA warehouse to here in CT.

it's my first MIPS helmet and man I love it, the fit is perfect. I also have a POC mtb helmet that I love and this one is well ventilated and comfortable. the fit and finish is really great. I don't even know I'm wearing it while riding.
