Item # POC00B1

New standards, improved safety.

Enduro season is upon you, the dirt is perfectly tacky, and the temperatures have yet to rise to oppressive levels and you're ready to hit the trail with no holds barred — just make sure to cover your dome first. Making a stylish case for safety, POC's Tectal Race is updated with new Spin technology to boost it into the future, helping dissipate rotational forces from certain styles of crashes, while still backing you up with the impact-absorbing EPS foam and PC shell you've come to know and trust.

POC's new Spin technology works by featuring a robust inner layer on the helmet that sits in between the EPS and your noggin, and allows the helmet to move in any direction in the case of an oblique fall, allowing force to dissipate and be absorbed into the helmet.

Borrowing design inspiration from its Octal and Trabec helmets, POC uses a clean style and unibody construction for the Tectal Race, extending coverage over the back of the head and temples to keep vulnerable areas protected in the event of a crash. Keeping comfort in mind, POC also carves 15 vents and a lengthy system of air channels throughout the Tectal Race so you won't overheat under your lid when you start working hard on a climb. If you need to make a quick fit adjustment on-trail, just spin the dial at the back of the helmet to get the fit you need, and before you head out, tuck your goggles into the goggle strap at the back and adjust the visor to shield your eyes from sun, rain, or the dirt your ride buddy is bound to spray up in front of you.

  • A full-coverage helmet for getting rowdy on the trail
  • Unibody construction gives sturdy protection to your melon
  • New Spin technology helps absorb oblique impacts
  • PC and EPS combine to absorb and dissipate big hits
  • Let your scalp breathe with 15 large vents
  • Adjustable fit dials in for comfort
  • Goggle strap secures into place for muddy enduro days

Works for me

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I like that the helmet comes further down in the back and further down over the temple area...just in case. I don't have any complaints. Fits my head great!

this helmet is SO dope!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is probably the best helmet I have ever used. You cannot go wrong with it. NO BS!

Slight conflict with sunglasses

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There is a small downturn in the helmet that conflicts slightly with the temples of sunglasses (I wear Oakley Jawbreakers). I end up having to lift up my glasses and the helmet while descending occasionally (2-3 times during a 2 hour ride). Not horrible but something to be aware of. Otherwise really like the helmet and its already saved me a few times

Excellent protection and very comfortabl

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a very comfortable and very full featured helmet. I had worn a POC Trabec in the past and this element replaced the Specialized Ambush which I’ve worn for the last three seasons. After the ambush cracked I was looking for something that had slip playing technology but knowing that MIPS makes helmets hot (my road helmet has MIPS) I was looking for something different. This helmet is low profile, light, and airy. While not as light as the ambush it is significantly more comfortable on the head, and seems to provide an equal or greater amount of ventilation. It’s cents more low profile than the Trabec but has equal amounts of coverage. I believe this is my favorite helmet I’ve owned since the original Giro Xen started the category years ago.

Excellent low profile helmet.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This lid fits super low on your head, feeling more like a bucket helmet. The low volume design doesn't leave you looking like a mushroom

Unanswered Question

What are the inner dimensions. I mean large and width dimension on M/L.
