BRIAN O.wrote a review of POC Ventral Spin Helmet on March 18, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
My review rating is low only because of fit expectations from the Octal / Octal Aero. Construction is solid. Vents are way better than the Octal Aero shell. My major gripe is the fit. POC made the Medium slightly smaller and it comes nowhere close to fitting my head. I have 3 Octals all size Medium, and I had to size up to Large. At first I thought I could pull it off, but it is just "too big" compared to my old Octal helmets. The internal shape seems different too judging by the way it sits on my head. I'm really disappointed that I cannot make this helmet work for my head considering they had a good thing going with the Octal. I was really looking forward to it!!
