Mark T.wrote a review of POC Tectal Helmet on June 17, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
is the one that you actually WEAR.
I have another helmet that is very comfortable, the Troy Lee A1. But it can be very warm, so when summer rolls around I just ditch the lid. Two months ago, on the way back home from an overnighter, I got swiped by a car and thrown over the bars. Hard. The concussion, 36 stitches, and four teeth knocked out kind of hard. As bad as it was, it could have been a LOT worse. So I began a search for a helmet that had better airflow than my TLD A1. Tried a bunch of helmets, including the TLD A2, which I expected to be the winner. I found the Tectal to not only be cooler than the A2, but also much more comfortable. I’ll still wear my trusty A1 during the shoulder seasons and winter, but the Tectal is my new lid for warmer temps. Because you don’t always get second chances to not be stupid.
