Ventral Spin tested
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought the Sm- and the Med at the same time to try both. The small fits just like the measurements on the package. Lots of adjustments to the inner cage with 4 notches extending the disk down the nape of your skull. This places the dial where you need it. Then adjust the tightness via the dial around your head. My head is a 54cm and narrow side to side. This fits awesome, the buckles and strap system is well placed and very nice , close fitting to the temples and jaw. As far as aerodynamics, it feels faster than my previous Road helmets , ie less drag on the skull when going 25 plus, or into a headwind . It’s light and seems to disappear when on. That’s the best compliment I can give it.
I like the spin pad system . Makes sense. The helmet is well built , very high quality all around. Only thing I would like to see would be a bit more room over the ears for sunglasses, but that could be how the helmets fit me. I have that issue with most helmets in the winter when wearing a thermal skullcap as it pushes the ear bows out. With no skull cap, no problem.
Highly recommended. Don’t base your sizing off the fit of other POC helmets, as I ordered the OCTAL Spin in small and med. and it fits slightly different.

I did a 3 day stage race this Friday-Sunday and loved the helmet.

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

The weight on my check weight confirmed accurate digital gram scale was 360, and 370 grams respectively. The tubes were taken right out of the box and set on the scale, single skinny rubber bands on them. So the advertised 310-326 is off, for those who care or were curious. Yes I know they are fat bike tubes, but hey they say ultra light on the box, and they are pricey, so there you go!
