Ray B.wrote a review of POC Ventral Air Spin Helmet on May 11, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I love my POC Octal. I wear a Medium and it's a perfect fit. Best ventilated helmet I've ever worn. Have had Medium in Specialized Prevails in the past for comparison. So, I ordered the Medium in the Ventral Air. It's not the same fit. It feels smaller front to back and sits a bit higher than the Octal. The straps are Not adjustable vertically despite what some have said and they sit on my ear lobes. They are too 'short'. I tried the Large and it is simply too big even with the retention system fully-tightened. The Medium will probably do but no telling how it will feel after wearing it for hours out on the bike. I did feel some minor 'pressure' that I have not felt with the Octal. Hard to pinpoint the reason for poor fit. Maybe the SPIN padding is a little bulkier or the design is simply different. Disappointed with POC but pleased with the service from Competitive Cyclist.
