Scott Justesenwrote a review of POC Ventral Air Spin Helmet on July 5, 2019
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I previously owned a POC Octal. Last year I was in a collision with an inattentive driver. My GPS stopped at 25 mph on impact. My head hit and demolished the drivers side steel mirror and roof pillar. The impact side of the helmet was cracked and one of the retention straps snapped. No concussion. When I ordered a replacement helmet there was no debate in my mind what brand I was going to go with.
I ordered the Ventral Air Spin as a replacement and it fit out of the box. I live in Phoenix and was very impressed with the Octals ventilation. The Ventral Air Spins ventilation is as good but this one seems to fit better. While I hope no one has to test the protective properties of any helmet I assure you a POC will do its job and do it well at the moment of truth.
