kaiwrote a review of POC Receptor Flow Helmet on November 8, 2014
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I admit that I bought the Receptor Flow for the looks. It's good that it's safe too, but I've never tested that. I do everything with this lid, from rock climbing to skiing to biking, though I don't think it's certified for the former two. When I got it, it fit funny, but after a while, it broke in and got comfortable. Though my head should be a 'large' I bought the Xl/xxl size so I could wear a hat beneath it and it fits great because of the adjustment system. the only complaint is one I've seen before, the front pad's polygiene layer is coming apart from the foam. They send you another one with the helmet and if worst comes to worst, it's not hard to glue it in. besides that, it's really well built and I don't foresee any build issues.
Also, way less important, but Go Pro curved mounts fit the helmet really well.
Ventilation is okay, not the greatest, but not bad either.
Depending on where you live, people might ask you about it. It's definitely a unique, cool looking helmet that I genuinely love and trust that I feel was (and still is) worth the money.
