The award-winning Octal gets a protection boost via brain-protecting MIPS technology. The Octal MIPS Road Cycling Helmet retains the superb fit and ventilation of the original, making this version the best yet.
The distinctive design of the Octal MIPS Road Helmet is the first thing to catch the eye. But function and form are closely linked here, with ventilation, comfort and protection intertwined perfectly to create both a high level of performance and the eye-catching design.
Safe to its Core
At the heart of the performance is the safety provided by the combination of shock-absorbing EPS foam core, made thicker in more vulnerable areas, and MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) technology. In the event of a crash both work hand in hand to absorb and dissipate harmful impacts to the head and brain. The protection is further heightened by the extended coverage over the temples and at the back of the head. A unibody outer shell wraps the inner core, enhancing both durability and structural integrity all while minimising weight.
Go With the Flow
Protection is of course paramount. But comfort is also vital, and here the Octal MIPS excels. Firstly, large forward airflow vents are engineered to draw in air, internal channels keep the flow smooth and large exhaust vents dispel warm damp air. Cooling airflow is the result.
POC also use Coolbest padding inside. This temperature-regulating pad minimises temperature build-up at the helmet to head contact points. Lastly, a lightweight size adjustment system makes getting the right fit remarkably quick and easy. The right fit means greater comfort and more security should you fall.
MIPS Integra Technology
The MIPS Integra system brings together POC's 'whole-helmet' safety and design ethos with the brain-protecting technology of MIPS. This holistic approach sees every detail of the helmet engineered to work in harmony with each other, giving you new levels of integrated safety, comfort, ventilation, aerodynamics, fit and function.
POC is a Swedish company, built on a strong mission; to do everything we can to possibly save lives and to reduce consequences of accidents, for gravity sports athletes, by developing and renewing what personal protection is all about. POC has in many ways already set a new standard when it comes to technical solutions, construction, material combinations and engineering, with patented solutions, to increase the degree of protection. POC works in a cross scientific way, from the office at Nacka gatan 4, in Stockholm. The organization involves competences from different fields, such as engineers, material specialists, industrial and graphic designers, neurologists and back specialists. Stockholm is an important centre for some of Europe’s leading research and development experts in the areas of safety, medicine, health care, advanced product development and testing. It's our mission to do everything we can to develop protective gear that can save lives and reduce the severity of injuries. All our products have been tested by top world gravity sport athletes and then further refined to perfection. Our athlete friends love to go flat out but without suffering cuts, bruises and headaches, or in the worst cases, risking back or brain damage as a result of crashes that sadly happens to even the best athletes. The end result is a line of lightweight, high performance gear that offers the ultimate protection against injury thanks to superior impact absorption and penetration resistance. When developing a product at POC, we do it in the spirit of doing the best. We never compromise in choosing materials or construction, and we never compromise safety, quality or performance.
