Octal Helmet

POC Octal Helmet Reviews

POC's road-focused Octal has become a favorite among the XC crowd for its blend of light weight, unique styling, and protection. Road helmets are never quite a perfect match for off road applications though, so POC tweaked the design a bit to create the Octal X Helmet and give XC racers the lightweight, trail-worthy helmet they've been looking for.

As with the road version, the Octal X boasts extended coverage over the back of the head and at the temples for added protection no matter what surface you're riding on. True to its dirt-focused intention, the Octal X's shell extends to cover more of the liner foam than the Octal, which improves overall durability against errant trail debris without sacrificing lightweight functionality.

Octal - Road Cycling

I actually prefer the octal over the tectal in terms of comfort, aeration and weight. Overall this is the best helmet I have ever owned across the board. Medium has a nice range of adjustability and this helmet runs true to size.

Sometimes I forget I’m wearing it—it’s that great.
