    Details

    Full coverage for big mountains.

    As mountain bike technology has progressed, we’ve all benefited, and by benefited, we mean that we’ve all gotten a lot faster. Improved suspension, better tires, and stronger wheels all add up to more speed over rougher terrain. One place that hadn’t kept up, until recently, was helmet design, and it’s helmets like POC’s Trabec that have really changed what we look for in a helmet.

    It starts with the shape — if there’s nothing there, how can it protect you? The Trabec extends much further down the neck and the sides of your head than other helmets, which means better protection even at the most basic level. POC’s aramid structure inside the foam, which holds the foam together in the event of an impact like rebar in concrete, and the super-tough polycarbonate shell that disperses impact force across the EPS foam to reduce the amount of impact your dome has to handle, are the helmet equivalent of a seven-inch bike you can pedal anywhere.

    • Aramid net inside EPS foam layer
    • Super-tough polycarbonate shell
    • 16 vent holes
    • Adjustable visor
    • Extended protection over typical helmets
    • Adjustable fit system
    • Item #POC0106

    I love my Trabec!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had my Trabec for about a year and a half now, and still love it. It's a comfortable fit, and I really like the style of it, plus it protects your cranium, while you look cool and feel good in it!



    Mine is bright blue, which is true to color in the photos.

    I really dig the way POC does their helmet sizing in general. As opposed to the S,M,L or S-M, L-XL that a lot of brands run, they offer a M-L, which is perfect for me, as I have an "extra medium" head that needs something in between most medium and large helmets.

    I love my Trabec!

    Quality Helmet

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    This was a gift for my son who rides the mount trails in Utah. Visibility to non-riders (hence the Bohrium Red color) and rider safety were my priorities. He has a POC ski helmet that provides great head protection and fit; it's great to find the same quality in a bike helmet. Ordered an X-LG and the fit is good; also like the adjustable piece in the back for a better fit, but wonder about durability.
    Most of all, the customer service at Backcountry.com is excellent! (tired of spending hard earned dollars and not getting good service over all) Great shopping experience and thanks again folks at Backcountry.com!

    Comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    lets face it, the main reason people hate their helmet is it doesn't fit right. The POC has an adjustable fit that makes this a non-issue. Get one of these, protect your head and have a good ride.

    It Works!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Used the helmet for two years. Very comfortable and secure in all riding conditions. Walked away after a wreck from death wobble landing head first. Torn pectoral and bicep tendon but not even a headache worth mentioning. Great product. Bought another.

    Awesome helmet!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This helmet fits great and is super light weight. I purchased this helmet after reading all the reviews and so far it has lived up to the hype. The one downside is that it doesn't breathe incredibly well, but that won't knock down my rating.

    Secure retention, sleek style.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Coming from an ill-fitting helmet a size too big, the Trabec was a near godsend by fitting perfectly around my mid-sized noggin (I ordered the medium/large). Its sleek and stylish demeanor is a bit flashy, but not overboard like others on the market. Plenty of ventilation keeps my head relatively cool on sweaty climbs and rides through exposed stretches. Lastly, the rear retention system allows for a secure fit, with one-handed adjustments while you're riding.

    Solid and Stylish Helmet

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had this helmet for about a year now and it's served me very well. I (thankfully) upgraded from a cheaper helmet after a rough "endo" crash riding Bobsled in Salt Lake City, UT.
    The fit and coverage of this helmet is very impressive! You can tackle just about any trail out there with this bad boy and feel confident while doing so.

    Pros:
    - Really rad design
    - Fits very well and comfortably

    Cons:
    - A bit heavier than other helmets out there
    - Even with 16 vents this helmet can be quite hot. (i.e Be ready to go through a few camelbacks if you're riding in the extreme heat)
    - Runs a bit small - (SIZE UP)

    Overall, I am a big fan of POC and their protective gear. If you going out for moderately long rides this is a great helmet for you. If you are looking for a lighter weight helmet that ventilates well in the midst of the summer heat you may want to check out some other options. To be honest, I am probably going to go with the Smith Forefront after this helmet.

    nugget saver

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    i don't crash too often, but when i do i crash hard. This helmet has saved me from a few concussions. Has a comfortable fit, good weight. and i like the look and visor. Ive busted it off a few times but it just pops back into place.

    nugget saver

    covers all bases

      bought this for a friend and she has loved it, lots of protection where needed fits small heads quite well! breathes great and doesnt dump all the sweat down on your face. only minor complaint is that the chin strap will loosen up on its own from time to time, so it does have to be adjusted every once and a while, but is it is well worth owning for the protection you receive

      Very protective!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I fell hard on a rock face at about 20mph. Broke C7 in my neck, chipped a tooth from my jaw slamming shut and sprained my wrist. ER doctors were amazed that I didn't have a concussion or any wounds to the face or head. This is a very well designed helmet offering great protection. I will probably buy another when I'm able to ride again.

      Very protective!

      Great helmet!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I MTB off-road/trails only and was looking for a helmet that better covered the back of my head. This one fit the bill and looks great. Comfortable with plenty of adjustments to ensure a snug fit. Super glad I made the investment.
      I did need to exchange an L size for XL (my head size was right on the bubble between the two sizes).

      Best Helmet I've had

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is best fitting helmet I've had. I tried a few different brands and was always fidgeting with the adjustments every time I wore it. With the Trabec I set it and forget it. It ventilates well enough for me and looks nice too. I've had mine for a few years and luckily it's never taken any hard hits but if I needed to replace it I would get another.

      Protecting the Important Stuff

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I bought this helmet as a gift for a girlfriend, she shreds on the mountain - and even though this helmet is a bit more expensive that others, but it's safety ratings seem to be much higher - and to me, it's worth protecting her brain.

      Unanswered Question

      A coworker who's does a lot of biking recommends your brand helmet. I really like the Trabec and was hoping to purchase right away. My head is 23" exactly. Why does this not come my size. Or what size do you recommend.

      When will you get this in Beryl Green?

      Unanswered Question

      anyone used this with goggles? do they integrate well and not slip in the back?

      Best Answer

      Hey Harry,



      Just a quick word of caution, we wouldn't advise you to use this bike helmet for skiing or snowboarding. (Not sure if you meant 'snow goggles' from your question). Because ski and snowboard crashes tend to happen at slower speeds than bike crashes, the helmets are engineered to comply with very different sets of standards.



      Just a heads up there!

      Anyone have any issues with glare from the underside of the visor on the white or other light-colored models? I like the white, as it seems like it would be cooler in the So Cal heat, but I'm concerned about glare...

      Best Answer

      Funny you should mention it... I have just gotten the light blue and on the trail today I noticed the visor more than I ever have noticed a visor on other helmets.

      Didn't think of it at the time but all my other helmets have had black visors.

      Maybe a little after-market paint modification is in order? ;-)

      Can anyone give me the scoop on how these helmets fit... do they run true to size, large or small? I'm at 59.6cm which says xl/xxl... seems big to me. Just curious.
