    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

    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.

    • 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.

    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.

      Protecting the Important Stuff

      POC ROC

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The Trabec is a pretty comfortable helmet, with enough padding in the proper places, and a good form fitting inner shape, that has adequate room to accommodate varying head geometries. The helmet is pretty light. the ventilation is good, not as good as a cross country helmet but has good air flow. I bought the black size medium. i usually wear a size 7 1/4 in new era hats and the medium fits perfect. Has kind of a blocky look but i dig the helmet for sure.

      It Works!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Took a hard fall yesterday and bounced the back of my head off of the rocks like a superball. Glad I had the protection on the back side. I really like POC products. This helmet fits very well and stays snug, but not too tight. I've had two other big head-strike falls in the last few years, and my other two helmets, while they did the job, were destroyed. The POC was dented but it was at least in one piece so I could ride back to the trailhead without too much concern about the integrity of my lid. Will be getting a replacement though. Highly recommend!

      It Works!

      Saved My Room Mate!

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

      Doctor says it would have been much worse. Check out the crack through the helmet. Though it did crack still saved her noggin. Couldnt save the clavicle but, that is fixable.

      Saved My Room Mate!

      Disappointed

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

      I was astounded by the cheap construction, especially considering the cost. The plastic covering looked like it had been cut by dull scissors and hastily glued to the shell. While the size chart indicated my head size fell well within the range of the size I ordered, the helmet was too tight, even on the largest setting.



      A much better helmet can be purchased for $100 less.

      Love this helmet!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Very easy to adjust and it fit perfectly on my head. I have had issues over the years with finding a helmet that is comfortable and I took a risk buying this one online but it has plenty of areas to adjust and feels great. Very light weight and lots of ventilation not to mention that I think it looks great! I bought it in white and love the color!



      Highly recommend!

      Above average, but not perfect

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I picked this helmet up as my first mountain biking helmet, and have ridden with it several times.



      What I like:

      *white color option helps a bit with the heat

      *size XL fits my enormous head well

      *the big vents let in a good amount of breeze when I'm downhilling

      *it seems to have good overall coverage



      What I don't like:

      *the side straps tend to shift position easily if you take the helmet off hang hang it by them

      *the only thing securing the chin strap tightener is a rubber band

      *the brow pads don't do a very good job of keeping sweat out of my eyes (it's been a hot summer!)

      Awesome Helmet!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I purchased this helmet after realizing my previous one was long expired and probably would not survive a minor bike wreck. I looked at POC helmets because I have a ski helmet of theirs that I LOVE! I appreciate the care they take in the adjustability of their products. The chin straps are easily modified and I love being able to secure the back of the helmet to my head so I really feel as if the helmet is part of me. I rarely remove my helmet while biking and I find this helmet is so well ventilated that if I do take it off after a climb I barely notice a temperature change. It is lightweight. I feel completely protected by the design and even though appearances shouldn't matter, I don't look ridiculous in this helmet (at least myself, my dog and my man friend don't think so). I went with the same size I ordered for my ski helmet and it fits perfectly. A couple notes, the visor does not come off which is not an issue for me but may be for some people. Also, since I don't remove my helmet while climbing I cannot speak to the ease of carrying it on a pack. The rear head adjustment is wonderful but I would be interested in a boa system if available. I didn't research that component and it may not make a difference. I happen to love the boa system in my ski helmet it might be something to look for in future helmet purchases. Overall, love this helmet and highly recommend it! POC products are expensive but for a reason. I am insanely happy with all of their products I use!

      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.
