    More protection for race day.

    POC makes the Trabec in a few versions, including the Race version you see above. This version gets more Aramid netting buried within the EPS foam, which means it’s even less likely to break apart upon initial impact than the regular Trabec. What else makes the Trabec different? 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.

    • Expanded Aramid net inside EPS foam layer
    • Super-tough polycarbonate shell
    • 16 vent holes
    • Adjustable visor
    • Extended protection over typical helmets
    • Adjustable fit system
    • Item #POC0105

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

    Have a stable of high end bikes and about as many helmets. In an effort to save weight, this manufacturer has compromised quality and safety. One the first ride, one of the strap attachment pulled out of the helmet clips and when I as attempted to reattach, it would just pull out. The velco tabs that restrain the pads are already coming loose and all this and all this after one use. Let me preface this review with the fact that I maintain all my bikes and gear in immaculate condition and have more bike tools than most bike shops. Surprises me Backcountry would even carry this helmet.<br ></article><br /><br /><br /><br />

    First impressions are great

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

    I have a 54.5 head and went with a M/L, this is the best fitting helmet I have ever owned (I usually fit best in Giro size M). Ventilation is really fantastic (my head actually got cold!). It is not a small helmet but it has that POC look, which I like. I will not that this helmet has comprehensive coverage around the side of the head (see photo) and will not fit all sunglasses (my Tifosis didn't work too well).

    First impressions are great

    Superior Dome Protection

    Provided that protection you need for those tight turns.

    Superior Dome Protection

    Protect yo Neck

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    What else can I say other than POC is producing some solid dome pieces. Love this helmet took a slammer into atree head first and the helmet with stood the impact, a great helmet that's worth the price. I wear a 7 5/8's in New Era hats I ordered a XL/XXL and it fits me wonderfully

    Great MTB Helmet!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I have a small head and initially got XS/S which was too small. That surprised me since I usually use small for helmets! Returned it for a M/L which fits perfectly. The adjustment system takes a sec to get used to. Overall the build quality is excellent, love the lower coverage. Well vented, nice bright orange to make sure you are visible to other traffic participants.

    I would recommend this helmet!

    Great Protection for Your Dome

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great lightweight helmet that offers more protection than a normal bike helmet. Can't beat the safety and quality of a POC product. It is super comfortable to wear with great venting. Great cinch mechanism on the back of the helmet to provide a tight fit. Great helmet with an Enduro look.

    Pretty good helmet

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Four stars. Lightweight, but it sits pretty high on your dome; not the coolest looking lid, but that's not why people buy helmets....right? Anyway, I took a hard slam in my Giro Hex a couple years back and cracked it in three places. Upon reading about different helmets I decided on the Trabec Race. So it does sit high, but it is light, the lining is antimicrobial, and after two years of hard riding does not smell even remotely bad.

    The adjustment system is a big minus... for me. The Hex had a simple roller that tightened / loosened the frame. The POC has a system that works fine, but really requires both hands - you have to pinch two small tabs on the back which allow you to tighten / loosen the frame. So the downside is that it is very difficult to adjust on the go - you can get used to pinching with one hand, but it's terribly difficult. Also, the frame prevented me from wearing my Tifosi glasses until I tweaked out the fit to where the helmet is sitting a smidge further forward than I would prefer.

    BUT I can attest to it's efficacy - I have taken one pretty good head slam and both my melon and my helmet came out unscathed. And that's what it's all about in the end. Can't give it five becausde it is over-priced and the frame adjustment feature is not where I would like it to be, but it is a damn good lid.

    Simply Awesome

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Historically I'd used 661, Fox, ProTech and other helmets for dirt jumping and more freeride style riding. But I decided to take a chance with paying extra for this POC and I don't think I'll ever go back. I use it 4-5 times a week and never get tired of it. Light, breathable, and secure.

    The only word of caution is to check the sizing I got a XL when I'm usually a L. And also the helmet is over sized so I use goggles, I think it would look a little funny with just glasses.

    POC Trabec Race Helmet

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    The Trabec Race is a wonderfully comfortable fit (on my head) that I place a premium on. Don?t know how it will fit on your head. Good padding in the right places. I like the way the strapping adjusts for a custom fit if you?re willing to take the time to tinker with it. It appears to offer better protection than any of my other helmets (Giro and Bell) as well as the fit. It does not have the sleek lines of most other helmets?sort of blocky looking.

    The downside for me is fitting a light to the top is not as easy as with other helmets due to the limited vent holes and the respective spacing, but I have made it work. Another down side is the visor. I would prefer a slightly larger, extended visor and available in black. Minor distraction for me. The upside is the perceived increase in available protection is paramount and that?s why I bought it. It?s not the least expensive helmet, but then my head doesn?t have a value placed on it.

    One comment I?ve heard is the reduced ventilation?I ride in Texas summer heat and have not found this to be a significant problem. It seems to flow much better than I anticipated and as such, I have no complaints on venting.

    Okey folks, I'm going to retire the Good'OL Giro Helios that I use for road and xc. Now, I'm Thinking about purchasing a TRABEC RACE. Should I pay the extra for the MIPS version? Is it worth the extra shillings in the end??

    MIPS is where helmet technology is headed. I'd say yes, it is definitely worth it. POC was one of the first to come out with using MIPS technology, but now there are a handful of other co's utilizing it as well, including Giro. Find your price point / style of helmet, and you'll be set.

    I am right on the edge of XS/SM and M/L (54.5 head) - any suggestions on which way to go?

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