    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

    My head protected this helmet in a crash

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I love the look of this helmet. The colors, the styling, and it looks like a helmet that would be super safe, given the huge amount of coverage.

    Unfortunately, I found out after a crash that the helmet decided to save itself by letting my head suffer. My front wheel went sideways at the bottom of a long, steep descent and I went over the bars at quite some speed. I knocked my head hard enough that it was a good minute and a half before I knew where I was and what I was doing.

    All that's possible with any helmet, but what stood out for me is this helmet looks completely undamaged. I've crashed in plenty of other helmets (motorcycle, road, and MTB), always with no head injury, but almost always with significant damage to the helmet. The helmet should protect your head by breaking. I cracked a Catlike Whisper in six places after a bad crash but my head was no worse for wear. I went out and bought another Whisper the next day. Unfortunately this POC Trabec Race is going in the garbage and I'm not getting another. Good looks are not worth my health (or possibly my life).

    rookie review

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    give i am new to the mtb scene there probably is not too much importance to my review but i will say i love this helmet!
    it fits right, fits tight and makes me feel extra protected when i am on the track. can confirm the breathability that was mentioned by others. it does get hot and sweaty under this one, yet at the same time it feels like it wont just fall apart when you fall over therefore i don't care if i sweat.
    would buy it again!

    Finally upgraded, very happy I did!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I haven't bought a new bike helmet in a long time. This year, I decided it was finally time. I love the Trabec Helmet! Whether I am riding dirt or road, this guy gets the job done. I haven't taken a digger yet, but I expect any Poc product to hold up. More vents would make the helmet cooler, but would take away the style, so I can deal!

    Love the Trabec

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Have used this helmet for a few seasons now and have even replaced it with another Trabec after crashing hard on it. Can say it held up to a huge crash earlier this season, I was super glad I was wearing it! It doesn't breathe as well as other brands do, but I'd prefer the head being covered than breathability, so you just need to choose what features are important to you. Also I love the color options. There, I said it.

    Proven Trail Lid

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Trabec checks off all the boxes for a trail helmet. It's plenty light, adequately well ventilated, fits true to size, and looks good. My two gripes are that the retention system isn't quite as secure as the click wheel you'll find on some other helmets, and I prefer the added coverage at the base of the skull afforded by a TLD A1 or POC's new Tectal.

    Proven Trail Lid


    • 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.

    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?
