Sierra Rwrote a review of POC Trabec Helmet on June 29, 2014
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!
