Dirt jumps, freeride, and more.
When you need a helmet that’ll protect you, even after a few up-close meetings with Mother Earth, look to the POC Crane Helmet. This Swedish-designed, skate-style lid has a polycarbonate shell with progressively denser EPS foam lining it, which makes each impact’s impact on your brain more tolerable.
There are eight vent holes up top, so you won’t cook your brains out, either, when you’re hiking back up the same section in the summer heat. Out back, there’s a sizing-adjustment system to make sure the helmet fits as it should, not like some floppy skate helmets do.

Check fit chart. Otherwise great.

I ordered the same size as my previous POC helmet which was XL/XXL but it was way too big. M/L here is perfect. Such a nice lid, shell takes a good beating but the vents are great on hot days. The adjustability of the Crane is worth it over the Crane Pure too. Glove like fit. I bought one in white for my girlfriend too to use around town too. Highly recommended.

I bought this to replace the POC Receptor Flow Bug helmet that I have thoroughly worn. The ventilation on the Crane is great. The Receptor is a dual purpose snow and bike lid so it was very warm and I am loving the wide open vents of the Crane. They have also slimmed out the helmet so it fits a little larger than the Bug but with the internal size adjuster this isnt a problem.
I have no doubt this will serve me equally as well as the Receptor Bug. That can now be relegated to a dedicated snow helmet.
Great buy and fit.

Stylish as well. I researched bicycle helmets. Not being a fan of the traditional shape of helmets, and being 47.. I wanted to find something that would give me good coverage and be safe. This helmet exceeds expectations. The price is cheaper on Competetive Cyclist than other sites. I also bought the POC Receptor Flow for my wife.WE are both pleased and look cool as hell! I'm buying POC protective gear next for my spine. I've had a 12 level spinal fusion. (Butt to neck) Safety Rocks!
I measured my head and I'm sitting at 58cm. What sze would you recommend?
