Why We Like The Octal MIPS Helmet

When we're covering our craniums in anticipation of a big ride, we're looking for a few things on our dream helmet checklist: Comfort, ventilation, and fit. The Octal MIPS Helmet checks off every box. POC is a Swedish company with a mission to protect our lives and reduce the consequences of accidents for all athletes. Riding trails, gravel, or racing across tarmac, POC has our back. The Octal MIPS Helmet is distinctly airy with large vents that help offer airflow, and it's lined with EPS, which is thicker in the most exposed areas for further protection. Extended coverage is included over the temples and the back of the head. The fully-wrapped unibody shell enhances structural integrity, but also maintains a low weight. For comfortability, POC designed the Octal MIPS Helmet with ergonomic straps that are fully adjustable and ensure an appropriate fit.

Lightweight and super air flow

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I've now done about a half dozen rides in this lid. Very light feeling and was basically as easy a possible to put on and go. I've noticed that the chin strap seems to loosen on its own volition from time to time. The rest of the retention system feels very secure. I typically wear a skull cap or standard, brimmed cycling cap under my helmet. For the most part, I've not had any issues but there a couple cap / sunglass combinations wherein I've felt like everything is being smooshed. Not a big deal when I consider the ripping deal I got on this lid.

Great helmet that lasted for 1.5 years

Good helmet. The plastic ratchet-like line that the BOA knob tightens around the head snapped and the helmet is now unsafe.
