    Tectal Race Spin Helmet

    Enduro season is upon you, the dirt is perfectly tacky, and the temperatures have yet to rise to oppressive levels and you're ready to hit the trail with no holds barred — just make sure to cover your dome first. Making a stylish case for safety, POC's Tectal Race is updated with new Spin technology to boost it into the future, helping dissipate rotational forces from certain styles of crashes, while still backing you up with the impact-absorbing EPS foam and PC shell you've come to know and trust.

    POC's new Spin technology works by featuring a robust inner layer on the helmet that sits in between the EPS and your noggin, and allows the helmet to move in any direction in the case of an oblique fall, allowing force to dissipate and be absorbed into the helmet.

    Borrowing design inspiration from its Octal and Trabec helmets, POC uses a clean style and unibody construction for the Tectal Race, extending coverage over the back of the head and temples to keep vulnerable areas protected in the event of a crash. Keeping comfort in mind, POC also carves 15 vents and a lengthy system of air channels throughout the Tectal Race so you won't overheat under your lid when you start working hard on a climb. If you need to make a quick fit adjustment on-trail, just spin the dial at the back of the helmet to get the fit you need, and before you head out, tuck your goggles into the goggle strap at the back and adjust the visor to shield your eyes from sun, rain, or the dirt your ride buddy is bound to spray up in front of you.

    • A full-coverage helmet for getting rowdy on the trail

    POC helmets rule!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Gave this to my husband after he crashed and destroyed his Traebec Race helmet. He likes the look and fit of the Tectal better except seems to have a little issue with his sunglasses fitting just right. The Tectal fits down over his head better than the Traebec did and that must be the issue. Would totally do another one for myself.

    Great Protection with Style

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This helmet offers great protection in all the right places while maintaining breathability and style. The back of the helmet drops low enough that I feel comfortable pushing the limits on aggressive trails, and the vent design works well enough to allow for long xc epics on warm summer days. The colors are limited on the spin variety of the tectal, but the spin tech seems legit and is certainly worth a few extra $$ if it means a chance at more protection for your noggin!

    Most Comfortable Helmet

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    I love the Tectal. The shape of helmet fit my head (not too round not too oval) perfectly, and the SPIN pads, as well as adding the extra protection from rotation forces, are very comfortable on the head. The Tectal has awesome ventilation, and great coverage of the back of the head and temples. Also, I think it's one of the best looking helmets on the market.

    Great Protection with Style

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This helmet checks all the boxes when it comes to keeping your noggin safe and looks great. I transitioned from the trabec race helmet to tectal, and I think the fit is a bit better for my head with the tectal, especially with its lower back piece (which seems to offer some extra protection to the back of the head and upper neck). Solid helmet all around.

    Super comfortable

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This thing is super comfortable and covers a bit more of your head than many other options. Even with the extra material it remains lightweight and has excellent ventilation, all though I haven't actually gotten to try it in hot weather yet. The spin technology is comparable to MIPS which adds a nice level of bonus protection. The price is still pretty steep, though and I'm not 100% convinced that it's worth the price tag.

    Slight conflict with sunglasses

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    There is a small downturn in the helmet that conflicts slightly with the temples of sunglasses (I wear Oakley Jawbreakers). I end up having to lift up my glasses and the helmet while descending occasionally (2-3 times during a 2 hour ride). Not horrible but something to be aware of. Otherwise really like the helmet and its already saved me a few times

    Excellent protection and very comfortabl

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a very comfortable and very full featured helmet. I had worn a POC Trabec in the past and this element replaced the Specialized Ambush which I’ve worn for the last three seasons. After the ambush cracked I was looking for something that had slip playing technology but knowing that MIPS makes helmets hot (my road helmet has MIPS) I was looking for something different. This helmet is low profile, light, and airy. While not as light as the ambush it is significantly more comfortable on the head, and seems to provide an equal or greater amount of ventilation. It’s cents more low profile than the Trabec but has equal amounts of coverage. I believe this is my favorite helmet I’ve owned since the original Giro Xen started the category years ago.

    Excellent low profile helmet.

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

    This lid fits super low on your head, feeling more like a bucket helmet. The low volume design doesn't leave you looking like a mushroom
