An award-winning helmet from the specialists at POC. The Octal MIPS combines premium protection with ample ventilation and now the inclusion of MIPS technology. This lightweight lid is designed for road cyclists who demand more when in the saddle and also want to look the part!
The award-wining Octal helmet remains an evolution in protection for road cyclists. With distinctive design, the extremely lightweight helmet provides optimal ventilation and comfort, while protection is heightened with extended coverage over the temples and at the back of the head. The EPS liner is strategically thicker in the most exposed areas to enhance protection, and the fully wrapped unibody shell enhances structural integrity while maintaining a low weight.
MIPS: Multi-Directional Impact Protection System
The MIPS Brain Protection System is a helmet integrated, low friction layer designed to reduce rotational motion transferred to the brain from angled impacts to the head.
Injury statistics show that when you fall and hit your head, it’s most common to fall at an angle, compared to a linear fall. Falling at an angle creates rotational motion and science has shown that our brains are very sensitive to rotational forces. MIPS allows the head to move inside the helmet which can reduce the harmful rotational motion otherwise transferred to the brain.
Fit & Comfort Technology
POC Unique Ventilation
20 large, passive ventilation channels across the lid offer maximum airflow and provides an aerodynamic edge.
Optimised EPS Liner
Optimised EPS liner enhances the helmet's structural integrity and remains lightweight.
Unibody Shell Construction
Fully wrapped around the temples and back of the head keep the helmet secure during accidents and protect the most important parts of your head.
360 Fit System
Featuring POC's high quality dial adjustment system which secures the helmet to the shape of your head and can be adjusted easily with gloves on.
