The award-winning Octal represents the next step in safety in the racing bike market - high comfort, excellent ventilation and extremely low weight characterise the helmet. To further improve safety, the Octal offers additional protection for the temples and back of the head. Thanks to the optimized EPS plastic core, which is thicker at these strategically important points, the Octal weighs only 195 grams (size M). This was achieved by the overlapping unibody construction which, like a monocoque, additionally reinforces the entire structure of the helmet, making it safer.
When developing the ventilation system, POC chose an innovative approach: Instead of many small ventilation holes, the size of the openings (20 pieces) and thus the volume of the ventilation was optimized. This design allows a generous ventilation in the front area, which in combination with the inner construction allows a particularly large air flow through the entire helmet and thus also increases the aerodynamic performance.
The Octal has an extremely lightweight size adjustment system, which guarantees a perfect and secure fit. The inner lining is equipped with Coolbest technical temperature-regulating padding. The POC Eye Garage, consisting of two silicone pads in the front ventilation openings, prevents the sunglasses from slipping out when they are attached to the helmet.
