Will Strickson Tuesday, February 23, 2021 - 14:00 Designed for climbing and hot weather rides, Poc's new lightweight performance helmet will make its debut at Paris-Nice £240 Poc has launched the Ventral Lite, its 'lightest ever' cycling helmet, designed for climbing and riding in hot conditions. Since releasing its first cycling helmet in 2014, Poc has made its way to the forefront of helmet design, both technically and aesthetically – having been host to a large duck during last year's Giro d'Italia . That original helmet, the Octal, was designed to find the optimum combination of safety, performance and light weight and the Ventral Lite takes inspiration from the Octal with that same objective. Poc's head of product, Oscar Huss, said: 'We wanted to take the ideas and concepts from the Octal even further. Riders who are focussed on climbing or ride in hotter conditions are extremely conscious about weight, ...

Poc And Volvo Develop Car-Bike Helmet Crash Test

POC and Volvo have announced their world-first bike-car helmet safety testing

Bike helmet and accessories brand POC and car manufacturer Volvo have developed the world’s first car-bike specific helmet crash test at Volvo Cars’ safety research facilities in Gothenburg, Sweden. POC was founded in 2005 and entered professional cycling with Garmin Sharp in 2014. The company has provided helmets, kit and sunglasses to the team, now EF Education First , over the past six seasons of the partnership. The brand has had rider safety at the forefront of its product development in cycling, following its AVIP (attention, visibility, interaction, protection) mantra. The project and research expand on current international helmet safety testing standards, which often sees a helmet impacting a blunt anvil at various speeds and angles. The POC-Volvo testing, through Volvo’s existing testing rig, launches a crash dummy head wearing a helmet towards the hood [bonnet] of a static car at a number of speeds and angles for various measurements. ...

Poc Ventral Spin Aero Helmet Review

POC Ventral Spin aero helmet review

The POC Ventral Spin is a comfy helmet with heaps of airflow, but boy is it expensive. And the looks are, well, decidedly POC. Best aero road helmets — 8 tested and rated Best road bike helmets: 16 of our top picks While POC, almost refreshingly, doesn’t boast any wattage savings or CdA figures, the Swedish company does claim that the design aggressively directs air through the helmet instead of around it. Also, POC claims the Ventral Spin is faster than its previous aero road helmet, the Octal Aero . In lieu of MIPS, POC employs its own SPIN padding that has rotational impact protection capabilities. It would appear that SPIN pads are lighter and don’t block ventilation the way a MIPS liner can. Putting it on is best done with the dial mechanism opened up all the way. Because the Ventral’s fit system uses a loop that surrounds the ...
