The Octal and Trabec have a baby!
Long Swedish nights. Two uniquely attractive helmets. It was inevitable, really. Yes they’re related- but let’s not take the analogy too far.
Borrowing what looks to be the front half and unibody shell construction from their airy, road-oriented Octal helmet and the rear and aramid (Kevlar) reinforcement from the now-ubiquitous Trabec Race trail helmet, POC’s new Tectal Race looks set to deliver on both protection and ventilation fronts.
Current information is limited and pricing unavailable, but we’ve heard that there’s something extra-special inside- and have sent our team on the ground at Eurobike to find out more. Standby for updates when they return.
