POC Helmets – Any good?
In the market for a new lid. I like the look of the receptor and the trabec… Anyone had any experience of the brand/models?
I recall a thread on here ages ago about a helmet brand (can’t remember if it was POC or not) where it seemed there was questionable quality control, so want to make sure my head is safe!! Had enough ops! 😀
Not too bothered by weight (I’m a motorbiker too, so any bike helment will be light). Currently using a Giro Xen, which I quite like…
Basically looking for opinions/experience of fit/quality etc.Posted 4 years agosteel4realMember
Had a POC Trabec for a year now – like it a lot and it is the best fitting helmet I’ve owned.
Tried on a Feature as previously and still occasionally used a Gyro Xen but the fit isn’t as good as the POC.
I would say that the Trabec isn’t quite as well ventilated though.Posted 4 years agop8ddyMember
Good info – Thank you!
Oddly, I thought the POC helmets looked a bit less ‘massive mushroom head’ than the likes of the Giro Xen and other XC helmets – but that’s only going from pictures!
I like the extra coverage they offer (or at least that they look like they offer).
Guess I’m gonna have to go and try on, see just how massive my head looks in one! 😀Posted 4 years agoguitarheroSubscriber
I’ve been using the Trabec Mips version for the last couple of weeks, and would recommend one based on my experience so far. It’s a good fitting, comfortable helmet. Bought one because I reckoned it was the safest helmet in its class. IMO it is a pretty good looking helmet, and certainly less ‘special’ looking than the Urge Enduromatic it replaced. I paid £130 ish, not the £190 + some places are asking, and at that price I feel it was a good buy.Posted 4 years ago
