POC Wheels Cycle
POC is a Swedish company build on a strong mission; ‘to do everything we can to possibly save lives and reduce consequences of accidents for gravity sports athletes by developing and renewing what personal protection is all about.’ POC is represented across helmets, body armour, gloves, clothing and sunglasses. We were drawn to the brand by its clean, minimal design and bright colours; we believe it’s a breath of fresh air to the market. The product itself is just as impressive as the aesthetic. POC involves competencies from different fields, such as engineers, material specialists, industrial and graphic designers, neurologists and back specialists. They never compromise in choosing materials or construction and the end result is a line of lightweight, high performance gear that offers the ultimate protection against injury.
New for 2016, Tectal Helmet - Tectal Race is a well-ventilated helmet that has been specifically developed for aggressive trail riding and enduro racing. It incorporates the aramid bridges system from POC’s proven and award-winning Trabec helmet. A reinforced EPS liner provides a high level of protection and the unibody shell construction, introduced in POC’s ground breaking Octal road cycling helmet, further enhances the safety properties and construction integrity of the helmet while maintaining a low weight. Tectal Race offers
more coverage than conventional mountain bike helmets and has a highly efficient ventilation design, optimized and evaluated through wind tunnel testing. Featuring a goggle clip and a lightweight size adjustment system.
