POC Octal Aero Raceday Helmet
The POC Octal Aero Raceday Helmet is as streamlined as you’ll find without buying a full-on time-trial helmet. It benefits from POC's computer simulations and extensive wind tunnel testing, together with the aerodynamic specialists in their WATTS Lab. So whether you're racing the clock or aiming to leave your mates behind, you're equipped to beat both.
Being slippery through the air is key when you're racing, and the Octal Aero is part of POC's "Raceday" range of kit, which was developed to optimise and enhance performance when racing. "Raceday" kit gives competitive cyclists a significant edge over their rivals. Technologies developed in the "WATTS" lab which are normally reserved for pro's only, are now available to you.
The unique unibody shell construction fully wraps around the head and functions as a monocoque to enhance the safety properties and integrity of the helmet. The result of this type of construction is a helmet that offers excellent protection at an incredibly low weight.
With the POC Octal Aero you'll still get the very best head protection available due to the extra coverage and additional protection of the temples and back of the head. Safety is further maximised, as the EPS liner is strategically thicker in the most exposed areas and also covered by the outer PC shell.
To obtain maximum aerodynamics and low drag, ventilation ports are reduced. However, in order to counteract overheating, POC has used their "Coolbest" sweat wicking material to encourage airflow and reduce the temperature between your head and the helmet.
