    Shortly after receiving the Poc Octal helmet, my husband hit a corn cob in the road and crashed at 24 miles an hour. He was thrown backwards off the bike and hit his head. The Octal protects more of the back of the head than many other helmets, which is good, because that is where the crash impact was. The other riders in his group that stopped to assist and assess whether or not to call an ambulance were amazed that he was cobscious after such a big hit to the head. We did not call an ambulance, but took him to the emergency room to have him checked. Fortunately, there was no head injury. Had he been wearing his old helmet, I believe it would not have turned out so well. Other riders in the group are now shopping for POC helmets. I ordered a replacement POC the next day (from another site as STP was out of his size).

    I decided to try the slightly unorthodox POC helmet after much review of top end helmets. What held me back was the $230 price. Sierra Trading Post had these helmets in the not-so-manly (IMHO) color of "Granate" for $99 so I picked one up. EXCELLENT CHOICE! Very comfortable with good adjustability. EXCELLENT VENTILATION compared to my other helmet - a top of the line Louis Garneau X-Lite. Light weight and the strap "Thingies" keep the straps off my ears. As I said, "excellent choice".

    My husband wanted a new helmet with good coverage and no point at the back of the head. This POC has both AND he was pleasantly surprised that it is also much much cooler than his old Specialized helmet. He is a POC convert!

    The chin strap is very comfortable -- no more straps rubbing on my ears. The size adjustment system & padding is not stand-out, but they do the job. So far, I'm very happy with the helmet.
