This POC Octal Raceday Road Helmet is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
The award winning POC Octal Raceday helmet is engineered to be the next step in road bike helmet safety and race performance. It offers optimal ventilation and comfort while remaining incredibly lightweight - designed to perfectly match Raceday clothing.
The POC Octal has been designed to offer Pro level performance and advanced head protection. POC has acheived this through extra coverage and additional protection of the temples and back of the head. The EPS liner is also strategically thicker in the most exposed areas and is covered by the outer PC shell further improving it's safety performance.
The unique and fully wrapping unibody shell construction functions as a monocoque and enhances the safety properties and construction integrity of the helmet. The result is a helmet that offers excellent protection but at the same time maintains its incredibly low weight.
When it comes to ventilation POC have taken an innovative approach and instead of using many small vents, Octal has fewer, but larger, ventilation slots. This distinctive design provides a larger open surface area at the front, and in combination with the specifically designed interior, allows more air to flow through the helmet. It's also designed to compliment the Raceday clothing line to offer the ultimate in drag reduction kit.
Fit and Feel
In order to dial in your fit perfectly POC use an ultralight size adjustment system that ensures a comfortable feel and secure fit. To maintain a comfortable temperature the use of internal Coolbest padding helps reduce the temperature in the interface between the helmet and your head, perfect for hot weather riding.
Following the AVIP concept, which promotes safety for road cyclists, POC now introduces Raceday. Raceday is built on the experiences of the AVIP range and has been further developed to optimise and enhance performance when racing, to give competitive cyclists the most optimal equipment in their quest to win.
Raceday is built on the competence of POC’s product development team and developed in close collaboration with Garmin-Sharp Pro Cycling Team, Volvo Car Group and the aerodynamic specialists in WATTS Lab. WATTS Lab is POC’s highly specialised department, whose objective is to optimise performance and aerodynamics of POC products.
Through computer simulations and extensive wind tunnel testing together with the aerodynamic specialists in WATTS Lab, POC have studied the specific challenges in road cycling performance and importantly not only what to focus on, but also where to focus in order to improve aerodynamic efficiency. Raceday is the result of POC’s uncompromising approach to road cycling performance and marks the next step in their quest to redefine the future of road cycling.
POC is a Swedish company, built on a strong mission; to do everything we can to possibly save lives and to reduce consequences of accidents, for gravity sports athletes, by developing and renewing what personal protection is all about. POC has in many ways already set a new standard when it comes to technical solutions, construction, material combinations and engineering, with patented solutions, to increase the degree of protection. POC works in a cross scientific way, from the office at Nacka gatan 4, in Stockholm. The organization involves competences from different fields, such as engineers, material specialists, industrial and graphic designers, neurologists and back specialists. Stockholm is an important center for some of Europe’s leading research and development experts in the areas of safety, medicine, health care, advanced product development and testing. It´s our mission to do everything we can to develop protective gear that can save lives and reduce the severity of injuries. All our products have been tested by top world gravity sport athletes and then further refined to perfection. Our athlete friends love to go flat out but without suffering cuts, bruises and headaches, or in the worst cases, risking back or brain damage as a result of crashes that sadly happens to even the best athletes. The end result is a line of lightweight, high performance gear that offers the ultimate protection against injury thanks to superior impact absorption and penetration resistance. When developing a product at POC, we do it in the spirit of doing the best. We never compromise in choosing materials or construction, and we never compromise safety, quality or performance.
