The distinctive design of the Octal MIPS Road Helmet is the first thing to catch the eye. But function and form are closely linked here, with ventilation, comfort and protection intertwined perfectly to create both a high level of performance and an eye-catching design.
Safe to its Core
At the heart of the performance is the safety provided by the combination of shock-absorbing EPS foam core, made thicker in more vulnerable areas, and MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System) technology. In the event of a crash both work hand in hand to absorb and dissipate harmful impacts to the head and brain. The protection is further heightened by the extended coverage over the temples and at the back of the head. A unibody outer shell wraps the inner core, enhancing both durability and structural integrity all while minimizing weight.
MIPS Integra Technology
The MIPS Integra system brings together POC's 'whole-helmet' safety and design ethos with the brain-protecting technology of MIPS. This holistic approach sees every detail of the helmet engineered to work in harmony with each other, giving you new levels of integrated safety, comfort, ventilation, aerodynamics, fit and function.
MIPS (Multi-directional Impact Protection System)
The Mips system is designed to provide added safety for helmets in many accidents. For certain impacts, the Mips system can reduce harmful rotational motion that might otherwise be transferred to the user’s head.
Rotational motion is a common cause of concussions in oblique hits to the head. In a crash, the Mips system is designed to move slightly inside the helmet to help redirect forces away from the head.

Go With the Flow
Protection is of course paramount. But comfort is also vital, and here the Octal MIPS excels. Firstly, large forward airflow vents are engineered to draw in air, internal channels keep the flow smooth and large exhaust vents dispel warm damp air. Cooling airflow is the result.
POC also use Coolbest padding inside. This temperature-regulating pad minimizes temperature buildup at the helmet-to-head contact points. Lastly, a lightweight size adjustment system makes getting the right fit remarkably quick and easy. The right fit means greater comfort and more security should you fall.
