Sporting a completely different look from other helmet lines like the DJ helmets, POC is serious in making a statement with their new POC Trabec helmets. The helmet is specifically designed for all mountain riders, perfect for the great outdoors.

POC’s helmet offers more than just protection for both the side and the back of the head. It has boasted of fitting on your head more like a skater’s helmet rather than that of a cyclist but with the ventilation that comes along with a trail helmet with 16 large vent holes to keep you cool no matter the pressure.

The Trabec trail helmet by POC is fabricated using an Aramid filament reinforced EPS (Expanded PolyStyrene foam) core blended perfectly with a polycarbonate shell that helps keep away any tears from the seams in vulnerable areas.

Currently there are two available models for the POC Trabec: The POC Trabec…

POC recently designed a lightweight body protector for your spine and back that promises to be durable and strong when you get into a tumble or fall. The POC Spine VPD Vest Back Protector is made from a new compound that is specifically designed to absorb shock better than any material used in body armours. This compound is called visco-elastic polymer dough. It works to absorb shock and adapts itself to the force of the impact. This, in turn, will lessen damage inflicted to the rider.

Some riders abhor wearing body armours because they are bulky and not all the time, can truly offer good protection when they take a spill on the road or get into an accident. POC created this body vest to be light yet strong enough to withstand force. The density of the compound will not hinder movement but can still provide needed protection…
