  • POC Tectal Race MIPS Helmet

    Developed using POC’s Whole Helmet Concept™, the POC Tectal Race MIPS Helmet deploys the powers of MIPS to keep your head protected on your all-mountain, trail-shredding, enduro-racing, dirt-kicking mountain bike adventures. 

    An advanced all-mountain helmet, the Tectal Race MIPS Helmet feels fantastic to wear when you're enjoying the thrills and heart-pumping exhilaration of going full speed down MTB trails. And should you push your capabilities just a bit too far, the superb range of protective features add safety should you take a tumble. 

    Take on The Trails with Confidence

    The construction method of the Tectal race is borrowed from POC's groundbreaking Octal road cycling helmet. This sees a tough unibody shell bonded to a shock-absorbing EPS liner. The shell provides durable protection against minor knocks and in the event of a more serious fall enhances structural integrity. An Aramid bridge system, first seen in POC’s proven and award-winning Trabec helmet also allow POC to further enhance structural stability and improve penetration protection.

    At the core of the helmet is the EPS foam liner. This is the layer that soaks up harder head impacts during a fall. The density and thickness vary in order to optimise protection where it's needed most.

    The design of the Tectal Race also sees greater coverage specifically tailored for mountain biking. This gives extra protection across the temples and back of the head, so you're covered if you go over the bars or off the back.

    And if that wasn’t enough, a RECCO® Reflector lets emergency services scan for you should you become lost on a backcountry mountain biking adventure.

    MIPS Integra Head Protection Solution

    The Tectal Race also features the MIPS Integra system. This brings together POC's 'whole-helmet' safety and design ethos with the fully integrated 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 seamless safety, comfort, ventilation, 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.

    Cool Comfort

    When you're riding, you'll soon be building up body heat. And with it, sweat. And so POC have ensured ventilation is optimised. In fact, they've used wind-tunnel testing to get the airflow just right, so whether going fast or slow, you'll enjoy fresh air over your head. 

    360-degree Fit System

    In order to keep the Tectal in place, you’ll find POC’s lightweight 360° fit system. This offers an easy-to-operate and precise fit, ensuring your helmet remains comfortable when riding and stays securely in place in the event of a crash.
