In order to tackle the trails with confidence, having the right head protection is essential. The POC Tectal Bike Helmet has been specifically designed for trail riding and enduro racing, with a durability and coverage intended to be a strong defense against the types of crashes that can happen when you are testing your skills. That’s because the Tectal uses the the aramid bridges system from POC’s super sturdy Trabec helmet. Nevertheless, it is very well ventilated so you won’t suffer from overheating, and it maintains a surprisingly low weight considering just how protective it is. That’s in large part thanks to the unibody shell construction that POC has borrowed from the Octal road helmet. By wrapping around the back of the head, the Tectal offers enhanced coverage for mountain biking, while the efficient and adjustable retention system ensures it will always be properly situated on your noggin.
