Though lightweight should not be your first consideration when shopping for a helmet, once the design has things like protection, visibility and ventilation addressed, then getting it nice and light is just a bonus. The POC Ventral Air SPIN Bike Helmet covers all these requirements with assurance thanks to the way POC considers each aspect of a helmet’s jobs. Their whole-helmet approach means that the fully wrapped unibody shell construction and EPS liner provide a huge amount of crash protection while avoiding added weight. The use of the SPIN technology that employs silicon interior pads as a shearing method to dissipate the rotational force in case of a bike crash adds to the ultra-level of protection. Things like the lightweight size adjustment system makes it super easy to address how it fits without adding unwanted heft. And to enhance ventilation, cutouts in the helmet provide for airflow zones that flush out the hot air away from your head without compromising the aerodynamics of the shape. And perhaps the feature that you will appreciate every day the most is how securely your sunglasses can fit into the eyewear garage at the front of the helmet.
