In comparison to traditional helmets, the POC Trabec Race MIPS Helmet offers more coverage at your temples and the back of your head. It is designed to be around the head not just on top of it. This enhanced coverage lessens the potential for movement and injury if your head strikes the ground. In-mold construction and a polycarbonate shell keep this helmet light for its amount of protection. An EPS liner below the shell adds a second layer of protection, helping absorb the force of impact. The EPS liner is reinforced with Aramid fibers, holding the helmet’s foam together for greater impact absorption.
To keep your head cool, the helmet has 16 vents for air travel. It also has a front visor for sun, rain, and mud protection and a size adjustment mechanism at the back of the helmet to fine-tune your fit. With MIPS technology, this helmet protects your brain by neutralizing rotational forces on the head during impact. It adds a low-friction layer between the shell and liner which, upon angled impact, allows the helmet to slide relative to the head avoiding concussion and other brain injuries.
