Forming part of Poc’s AVIP range, the Octal optimises all four elements, Attention, Visibility, Interaction and Protection (AVIP).

The monocoque polystyrene shell enables the weight to fall just below a claimed 200g, and while the larger than traditional helmet ventilation slots take a little getting used to, they promise to keep heads cool while keeping the helmet structural integrity intact.

With visibility high on Poc’s agenda, the colour palette and reflective detailing does narrow rider options to a choice of three, but with natty details such as an eyewear pocket for your glasses and an ICE tag you can scan, this hard-to-miss helmet really does look after you for £225.
