POC Cerebel Raceday Helmet

We'll be the first to admit that, over the course of long time trials or triathlon rides, we don't maintain an ideal TT position. This isn't just the rider's fault though, as our yaw angle also changes based on wind conditions, turns in the course, changes in gradients--in short, the dynamic conditions that we experience on every ride outside of a wind tunnel. That's why POC--in collaboration with its in-house WATTS lab and the engineers at Volvo--developed the Cerebel Raceday Helmet. The Cerebel isn't designed as a straight-on aerodynamic lid like the Tempor that debuted years ago on riders like Emilia Fahlin; rather, it's a take-all-comers approach to dodging the wind. POC and Volvo combined their wind-tunnel expertise in order to put the Cerebel through the paces at angles simulating everything from pure, tucked speed to the dynamic body positions and the much more varied yaw angles of time trials that aren't performed on pan-flat courses with a perfectly stationary rider. The result has done more than just impress the professionals at Cannondale-Garmin; it also netted a Eurobike Award for its innovative approach to all-purpose aerodynamics. Of course, for all the focus on going faster, POC is primarily in the business of making helmets that keep you safe during a head-to-anything collision. Toward this end, the Cerebel features an EPS liner with varying densities in order to absorb and dissipate impact forces. The Zeiss visor helps to avoid any impact at all with a tint that highlights any changes or irregularities in the road surface by increasing contrast. The visor itself relies on magnetic attachment points for its own security.

If you've ever felt that helmet designers placed too much attention on creating models that were too light and too aero for your tastes, then consider the POC Trabec Helmet. It's designed for mountain bikers or anyone who wants greater coverage over the ears and around the back of the head. The goal was to increase safety without sacrificing comfort and performance. The Trabec fits more like a skateboard helmet. The fit can be custom tailored, and since it offers more coverage, the potential for movement when your head strikes the ground is less than smaller helmets with less coverage. Thinking about the way we wreck on trails, there is a greater chance for a variety of trajectory -- forwards, sideways, even backwards. When you get crazy, crazy things happen. POC builds the Trabec Helmet as a single layer system. It has a polycarbonate shell that acts as the first defense against impact energy. Inside the foam core is an aramid net. Its purpose is to hold the foam together and resist chunking under massive, high speed impacts (like rebar in concrete). It's designed as a multi-impact system, so the helmet can survive more than just a few connections with the terra firma. POC punches sixteen large vent holes in the shell, so you'll get plenty of airflow on hot days. An adjustable visor also helps on those sunny days to protect your eyes from glare and bright skies. A size adjustment system at the back allows you to snug it down for a perfect and wiggle free fit. The POC Trabec Helmet is Black/grey and is available in three sizes -- X-Small/Small, Medium/Large, and X-Large/XX-Large. The pads inside are treated with Polygiene. It prevents bacterial growth, is eco-friendly, and is perfectly safe next to your skin. Since the bacteria can't gro...
