    “Maximum protection with comfort and style?! SOLD”

    The Good: Easily adjustable. Maximum protection without feeling bulky. Extremely durable and stays looking clean even after some Gnar and carnage!

    The Bad: uh is there a multi colored one yet?

    Overall Review:

    POC started showing up last season on my friends heads and I loved how they looked! I knew I wanted something different then whats been on the market year after year, not only did they all start to look the same, but after having a good crash in my previous helmet and experiencing the lack of protection it had for me I was in search of a new piece of open face head gear.

    I had picked up a Trabec and after just one ride I was sold. I have a few different colors in this specific style because, I have found no other open face helmet that has great coverage and still feels light. You name it and I will be wearing my Trabec...@ Dirt Jumps, BMX park, Single track. Even at some XC events I will race in it because I trust the protection and comfort it offers. Stays cool in the heat and warm in the cold. I am also able to stick my ear warmers or beanie under without sacrificing comfort.This is a great design constructed very well!

    I have heard people hesitate because of the price, but with this you really get more then you pay for. I had a face off with a tree in my first Trabec and you would never know by looking at the helmet, this lid really holds up and it really protects. Worth every penny, nickel & dime! one of my favorite pieces of ridinggear!YEAH POC!!  And come on people!! It is pretty slick looking!

    “Best Helmet Ive Ever Owned”

    The Good: Fits Real Well, lightweight, simple coloring

    The Bad: Collects sweat real bad, but i think that every helmet is going to have that

    Overall Review:

    Plain and simple, this helmet is sick. Fits real well, completely around your head. The visor doesnt pop every two off like other trail helmets, and to top everything off, the helmet is pretty light as well. I would definitely recommend this helmet for anyone rides more than a couple of times a week

    “Amazing and awesome”

    The Good: Lightweight, looks bitchin', well ventilated

    The Bad: Cost is pretty high

    Overall Review:

    I picked up the dark blue color and upon arrival immediately noticed that his helmet was a crap load lighter than my skate style helmet I was using. I got the M-L size and it fit quite well. The maximum coverage of the Trabec inspires confidence that if you do go down, you're protected and safe. I got my helmet in February, with snow on the ground and cold temps. Due to the extremely well venting aspect of the helmet, I froze my head when I used this helmet. Now that it is May and quite warm up here in Vermont, the ventilation is a godsend and perfect. The straps areout of the way and the size adjustment system is easy to work with to get a good fit. This is a great looking helmet as well as a great riding helmet

    Miscellaneous The Trabec in-mold helmet combines functionality and performance for singletrack and enduro riders who are in need of a high degree of protection. The construction is similar to how a skeleton is built for both resistance and durability. The inner Aramid filament reinforced EPS core is tough and resilient while the outer PC shell is constructed with seams located in the areas of least exposure. An aerodynamic channel system and 16 bent slots provides great ventilation while the fit is designed to be around the head versus on top, which promises superior protection.
