POC pursues its mission to protect lives and reduce the consequences of accidents in style. At the core of POC’s new collection for both city and urban cyclists is its protection-first designs and material innovation to keep cyclists safe and comfortable riding through storms, seasons, and over any road or trail.
“We wanted to enhance and encourage urban cyclists with a collection that would provide year-round versatility by embracing all the weather extremes,” said Ingema Vik, Design Director, Apparel, POC. “Whether for a daily commute or riding past the city limit in search of adventure, we have optimized the collection to manage the whole range of extreme conditions by merging highly technical fabrics with functionality and design.”
POC’s Whole Helmet Concept
Developments in science and research consistently reveal the complexity of the human brain and its role in shaping us as individuals. It is incredibly delicate and fragile.
If you break a bone, in most cases, with time, it will heal. Damage to the brain and the outcomes from injury are decisively less certain. So, POC created a unique “whole helmet concept, where each feature, component, shape, and material is designed specifically to work together.”
Their proprietary whole helmet concept, with “innovative materials, integrated electronics, and rider optimized details, is designed to work long before, during, and after an impact is felt,” offering enhanced safety and protection to any user.
POC City and Commuter helmets
The Corpora provides comprehensive protection for commuting in and out of the city. A lightweight EPS liner enhances its comfort, and the directional ventilation channels force air through the helmet, keeping you cool and dry. Small holes at the top allow heat to escape without letting rain in, making the helmet functional in all weather conditions.
A durable outer shell minimizes damage from knocks and dents, keeping the helmet liner intact to protect cyclists when it matters. Reflective stripes on the front and rear make this lid more visible to drivers in low light.
The Crane Mips
Inspired by skate helmets, the award-winning Crane Mips is a versatile cycling helmet ideal for everything from cycling around town and commuting to hitting the trails, according to POC.
Perfect for daily use, the Crane features a thick outer shell to prevent dents or damage, making it worry-free for traveling and commuting. The helmet’s dual-density liner provides progressive energy management upon impact.
