POC to show two new mountain bike helmets at Eurobike

Published August 25, 2015

FRIEDRICHSHAFEN, Germany (BRAIN) — POC plans to show two new mountain bike helmets at this week's Eurobike show: The Tectal and the Coron. 

The Tectal was developed for aggressive trail riding and enduro racing and incorporates the aramid bridges system from POC's popular Trabec helmet. The reinforced EPS liner provides a high level of protection and the company said the unibody shell construction further enhances the safety properties and construction integrity of the helmet while maintaining a low weight. Tectal offers more coverage than some mountain bike helmets and has a ventilation design that POC optimized and evaluated through wind tunnel testing. The Tectal also features a removable action camera mount and goggle strap.

The Coron, a full-face helmet, was developed in collaboration with POC team athlete Martin Söderström. It uses a new type of shell material, M-FORGE, which is an advanced fiber material that POC said outperforms other shell materials with added benefits in terms of multi-impact performance, durability and low weight. Until now, M-FORGE had only been used in high-end motorsports helmets, the company said.

The M-FORGE shell is paired with a multi-impact EPP liner. The ventilation system includes internal channels that ensures effective ventilation throughout the entire helmet. The Coron also includes a patent-pending breakaway visor. Available in Martin Söderström and Intense Factory Racing Team pro models.

POC did not release pricing information on the new helmets.

The Coron in Hydrogen White.
