I loved the look of the Octal Aero (oddly enough, as it looked a great 'urban'/Bern style helmet) though I can't stand big logos! (though if I did, the 80s look of the Poc logo and design isn't actually that bad)

The big logos would be trivially removed: they're big stickers. But they're reflective, so I'm compelled to leave them on, despite the added mass.

Really? I thought they looked sealed in or below a clearcoat (as opposed to Kasks's which come off in your hands)?

Mine has a sticker which can be simply removed (CE version)

Bring it up again, djconnel is right as always : )

“Until the standards catch up, we are between a rock and a hard place on impact, lower impact, and multi-impact testing,” Chilson said. “It’s kind of a bummer that marketing improved helmet technology is at a hold, due to liability, because the standard hasn’t caught up.”

What's the weight without the sticker?

@djconnel - congrats on the new helmet. Which store did you go through to get it? How does it play with other sunglasses? I own Oakley Jawbones, and I have found some retention systems interfere with the stems.


Curious on this one too - I'm about to order one but would like to make sure they're ok with my jawbones / racing jackets. Any experience?

Zero complaints with fitment on my Jawbones with the Octal...

If you need a size S I have one in the classifieds, new... ;)

deleted the quote.

Why selling? Fit?

I absolutely love mine, although I want to make a plastic wind cover for it. The emergency health record sticker that comes with it is a brilliant added touch.

Bought it for the wife, but as she is 8mos along pregnant, she won't need it for quite a while. So rather just get her something again when she needs it. I love my size L on the orange. Just need matching shoes now...

Just seen the 2015 POC catalogue and some really nice colours coming next year for the Octal. No fluo yellow though.

i'm in san jose area and last time when i was travelling, started chatting with another fellow cyclist on the plane. i've been having helmet issue with fitment, etc.. fits well at first.. but once i start to sweat and into the ride.. my specialized echelon starts to get lopsided.

as it turns out i have a very odd shaped head.. very much so like "Ultraman". :(

so he suggested me to check out POC octal, as he has a pointy head himself.

i tried emailing POC and even try to call up some shops, but doesn't seem like they carry them in northen california, not to mention, i never got a response back from POC either. :(

anyone know of any shop in norcal that carries it in different sizes for me to try out?

thanks
