On helmets, other things equal, lighter = safer because bulk on the head increases concussion risk as well as neck fatigue.
The vent design looks good, as well. Big vents in the back is key to reduced drag and cooling at speed.
Fashion? Who cares...

Rear view. POC have said they're sponsoring a team next year, so maybe it's Garmin? Can't imagine they would use the Tempor though, what with Garmin being one of the first teams to realise riders tend to drop their head in TTs...
I agree that the white one looks great, I'd just have to see how much of a balloon/mushroom it would look on my head... that and the fact that due to the location the logo looks to read 'poo'.
I also think they're missing a trick by not making the aero version a magnetic snap on cover. I understand the UCI rules, but producing a cover as well would benefit the rest of us.

And I concur with pharmstrong: the ultimate test would be trying it on to see if it fits and appears well.
In some views it looks very similar in profile to the Specialized helmets.
edit- i love the extra coverage though and something I've always felt that bike helmets lacked. POC has done some fantastic work in the field of concussion minimization. You can read a long article about it here...

Good point. Many people's brains are not worth 50 grams, especially those who would not be willing to incur the 50 grams to protect them.ultyguy wrote:Your probably right, this won't have it, it adds 50g to the ski helmets they put it in.
