This safety focussed Swedish mash-up, the POC Octal AVIP MIPS, marries up POC's trademark contrast colouring with MIPS’s intuitive safety system (also, all those capital letters mean this tech filled helmet means business!) The main features of the Octal remain: POC’s innovative ventilation system; additional coverage at the rear of the helmet; temperature regulating padding; and, an EPS liner.

However, working in conjunction with the EPS liner is a custom MIPS system. MIPS is designed to deal with angled impacts to the head - one of the most common outcomes of an accident. By mimicking the brain’s natural reactions, MIPS works in partnership with EPS to protect from radial and rotational impacts. Additionally, even before the MIPS liner has to answer the call to action, POC's, in-house designed, signature colour combinations maximise visibility and contrast against a variety of backgrounds.

So this is one of the safest helmets out there, we've got it, but it’s also one of the top performing? Featherlight and well vented, the Octal MIPS features in the pro peloton thanks to its aerodynamic superiority in comparison to other heavily vented helmets - the numbers do the talking at that level. This vital combination makes the AVIP MIPS a helmet suited to all season training, racing and weekend epics that go deep into the night.

    Lovely helmet and a great fit straight away. I had the white Octal before this, but it got damaged in a crash so had to replace it. Went for this upgraded version with MIPS. Same great fit and weight, just a little safer. Looks like a nice bright orange without being too obnoxious. Only gripe is that its expensive, and also the white polystyrene foam is totally exposed and uncovered and it seems to attract dirt easily.

    Great overall though.
