POC unveiled it latest Ventral Air helmet during this week’s Tour Down Under, which was donned by members of the EF Education First team.
“With every helmet we design, POC’s objective is to always use science, mixed with our commitment to innovation and Swedish heritage, to maximize a rider’s safety and performance,” said Jonas Sjögren, POC’s CEO. “Ventral Air is the latest result of our approach; it’s incredibly safe, lightweight and ventilated. It’s perfect for long climbs on hot days.”
Drawing heavily from POC’s Octal and Ventral helmets, Ventral Air features revised ventilation ports and internal channeling that the company claims enhances ventilation at speeds both high and low.
The new Ventral Air tips the scales at a feathery 230 grams, which features a fully wrapped uni-body shell construction and an EPS liner optimized for balance between weight and safety. The helmet also features POC’s patent pending silicone pad system, SPIN (Shearing Pad INside).
Not surprisingly, the Ventral Air was developed with input and testing from the riders of EF Education First team.
“Success in professional racing is built on performance and the Ventral Air, which is built on the evidence of POC’s tried and tested Octal and Ventral, is another performance leap forward for our team’s riders,” said Jonathan Vaughters, EF Education First CEO. “The hot days and mountain stages of next week’s Tour Down Under will be the ideal proving ground for Ventral Air.”
Additionally, the new lid features a built-in dock for stowing one’s sunglasses.
The Ventral Air sells for $250, which will be available in three sizes, Small (50-56cm), Medium (54-59), and Large (56-61), along with a range of different colors starting in March.
