POC is showing-off its newest helmet called the Ventral Lite, marking the Swedish’s brand’s lightest road model to date.
To accomplish this, POC shaved more than 20% off of its Ventral Air Spin helmet, leaving behind a partially exposed EPS foam liner, a minimal polycarbonate shell and a slimmed down chin strap.
Padding was also reduced, eliminating the use of MIPS or SPIN protection technology in favor of lightweight material affixed to the top of the helmet via velcro tabs, yielding an impressive weight of just 180 grams in the smallest size.
“Riders who are focused on climbing or ride in hotter conditions are extremely conscious about weight, ventilation, and comfort, which is where the Ventral Lite, our lightest-ever helmet will excel,” says Oscar Huss, POC’s Head of Product. “We strongly believe that the safest helmet is one you choose to wear, one which you always look forward to wearing… The Ventral Lite will provide the protection those riders deserve without ever noticing it’s there.”
The Ventral Lite is available in five colors (solid gray, solid black, black with white, blue or green accents) in three sizes (small, medium, large), as well as EN 1078, AS/NZ 2063 and CPSC 12.03 certifications for $275.
