This will very much be an ongoing review
After nearly two years with the Catlike Kompact, which i really really like, i decided it was time for a change. Almost pulled the trigger on a Kask Vertigo, but figured for a little more i would gamble on the POC
$323 shipped from Evanscycles while they were having their 20% sale, handy.
The unboxing, as you can see in the pics, comes with the helmet, spare padding, helmet bag, a cap and an emergency barcode sticker thingy which is supposed to hold your ICE details.
Quality looks pretty good, first thing you notice is the stackhat feel of the thing.
Adjustment looks pretty simple when you compare it to Kasks, and it definitely dosnt have that premium feel of leather cushion chin strap, it has no cushion at all, ie the Kompacts
Initial wear feels good, definitely feels deeper then the kask/kompacts.
All the talk about glasses fouling the helmet was unfounded for me, I tried the lid on with my radar XLs and no issue with arms fouling. This might be because of head shape more then the depth of the helmet I suspect.
Weighs in at 200 grams on the dot according to china scales, in comparison my catlike kompact came in at 260 on the dot
