In for Review / POC Helmets and Gear

by Robb Sutton

If there is one company in the mountain biking industry that really takes it to an “Apple sytle” level…it’s POC. Founded in Sweden, everything from the engineering of their products to design and even the unboxing experience is all thought about very carefully.

This week we received some of the POC gear in for review here at Bike198. Be on the lookout for review videos on each as we have some tests planned over the coming weeks. Here is a first look at what we will be testing along with the specs of each.
