POC Receptor Flow Helmet
POC designers made a few upgrades to last year’s design and the Receptor Flow Bike Helmet was reborn with a slimmer profile, an adjustable fit, and the same high-quality impact protection. All of these goodies were achieved while lowering the weight of the Receptor Flow so you can concentrate more on what you’re doing. Customize the fit of your new favorite helmet to make sure it doesn’t knock around when spotting the landing for a nasty 360.

I love this helmet. The green is bright and easy to see. It's warm and has been keeping my head warm with only an earband in the cold weather. It seems to be built more substantially and offer more protection than typical bicycle helmets. The fit is tight on my head and very comfortable. Couldn't ask for more.

I've had the helmet (orange color - very reflective) for awhile and I compared it to my other "head-banging-deterrences" - sixsixone's "recon xc", giro's "hex" - (the sixsixone's "brigade II" was not entered) Actually, this helmet is very good for my practice DH runs. Ventilation is well, solid fitting, very well constructed. My only con w/the helmet is that I went ape with the additional stickers - as if POC on the side wasn't enough! It is well liked on the hills. And, is it me or just that sixsixone and poc gear are very interestingly, colored-coordinated?

I LOVE this helmet. I'm a prof at a university. I bike to work & wearing a GOOD helmet is a MUST. I was worried about pulling up to class with a helmet on, but I actually get compliments on this one! Looking at the info online, it appears that the helmets with long visors actually contribute to the torque on the upper spinal cord (i.e., the distance from the edge of visor to the neck is increased & therefore damage to the neck can be increased) if/when the head/helmet hit the pavement. So the round-front of the POC helmet not only looks skater-esque, but it may actually be safer than those alien-dean-shaped pointy helmets. Also note that the Snell Foundation, though excellent, rates helmets per their ability to withstand impact to the head. This doesn't take into account protection of the neck.

I have a POC ski helmet and was impressed with the quality of the product. I purchased the POC Receptor Flow for bike riding and going to the skatepark. If you have a $10 head by a $10 helmet, for the rest of us spend a little more for your brain.
