Welcome to another installment of Gear Spotlight from FREESKIER. Here, we provide a close-up look at the gear and accessories that everyone should know about. The goal? To point you towards the best brands and products on Earth so you can trust your equipment whole-heartedly and have as much fun in the mountains as possible. Read up on POC’s Tectal mountain biking helmet, below, then visit us again tomorrow for more awesome gear coverage.
In addition to its aggressive, badass look, the Tectal has some supreme protective qualities included in its build. POC adds aramid (a synthetic fiber used in bulletproof vests) into the outer shell and then molds it together with the helmet’s EPS liner which produces a incredibly durable and lightweight dome guard. Nothing like barely noticing your helmet while having peace of mind that it’ll protect you if things go awry. The strategically placed, oversized top and back vents allow for a welcomed summer breeze and an adjustment dial in the rear ensures an optimal fit.
