POC Octal AVIP MIPS Helmet

The POC Octal AVIP MIPS Helmet is more than just a bundle of Swedish design and multilingual acronyms--it's designed to keep you protected and comfortable so you have one less thing to think about while you're riding your bike. The secret to the Octal's airiness is pretty obvious; just take a quick look at the size of those vents. Rather than peppering the shell with a bunch of little vents, the engineers at POC realized they could create a helmet that was just as protective with less material, and the Octal was born. MIPS, put simply, is a system that allows the shell of the helmet to move independently from the protective liner, which can help reduce the severity of an angled impact (like most impacts you'd expect to have on a bicycle). It functions in the same way as the brain/cranium does in the human body, with a protective, mobile layer between the two.

October's Featured Park
Arches National Park is known for its' remarkable natural red sandstone arches. With over 2,000 catalogued arches that range in size from a three-foot opening, to Landscape Arch which measures 306 feet from base to base, the park offers the largest concentration of natural arches in the world.
October's Animal
Most commonly found in the tundra of Rocky Mountain National Park, the pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
