POC's road-focused Octal has become a favorite among the XC crowd for its blend of light weight, unique styling, and protection. Road helmets are never quite a perfect match for off road applications though, so POC tweaked the design a bit to create the Octal X Helmet and give XC racers the lightweight, trail-worthy helmet they've been looking for. As with the road version, the Octal X boasts extended coverage over the back of the head and at the temples for added protection no matter what surface you're riding on. True to its dirt-focused intention, the Octal X's shell extends to cover more of the liner foam than the Octal, which improves overall durability against errant trail debris without sacrificing lightweight functionality.

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.
