Enduro season is upon you, the dirt is perfectly tacky, and the temperatures have yet to rise to oppressive levels and you're ready to hit the trail with no holds barred -- just make sure to cover your dome first. Making a stylish case for safety, POC's Tectal Race is updated with new Spin technology to boost it into the future, helping dissipate rotational forces from certain styles of crashes, while still backing you up with the impact-absorbing EPS foam and PC shell you've come to know and trust. POC's new Spin technology works by featuring a robust inner layer on the helmet that sits in between the EPS and your noggin, and allows the helmet to move in any direction in the case of an oblique fall, allowing force to dissipate and be absorbed into the helmet. Borrowing design inspiration from its Octal and Trabec helmets, POC uses a clean style and unibody construction for the Tectal Race, extending coverage over the back of the head and temples to keep vulnerable areas protected in the event of a crash. Keeping comfort in mind, POC also carves 15 vents and a lengthy system of air channels throughout the Tectal Race so you won't overheat under your lid when you start working hard on a climb. If you need to make a quick fit adjustment on-trail, just spin the dial at the back of the helmet to get the fit you need, and before you head out, tuck your goggles into the goggle strap at the back and adjust the visor to shield your eyes from sun, rain, or the dirt your ride buddy is bound to spray up in front of you.

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.
