It’s practically impossible to find a decent bike helmet that does not look like a beaten poisonous mushroom. That’s why I regularly check at other extreme sports’ accessory stores. Well this might be a thing of the past now that Poc came out with their award-winning (Red Dot 11/12) design for the Trabec Race helmet. Made from aramid fiber-reinforced EPS it’s designed to be both tough and flexible. Originally meant to be used for mountain and extreme terrain biking, I don’t see how this is different from riding the streets of Chicago.
