Let's get one thing out of the way. POC knows how to design a great looking helmet. Those talented Swedes have just debuted their new cycling collection for 2015 and of course, the biggest highlight of the line is their helmet collection. The company is introducing a new helmet based off of their Octal model, called the Octal Aero.

The helmet boasts all the same lightweight characteristics and safety features, but adds an external microshell to improve aerodynamics. You also get tons of coverage and enhanced protection to the sides and back of the head and temperature regulating padding keeps everything nice and cool. 

$300, available now at
