The Ventral Lite is the latest helmet to join POC’s cycling family, and the lightest it has ever made. Focused on riders who prioritize weight and ventilation above all else, the newly awarded Ventral Lite has been highly engineered to achieve the optimal balance of weight, safety and performance.

As part of a superlight package for road riders, alongside the Ventral Lite comes the Supreme Rain Jacket which has also been recognized with a Design and Innovation Award for its material innovation. In short it’s a three layer cycling jacket that is so light and breathable you’ll forget you are wearing it.

Commenting on the Ventral Lite launch, Oscar Huss, Head of Product, POC, said “We introduced ourselves to the cycling world in 2014 with the Octal. Our objective then was to bring our safety mission and performance together in a lightweight helmet. After a lot of research and testing the Octal made its debut in the pro peloton and quickly established itself. Starting again from our safety mission, we wanted to take the ideas and concepts from the Octal even further. Riders who are focused on climbing or ride in hotter conditions are extremely conscious about weight, ventilation and comfort, which is where the Ventral Lite, our lightest ever helmet will excel. ”

Based on the Ventral Air’s foundations, and taking inspiration from the Octal, every aspect of the Ventral Lite from the adjustment system and straps to the liner and shell, are tuned to deliver optimized safety and protection at the lowest weight possible. The structure has been refined so that a different density of EPS can be used and the outer PC shell is precisely formed. The result is a helmet that in size medium CE standard, weighs a mere 190g, and an incredible 180g for a size small.

Oscar Huss, added – “We strongly believe that the safest helmet is one you choose to wear, one which you always look forward to wearing. With the Ventral Lite, we used our Whole Helmet Concept™ to create a helmet that provides the best protection and still meet the needs of those riders who don’t want to compromise on weight or ventilation. The Ventral Lite will provide the protection those riders deserve without ever noticing it’s there.”
