The POC Kortal is the newest edition to their mountain bike helmet lineup. Focused on Enduro riding, this lightweight and highly protective helmet is certified for use with e-bikes. According to POC, the helmet passes the Dutch NTA8776 standard, which tests helmets at higher impact speeds than for standard bicycle use. Currently, this is the only standard for e-bike helmets. In addition to that, it comes with the latest technology from Mips, Integra, and in case of a crash the patented breakaway peak will snap away from the helmet, helping to protect against neck injury.
Colors and Fit
The Kortal comes in some rad colorways including Fluorescent Orange, Hydrogen White, Fluorite Green, and Uranium Black. The size can be dialed in on the back for a snug fit which is key for maximizing your protection. The Kortal is covered in vents for supreme cooling ability and the vents are strategically placed to not be blocked by goggle straps. Designed to be worn with either Goggle or Glasses, POC recommends pairing this helmet with their Devour Glasses or Ora Goggles for a streamlined fit.
The Kortal is a great-looking helmet with all of the technology and features we want to see on a mountain bike helmet in 2021. Lots of ventilation, Mips, adjustable fit, and great style make this a top pick for a high-end mountain bike helmet. To purchase head on over to Peak Cycles or purchase online!
