Womens Road Bike POC Octal Raceday Helmet. POC flips this paradigm on its head a bit by offering a helmet designed for the special rigors of bike racing.

In addition, the Raceday provides a bit more coverage, extending down the low-back of the head more than the AVIP does, in anticipation of the possibility of more frequent crashes while racing.
Womens Road Bike POC Ventral Spin Helmet. Its name takes inspiration from the guiding scientific principle behind the helmet’s design: the Venturi effect. This scientific principle states that by constricting airflow in a choke point, the air pressure subsequently drops as it gains velocity. POC’s engineers used this guiding principle to maximize ventilation by sculpting massive airflow vents in the front, which channel air inside constricted channels over the top of your head, then out from large exhaust ports along the sharp, trailing rear.

Womens Road Bike Bib Tight Castelli Chic. Instead of lamenting this change, embrace the frost-dappled scenery and train through the chill in Castelli’s Women’s Chic Bib Tights.
