Sitting at the top of POCs road cycling lineup, the Ventral Air SPIN isn't just a clever name. With precise ventilation ports and internal channels to control air intake and release at both low and high speeds, the Ventral Air SPIN provides maximum cooling over the whole head. The fully wrapped unibody shell construction and EPS liner give the helmet a great balance of light weight and safety while the aerodynamically optimized trailing edge of the helmet has been specially designed to reduce turbulence giving the Ventral Air SPIN an aerodynamic advantage over many road cycling helmets. Aside from the aerodynamics engineered into the helmet, POCs SPIN (Shearing Pad INside) technology has been designed to absorb energy and exert less acute stress on your brain during an impact, so its no wonder that the Ventral Air SPIN won the coveted Design and Innovation Award 2019.



Features & Specs:

  • ~270g (size M)
  • Precise ventilation ports and internal channels for maximum cooling
  • Fully wrapped unibody shell for optimum construction
  • SPIN technology for superior protection

Sizing (in head circumference):

  • Small: 50-56cm

Comfortable Great Ventilation
by Anonymous

This helmet offers superb ventilation to get you through hot summer days. Often after rides my head is almost completely dry from the vents at work. Came with a bag to stow my helmet in which was awesome. Def should be considered among your top choices within the given price range.

The swiss army knife of helmets!
by JRB_RCCSEA

As a multi-surface rider I was looking for a helmet that could do it all (i.e. aerodynamic and vented enough for the road while durable for gravel.) That said, I love how POC has thought through various design elements to make it the last helmet you'll ever need. In particular I love the sunglass garage and how it holds my shades snugly in my helmet while riding. I also love the innovations that POC has made like the SPIN technology integrated into the padding of the helmet, making the helmet that much simpler and cleaner. I wish the POC Ventral Air SPIN were a bit lighter weight (it feels just a bit on the heavy side of helmets these days). I also don't love the boxy look of the front, but guess I'll get used to that because so far, this helmet is great!

This helmet is relatively light (about 270g) and fits well. Size medium is comparable to medium helmets from other brands. The helmet provides great ventilation on hot days, I've worn it in temperatures over 100F and have no complaints. Also, AVIP orange is very bright and can be spotted far away in low and normal light conditions.

And I thought my previous helmet was comfortable.....
by Anonymous

Even MORE comfortable than my previous Giro Synthe, which I thought was as comfy as any helmet could possibly be. Which is actually a problem I can't feel it when it's on my head, so I have to check to make sure I have it on before starting a ride! Right out of the box, it fit me nearly perfectly, needing only a slight tightening of the chin strap. So far have done up to 90 miles in it without any aches or pains. The open design makes it easy to scratch my scalp when I get an annoying itch, no matter where.

I had a minor crash which caused a small dimple in the helmet, so I replaced it. Decided I should destroy the damaged helmet before tossing it into the trash, so I went at it with a hammer. It was gratifyingly difficult to destroy, a hatchet or a SawzAll would have been better choices!

Comfortable with great coverage
by Anonymous

I bought this helmet after a real bad crash that resulted in a concussion and lots of missing skin. I'm coming from a Giro Synthe Mips, which did its job and prevented more serious issues. I mention it as that is the helmet I'm most familiar with when comparing this one. There are a few things I like better about the POC Ventral Air Spin. It sits much lower on the head and provides better protection around the temples without adding any noticeable weight. Looking back, my face would have fared far better in that crash. It's also more comfortable, but that's probably just a personal head-shape thing. The Spin technology is nice to have, and it's integrated seamlessly. I've found that sometimes MIPS helmets have integrated the technology as an afterthought (newer helmets have resolved this) and can impede good airflow. I also really like the sunglass integration, I can throw my sunglasses up on my helmet quite easily. I don't know how people do this on other helmets with the tiniest sunglass holes. As for negatives... you'll probably not win any fashion contests, but I'm not sure I can say that about any helmet (I bought the orange one and cars do notice you... which is exactly what I wanted). Hopefully I'll never need the helmet, but I'm glad it's up there if I do.

I bought a blaze orange version of the Ventral Air SPIN (already reviewed) and liked it enough to buy a second one in white for raceday. My second one checks all the same boxes lightweight (270g for a medium), fits nicely on my 57cm head, and ventilates well on hot days in the 90F-100F degree range...One gripe that i didn't mention in my first review is the sunglass garage. POC added grippy tape on the inside of two front vents, but the vents don't hold my sunglass arms securely-and I wear POC Do Half Blades. In you are going to stash shades in the helmet, the rear vents fix the sunglass arms more securely in place. This is a minor gripe, overall the Ventral Air Spin is a quality helmet that hopefully adds a bit of concussion protection over other non-MIPS helmets.

Comfortable and lightweight
by Paul

The Ventral Air Spin is a nice update to the Octal. Fit is similar, but with a lower profile, better ventilation, and more robust chin strap retainer. I also appreciate that SPIN (POC's MIPS-like anti-concussion technology) is standard so you're not forced to choose between more or less brain protection...My medium size helmet fits my 58cm skull comfortably, and weighs 273g (- 2%). I bought AVIP orange for enhanced visibility on the road, and gosh is it bright-as in road cone bright orange that pops out in low light conditions...One caveat the fixed chin straps ride a tad high on the sides, and might get too close to one's earlobes for comfort. They don't bother me but could be a problem for you depending on head shape and helmet size

Well-ventilated helmet
by OldBikerGuy

While for winter riding, I'll stick to my Lazer ZI MIPS with the aeroshell, it took only one ride in 90-degree weather to make me a big fan of the POC Ventral Air SPIN for the opposite reason the air flow is terrific, and it feels even cooler than my Giro Aether MIPS (which is another wonderful helmet). I don't know how POC's SPIN technology stacks up against proven MIPS (and don't think the helmet lab at Virginia Tech has tested it yet), but I'm comfortable that my noggin is protected adequately. Admittedly, a good sale price prompted the purchase, but I'm glad I made it.

I own 3 Giro Synthe helmets but wanted something navy blue, enter the POC Ventral Air Spin. I got this on Sale so the price was right. The color is awesome. It fits great, although the ear straps do not adjust, so that might be an issue for some. Really like this helmet, I would totally buy it again and recommend it to others.

Best helmet Ive ever owned....
by Sbkfig

Aside from the great sale price I got on this, it is the lightest and best ventilated helmet Ive ever owned(and Ive owned Rudy, Scott, Catlike, Ekoi, and Bell). Though I dont log huge miles(just 100-125 per week), it never feels like Im even wearing a helmet. Though its not technically a MIPS helmet, POVs version of MIPS feels just as comfortable and safe as my MIPS helmets.

I have yet to experience this in a hot climate but already notice the aerodynamics of it. Nothing wrong with my previous Giro Atmos but in the wind and side winds my head would get bounced around a bit, with the Ventral it feels like I have no helmet on at all.
