POC Sports: Cortex Full Face Helmet and Iris Goggles

While at Interbike 2008, met up with POC Sports or some of you may know them as POC Ski out of Sweeden. POC has been making products for snow people, and now they’re trying their hand in mountain biking. We received a POC Full Face Helmet and Goggles.

Large opening allows you to breathe better. This is especially helpful when you’re sprinting to the finish.

These goggles are very comfy and never fogged on me during my practice runs or the actual race.

You might have seen me wearing it during the Southridge DH Race.

Stick around for a review as I put the POC Cortex and IRIS through the paces at the Winter Series in Fontana.
