The POC Trabec is one among five nominees for the prestiguous Grand Prize of Design. The Grand Prize of Design is initiated by Föreningen Svensk Form (the Swedish Society of Crafts and Design), SVID (Swedish Industrial Design Foundation) and Teknikföretagen (The Swedish Engineering Companies), to promote business excellence deriving from consistant and competent design processing.
"It's the second time that we are being nominated. The last time it was the multi purpose gravity sport helmet Receptor+ (it didn´t win) and this time the jury has targeted our recent MTB helmet Trabec. It´s a great prize and it´s extremely rewarding being reckognized a second time. We cross our fingers again and hope for the best and thank you for appreciating what we do" Says: Stefan Ytterborn CEO & Founder of POC
The Trabec in-mold helmet combines functionality and performance for single track and enduro riders who are in need of the highest degree of protection. The construction is similar to how a skeleton is built for both resistance and durability. The inner Aramid filament reinforced EPS core is tough and resilient while the outer PC shell is constructed with the seams located in the areas of least exposure. An aerodynamic channel system and 16 vent slots provides great ventilation while the fit is designed to be around the head versus on top, which promises superior protection.
