POC Receptor Flow helmet review£69.99

Comfy piss pot

BikeRadar score4/5

We’re huge fans of the Receptor Flow’s styling and colour options. For fit and comfort, this is up there with the best we’ve tried thanks to its size adjustment system. It’s simple to use and means there’s no movement from the helmet at all when in use. The padding is really comfy and wicks well.

POC keep protection to a maximum with a polycarbonate in-mould shell under the outer shell. All this technology comes at a price that some may find hard to see beyond. We’d also like to see some internal channelling to get the most out of the eight vents, plus it’s reasonably heavy at 544g.
