First things first -- we understand that the POC Tempor Helmet looks, well, unconventional. But, need we remind you that nearly every aerodynamic product initially tests our aesthetic palate? Eventually, the functionality of the design envelops its character and the shapes of speed become exciting. With that said, the Tempor holds a shape that's definitely never been executed before. Accordingly, this leads us to the obvious question, what power does this design hold? Well, if you're familiar with the POC line of mountain helmets, you're aware that POC designs with safety at the forefront of the creative process. Along these lines, with all of its M.D.s, reading the staff roster at POC's development lab is more like reading a hospital directory than that of a engineering facility. So, rest assured that with on-staff medical directors in specialities ranging from neuroscience to orthopedics, your safety is of the utmost importance to POC. However, POC also understands the differences between mountain and time trial helmets -- mainly that the latter must live with a duality of function, or more simply put, combine aerodynamics with safety. Not surprisingly, the shape of the Tempor feeds into both. Essentially, the engineers at POC redefined the art of helmet design for the Tempor, taking on a more conceptualized approach. Instead of viewing the head as an independent part of the body, POC shifted its focus to include the head and body as a singular mass. This is where the signature trailing edge and profile shapes originate from. And as a result of this coordination, airflow remains attached over a larger section of the rider's body, drastically improving the aerodynamic position. And while this sounds great on paper, we assure you that POC confirmed it in the wind tunnel. During this exhaustive testing process, POC discovered that the two main points of skin friction on a time trial helmet occur at the center of the forehead and on the shoulders. Accordingly, th...
