If you're looking at the POC Trabec series, you're on the right track. These are some of the most-protective helmets on the market today, and you'll find them atop riders around the world. The Trabec is made in a few different versions, and this one, the Race MIPS, is perhaps the most protective of them all. In addition the polycarbonate shell and the standard Aramid net within the EPS foam, the Race MIPS gets an expanded Aramid net to help reduce helmet breakup in the event of a major crash, as well as MIPS technology, which allows the helmet's core to rotate slightly relative to its shell. It's a technology inspired by the way the cranium protects the brain, via a layer of cerebrospinal fluid that allows your skull and your brain to move at different rates, thus protecting the brain from the worst of an impact. Additionally, the Trabec extends much further down the neck and the sides of your head than other helmets, which means better protection even at the most basic level. POC's aramid structure inside the foam, which holds the foam together in the event of an impact like rebar in concrete, and the super-tough polycarbonate shell that disperses impact force across the EPS foam to reduce the amount of impact your dome has to handle, are the helmet equivalent of a seven-inch bike you can pedal anywhere.
