POC Octal X

Best For: Rugged Terrain

To extend the range of its classic racing helmet, POC beefed up the foam lining while stretching the shell to cover more of your noggin. The result is burly enough for gravel, but because it's just a half-ounce more than previous models, it's also great for long miles. [$260 at Backcountry]
