These Limited-Edition Rapha x POC Cycling Helmets Are as Safe as They Are Stylish

POC and Rapha are amongst the hottest brands in cycling at the moment, and it’s largely due to their technical partnerships with the EF Education-NIPPO pro tour team. Clad in highlighter pink helmets and jerseys — atop equally eye-catching bikes — the squad is instantly recognizable no matter the size of the peloton.

It should come as no surprise, then, that Rapha has tapped POC for its latest collaborative effort. Comprised of two helmets — the Omne Air SPIN and the Ventral Air SPIN — it sees each lid outfitted with exclusive colors and subtle co-branded details. In the case of the former, Rapha is offering three understated finishes, including off-white, grey, and navy. Accented by some script graphics at the temples and a blacked-out shell at the rear, it makes for quite the classy piece of kit. And when it comes to the latter, Rapha has taken POC’s elite-level Ventral Air and given it an equally refined redesign. Exclusively available to members of the RCC, it comes in a cool matte navy with some glossy pink vents at the back of the head.

No matter which helmet you choose, know that you’re getting the very best in cycling head protection. Between POC’s 360-degree adjustment system and its SPIN rotational impact technology, each option is a true cut above the rest. You can buy the Rapha Omne Air and Ventral Air now for $150 and $250.

Purchase: $150+
