Great to see MIPS integrated into this helmet

Not sold on the "Eye Park"....but it's a cool idea.

have you tried one on?

i really want to like POC...but makes my head look like a huge mushroom...not the most flattering look and clashes with my rapha kit

The eye-park 'technology' sounds like a bunch of MBAs were sitting around a room trying to figure out how to increase sales, and one of them said, "Hey! Let's not sell helmets and sunglasses, let's sell an integrated solution!"

And another said, "Yes! let's make a proprietary system to increase customer stickiness!"

And a third said, "Sounds like marginal gains to me, maybe we can get Sky to buy these."
