First Look: New Gear from POC for 2021

Jan 7, 2021
by Daniel Sapp  



POC were planning on being a part of our Across the Pond Beaver coverage a while back, but shipping logistics, COVID, 2020, etc... happened. Fortunately, the gear finally arrived, and I've even had a chance to log some miles using some of it. POC's 2021 line is looking good and here is a spread that includes some of what is new or updated to check out.



Rhythm Resistance Pants


Features

• Cordura stretch fabric
• Reinforced knees
• $200
• DWR treatment
• Zippered pockets
More Information




bigquotesPOC's Rhythm Resistance pants have become a staple on cooler days where I don't plan on getting too deep into wet terrain. The pants are comfortable, offer a good cut for riding, and keep me plenty warm. I've managed a number of long days in the saddle with these pants on and have no complaints whatsoever. They're a solution to a problem I didn't realize I had until I stopped getting dressed up in lycra to go ride a trail bike.



Fabio Edition Ora Clarity Goggle



Features

• Interchangeable lenses
• Zwiss Clarity lens
• $90
• Ideal fit with POC helmets
• 3-layer face foam
More Information




bigquotesPOC debuted the Fabio Wibmer signature line last fall, with all of the products featuring details designed with input from the man himself. The Ora Clarity goggle's lens is made to enhance color and contrast. It's specifically made for trail riding and is said to offer an optimized field of view. There is no vent foam to maximize ventilation and airflow and the goggle fits seamlessly with POC's helmet collection.



Fabio Edition Coron Air SPIN and Tectal Helmets




Coron Air Spin Features

• Breakaway visor
• SPIN (Shearing Pad Inside) system
• $275
• Washable padding
• Multi-impact EPP liner
More Information

Tectal Features

• EPS Liner
• Adjustable visor
• $190
• Recco Reflector
• 350g - medium
More Information




bigquotesBoth Fabio Edition helmets carry over the features from POC's standard line of helmets including SPIN technology in the Coron Air and Aramid bridges for extra strength in the Tectal. Pads are removable and washable for the helmets and, as mentioned above, POC's goggles are designed to seamlessly integrate with both lids.



Resistance Ultra Tee


Features

• 3 storage pockets for longer rides
• Cordura sleeves
• $150
• Zippered storage pocket
• UPF50+
More Information




bigquotesThe Resistance Ultra Tee is made for long days in the woods where riders may need additional storage but still want some protection in the jersey. Fitting more snugly than a loose DH style jersey, the fabric is made to stretch and be lightweight - it also has sun protection. There's a waterproof membrane on the lower back to help protect from rain and spray and there's an internal gaiter to keep the shirt in place and items in a rider's pocket from moving around on rough terrain.



Resistance DH Jersey


Features

• Vectran reinforced sleeves
• Breathable and wicking fabric
• $180
• Mesh armpits for ventilation
• UPF50+
More Information




bigquotesThe Resistance DH jersey is made with quick-drying and breathable fabric. There are abrasion-resistant Cordura reinforcements on the sleeve to give enhanced protection in a crash while a single layer of fabric on the elbows reduces friction for claimed increased durability in a fall. There are also reflective labels to keep riders visible when on those early morning or late evening rides.



Resistance Enduro Adjustable Glove


Features

• All-around riding
• Adjustable closure
• $55
• Terrycloth nose wipe on thumb
• Touch screen compatible thumb
More Information



Tectal Race SPIN NFC Helmet



Features

• twICEme NFC chip
• SPIN Technology
• $250
• RECCO reflector
• Goggle clip
More Information




bigquotesThe Tectal Race SPIN NFC helmet has all of the standard features of the Tectal Race SPIN but also incorporates a twICEme NFC chip. The chip allows first responders to get information on the rider quickly which can help in the event of an emergency. It can be loaded with emergency contact numbers and other necessary information. That along with the RECCO reflector could be advantageous for riders who find themselves often excursioning into the backcountry, as many mountain bikers do.

 everyone bemoans the cost of bikes these days, but holy moly! $180 jersey? It's getting silly easy to be wearing well over $1000 in kit on a MTB these days...


I guess life is coming full circle. MTB was born from road biking, and now we are headed back there. You'll know the end times are near when Rapha and Castelli enter the MTB scene

 @Waldon83: I go on the local online shop and buy the one with the biggest discount, regardless of the look.. might not be the fashion icon on the trails.. but given the only thing I do is sweat into it (profoundly) and cover it in mud, I believe that is more than good enough....

 I think you missed an important aspect of the $150 T-shirt and $180 jersey: they will protect you from sunburns. I know I am constantly getting sunburned in clothes from other brands, I wish they could copy this innovative technology.

 Granted I have no intention of spending this much on a jersey, quite frankly it's ridiculous. However brands aren't run by idiots, and people will pay this number for the right name. We forget how privileged of a sport MTB is nowadays, lots of people with disposable income floating about!

 @Farringdon: what would you know about sun screen man? It actually is sunny in the states. You spend way more on sunscreen in a year than that expensive jersey Wink
  • 2 0
 @Mugen: Clothing having SPF ratings is a new phenomenon that I don’t understand. I have never experienced a sunburn through any shirt. I spent my summers as a lifeguard on a beach, just sitting in the sun all day. I’ve had sunburns. Never once through a shirt. Just simple, cotton shirts.

But yeah, beyond that, as someone mentioned above, you can get a simple SPF rated surf shirt from quicksilver at any sporting goods store for under $20.
  • 2 0
 @Mugen: I bet if you wear 5 or 6 of the competition you won't get a sunburn and you'll still save ~50%
Might get heat stroke though...
  • 2 0
 @Mugen: Most fabrics have some level of UPF rating due to density of the knit. Sun protection is not a special coating or treatment.
  • 1 1
 @TheR: SPF is for sunscreen, UPF is for fabrics. You may not be getting sunburned, but you're getting UV on your skin depending on the weight and density of the fabric. Those cotton tees are pretty low UPF, while some knits are made specifically to block 50+. And yes, they don't have be that expensive if you don't want pockets, zippers, etc.

 I agree, and POC is especially expensive. I spend money on the important things like good padding on shorts, helmets, and good fitting shoes. Gloves are relatively the same price. Outer short shells are overpriced: I’ll buy generic ones off of Amazon. For jerseys I go on eBay and pay $15 for nicely used NEMA. Elbow and knee pads I pay for what fits snd with an outer plastic shell.
  • 2 0
 @jdendy: POC is expensive, and I’m not sure I can justify the price of the jerseys or shorts or pants or gloves. I will say, though, that the quality of my VPD2 knee pads are a lot higher than the 661s I replaced. Fit better, too, which will vary from person to person. But from a quality standpoint, I feel like the price difference between these knee pads was worth it.
  • 2 0
 @TheR: I had a pair of the knee pads that lasted for ages before they became too loose. I then tried some race face and Ion ones; neither lasted very long. The Ion pads ended up in the bin after a ride in Austria and I walked into a random bike shop and bought another pair of POCs and I haven’t looked back.

 POC make some of the best helmets I've ever owned, and I'm more than happy to spend that cash on something that's going to stop me from becoming a vegetable - but what the hell is making their clothing that expensive? What are they doing, hand milking goats for silk and employing premier league footballers to hand sew them!?
  • 3 1
 To each his own. POC helmets for me have the weirdest shape to them. Way to oval for my round head.
  • 6 0
 I do love their helmets. I scoffed at the price for years but I picked up a tectal spin (not nfc) on sale before the holidays. It's a damned comfortable helmet for me. I also have ORAs that aren't signature that I got for $50. They're great and they don't fog even on very cold mornings on the climbs.

The rest of that gear is pretty hard to swallow pricewise. No doubt the quality is there, but I consider everything bike related to be an eventual sacrifice.

 @mtmc99: I NOTICED!!....and am still amazed at all the people who pay these outrageous prices for MTB specific gloves, when there are plenty of Work Gloves that offer better protection, are more durable, etc for waaaaay less $$ Mechanix, Ironclad, and now even Milwaukee are making them!! And, being made of a synthetic leather (Clarino??), they are machine washable (***but air dry them, the dryer is not your friend in this instance!)
  • 8 0
 @GT-CORRADO: agreed theres a lot of great options out there for cheap (in price) gloves. Even if you want to stick with something mountain bike specific gloves theres no reason to pay more than $25.

Whats especially crazy is these gloves dont offer a single feature that differentiates them. They are just expensive. If they had added protection, or were insulated you could at least make a case for them, but no, they are gloves with a velcro strap.
  • 6 0
 @GT-CORRADO: fair warning for anyone that washes a pair of mechanixwear gloves - do so ONLY with dark, dark colors. Especially if they’re dirty. One brake job on my old GTI and now I have 8 new “garage t shirts”...

 I paid 90 bucks for a Rapha shirt (for gravel) and when I ate it and ripped it they sent me a free replacement. Maybe if POC would do the same it would be ok.

 Same here. Was a fan of their product (clean design, great helmet fit) but at some point you're like "WTF ?", also when they got bought out by some middle east investment found a few years ago I stumbled upon the agreement and the expected ROI was insane. Felt like I wasn't paying for safety much than for investors (though I guess most others aren't much different).
  • 2 0
 @mtmc99: The gloves are spendy, but on the other hand (boom), I have a pair that has lasted me going on 5 years, even after encountering many trees and too much rocky ground. I anticipate at least a year or so more from them, based on their state.

Also, I like how they did the seams on the thumb--I don't get a raw spot on the inside of my thumb like I do from several other gloves. Apparently I must have tender sensitive hands, like Curly from Of Mice and Men.

 @sjma: Never had this issue with any of the gloves I use for MTB, but while out on a ride here in Edmonton a few years back, I found a pair of Mechanix Gloves along Roper Road.....about 250 meters apart.(had to go back for the first one, as I saw no point in stopping t pick up a singleSmile
Anyways, whoever had been using them must have been doing "Bolt-ups", as they were saturated with silver anti-seize compound. I took them home and filled the laundry room sink partially, and added a bunch of Spray & Wash.....then rinsed them, then rinsed them again. Threw them in the wash with the next load, they were virtually brand new, I think someone took them off and set them on the deck of the truck and forgot before they drove off......
Any of the pairs I use while working on my vehicles gets hosed liberally with Spray & Wash prior to going in the washing machine......

 @muumuu: The Ironclad gloves I had were the Gel Palm, Armored Knuckle IMPACT gloves, and I wore them for almost seven seasons (From 2014 to part way through 2020, which is ~6000MILES), and while they're not completely knackered, the palms didn't seem to be giving me as much relief as my F'd up wrists demand, so I finally broke out the Milwaukee Impact gloves I had purchased (sale @ KMS ToolsSmile ....Only used them for about half of 2020 season, so still too early for a verdict on them......

 Ive become a recent convert to POC. Not their expensive riding jerseys by any means. Their cheaper basic enduro tops are fantastic and I did swing for their merino wool hoodie which is a fantastic piece of kit I live in outdoors and indoors. Recently bought their DH helmet and despite being a skeptic, it is the most comfortable full face I have ever worn (and Ive tried TLD,, 100%, THE and Fox over the years. Ive also had their VPD knee pads and have worn them through thick and thin for trail and DH and they are still as good as new after 3 years. Something I cannot say for other brands that have fallen to pieces by this point. Yep some of their stuff is a bit over priced but their more understated designs appeal to some of us who dont want to look like a pajama advertising hoarding and their items really are quality made and last.

 Bought the Tectal Race Spin as yes most expensive helmet I’ve ever bought but also best helmet. Had an over the handle bar not long after I bought it and then was a fairly serious crash that could have caused a broken bone or two. I hit my head of course but didn’t even notice it like other crashes in the past. The fall shock me up pretty good. Only a small scratch. Great investment. Also had a a thread lose of head strapped and emailed POC and the sent me a replacement even though it’s wasn’t really necessary.
