When POC first stepped into the road bike space, their focus was all about rider safety while on the road. Their AVIP line touted special attention to details that would increase Attention, Visibility, Interaction, and Protection of the rider. In 2015 the AVIP line has not gone away, but it is joined by a new collection – Raceday.
Raceday is exactly as it sounds, a full kit designed specifically around going as fast as possible. Racing is usually done on closed courses so POC can instead focus on cheating the wind and creating designs that will make the rider faster rather than more visible to drivers. That isn’t to say that the Raceday line isn’t just as safe though – you’ll find much of the same rider protection as the rest of the POC line. Much of the new technologies come from their partnership with Garmin-Sharp, Volvo, and the wind tunnel gurus in their own WATTS lab in order to create the smartest pieces possible.
