The Coron is the latest full-face DH lid from Scandinavian brand POC, due here in the UK this spring, along with their new trail lid, the Tectal.
‘Swedish brand POC never disappoint us with their clean and elegant tech’ were our words from last autumn’s Eurobike show report where these new helmets were launched.
POC have always had a strong focus on a no compromise approach to design, with premium materials, well-developed technologies and safety taking a priority. Their products are far from cheap but rarely disappoint, and can be seen as a good long-term investment if you can afford it.
The Coron helmet has been developed with POC team athlete Martin Soderstrom and sits above the Cortex DH in the range. For 2016 POC have introduced a new shell material called M-Forge. This has advanced fibre technology said to outperform previously known shell materials and has benefits in terms of multi-impact performance and durability. In terms of weight, there is no penalty either with the Coron weighing in from 1050g depending on size.
