    poc tectal spin - sweat issue

    I just got a POC tectal spin. It fits perfectly, it's extremely comfy, it covers everything that needs to be covered, and generally it's the best helmet I've ever owned.

    EXCEPT that I swear there is some channel or something that collects all the sweat from my head and troughs it all directly into my eyes. It feels like I'm going through a salty carwash.

    Has anyone else had this problem? Is it maybe something to do with he spin liner? Is there any solution that is less dorky than wearing a headband or something like that?

    Wear a cap under the helmet. Not a “hat”, they’re more like a beanie. On hot days where I’d normally sweat too much to keep my glasses clean, a cap on my head helps keep everything in check.
    Something along the lines of this:

    What weight is your POC Tectal Race SPIN Helmet? Looks like a nice helmet. This and the TLD A2 fits the best.

    Replace the front pad in the helmet with a Sweatbuster: Trax Factory - The Orignal Sweat Buster - Bike, Climbing, Hard Hat, Welding and Harness Helmet Sweat Absorbtion System

    I run one on all my helmets to keep sweat out of my eyes, including a POC Tectal.

    I don't know the exact weight. I think it's at the heavy end for fancy high-end helmets, but its still far and away the lightest helmet I've ever owned.

    Thanks; I might give that a try, although it seems like it would defeat the benefit of the whole spin thing.

    Down hear in Louisiana it is more important to have a good pair of gloves with the terrycloth thumbs for wiping your eyes because the skull caps and halos just delay the inevitable unless you stop often to ring them out.

    Going along with this but I prefer the headband variety to allow for more airflow over the head.

    Honestly, I think it's impossible to ride with one of these in summer. Whenever I don't wear mine, I end up getting a sweat carwash all over my glasses every time I jump.
