POC has taken a circular-economy approach to the design of its latest helmet for cycle commuters. An impressive fifty percent of the new POC Myelin is made up with recycled materials.

As a protection company our first priority is the safety of riders, but we also place on ourselves an obligation to use our planet’s resources respectfully. So, we wanted to challenge the conventional way of creating a helmet, in particular by starting with recycled materials, how it is manufactured and how it can be deconstructed so as to allow for all the materials to be used again.
