POC--The Volvo of Brain Buckets!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The POC Receptor Bug fits like your best ball cap. It is a helmet within a helmet. The design and safety features place it in a category few, if any other manufacturers can equal. Simply put, the helmet is akin to being the Volvo of brain buckets! The chin strap has a pad to keep the clip from rubbing under your chin. The straps are adjustable. The padding on the back of the neck will not fall off after extended use like it does in some other popular helmets. The color is cool and will never be the object of ridicule by your homies.

I'm considering in buying a blue helmet, but what is the difference between the colour 'Krypton Blue' and 'Strong Blue'? They look exactly the same in the pictures.
same color different years
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I received this helmet in the mail a few days ago and was blown away at how well this helmet is built. I would recommend this helmet to anyone.
Great fit for my noggin
I tried helmets from all the major manufacturers, and this one fit my head the best, despite the fact that I'm neither a Swede nor an alien (as far as I know). Your mileage may vary, of course. The sizes are definitely screwy, according to POC I'm a large, but the medium fit perfectly.
As others have mentioned, the goggle clip is really poorly designed. Mine came off and disappeared on the second day. I sent email to customer support at POC about buying additional ones, but have yet to get a response.
Strangely, the vents tend to resonate when the wind is blowing perpendicular to the direction you're facing. It's not a big deal, but it gets kind of loud on windy days.
Based on the fit alone, I'm quite happy with this helmet.

What is the difference between the POC Receptor Bug and Plus?

Anders Backe is the shiz
I got the Backe edition and in my humble opinion, it's the best looking design/color of all available Bug options. The design is so slick and clean, the only downside is since the shell has more of a shiny finish than the matte finish of others, the scratches seem to show up quick(er). As for the helmet itself, I love the simplicity in its construction (not to say the design isn't sophisticated, the double overlapping shells do seem to work very well controlling the heat inside the helmet without compromising its ability to protect against penetration), the durable materials, and lightness. My only gripe is the detachable clip for goggle straps (poor design, flimsy, etc.); I just do without it.
This helmet rocks! So comfortable and warm, but not too hot when hiking and touring. It vents surprisingly well! And I love the kick ass colors. It does tend to run a bit small.

Does POC offer earphones built-in to the earpieces like Giro?
I believe they do!
Yellow like the Sun
I ski every day like it's my last...so that's why I wear a helmet. Fact: POC makes helmets that pass international standards with flying colors. I have put my trust in these helmets and have been rewarded with turns like these.

i wear goggles under helmet do ear flaps come out?
Hey Tristan, Hayden is wrong on this one. The ear-flaps are definitely removable, an option I take advantage of during the spring season. As for wearing your goggles under the helmet, I know guys like Tanner and Sammy do it for looks, but you might find that the helmet doesn't sit properly, thereby reducing its effectiveness. So, please consider 'function over fashion' in this regard...

Is this compatible with audio systems or headphone inserts?
I really like this helmet. Fits great good style and durable. My only complaint is how goggles attach. Its pretty cheap but even without the piece goggles stay on pretty well. Just ordered a second one for my sister.
Sick tanner hall
Sick colors and great fit. I love my Tanner hall Rasta colord helmet pretty sickk. and really protects you head with pocs great helmet designs and double hard shell.
LOVE THIS HELMET!!!!
I really like this helmet a lot. POC put a lot of R&D into the design of the Receptor Bug and it has paid off. The helmet isn't too bulky, doesn't weigh a ton, but has great protection. I am definitely glad I have been wearing it in a few instances. Works equally well with goggles over the top or under the helmet. I generally prefer the latter. Fits true to size and fits well with both my Oakley Crowbars as well as with my POC lobes.
Go POC or go home
Awesome helmet, the best I've had hands down. Very comfortable, lightweight and it's unique design will definitely set you apart from the rest of the Giro/RedHifi crowd.
