Cyclingnews Verdict

Rapha gives POC’s Omne Air Spin three new colourways, along with a new ‘wide’ fitment. It also features the same excellent fit, SPIN safety system and great ventilation. It’s costly, but your head will be thankful for it, and you’ll look good, too

This POC Omne Air Spin Rapha, as POC prefers to label it on its site, is — as you can probably guess — a Rapha-ified version of the standard POC Omne Air Spin. 

Confusingly, the helmet is available either through Rapha's website for £140.00 / $150.00 / €160.00 / AU$249.00 (the same price as the regular model), or through POC’s own portal, although in the UK, POC prices it higher at £150.00, and it's not available in Australia. No, we’ve no idea why there’s a price difference for UK customers, but if you're after this particular Rapha-styled helmet, we’d obviously suggest buying the helmet through Rapha, not POC.
