POC is a pioneer when it comes to pushing the envelope in terms of the design and safety standards of protective sports equipment. The Swedish brand is widely known for its impressive range of ski and cycling paraphernalia - headlined by helmets and eye protection - and has recently taken things up several notches when it comes to innovation. 

Back in 2019, it showcased its Solar Switch technology at Eurobike with the POC Aspire Solar Switch sunglasses - an item that thoroughly impressed us through the use of a two-in-one light-reactive LCD lens. And it's the concept of solar and portable energy that seems to be the driving force behind POC's future rhetoric - dovetailing neatly between its stance on safety and sustainability.
