This winter, accessories specialist POC is hosting an online auction to celebrate its Raceday brand concept and to raise money and awareness for Spinalis, a charitable foundation whose mission is to promote research and treatment development in the field of spinal cord injuries.
POC, is a leading manufacturer of skiing and cycling helmets, apparel and accessories; and it has partnered with Argon 18, fi’zi:k, Corima, and CeramicSpeed to launch an online auction where a one of a kind Argon 18 Time Trial/Triathlon bike will be auctioned off.
Also included as part of the auction will be a POC Cerebel Raceday helmet, POC Aero TT suit and the POC Aero TT glove long.
The auction will celebrate the Raceday concept, which was introduced in 2015. Raceday is the result of POC’s approach to road cycling performance and marks ‘the next step in POC’s quest to redefine the future of road cycling.’
