Our View

The Auric Cut Backcountry SPIN sets a new standard for on and off piste safety for ski and snowboarders. Featuring POC’s patent pending rotational impact protection system, SPIN, the internal shearing pads will reduce the effects of an oblique fall by reducing the amount of force transmitted to the head and brain.

A size adjustment system offers a superb and flexible fit and the adjustable vents on the front and top of the helmet provide adjustable ventilation, for mixed weather conditions or when accessing the backcountry. The Auric Cut Backcountry SPIN is versatile, very safe and durable, equally at home carving up the piste or facing diverse challenges in the backcountry. - POC

    POC Helmet Technology - SPIN Introduction


    Shearing Pads Inside: Rotational Impact Protection by POC

    Rotational impact protection is necessary to counter the forces involved in oblique impacts, which are a common cause of head injury. Pads are integrated into a helmet and add an extra layer of rotational impact protection.

    When rotational impact occurs, POC's patent-pending SPIN pads shear in any direction, allowing the head to move relative to the helmet, reducing the force transmitted to the brain.

    POC Helmet Technology - SPIN Before Impact

    Before Impact

    When the helmet is worn a SPIN helmet will feel like any other helmet. In the event of a direct impact the SPIN pads will function as any other impact-absorbent liner, and compress to absorb impact energy.

    POC Helmet Technology - SPIN After Impact

    After Impact

    In the event of oblique impact the SPIN pads will work to dissipate rotational energy by shearing and allowing the head a degree of movement relative to the helmet, reducing the risk of brain rotation.

    POC Helmet Technology - Multi-Impact EPP Liner

    Multi-Impact EPP Liner

    Most helmets use EPS liners, a great shock absorber but one which is permanently compressed when absorbing an impact. Using EPP as core material allows the helmet to protect the head over and over again.

    POC Helmet Technology - Adjustible Ventilation

    Adjustable Ventilation

    Heat is expelled through the use of a slider-actuated vent mechanism integrated into the top of the helmet. By placing vents at the top of the helmet, heat can rise out from the head to provide the most efficient ventilation possible.

    POC Helmet Technology - Size Adjustment System

    Size Adjustment System

    Delivered through either a dial or slider-actuated mechanism, the size of the helmet can be tweaked to perfect fitting. Adjustable fitting systems give a degree of control over fitting up to 3cm.

    POC Helmet Technology - Recco avalanche rescue reflector

    Recco avalanche rescue reflector

    The Rescue System is two-part technology. Rescue teams carry detectors, which send out a search signal. Reflectors worn by skiers, bounce back a signal that directs the rescuer straight to the reflector.

    POC Helmet Technology - POC Aid Communication

    POC Aid Communication Compatible

    Drop in the POC Aid Communication headset, it allows you to listen to your favorite tunes and also offers two-way communication. Feel safe in knowing you can make make contact wherever you are on the mountain.

    POC Helmet Technology - Detachable Goggle Clip

    Detachable Goggle Clip

    A handy detachable clip on the back of the helmet helps to keep your goggle strap in place and secure. Gone is the worry that if you take a tumble your goggles will ping off into the powder.
