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 SPIN Technology
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
