POC SPIN Technology

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 - EPS Liner

In Mold EPS Liner

Expanded Polystyrene is an established technology which is highly suited to in mold constructions. The strength of EPS lies in its versatility and protection against single impact accidents

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 - Goggle Vents

Goggle Vents

Strategically positioned vents in the helmet helps to generate airflow and allow for ventilation through the goggles and the helmet. Designed to prevent your goggle from fogging up whilst you're on the slope.

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.
