POC Skull Orbic Comp Spin Helmet
The POC Skull Orbic Comp Spin helmet is one of the most popular helmets on the market for ski racing. It is also one of the safest. This ski racing helmet was designed with POC’s latest patent pending SPIN technology. Spin, much like their previous MIPS technology, takes high speed, oblique falls and repetitive impact protection to the next level.
The POC Skull Orbic Comp Spin ski racing helmet is loaded with safety features. There is a patent pending deflector panel that utilizes a combination of EPP and VPD 2.0 to minimize the energy transmitted to a skiers head during a crash or when repeatedly hitting gates. This deflector panel is reinforced with an Aramid Penetration Barrier (APB) to improve the safety and integrity of the helmet. Spin technology adds internal shearing pads to the helmet to reduce the amount of force to the head and brain during an oblique fall. Spin works by allowing pads inside the helmet to shear in any direction, a process inspired by the brain’s own protection system – cerebrospinal spinal fluid, which cushions the brain during a fall. By using this innovative and unique pad technology, which sit directly against the skiers head, Spin pads allow the helmet to move relative to the head during a fall, reducing the force transmitted to the brain.
The Skull Orbic Comp Spin helmet also features ear chambers which have been designed to improve balance and hearing without compromising safety and fit. This helmet is compatible with POC’s Maxilla Break-Away Chin Guard (sold separately) to provide protection for slalom training and racing as well.
The POC Skull Orbic Comp Spin helmet is FIS approved and bears the RH 2013 helmet certification sticker. It is legal for all FIS and USSA racing at all levels.
