POC Skull Orbic X Spin Helmet
The POC Skull Orbic X Spin helmet is an FIS approved ski racing helmet. This popular helmet was designed with POC’s new patent pending SPIN technology. Spin, much like their previous MIPS technology, takes high speed, oblique falls and repetitive impact protection to the next level.
Much like the Skull Orbic Comp, The Skull Orbic X ski racing helmet is loaded with safety features too. This helmet utilizes an advanced, multi-impact EPP liner that is thicker in strategic zones to manager higher impact and repetitive forces and a robust ABS shell to protect the skiers head. 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 combination of Spin, the mute-impact EPP liner and a robust ABS shell creates a very safe and durable ski racing helmet.
The Skull Orbic X 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 X 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.
