The FIS approved and ultimate race helmet, Skull Orbic Comp SPIN, takes high speed, oblique falls and repetitive impact protection to another level. The patent pending deflector panel uses a combination of technologies, EPP and VPD 2.0, to minimize the energy transmitted to a skiers head from repeatedly hitting gates or during a fall. The deflector panel is also reinforced with an Aramid Penetration Barrier (APB) which improves the safety and integrity of the helmet. Featuring POCs 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. SPIN works by allowing pads placed inside the helmet to shear in any direction during an oblique impact, a process inspired by the brain's own internal protective system, cerebrospinal fluid, which cushions the head during a fall. By using the innovative and unique pad technology, which sit directly against the users 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 also features ear chambers which have been designed to improve balance and hearing without compromising safety and fit and the helmet is compatible with POCs Maxilla break away chin-guard to provide extra protection if required.
The Maxilla break-away chin guard (sold separately) has been designed to minimize any potential injury to the neck or face and to meet the needs of different types of slalom races and courses. The innovative and simple self-adjustment system gives racers all the flexibility they need for training and race day.
