Official PSIA-AASI Supplier POC has a well-earned reputation for developing award-winning helmets that balance the primary need for optimal safety with essential performance requirements such as weight, ventilation, comfort and aerodynamics.
It’s the result of a “Whole Helmet Approach,” in which each component, feature, and material is designed to work seamlessly together to enhance protection. Different types of impact require helmets that will protect in a multitude of ways, such as: reducing rotational friction with the design and material used in the shell; fusing advanced materials within materials; or, when needed, inventing completely new technology.
Also, optimizing weight, ventilation, fine tuning comfort, improving aerodynamics so you use less energy, integrating eyewear for improved vision, will all make a significant impact on a wearer’s ability to react to danger, and thus avoid needing to use the helmet in an impact.
Three POC products for summer and fall use that exemplify the “Whole Helmet Approach” (and which PSIA-AASI members can purchase via the Pro Offers page) include:
Coron Air Carbon SPIN: Designed to deliver performance protection all day long, the Coron Air Carbon SPIN features optimized ventilation channels to ensure airflow is maximized at both low and high speeds, making it ideal for all-day use, especially during transfers between Enduro stages. The helmet features an advanced carbon fiber shell for unparalleled strength and low weight properties.
Omne Air SPIN: Whether on the morning commute or out for a weekend ride, the Omne Air SPIN pushes you to go further. Optimal liner density and thicker core protection zones provide ideal all-round protection for everyday use, while ventilation channels and a low weight deliver optimum comfort and functionality on longer rides.
Tectal Race SPIN: With the inclusion of SPIN (Shearing Pad INside), POC’s patent-pending silicone pad technology system, the Tectal Race SPIN further builds on the brand’s whole-helmet approach to design and construction in order to deliver superior levels of comfort, fit and performance.
