The FIS approved and ultimate ski race helmet, the 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 skier's 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 POC's 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 user's 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.
In addition, the helmet is compatible with the Maxilla break away chin-guard to provide extra levels of protection if required.
