POC Ski Helmet Concepts & Technologies - Snow

We never compromise in choosing materials or construction, and we never compromise safety, quality or performance. 5 Different helmet concepts & technologies for several different needs.

ARAMID IN-MOLD

An in-mold helmet construction is very lightweight, but lacks penetration resistance due to the thin shell. By molding a sheet of aramid to the core, the low weight is maintained and the protection is radically improved. This is called Aramid Penetration Barrier.

 

 


ARAMID BRIDGES

By molding aramid bridges to the core of the helmet, the impact forces are spread over a larger surface, and at the same time the helmet gains structural stability through the bonding of the unbreakable aramid weave and the EPS liner. It allows for a very lightweight and very well ventilated helmet.

VDSAP (VENTILATED DOUBLE SHELL ANTI-PENETRATION)

POC’s patented VDSAP system (Ventilated Double Shell Anti-Penetration) is made up of two ventilated shells that are placed offset for maximum protection against penetration from sharp objects, while maintaining good air flow and ventilation. The safety performance of this construction is amazing and represents a unique take on helmet design.

MIPS (MULTI-DIRECTIONAL IMPACT PROTECTION SYSTEM)

MIPS is a system used to reduce the rotational force to the brain in case of oblique impacts. Accident statistics show that the most common accident occurs in an oblique impact to the head, resulting in a rotation of the head and brain. The brain is more sensitive to oblique impacts than radial impacts.

In a helmet equipped with MIPS technology, a low friction layer separates the shell and the inside of the helmet. When subjected to an oblique impact, the low friction layer allows a small controlled rotation of the shell relative to the lining.

SUPER VENTILATED HELMETS

By studying the air flow inside the helmets, POC has been able to create super ventilated helmets with adjustable air flow to adapt it to the conditions. The combination of goggle vents, chimney vents, VDSAP and adjustable vents makes the helmets very ventilated, with a maintained low weight and a high level protection.

CARBON FIBER HELMETS

POC's carbon fiber shell defies the problems of excessive stiffness and thickness that the industrial carbon fiber poses, by using a ductile matrix as a carrier for the fiber. The resulting super-thin and super-light shell is a premium feature of the Super Skull Comp.

 

 


MULTI-IMPACT PERFORMANCE

Most helmets today have liners made of EPS (Expanded Polystyrene), a great shock absorbing material, but it will be permanently compressed when absorbing an impact, even a minor one. Using multi-impact EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) as core material creates a helmet that will protect your head over and over again.

MULTI-IMPACT DEFLECTOR PANEL

Through examining helmets used by World Cup alpine racers, we identified that they were worn out in the front caused by repeated impacts from the gates. The violence was more severe than we had ever imagined and the discovery led us to developing the Multi-Impact Deflector Panels, featured in the new line of Skull Orbic helmets.

Our deflector panels decrease the transmitted force of the impact, and increase the shock absorbing capacity of the helmets. This ensures that the helmet performance remains at the highest level when it’s really needed: in a real crash.

In the deflector panel of the Skull Orbic Comp, we integrated our patented VPD 2.0 that has extreme impact absorbing properties, proven very efficient for repeated impacts in our body armor collection.

The Skull Orbic X deflector panel is made of multi-impact EPP material.
