POC’s new winter season collection
POC is releasing its new winter collection, which includes a host of new products, including the Meninx and Meninx RS MIPS, a brand-new helmet platform created for the ‘free’ skier, not the freeskier. The award-winning Zonula Clarity goggles which will deliver an entirely new visual experience, and the Devour Glacial sunglasses for those venturing into the higher zones and glacial environments. The collection also features an array of new products for racing and apparel for on and off-piste.
Commenting on the new collection, head of product at POC, Oscar Huss said –
“The quality and breadth of this seasons collection is a true testament to the drive and innovation of our product development teams. I hope it will inspire all winter sports enthusiasts as we head into a new season. The whole collection is infused with POC’s mission and approach. Amongst all the new styles and ideas, we are particularly proud to release the Meninx, Zonula and Devour Glacial.”
Spearheading this seasons collection is the unmistakable Meninx. A brand-new helmet with design cues and function derived from the pioneers of ski racing and POC’s own race heritage. Developed with a nod to classical ski racing but created to set a new benchmark with clean lines hiding layers of technology and innovation.
The Meninx features an EPP and EPS liner. The interior is made from Alcantara, which delivers an immersive and gratifying sensation of comfort and touch, all cooled via a unique and refined ventilation system. The Meninx is uniquely designed with a lower EVA protective layer to deliver a seamless transition from the helmet to ski apparel, which creates a softshell for an uninterrupted fit. Further, the two-stage earpiece removal and adjustment system allow each rider to find the perfect fit in all conditions.
Designed to complement the Meninx with seamless integration, the brand-new and award-winning Zonula Clarity will take your vision to places previously unseen.
Commenting on Zonula Clarity, POC product manager Sofie Berglund, added:
“We wanted to enhance a user’s visual sensation, experience and ability to react to danger. To replicate the feeling of how an astronaut might see; an unlimited and uninterrupted vision which will always feel natural and perfectly balanced in its environment.”
It’s an experience delivered thanks to an advanced oversized toric lens that provides a curvature and foundation for the goggle and creates a field of view greater than 200°. The Zonula uses bio-based materials built around a new edgeless Clarity lens developed with optical leaders Carl Zeiss, which will deliver precise color and pinpoint clarity.
The Devour Glacial will become a skier's indispensable friend in high places, managing the extremes of the high mountains and glacial terrain.
Projecting an effortless, functional design, the Devour Glacial is inspired by the original explorers and mountaineers, such as the classical removable sides and top to block out glare and shield a skier’s eyes. Yet, it sits happily in the vanguard with advanced technical details and optics, leading a new generation of explorers into the future.
