The Fornix SPIN - details

The Fornix helmet has been updated and improved as part of our Whole Helmet Concept™ to further enhance protection whether skiing or snowboarding, on the piste, in the park or the backcountry. Very lightweight and well ventilated, the helmet features an optimized liner with an extended PC shell and aramid reinforcements to enhance structural stability and protect against penetration impacts.

Designed for a seamless fit with POC goggles, the ventilation channels have also been optimized to ensure goggles do not fog up and impair vision. Ventilation and fit is fully adjustable, giving you optimum temperature and fit control whether trekking in the backcountry or skiing on the pistes in deepest winter. The helmet also features our silicone pad technology SPIN (Shearing Pad INSide) and a fixed goggle clip provides extra security.

POC’s Whole helmet concept™

Advances in science and research consistently reveal the brain’s awe-inspiring complexity and role in shaping who we are. It is central to our wellbeing, it makes us unique, it drives us, but it is also delicate, fragile and needs protecting. It hurts when you break a bone, but in most cases it will heal. Damage the brain and the outcome is altogether less certain. That is why we created our unique whole helmet concept™ to development and testing, where each feature, component, shape and material is designed specifically to work together. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts and our whole helmet concept™ which can use innovative materials, integrated electronics and rider optimized details is designed to work long before, during and after an impact is felt so we can enhance safety and protect any user.
