Helmets POC always strives to find new innovations or ways to improve existing concepts and technologies, in order to create the best helmets out there.


Looking at the evolution of skis and snowboards since a few decades back, it’s clear that the drive to make better equipment has also increased the speed of professional as well as amateur skiers and snowboarders, demanding more from the protective gear. POC always strives to find new innovations or ways to improve existing concepts and technologies, in order to create the best helmets out there. The end result is a line of lightweight, high performance helmets that offer the ultimate protection against head injury thanks to superior impact absorption and penetration resistance. Whether you’re into gates, park, backcountry or just having fun on the mountain POC’s collection holds a large choice of snow sport helmets for you. Aramid Bridges

By molding aramid bridges into the helmet structure, POC has managed to create in-mold helmets that maintain their low weight, but adds toughness, durability and structural strength. The aramid bridges have very high tensile strength and low deformation and transmit the impact energy laterally, improving the protection and the structural stability. Aramid Penetration Barrier

Aramid fiber is an excellent material for ballistic protection. By molding it to the shock-absorbing structure of the helmet, it makes a great penetration barrier to protect you

from branches, poles, rocks and other pointy objects on the mountain, at the same time increasing the structural stability and the resistance of the helmet. Ventilated Double Shell

The patented system with double overlapping shells was designed in order to create a ventilation system that can be closed off for cold days or opened up for warm spring days in sunny slopes, and that still protects from penetration from sharp objects. This also makes the helmet robust and highly protective, without getting heavy. Multi-Impact EPP Core

Traditional helmets have cores made of energy-absorbing EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) that deforms permanently when absorbing a shock. In some helmets, POC has changed the polystyrene for polypropylene (EPP) which returns to its original shape and structure after compression, allowing it to absorb multiple impacts. MIPS

Traditional helmet testing methods only test vertical falls. However, in real life a ski helmet will most likely take crashes at speed. These impacts are oblique and create rotational forces that will be transmitted to the brain, which is extremely sensitive to this kind of violence. Humans are simply not constructed for high speed! The MIPS

technology (for Multi-directional Impact Protection System) allows the outer shell to move around the inner shell in case of oblique impacts, which allows the helmet to absorb the rotational forces. Semi-Hard Shell

POC’s semi-hard shell is tapered in thickness with thinner shell at the top of the head and thicker at the brim, combining the shock absorption of an in-mold helmet with the resistance and penetration protection of a hard-shell. Supracor

Because the shock absorbing core of a helmet starts compressing at a certain level of energy, smaller impacts will be transmitted straight to the head. The Supracor honeycomb is optimized to absorb all impacts up to the minimum energy of the core, relieving the brain from smaller repetitive shocks. Ear chambers

The body’s balance organs are located in the ears, and many race helmets impair their function by being too tight and too closed. POC’s race helmets have ear chambers that transmit air pressure, which sustains hearing and allows the balance organs to work properly.


Fornix

Frontal

Light weight, well ventilated and safe. By molding aramid bridges into the construction, POC could create a super light weight helmet while maintaining structural stability and protection. With six adjustable top vents, two front vents, two rear vents and goggle vents the Fornix’s ventilation system is designed to keep your head cool and your goggles clear of fog. The turn-ring size adjustment system provides a comfortable, snug fit.

Full coverage, efficient ventilation. Three different ventilation systems combined in a hybrid of hard shell and in-mold helmet: Goggle vents in the front, chimney vents in the back and adjustable top vents keep your head cool while the in-mold top keeps the weight down and provides excellent shock absorption. The hard shell brim adds robustness and provides more coverage and protection to the sides of the head.

Body Armor With a strong emphasis on freedom of movement, POC has developed a range of highly protective gear adapted to the different needs of skiers and snowboarders of all levels. POC’s body armor is not only designed to give you the highest possible level of protection when riding, it’s also designed to be as comfortable to wear as possible. The highly efficient ventilation technology is another major advantage of the POC armor. To sum up, POC’s body protection will give you unsurpassed levels of comfort and safety. Looking at our range we hope that you will find a product for your personal need. VPD

The VPD range offers exceptional shock absorbing properties, while being soft and flexible and adapting to create an individual fit. Outstandingly comfortable, it follows the shape of your body anatomically and ergonomically to give you complete freedom of movement. Due to the ability to transition from soft to hard when needed and the extreme level of shock absorption, you no longer have to choose between comfort and proper protection.

VPD 2.0

The new VPD 2.0 is based on the VPD concept, but the material is slightly revised. The improved compound provides an even higher absorption of energy and offers a better flexibility in cold temperatures and has an increased tear resistance.

CE Level 1

POC’s hard shell protection shields and spreads impact energy. They are all made to last through several impacts and crashes thanks to the durable construction and multi-impact shock absorption. Multi Impact

force (kn) 21

Hard Shell protection

Many types of protection out there are lightweight, but less efficient when it comes to shock absorption. Some perform well at a first impact, but degrade for every following impact. The energy absorption of the VPD material remains at the same high level, hit after hit. This is an important issue since a protector will most likely take several beatings both during one fall, but also during its complete life time.

Goggles With the experience gained in goggle optics, POC decided to take the next step with the conviction that we would also be able to make a difference in the field of high performance eyewear and goggles. Poc’s goggles are developed to optimize vision, function and protection, fulfilling the needs depending on activity and conditions. Along with protecting your eyes from snow, ice, rain, slipstream, uv-rays, branches etc. As well as assisting your vision in different light conditions, POC goggles are designed to optimize the field of view, for better peripheral perception, giving faster reaction and therefore promoting safety. Polyurethane frames

As an alternative to hard plastic frames, POC goggles are made of soft and flexible polyurethane. This promotes safety in case of impact as the frame spreads and absorbs some of the impact energy instead of transmitting it straight to the face. It also makes the frame more comfortable.

Frame sizes

Every individual has a different size, shape and geometry of nose, cheekbones and front, and the fit of a goggle depends as much on these facial features as on the size of the face. POC’s line of goggles provides a wide range of sizes and shapes for the best comfort and function. Optimized field of view

POC’s goggles are designed to allow a wider field of view, which allows the rider to react earlier to objects approaching from the sides, and promotes safety by giving the possibility to avoid collisions. In addition to this, it feels great to have an unobstructed view. Silicon anti-slip treatment

Triple-layer foam

Two different densities of foam and one layer of soft fleece provide a soft and tight fit with a pleasant feeling against the skin. Lenses

All POC goggles have lenses made from the best materials available for their use. The wide lens range includes the best lenses when it comes to optics, resistance and protection. Examples are a lens featuring a unique new polarization technique allowing an optimized filter for snow sports, injection molded pc lenses to minimize optical distortion and NXT lenses, unbreakable lenses providing superior optics to other known lens materials. Read more about our lenses in the Lenses chapter.

The inside of the goggle straps have stripes of grippy silicone, that makes them stick to the helmet and allows you to adjust the position of the goggle by placing the strap at a comfortable height. 25


Cornea

Lobes

Wide angle and comfort. The soft PU frame with goggle strap outriggers and triple-layer foam fits comfortably on any face. Placing the lens outside of a wide frame provides the field of vision needed to improve reaction times and avoid collisions. The lens has been injected to a cylindrical shape for superb optical qualities and minimal distortion. To avoid steaming the inner lens is made of anti-fog treated CP.

Designed to promote your vision. The Lobes goggles provide an exceptionally wide field of view, which POC achieved by the large size and the outside placement of the lens. Injection molded to a spherical shape, perfectly tapered thickness and cut to shape using computerized control, the outer lens has superb optical qualities.

Lenses Different users and activities demand different lens properties. POC has developed a wide range of technically advanced lenses to fulfill every need.

Polycarbonate lenses

Most of our double lenses have an outer lens made of polycarbonate (PC), coated with the best anti-scratch treatment available. All models with the PC lens are 100% UV blocking and they also provide good penetration resistance.

Photochromatic

POC’s Photochromatic lenses are capable of changing color on exposure to UV. This allows your goggle to adapt to light conditions, so you’ll have the right lens tint regardless of the weather and time of the day. 3P - POC Partially Polarized

Cellulose Proprionate lenses

CP lenses are used to minimize the optical distortion. They also have great anti-fog properties, which is why they are used for inner lenses or for our Comp range of single lenses. Comp single lenses

Made of CP, the POC Comp single lenses are preferred by competitive racers racer who prioritize minimized optical distortion and superior vision over resistance and anti-fog properties for their race runs. The base material and antifog coating chosen for POC’s race goggles are the best available. NXT lenses for performance goggles

Unbreakable with superior optics. Initially developed for fighter jet canopies, the NXT polymer is a superior lens material with exceptional properties when it comes to durability, weight and optical properties.

Researchers have lately questioned the usage of 100% polarization in ski goggles, due to the need of visually differentiating snow from ice. 100% polarization minimizes glare from ice and reflections from different snow structures, which makes it harder to see the exact snow conditions ahead. POC is now able to offer the optimized 3P NXT lens which has a partially polarized effect, transmitting enough glare for the user to get accurate information about snow conditions, but excluding excessive glare to relieve the eyes. Lens coatings

Anti-scratch/Anti-fog treatment: All POC’s PC and NXT lenses come with the best treatments to make them resistant to scratches and prevent them from fogging up. HCD: Short for High Chromatic Definition, this color boosting filter has an extreme contrast enhancing effect and takes goggle lens clarity to a new dimension Oleophobic/Hydrophobic treatment: a grease- and water repellent coating help keep your goggles clear and clean Photochromatic filter: Light activated coating that enables the lens to change tint depending on the current light conditions.

VLT - Visible Light Transmission

A measurement that specifies the percentage of light coming through the lens and reaching your eyes, a totally clear lens for dark conditions typically have around 90% VLT and a very dark colored lens with mirror for sunny conditions may have down to 10% VLT. Most allround lenses will be found between 30 to 60 %. In POC’s range of lenses you will find alternatives for all kinds of conditions. Colors vs. light conditions

The color spectrum runs from blue to red with a lot of different shades in between. The color sensation and perception will differ between individuals and due to this the choice of lens color will to an extent be a subjective matter. One basic rule explains the contrast enhancing effect by studying the color spectrum. When choosing a lens with yellow, orange, pink or red color it blocks out more of the blue end of the color spectrum. This enhances contrast, enabling you to make out shapes and bumps in the snow more clearly, which is an advantage in low light, fog and flat light, but also in moderate light. However some individuals experience good contrast by blocking the other end of the spectra as well, by using a blue tint.

Eyes by POC With the experience gained in optics, POC decided to take the next step, with the conviction that we would be able to make a difference in this field as well. Our sunglasses use NXT lenses, which were initially developed for fighter jet canopies. These lenses offer extreme impact, temperature and chemical resistanace, together with superior optical performance compared to the existing technologies, such as polycarbonate.

Gloves Nothing can match a pair of genuine leather gloves for grip or feel. POC’s range of high quality goat skin gloves and mittens are designed to become long lasting friends. To provide you with the best possible comfort, warmth and ventilation of excess moisture, they’re constructed using only the best materials available. The fit has been essential in the designing of the constructions. The glove design has been tweaked and revised for this collection, eliminating bulk for better circulation and focusing on freedom of movement for high comfort and function.

New for this year is the WBM: Water Barrier Membrane. It is a water- and windproof membrane with excellent breathability, which is featured in the models ”Wrist Freeride” and ”Nail Color”, improving their resistance to any weather.

POC gloves have an amazing gripping surface of high quality goatskin. The Thinsulate™ padding provides excellent insulation with great breathability and moisture resistance. The insulation is optimized for warmth on the top of the hands, and a special compressed version with high adherence provides more grip in the palm for better control.

Due to POC’s mission to reduce injuries, many of our gloves feature protective panels of EVA, to protect your hands from racing gates, trees, rocks or other hard objects. These are designed in a way to optimize protection, movement and function of the different goggles. POC’s most advanced Race gloves also feature a sandwich construction of the extremely shock absorbing VPD 2.0 at the thumb.

The Pittards leather has been specially developed with a water repellent structure to keep the hands dry, providing improved insulation characteristics even under the most adverse conditions. It also provides exceptional grip, sweat resistance and abrasion resistance, which retains the suppleness and the feel of the leather. The needs and preferences are different from one individual to the next, and POC promotes this diversity. Whether you are looking for a light and flexible version for big mountains or a race glove with protective panels, you will find it here!
