Description

While some ski helmet manufacturers are content to copy the designs created by their competition, POC takes technology and safety innovations in a new direction with their proven and successfully Skull X Ski Helmet. This ski helmet features POC's Bone Shell, a tough and selectively rigid combination of ABS/PC that deconstructs during heavy impacts, absorbing more of the energy than many conventional ski helmet designs. Inside the POC Skull X Ski Helmet is an Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) liner that doesn't permanently deform on impact, so it's better at absorbing the repetitive shocks that sometimes occur during high-speed, multi-impact ski falls in steep mountain terrain. EPP liners are more effective at absorbing energy from multiple impacts than the traditional EPS foam liners found in traditional helmets. Other refinements include aluminum grid penetration guards on the front vent openings and an LD Foam padded inner lining that can be removed and changed or cleaned after repeated use.

Specifications

  • Bone Shell 2.0 made from blended ABS/PC
  • EPP inner liner for protection during a series of multiple impacts
  • LD Foam lining can replaced or removed for cleaning
  • Front and back air flow front vents with aluminum grid penetration guards

My racers love this helmet!
January 01, 2012

I have 2 racers, a J3 and J5. I purchased this for my J5 as he outgrew his old one. I liked how well it was padded and fit just right on the head. My older son saw it and we decided that it offered more padding than the Uvex he was currently wearing, so I ordered it for him. The only thing is POC helmets do run a tad small. They both say it is comfortable and really like it.

Great Quality

I bought this for my son who is in a local race team. This helmet is lignt and yet durable. He is having a blast racing down the mountain. Designed for extreme skiers and riders who push the limits and don’t always make the landings, the POC Helmet is the ultimate protection for your brain. This helmet has a durable ABS/PC outer hardshell, with a thin, integrated PC inner shell. MIPS technology protects the brain when you suffer from oblique impact; a small plastic piece breaks during harsh, sliding impacts and allows a small rotation of the shell relative to the liner. Testing shows significantly reduced stress to the brain compared to helmets without the MIPS system. This POC helmet anticipates the worst falls to keep you better protected than any other helmet out there.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Cons: Cost

4 ventilation holes on front, but middle 2 blocked by inside, orange beanie insert; effectively no ventilation, but a great fit; giro 10 does not fit my football shaped head.

Great Helmet
