The award-winning Ventral Air SPIN features ventilation ports and internal channels for precise control of air intake and release at all speeds and to give a supreme cooling effect to the whole head, making it ideal for long rides in the mountains or on hotter days.
The exceptionally lightweight helmet works to enhance a rider’s aerodynamic profile and minimize drag. Specific airflow zones enhance ventilation and cooling, and the aerodynamically optimized trailing edge reduces turbulence and generates longer linear airflow for enhanced performance.
Oblique impact protection is necessary to counter the forces involved in non-linear impacts, which are a common cause of head injury. SPIN (Shearing Pad INside) pads are integrated inside a helmet and add an extra layer of oblique impact protection by shearing in any direction, reducing the force transmitted to the brain. The most common type of fall results in an angled, or oblique, impact with the ground or object which can lead to a rotation of the helmet and head.
Research has shown that compared to a direct, or linear, fall the force required to cause serious head injury from an oblique impact is often much lower. To counter this common impact scenario, POC created SPIN pads which are an evolution on nature’s own design and use an innovative pad technology and design. SPIN pads are optimized to provide oblique impact protection based on the precise location inside the helmet and by using various pad technologies which can shear in any direction. The aim is to minimize the effects of an oblique fall by allowing the helmet to move relative to the head.
