Gear Guide: POC

POC is a Swedish company, built on a strong mission; to protect lives and reduce the consequences of accidents for athletes and anyone inspired to be one.

New Technology

SPIN – POC’s patent pending rotational impact protection system, SPIN (Shearing Pad Interior), is an evolution in head and brain protection. Through the use of innovative and unique pads inside a helmet it is possible to reduce the amount of force transmitted to a user’s head and brain in the event of an oblique impact.

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 we created SPIN pats, which are an evoloution on nature’s own design and us and innovation pad technology and design.

Clarity – POC Clarity introduces a new level of optical performance thanks to unique lenses produced in collaboration with industry leaders, Carl ZEISS Vision Sunlens.

POC Clarity are lenes which have been developed for competition and all day, all mountain use, with specific and highly advanced tints designed to enhance vision by significantly improving contrast and light in three conditions: sunny, partly sunny, and overcast.

POC Layer – POC Layer is an innovative approach to protecting ski racers from cuts, abrasions, and injuries typically associated with ski racing. The foundation of POC Layer is a base layer that maintains a high level of functionality, comfort, breathability, compression, warmth, and wicking. On top of the core lies a performance base layer with integrated Dyneema fabric which adds a significant level of cut resistance thanks to their patented and advanced technology.
