In recent years, manufacturers have taken matters into their own hands, integrating features such as dual density foams, multi-impact materials, and anti-rotational technologies.

The SPIN system is based on the body’s natural defense system.

At the most recent SnowSports Industries America Snow Show, Sweden’s POC unveiled a new patent-pending technology that includes a rotational impact protection system called SPIN (short for Shearing Pad Inside). It relies on a series of strategically placed pads inside the helmet that sit directly against the user’s head. In a crash, they can shear in any direction to help deflect energy.


Initially, SPIN will only be available in POC’s ski helmets.

Currently, SPIN is only available in POC’s snow sports helmets, but we expect to see it carried over to the MTB product line sometime soon.
