Product Description

The target with the Fornix helmet was to provide adequate protection in a lightweight and well ventilated construction. POC used the Aramid bridge concept, initially developed for the ground breaking Trabec trail bike helmet, and optimized it for use in the Fornix structure. By applying Aramid in strings and molding them together with the foam liner they were able to keep a low weight, but at the same time increasing the structural stability and protection. Since the tensile strength in the aramid fibers is very high and the fiber is bonded to the helmet structure, the energy is dispersed over the entire bridge, giving the helmet better energy absorption. The ventilation system is built on 6 vents at the top using a sliding plate for easy opening/closing, as well as front and rear vents in order to allow air to easily flow through the construction. The front of the helmet is designed not only to seamlessly integrate with the goggles, but also to prevent the goggles from fogging. This is achieved by vertical vents that channels the air downwards. The Fornix helmet is also equipped with turn-ring size adjustment system.

This helmet is amazing and it fits perfect with POC's goggles (bought the Lobes with the helmet). IMO the helmet is very slim and tight - you don't have any unnecessarily things on it, and it isn't clumsy at all. A really nice helmet and a nice price! I saved like 40 pounds because I bought it on amazon.co.uk.

Excellent value. Light and very comfortable and there is the added bonus of warm ears! Provided good protection when I took a big spill.
Highly recommended.

I looked for a long time for a good, comfortable and safe helmet.

The fornix fitted me like a glove and I can barely feel it is there.
I use it also for winter cycling. It works great although it can get a little hot on some of the long and steep climbs, but most times it keeps you warm and safe.
