I ski back country on a regular basis during the season both solo and in small groups, we also climb and participate in a range of other actives when out, all of which require head protection. The POC is a replacement for an ageing Carrera helmet and was a significant upgrade to what I have been used to. The helmet is both lightweight and comfortable. It vents easily and is suitable for the full range of activities I undertake from skiing steep and deep to Kite Skiing to the occasional ice climbing ascent. I do mount a go pro on the helmet using the elastic strap harness and the configuration works well allowing us to capture some fantastic moments when out. I like the helmet which is both functional and fashionable. It is apparent that the R&D team have done a significant amount of work on the design of this helmet and it fits my head very well. It did take me a little while to finely tune the fitting but it is now like a second skin when I wear it and is hardly noticeable. Although I have not needed to test its bump characteristics yet it looks well made and more than capable of delivering should it be called upon to do so the sort of protection one would expect from a high end product of this nature.

I have recommended this helmet to a number of my ski buddies all of whom have succumb and bought the same model, and we are in universal agreement that this is an exceptional item of protection.

Great saving, helmet delivered earlier than expected. If buying this product get measured first. They go up in cm blocks so a very accurate fitting if you get your size right. Very happy and looks very cool on the slopes. Not many worn due to their original cost being high for a ski helmet generally.

Fabulous helmet, Great service.
So comfy, seems to have been made to fit an actual normal shaped head. The increase protection around the back and side of the head is reassuring as they obviously know what they're doing.

With recent high profile head injuries from skiing I researched some of the higher end products and have been very pleased with this offering from POC
