The POC Orbic Spin American Downhill Edition offers elite protection for elite racers for speed events who require an FIS Approved helmet. The Orbic Spin has a VPD 2.0 Deflector Panel on the back of the helmet to add extra protection from hard, speed event crashes. POC's new Spin Construction can absorb energy from oblique impacts by having the internal pads rotate upon impact. An Arimid Anti-Penetration Deflector Panel prevents any sharp objects from penetrating the shell. POC's new EPP Liner has improved fit to be more comfortable without any sacrifice to protection. Hollowed out Ear Chambers do no impact your hearing or affect your balance as you push off through the wand and rip the course as fast as you can.
