Get A Seamless Fit_
The ski helmet that can speak for you when you can’t. The backcountry-specific Obex Backcountry SPIN is designed for enhanced traceability and durability.
Featuring an NFC Medical ID chip, rescuers can get the information they need at the scene of an injury in an instant, thereby assisting them in making the best judgements for treatment in the vital “Golden Hour”, the time immediately after an accident.
The inclusion of the NFC chip comes as part of POC’s whole-helmet approach to design, comfort, fit and performance, which includes SPIN (Shearing Pad INside), our patent-pending silicone pad technology system. Other features of this whole-helmet approach include the use of RECCO rescue reflectors to aid rescuers in their search for lost skiers.
The helmet is compatible with the Obex Communication headset (sold separately) and is designed for seamless compatibility with POC goggles. Ventilation is fully adjustable and ear pads are removable, giving the user control over the fit and feel of the helmet. A thicker polycarbonate shell compared to the Obex SPIN ski helmet increases durability, making it ideal for backcountry adventures.
This helmet is designed for a seamless fit with POC goggles so that performance and protection are fully optimized.
Features SPIN (Shearing Pad INside), silicone pad technology which forms part of POC’s Whole Helmet Concept™ to ensure the helmet works long before, during and after an impact.

POC helmets are made of advanced materials that provide maximum protection. Do not expose your helmet to impact or external force during transport. Store it in a dry place, away from any source of heat like a hot radiator or sunshine through a car window. Clean the helmet with a damp cloth and perhaps a little mild liquid soap. Do no use strong detergent or solvents. Decals, glue etc. may reduce durability. Helmets are perishables that should be replaced after three years of use. If you know or suspect that your helmet has been damaged or exposed to any abnormal force, you should have it carefully checked by an authorized POC dealer. You can also send or bring it in to POC for inspection. Damage that may reduce your helmet protective qualities can be invisible and difficult to detect. Replace the helmet if there is any sign or suspicion of damage.
