POC Unisex Fornix Backcountry MIPS

POC Unisex Fornix Backcountry MIPS 4.5 5 2 2
Great product! I sadly picked this up due to its looks but was not disappointed on performance. I have only just learnt how to snowboard and wiped out quite spectactuarly a few times with impact on the back of my head. Glad to say it did exactly what it was meant to and more. After a huge fall and really smacking my head, I didn't have any concussion symptoms, head aches etc. Great product! 10 March 2014
comfortable, adjustable and ultra safe helmet After a head injury last year I did a lot of research before buying a replacement helmet as I wanted one that would give the highest levels of protection whilst not compromising on other features and style. This one did not disappoint. It has a comfortable fit (though the dial to adjust the fit is a little stiff to operate with chilly hands), adjustable ventilation, washable inserts and, I discovered after buying, an in-built RECO reflector to track you down if you were ever buried in an avalanche. 03 February 2014

The POC Unisex Fornix Backcountry MIPS helmet is an advanced helmet packed with the latest technology to keep you safe on the slopes. The fornix used excellent MIPS system which helps to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in the case of an oblique impact. Built from aramid fiber, the tensile strength is very high and allows energy to be dispersed over the entire bridge giving the helmet better energy absorption. The helmet is easy to adjust to the perfect fit while ventilation can also be adjusted.

Glossary

MIPSThe MIPS technology mimics one of the safety systems which already exist in the human head. When the head is subjected to an oblique impact, the brain can slide along a membrane on the inner surface of the skull, which reduces the forces transmitted to the brain. This protective feature has, with the MIPS technology, been incorporated into the helmet. In a helmet equipped with MIPS technology, the shell and the liner are separated by a low friction layer. When subjected to an oblique impact, the low friction layer allows a small rotation of the shell relative to the liner. Experimental tests shows a significant reduction of the forces to the brain.
