Interesting bit of ski business news this week. Black Diamond is purchasing Swedish helmet company POC.

Look out for groms rocking their new space helmets next winter.

Good news. Looks like BD is being serious about becoming a real ski company. BD makes very good product, not always the best but always good. POC makes probably the best helmet on the market, so BD got themselves a strong brand.

I scored one of their bike helmets. I am really impressed with it. I would get one of their Ski helmets but there's no way to affix the goggle strap to the helmet.   thanks for the info.

A number of POC designs have goggle loops although the racing helmets dont... I think they have an accessory clip for those...

Love my POC helmet, best fitting most comfortable that I have had. The goggle retention clip leave a little to be desired though. It is a shame that the same quality that went into the helmet was ignored in the clip.
