POC Recognized by Popular Science for Helmet Safety

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

First let me say, lets not let this degrade into an every day helmet thread. 

Meanwhile, IF you wear helmet and IF you find a POC that fits your melon, this may be great news.

did they test the helmet or just rely on the marketing features?

 

sorry, came back to edit so the thread doesn't degrade

- awesome that a skiing technology/item makes it into a mainstream magazine

- +/- it's Popular Science that routinely "reviews" stuff that's new/improved/revolutionary that ends up having no prctical use in the real world or the industry/application it is designed for (not saying MIPS is like that)

- until there is actual independent consistent helmet testing/certification all the helmet companies safety "features" are  just marketing

- in our club I would say POC is 50% or more of the helmets, do you know why? "the pretty colors"

I realize that and have been through all the clinics as well as product testing for several manufacturers including Giro, POC, and Smith.  

 

I think where POC stands out in this grouping is in the ski race category, which is why the article is featured on Ski Racing's web site.

Giro should make a low profile version of the Combyn for racers. It would negate the need for electronic wizardry!
