The POC Tectal Race SPIN NFC Helmet provides help when you can't help yourself. An NFC Medical ID tag stores your medical profile for first responders to keep you safe when things go wrong. Mountain biking just got a whole lot safer.
Let the Tectal do the Talking
When you’re mountain biking, crashing is a part of the game. It’s how you progress. Get better. Push boundaries. However, there may be a time when you’re not able to simply dust yourself down and carry on riding. It’s here the POC Tectal Race SPIN NFC Helmet comes in. It features an NFC Medical ID chip, letting you store vital medical and emergency contact details. With an NFC-enabled smartphone first responders can read the chip and make the best treatment decisions there and then.
Trail Riding Protection
Not only do you enjoy an extra level of safety via the chip, you still get all the same benefits of POC’s regular Tectal. The unibody construction and aramid bridge system provide structural integrity, with extended coverage around temples and back of the head. Meanwhile, the EPS liner and SPIN (Shearing Pad Inside) pads provide the ideal combination to absorb and dissipate both direct and rotation impacts.
And if that wasn’t enough, a RECCO® Reflector lets emergency services scan for you should you become lost on a backcountry adventure. With an easy to adjust fit system, you can get comfort levels dialled in perfectly and the adjustable peak lets you tailor the sun and rain protection to your liking.
SPIN (Shearing Pad INside)
Unlike most of its rivals who deploy the MIPS technology, POC has created their very own protective system known as SPIN. This patent-pending rotational impact protection system works to reduce the effects of an oblique fall by limiting the amount of force transmitted to the head and brain. Using an innovative and unique silicone pad technology to keep you safe you'll be protected from unexpected falls and install a new level of confidence as you ride.
POC is a Swedish company, built on a strong mission; to do everything we can to possibly save lives and to reduce consequences of accidents, for gravity sports athletes, by developing and renewing what personal protection is all about. POC has in many ways already set a new standard when it comes to technical solutions, construction, material combinations and engineering, with patented solutions, to increase the degree of protection. POC works in a cross scientific way, from the office at Nacka gatan 4, in Stockholm. The organization involves competences from different fields, such as engineers, material specialists, industrial and graphic designers, neurologists and back specialists. Stockholm is an important centre for some of Europe’s leading research and development experts in the areas of safety, medicine, health care, advanced product development and testing. It's our mission to do everything we can to develop protective gear that can save lives and reduce the severity of injuries. All our products have been tested by top world gravity sport athletes and then further refined to perfection. Our athlete friends love to go flat out but without suffering cuts, bruises and headaches, or in the worst cases, risking back or brain damage as a result of crashes that sadly happens to even the best athletes. The end result is a line of lightweight, high performance gear that offers the ultimate protection against injury thanks to superior impact absorption and penetration resistance. When developing a product at POC, we do it in the spirit of doing the best. We never compromise in choosing materials or construction, and we never compromise safety, quality or performance.
