The award-winning Skull Orbic Comp has been engineered with a unique approach to protection and meets the demands that come with higher speeds, more violent impacts and the repetitive violence caused by hitting gates. Skull Orbic Comp has a patent pending deflector panel with multi-impact EPP and POC’s VPD 2.0 compound in the front, which allows gates to be deflected with minimal energy transmission to the head. The deflector panel also protects the liner of the helmet, which maintains the integrity of the helmet and ensures it performs when you need it most; during a real crash.

MULTI-IMPACT DEFLECTOR PANEL
Through examining helmets used by World Cup alpine racers, POC identified that they were worn out in the front caused by repeated impacts from the gates. The violence was more severe than we had ever imagined and the discovery led us to developing the Multi-Impact Deflector Panels, featured in the new line of Skull Orbic helmets.
Deflector panels decrease the transmitted force of the impact, and increase the shock absorbing capacity of the helmets. This ensures that the helmet performance remains at the highest level when itäó»s really needed: in a real crash.
Patented VPD 2.0 that has extreme impact absorbing properties, is integrated in the deflector panel of the Skull Orbic Comp and proven very efficient for repeated impacts.
Most helmets today have liners made of EPS (Expanded Polystyrene), a great shock absorbing material, but it will be permanently compressed when absorbing an impact, even a minor one. Using multi-impact EPP (Expanded Polypropylene) as core material creates a helmet that will protect your head over and over again.
Patent pending membrane between the shell and the EPP core that prevents penetration without compromising cushioning abilities.
New FIS Helmet Rules
Note: New regulation (2014/15) is applicable at all levels without exception for the 2016/17 season. All helmets that meet this new regulation in our store are labelled "FIS" for your convenience.
