Description & Features
The Super Skull SPIN is a super lightweight helmet explicitly designed for elite-level racers. This FIS level helmet meets the demands and rigors of those at the cutting edge of their sport and who demand nothing but the safest, lightest protection. From the very beginning, the Skull family has been about one thing above all else: supporting the fastest, safest way down on a race run.
The Super Skull SPIN provides performance protection at a weight previously unimaginable thanks to a carbon fiber shell. Patent-pending SPIN pads line the helmet interior providing enhanced rotational impact protection. A multi-impact VPD System layer is included in the front and rear to deflect energy from gates, or low-impact falls, further improving the ability of the helmet to protect in higher-speed crashes. When combined, these features deliver a new level of safety in a super lightweight package.

Rotational impact protection is necessary to counter the forces involved in oblique impacts, which are a common cause of head injury. SPIN pads are integrated inside a helmet and add an extra layer of rotational impact protection by shearing in any direction, allowing the head to move relative to the helmet, reducing the force transmitted to the brain.
MULTI-IMPACT EPP Liner w/VPD 2.0 Deflector Panel
Helmets with an Expanded Polypropylene (EPP) liner and visco-elastic polymer dough (VPD) layer have been developed specifically for the needs of ski racers. To minimize the force and impact to a skier's head from repeatedly hitting gates, the liner uses the protection and absorption properties of a VPD 2.0 layer with aramid reinforcement. EPP also provides maximum protection in case of a significant fall.
