Description & Features
The Skull Dura X SPIN Helmet introduces Race Lock, an innovative new system that lets racers lock the helmet tightly to their head to prevent helmet shake at very high speeds. The turn wheel adjuster sits in line with the helmet shell and does not interfere with a race position. A Fidlock buckle on the chin strap can easily be operated with gloves on and gives a secure ﬁt. A multi-impact EPP liner features ear pads that can be removed in an emergency, making it easier for medics to remove the helmet safely if an injury is sustained. FIS RH 2013 certiﬁed.

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.
EPP 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 it's really needed: in a real crash.
Expanded Polyproylene (EPP) has the ability to withstand multiple-impacts with a very limited loss of performance making it well suited for protection against repetitive gate hits.
