Description & Features
The Artic SL 360° SPIN is an updated version of the Artic SL that now includes a 360° ﬁt system for a more secure ﬁt. This slalom specific helmet features numerous POC protective technologies, including VPD inserts at the back of the helmet that deﬂect energy away from the helmet liner and user. A multi-impact EPP liner further extends protection, while a tough and resilient ABS shell enhances durability. Ventilation is fully adjustable, and the helmet comes complete with the Maxilla Breakaway chin bar and a new Fidlock buckle that is easy to operate with gloves on.

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 EEP with VPD 2.0 Inserts
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. Visco-elastic polymer dough (VPD) 2.0 inserts in the back of the helmet absorbs low to mid energy impacts. The combination of these two materials provides protection against repeated impacts as well as full on crashes.
