The Omne Air Resistance SPIN is designed to appeal to and protect all cyclists, whether commuters or mountain bikers. Developed with the optimal blend of form and function and based on award-winning technologies and innovations, the Omne Air Resistance SPIN convinces cyclists of every color.
The helmet has a partially reinforced EPS core for the best possible fall protection. Nevertheless, the silhouette has been kept as slim as possible by compressing the core in combination with the outer shell. The front ventilation openings, the half-shell construction and the removable shield are convincing for every activity on the bike.
In order to fulfil its mission, POC always develops its helmets with regard to the entire helmet, i.e. the interaction of all materials and features. SPIN (Shearing Pad INside) is POC's patent-pending silicone pad technology, which uses innovative materials that enhance the protective effect in combination with the core and shell. The Omne Air Resistance SPIN is comfortable to wear thanks to its simple size adjustment system in circumference and height.
Oblique impact protection is necessary to counter the forces involved in non-linear impacts, which are a common cause of head injury. SPIN (Shearing Pad INside) pads are integrated inside a helmet and add an extra layer of oblique impact protection by shearing in any direction, reducing the force transmitted to the brain. The most common type of fall results in an angled, or oblique, impact with the ground or object which can lead to a rotation of the helmet and head.
Research has shown that compared to a direct, or linear, fall the force required to cause serious head injury from an oblique impact is often much lower. To counter this common impact scenario, POC created SPIN pads which are an evolution on nature’s own design and use an innovative pad technology and design. SPIN pads are optimized to provide oblique impact protection based on the precise location inside the helmet and by using various pad technologies which can shear in any direction. The aim is to minimize the effects of an oblique fall by allowing the helmet to move relative to the head.
