    Obex Spin Helmet

    The POC Obex SPIN Helmet utilizes POC's SPIN technology to decrease the amount of force to your head during impact. It works by allowing the helmet to move relative to your head, allowing rotational movement that reduces the amount of energy that could otherwise continue through your skull. Besides offering innovative impact protection, the Obex helmet is designed to be lightweight and fully featured for long, fun days on the snow.

    The Obex is easily adjustable so you don't have to add and remove padding to get a secure, comfortable fit, and the sliding top vent ensures you can let some warm air out when the day starts to heat up. POC also added front vents to let moist air out of your goggles, preventing the annoying ordeal of fogging. And, your goggles can be securely fixed to the helmet via a goggle clip, keeping them in place as you shred the mountain.

    Thinking ahead

      I was learning to ride switch this year and this was the helmet I chose to protect the noggin. I was able to get it to a nice tight fit using the boa tightening system. The vents made it so my head wasn't getting super hot. Then the main thing that I love about it is the amount of times it protected me. I caught my edge hard so many times and was only dazed.

      Great Helmet

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      We gave this as a gift, and have received some great feedback after use:
      "I have tried a few different helmets, including the Giro Zone MIPS and the Smith Vantage. I really liked the feel of both of them, but once I tried on the Obex, I knew it was the one. It is very light, and fits like a dream. The vents and fit adjustment system are very easy to use as well. I used to use the helmet with some Dragon goggles that worked well, but I finally upgraded to a pair of POC Orb Clarity goggles afterwards, and those fit even better. I would definitely recommend the Obex helmet!"

      Great helmet!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      I used this while snowboarding in Park City, UT. It fit really well, I had the XS/S and it was perfect. I loved the dark pink color! I fell a couple times and it protected me well. I was wearing a thin balaclava underneath and it fit really well, my ears were never cold! Definitely recommend!

      Great helmet!

      Save yo self

        I've always been that dumb guy on the slopes that doesn't use helmets. Though that time as past. Recently was able to use this helmet and immediately caught my edge riding switch. Don't get me wrong, it did hurt but it would've been a lot worse if it wasn't the tech they have built in. The size was perfect and the ventilation was prismal. For sure am going to buy this helmet.

        Perfect Upgrade

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This helmet is super (suprisingly) comfy. I kind of feel that one of the marks of a good helmet vs a great helmet is that you don't think about the great helmet a single time while you're skiing, and that's exactly what this one is. Comfortable, sleek, and way nice looking this is the answer if you're in the market for a new helmet. I didn't end up needing it for a crash, but the spin technology was really comforting to have. I love that it repeatedly shears impacts, makes me feel safe!

        Almost There

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        POC touts the SPIN system as a significant improvement over MIPS and while I don't doubt it, this review mainly deals with fit and function.

        I found the Obex to fit my large head quite well while presenting a flattering low profile - something most helmets struggle with. Adjustments are easy to make and the vents allow enough airflow for all but the warmest days.

        The brim of the helmet did not integrate well with my oversize Julbo goggles, which were pressed down on top of my nose. My other gripe would be the buckle system. At this price point, I'd expect a better system like the mag-lock options on other performance helmets.

        All in all, POC makes a solid winter helmet with excellent safety features that could improve on a few minor details.

        Amazing fit!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        The phrase "fits like a glove" is not something I find myself wanting to use for a helmet review, but I can't think of a better descriptor for the Obex SPIN helmet. Lightweight, comfortable, and killer looks.

        Copper Red Is The Way To Go!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Ill be honest. This is the first helmet I've ever tried. I was that stupid skier out there riding without one for a while. I was worried going from no helmet to one, having a headache or something after the ride. But Its made super lightweight I forget Its there. Keeps my ears warm. I haven't overheated in it yet, but it was nice knowing I have sliding top vent if I do. Love the helmet! I am finding that push my self harder with it. So its enhancing my skiing skills really. haha

        Great fit - awesome ear flaps

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Got a chance to try the POC Obex spin on a recent ski trip. Impressed - great fit and ear flaps that don't feel obtrusive.

        Comfortable fit. Love it

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This POC helmet doesn’t fit as round as most POC helmets, fitting a more average head shape. I barely feel like I’m wearing a helmet; it sits perfectly on my head. It also has great ear cut outs. Fits my head way better than smith and looks great.

        Sweet helmet that keeps ears warm

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This is a sweet little helmet that has nice ear cut-outs (unlike Smith's snow helmet offerings) that both keep your ears nice and toasty, as well let you have a normal conversation without resorting to yelling or saying 'what?' again and again.
