POC Fornix Backcountry MIPS Snow Ski Helmet Uranium Black Extra Small Small. POC Fornix Backcountry MIPS Snow Ski Helmet Uranium Black The Fornix Backcountry MIPS is a lightweight, aramid reinforced and well-ventilated helmet, based on the award-winning Fornix. The helmet is equipped with the patented MIPS system to reduce the rotational forces to the brain in case of an oblique impact.The tensile strength of the aramid fiber is very high, and when bonded to the helmet structure, it allows energy to be dispersed over the entire bridge, giving the helmet better energy absorption. The Fornix is generously ventilated and the size adjustment system makes it possible to customize the fit of the helmet to make sure it stays safe and comfortable in place. TECHNICAL FEATURES MIPS technology (Multi-directional Impact Protection System).
In-mold helmet with EPS liner. Aramid bridge reinforcements for structural stability and dispersion of impact energy. Recco avalanche rescue system Goggle vents that evacuate steam from your goggles. Size adjustment system for a comfortable and safe fit. Color finish: shiny Weight 450g CERTIFICATIONS EN 1077B, ASTM 2040 MIPS (MULTI-IMPACT PROTECTION SYSTEM) MIPS is a system used to reduce the rotational force to the brain in case of oblique impacts.Accident statistics show that the most common accident occurs in an oblique impact to the head, resulting in a rotation of the head and brain. The brain is more sensitive to oblique impacts than radial impacts. In a helmet equipped with MIPS technology, a low friction layer separates the shell and the inside of the helmet. When subjected to an oblique impact, the low friction layer allows a small controlled rotation of the shell relative to the lining. ARAMID BRIDGES By molding aramid bridges to the core of the helmet, the impact forces are spread over a larger surface, and at the same time the helmet gains structural stability through the bonding of the unbreakable aramid weave and the EPS liner.
It allows for a very lightweight and very well ventilated helmet. SUPER VENTILATED HELMETS By studying the air flow inside the helmets, POC has been able to create super ventilated helmets with adjustable air flow to adapt it to the conditions.
The combination of goggle vents, chimney vents, VDSAP and adjustable vents makes the helmets very ventilated, with a maintained low weight and a high level protection.
