Protection for freestyle progression.

Pushing your freestyle ambitions requires a helmet that's not afraid to take a good licking, especially considering the unfathomable level of progression at the forefront of modern park and pipe riding. Packing a multi-impact EPP liner, the POC Auric Cut isn't a one-and-done helmet like the alternatives equipped with EPS foam. Instead, it's designed to take multiple impacts, sometimes successively, all without compromising the helmet's integrity or leaving you prone to damaging head injuries.

Dialing in an optimal fit, the helmet's adjustable fit system hugs your dome without it slipping or bobbing during fast-paced movements on the mountain. Adjustable ventilation gives you fine-tuned comfort through raging blizzards and balmy spring days alike. There's a large vent along the frontside that prevents fogging and perspiration build-up along your favorite goggles. Also, a removable clip keeps your goggles secure without migrating or slipping.

Neck Buckle release helmet during crash!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am seasoned skier and mountaineer for the last 20 years. And using a POC helmet i had a serious accident where the neck buckle of my POC helmet fail. By this i had a unvoluntare release of my helmet causing me serious injuries.

I cant be more disapointed about not only this helmet, but also this brand. I had no answer, no support... after several emails.

I strongly recomed anyone that is serious about their head to buy another brand with a better buckle system., The one used in POC is cheap and lacks of desing. POC is mostly about fashion.

I know that is one in a million chance to have an hyperflexion of the neck throwards your chest and cause excess preasure of the buckle and having release of the helmet. BUT, i think nowadays there is a HUGE offer of helmets and people should care about having the one that will remain attached to their head.

The buckle is the one used in this helmet.

Here is what my friend said:

What’s not to love about the POC helmet? When I needed a new helmet I knew the only way for me to go was POC. POC helmets are comfortable, not bulky and very stylish. In the POC mountain bike helmet I wear a small so I went with the xs/sm and it fits great.

great helmet

    Helmet looks great and fits great. I'd recommend this helmet for anyone. This helmet for me feels super lightweight.
