Design flaw on neck buckle

  • 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.

Be SAFE

Pretty good

I like this helmet . It fits true to size and ever since I started wearing it my hearing was muffled, but oh well.
