Fornix Spin Helmet

POC redesigns the Fornix for additional security and performance on the slopes while maintaining a classic vibe that is at home on either coast. Creature comforts, such as the goggle lock and venting chimney, are fitted within the updated PC shell that now covers the full helmet rim. POC inserts their SPIN (Shearing Pad Inside) in the EPS foam for next-level impact protection, and include the traditional Aramid penetration protection from the previous generation. All-day comfort is achieved with the highly adjustable fit system and venting holes that keep you performing during the skin up and then the ski down.

  • POC channels classic design and adds modern updates to the slopes
  • Lightweight shell covers Aramid bridges and EPS foam
  • SPIN technology adds a silicone membrane to the pad
  • Fitting and ventilation adjustments dial in comfort and performance
  • Fixed google clip and a beneficial venting chimney
  • Designed using POC’s Whole Helmet Concept

great resort helmet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I was given this product from Backcountry, but this review is my personal opinion.

I have skied for 20+ years and am very particular when it comes to my gear. I have always fit into a medium or medium/large helmets, this helmet is no exception. For reference, my other inbounds helmet is the sweet protection trooper II mips. Both helmets are incredibly comfortable. This helmet has been used exclusively inbounds in colorado, ranging from single digits(Fahrenheit) to sunny days in the mid 30’s with a balaclava worn underneath(covid mask requirements). The helmet ventilated well in 30 degree weather and never felt cold on the single digit days. Like all of poc’s helmets, this appears to be well made! I don’t make a habit of hitting my head so I cannot speak to the durability following a head strike. I’ll include a picture of the helmet for an idea of color and fit. I typically prefer more understated colors but the brighter colors seem to work well for friends/family finding you easily at the resort. The poc fornix spin is light enough that I wouldn’t have a reservation taking it with me backcountry skiing although I would think its best application will be inbounds as I get fairly toasty on the skin track and will often use a black diamond vapor for these days.

Great overall helmet!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M/L

I got the POC Fornix Spin Helmet in Uranium Black size M/L and it’s great! I have a size 54-55 cm head, so I thought I would size up and that was the right call. It fits true to size. The adjustable fitting dial made it nice and snug. It fit is just a little round for my head. I have used this for both snowboarding at the resort and for touring. It has a seamless fit with my POC Orb Clarity goggles and the vents adjustments were nice to have open for the warm conditions. The POC Fornix Spin Helmet is of great quality, lightweight addition to my touring pack, and also looks great when doing laps in the park.
