Safety is priority number one, but good looks and comfort are important too.
The POC Kids' POCito Fornix Helmet takes all the technical and safety features of the award-winning adult Fornix ski helmet and makes them pint-sized. POC molded aramid bridges to the core of the helmet to make the helmet both lightweight and structurally stable, and since the tensile strength of the aramid fiber is high, it allows energy to disperse over the entire bridge for better absorption. A size adjustment system allows for a customized fit for optimal safety and stay-in-place comfort. Adjustable ventilation keeps that young nugget cool during warm days on the slopes. Aramid bridge reinforcements molded with the foam liner provide optimal structural stability and dispersion of energy impact without a ton of weight. POC also made visibility a primary safety concern, giving the POCito Fornix a bright fluorescent orange color and equipping it with reflective patches.

Neck helmet buckle realease during crash
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.
