MacAskill and Söderström Pro Model Helmets

If you have not seen them already, don't miss that two of our good friends and team athletes, Danny MacAskill and Martin Söderström had their pro model helmets launched to the market this spring.

Danny went for a simplistic look, with colors inspired from his native Scottish flag. "I feel really lucky to be riding for POC, their helmets and pads saved me countless times while trying to ride and film for the Way Back Home film last year. It is really cool for me to put my name on a product I know gives the best protection on the market!" says Danny.

Martin chose a bright red, together with the following message running on the edge of the helmet; I am not the "F#K" pain just do the trick kind of a guy. Its not my way of thinking. In my opinion. its cool to consider how to do the trick you're about to perform. I know it hurts to crash so always carry my words on your head, believe me, it will help you in the end!

"I wasn't sure if I wanted to have a pro model helmet. I was worried someone would get hurt while riding it. But after having seen all the work POC is doing on their helmets to reduce consequences of injuries, I wasn't worried anymore - just calm. Its good to know that everyone that is riding it is going to have the best protection possible. A couple of friends are already riding it and I am very happy to see how good the design turned out. I am very excited that the helmet is out on the market now and hope that you like it as much as I do!" Says Martin.

"We are proud to be friends with and support these guys in their constant quest to succeed with the impossible." Says Stefan Ytterborn, CEO POC.
