The Fornix helmet wins first prize at the ISPO Awards

Fantastic! We are cheering loudly as we get the message here at the POC HQ office in Stockholm. The Fornix is: POCs most recent ski and snowboard helmet, developed for the serious user needing light weight, snug fit, durability and generous and adjustable ventilation. And what´s behind it? Besides parallell ventilation systems and antifog channels/inlets, the ambition has been to increase durability for safety in in-mold helmets. Thanks to the Aramid Bridge System between the outer shell and the liner, the helmet will stay in one piece, despite numerous impacts in a crash. The focus has been on ventilation and optimizing the distribution of material for best possible protection, and at the same time giving the helmet a "tight/smallish" look. It's a contradiction, but it worked. For: Demanding skiers and snowboarders that spend a lot of time on the mountain and needs maximum protection without noticing wearing a helmet. "This is truly engergizing: We have put effort, commitment and competence into vitalizing the concept of in-mold helmets, promoting the advantages of light weight, sleek look, avoiding bouncing in a crash and very good energy absorption, while also addressing the problem issues of durability and ventilation normally associated with in-mold helmets".
