The ski helmet that can speak for you when you can’t. The backcountry-specific Obex Backcountry SPIN is designed for enhanced traceability and durability.
Featuring an NFC Medical ID chip, rescuers can get the information they need at the scene of an injury in an instant, thereby assisting them in making the best judgements for treatment in the vital “Golden Hour”, the time immediately after an accident.
The inclusion of the NFC chip comes as part of POC’s whole-helmet approach to design, comfort, fit and performance, which includes SPIN (Shearing Pad INside), our patent-pending silicone pad technology system. Other features of this whole-helmet approach include the use of RECCO rescue reflectors to aid rescuers in their search for lost skiers.
The helmet is compatible with the Obex Communication headset (sold separately) and is designed for seamless compatibility with POC goggles. Ventilation is fully adjustable and ear pads are removable, giving the user control over the fit and feel of the helmet. A thicker polycarbonate shell compared to the Obex SPIN ski helmet increases durability, making it ideal for backcountry adventures.
