Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful, but quality could be better First of all, I'm a fan of POC, I have 2 other helmets (Skull Light and Cortex DH) and this particular helmet is the most beautiful helmet I've seen. Secondly, unlike my other POC helmets, this disappointed me in terms of small details: - the box was unglued, once I opened it, it fell apart - MIPS pin was detached from the helmet, now I'm not sure how securely it's connected to the helmet and how often I will loose it - the EPP liner edges are not polished and smooth - the liner that covers vent holes was split to layers with no effort - useless google clip everyone complains about. I hope POC reads this will pay more attention to the quality to retain its customers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes board sports better I absolutely love this helmet! I recommend it to everyone.I had a MTBI a few years ago and since then my parents and I only feel comfortable snowboarding and skateboarding using POC Helmets. I feel safe and confident when wearing POC. Because of POC helmets I'm able to progress in snowboarding and get closer to my aspirations. I'm able to ride to my fullest potential because of POC helmets. It keeps my brain safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeping your head safe through anything. I am an avid free ride and Slopestyle skier and this is one of my favorite helmets I've ever used. The MIPS technology combined with the POC fit is a recipe for success. The first word that comes to mind when I put this helmet on is "confidence". Knowing I have the safest helmet on the market (and one of the most stylish I.M.O) is a huge confidence boost. Highly recommended.

How does the integrated RECCO® avalanche rescue system work on this helmet?

Asked by: Summitdog01
The neck roll is integrated with a RECCO reflector that enhances radio signals from search and rescue RECCO detectors.

So my head is 57cm which falls into the large helmet size but close to the medium size so I just wanted to ask if the helmet fits true to size?

Asked by: Iann
​This helmet runs true to size.
