POC’s Receptor Helmet: Protection for Every Sport

Posted By: The Ski Channel on March 20, 2009 12:00 pm

Lots of goodness has come from Sweden: Clogs, cute wooden horses and beautiful, blonde hair. And now POC has joined the Swedish innovation club, with their complete line of helmets and body armor created for a bevy of action sports.

We like the POC Receptor helmet because when you’re done skiing, you can use it for skateboarding, biking—even windsurfing. The helmet has officially been certified to be safe for all three environments, and won’t absorb water, so it will remain light when you get it wet. You can also insert padding for extra warmth during the winter, and remove it for cool summer ventilation.

What makes the Receptor extra special is POC’s ballistic ‘Aramid’ penetration barrier, which merges the design of an in-mold helmet with more traditional hard-shell versions. The noggin protector also features a special double-shell system which features penetration-proof ventilation.
