Approaching every obstacle with creativity and the inspiration to do things differently has always been the ethos POC has shared with Fabio Wibmer. Now, as he leads and reimagines what is possible on a bike, and as POC leads and innovates in the development of award-winning protection, the two have come together to develop the exclusive Fabio signature series. Everything in the series features details designed by Fabio himself.
Developed in collaboration with POC team athletes including Slopestyle legend Martin Söderström and Robin Wallner from the Ibis Enduro racing team, the Coron Air SPIN delivers performance, protection, ventilation and all-day comfort.
The helmet is certified for use in downhill and enduro racing. The helmet features an advanced fiber glass shell and a multi-impact EPP liner that provides performance and durability at a low weight. With ventilation optimized for all-day use, the helmet ensures airflow is maximized at both low and high speed.
The helmet also features an innovative breakaway peak that will come off in an impact to minimize forces transferred to the rider’s neck.
Oblique impact protection is necessary to counter the forces involved in non-linear impacts, which are a common cause of head injury. SPIN (Shearing Pad INside) pads are integrated inside a helmet and add an extra layer of oblique impact protection by shearing in any direction, reducing the force transmitted to the brain. The most common type of fall results in an angled, or oblique, impact with the ground or object which can lead to a rotation of the helmet and head.
Research has shown that compared to a direct, or linear, fall the force required to cause serious head injury from an oblique impact is often much lower. To counter this common impact scenario, POC created SPIN pads which are an evolution on nature’s own design and use an innovative pad technology and design. SPIN pads are optimized to provide oblique impact protection based on the precise location inside the helmet and by using various pad technologies which can shear in any direction. The aim is to minimize the effects of an oblique fall by allowing the helmet to move relative to the head.
