The Tectal Race is a well ventilated helmet specifically developed for aggressive trail riding and enduro racing.
Featuring proven technologies from several of our award-winning helmets, the Tectal Race SPIN benefits from a fully wrapped unibody shell construction, aramid bridges and patentpending SPIN technology. Extended coverage zones around the temples and at the back of the head further enhance crash protection.
The helmet is lightweight and extremely efficiently ventilated, featuring ventilation channels that have been optimized and evaluated through wind tunnel testing. A goggle clip and a RECCO Reflector provide further security.
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.
By molding aramid bridges to the core of the helmet, the impact forces are spread over a larger surface, and at the same time the helmet gains structural stability through the bonding of the unbreakable aramid weave and the EPS liner. It allows for a very lightweight and very well ventilated helmet.
