The helmet that can speak for you when you can’t.
The Tectal Race SPIN NFC has all the safety and performance features of the Tectal Race SPIN and provides added security thanks to the inclusion of an NFC Medical ID Chip. With a RECCO Reflector included, it’s easier for rescuers to find you.
The NFC chip can easily be read by holding an NFC-enabled smartphone over the helmet to instantly give rescuers the information they need at the scene and support them in making the best judgments for treatment in the vital “Golden Hour” immediately after an accident.
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.
NFC Medical ID
Those first on the scene of an accident need immediate access to an injured person’s medical ID. With POC´s NFC Chip and a compatible smartphone, they can get that. NFC Medical ID chip stores vital medical information that can be immediately accessed by a first responder.
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.
