 Overview
 

The Fornix helmet provides ultimate protection in a lightweight and well-ventilated construction. POC has used the Aramid bridge concept, initially developed for the ground breaking Trabec trail helmet and optimized it for the Fornix structure. By applying Aramid in strings and molding them together with the foam liner, the helmet is kept lightweight but at the same time offers increased stability and protection and provides better energy absorption. The ventilation system is built on 6 vents at the top using a sliding plate for easy opening/ closing, as well as front and rear vents in order to allow air to easily flow through the construction. The front of the helmet is designed not only to seamlessly integrate with your goggles, but also to prevent your goggles from fogging. Vertical vents that channel the air downwards achieve this. The Fornix helmet is equipped with a turn-ring size adjustment system so you can dial it in to achieve that perfect fit.

2013 Fornix helmet with Aramid Anti-penetration system
Comments:
I purchased this model through skis.com site, instead of the considered alternative model - POC Fornix BC MIPS only because the site product experts consulting me clarified that since I'm skiing only the frontside groomers and I'm a safe skier who never got in any collision or head impact so far - POC Formix model without MIPS will suffice, and yet it's the best value deal during this Holiday season. While Fornix BC MIPS, which is more expensive will protect more the backcountry tree skiers that collide more frequently.

Most importantly since my head circumference is between M & L typical sizes, this POC helmet line offers in-between sizes like M/L which will fit me great providing it has a fit adjusting dial on the back for even more precise fit. POC really offers "in-between sizes" which is rear among it's competitors like Smith (my 4-5 yr seasons old helmet is one of the most popular in the market - "Smith Variant Brim").

Q: Can this be used for alpine racing?

A: This model helmet would not be good for racing. For alpine ski racing it is common to use a full shell helmet as this offer more protection. Full shell helmets are a bit more pricey but the peace of mind they offer is priceless.
