Product Description

The Octal X SPIN is based on the development of the award-winning Octal and was specially developed for XC mountain biking. Like its predecessor, the helmet is very well ventilated, very light, aerodynamic and extremely resistant due to its unibody construction. To meet the needs of XC mountain biking, the Octal X has been designed to be even more robust and safer and to be disentangled with regard to the entire helmet, i.e. the interaction of all materials and features.

The SPIN Pads ensure that the energy that is applied to the brain in a fall with an oblique impact is reduced. Additional safety and stability are provided by the integrated Aramid bridges and the extended outer shell, which covers most of the helmet and thus provides even greater protection against impacts.

SPIN technology
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.
