Product Information : POC Receptor Backcountry

Manufacturer's product description

Targeted towards advanced free skiers riding in exposed environments, this helmet is a highly developed version of the proven Receptor construction. By incorporating MIPS technology, the helmet will absorb not only the vertical part of impacts, but also the rotational violence which is a serious concern in the case of an oblique impact. This breakthrough patented technology allows the liner and outer shell to rotate in relation to each other, reducing the stress on the brain and ultimately resulting in a safer helmet than ever before. Receptor MIPS is also equipped with Recco avalanche rescue system. MIPS technology mimics one of the safety systems which already exist in the human head. When the head is subjected to an oblique impact, the brain can slide along a membrane on the inner surface of the skull, which reduces the forces transmitted to the brain.
