POC Crane MIPS Helmet

The award winning Crane is a lightweight helmet with a durable and dent resistant construction where POC has implemented a new kind of liner, combining two different densities. The stiffer outer part deals with higher energy impacts while the inside provides protection for lower energy impacts.

Together the two densities work to provide a progressive stop in case of an impact.

Crane has a considerably thicker shell than a normal in-mold helmet, further improving the durability. The unique size adjustment system makes it possible to customize the fit of the helmet to ensure it stays safe and comfortable in place.

Features:

  • Progressive core, dual density EPS liner
  • In-mold construction
  • Extra tough outer shell to prevent denting
  • Size adjustment system
  • Strap anchors molded inside the liner
  • Generously ventilated
  • Cert: CE EN 1078, CPSC 12.03, AS/NZS2063-2008
  • Sizes: XS/S, M/L, XL/XXL
  • Weight: 360-400g

Technologies:

    MIPS – Developed in cooperation with Royal Institute of Technology and Karolinska Institute, Sweden.

    The new 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. This protective feature has, with the MIPS technology, been incorporated into the helmet. In a helmet equipped with MIPS technology, the shell and the liner are separated by a low friction layer. When subjected to an oblique impact, the low friction layer allows a small rotation of the shell relative to the liner. Experimental tests shows a significant reduction of the forces to the brain.

    Accident statistics show that the most common accident occurs in an oblique impact to the head, resulting in a rotation of the head and brain.

    The brain is more sensitive to oblique impacts than radial impacts. However, according to the helmet test regulations, the helmets are dropped vertically onto the impact surface, resulting in a radial force to the head. This is why helmets today have good protective properties for vertical impacts while the protection is not optimized for oblique impacts. MIPS AB has therefore developed MIPS technology to provide substantially increased protection against oblique impacts.

This helmet conforms to, or exceeds EU Standards only.
