POC´s new helmet Crane combines low weight with a dent resistant construction. Normal in mold bike helmets are very light but are not tough enough to withstand the demands and wear and tear of dirt and trail mountain bikers. For these segments, the traditional hard shell helmet is better suited to avoid denting but the construction leads to higher weight and other problems related to the hard shell construction.
The solution is to implement a new kind of liner, combining two densities.With a stiffer outer part of the liner and a softer portion on the inside, the helmet becomes exceptionally durable on the outside and well suited to deal with higher energy impacts white the softer inner layer provides protection for lower energy impacts.
The two layers also work together to give a progressive stop of the head in the case of impact. In addition, the crane helmet is also equipped with a considerable thicker shell than the normal in mold helmet, further improving the durability.
Big ventilation slots combined with channels in the liners provides comfort and our proven adjustment system makes the helmet stay in place in any situation.
