For Swedish freeskier and POC athlete, Kajsa Larsson, skiing is just as much about the hours-long approach as it is about the never-long-enough ride down. When Larsson finds herself ascending high above treeline, rappelling from rock faces to get to her line, she relies on the Obex Spin from POC to keep her feeling confident through every crux. No matter where Larsson’s next mission takes her, she knows she can rely on POC’s protective headwear and goggles to get the job done right. The short clip above follows Larsson to Chamonix, France, for the second installment of a three-part video series showcasing POC athletes in their element.
As POC describes, the Protect the Calling series is meant to show, “the longing for the mountains that sets off daydreams of anticipation. The feeling, that cares not for ability, history, or age, that inspires and makes you smile inside. The sense of expectation as dark shifts to light, warm turns to cold and your body fills with cold, crisp air and nature takes over. The calling has brought you back, every time better, every time more precious and in need of protection.”
From the 2019 Buyer’s Guide:
One of the most innovative brain buckets on the market this year is the brand-new Obex SPIN helmet from POC. Constructed with an EPS liner, polycarbonate outer shell and ABS top, this helmet is lightweight yet ultra-protective and has the addition of POC’s patent-pending SPIN pads. This piece of equipment also boasts an interior size-adjustment system, sliding vent covers and integrated vents at the front of the helmet to prevent fogging and give you the most comfortable all-day wear. Whether you’re sticking to the front side, exploring off-piste or diving into the trees, the POC Obex SPIN will keep your noggin safe and sound.
