POC athlete Tof Henry trusts the new Obex SPIN helmet to protect him during the most precarious high alpine ski mountaineering missions. As the Chamonix-based skier pushes deeper amongst the jagged peaks that surround his hometown, Henry needs to rely evermore on the gear that he’s using to ascend and descend these mountains safely. The short clip featured above is the first 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.
Stay tuned for the second installment of Protect the Calling, featuring Kajsa Larssson, dropping next Tuesday, November 13th.
