When should I replace my helmet?

Helmets are one of the most important pieces of protective equipment in gravity sports. We recommend helmets should be replaced every 1 - 5 years dependent on several factors. First and foremost, if you are involved in a crash that results in abnormalitities to your health we strongly suggest replaceing your helmet before your next ride or getting back on the ski slopes. If you are concerned with your health, seek medical advice immediately. Second, if you notice imperfections in the shell or foam liner of the helmet such as dents, gouges, or dimples - we recommend replacing your helmet. 

I'm in between sizes, what I should I buy?

If you are in between sizes for our helmets, we recommend sizing up in styles that have an adjustment system. This feature allows you to tighten or loosen the fit of the helmet for your comfort.

What is SPIN?

POC's patent pending silicone pad technology system, SPIN (Shearing Pad Inside) uses innovative materials and design to complement POCs whole helmet approach to deliver superior levels of comfort, fit and performance.

How do I care for my helmet?

We recommend storing your helmet in a temperature controlled environment with little moisture. POC provides a soft white helmet bag provided with your purchase that your helmet can be stored in. If you would like to clean the exterior shell of the helmet, only use a soft cloth and water to wipe the shell. Do not use harsh chemicals to clean your helmet other than a mild dish soap. Cleaning chemicals other than mild soap and water can compromise the safety of the helmet and voids all warranty coverage. 

Is it okay to paint a helmet?

No, we do not recommend using any paints or resins on your helmet. Chemicals can cause damage to the materials within your helmet, resulting in the protection to be compromised and voids all warranty coverage.

How do I change the lens on my goggles?

To take out the lens, pull the upper and lower rims of the frame apart. This will release the lens from the notches situated at the hard plastic outriggers. To put the new lens in, start with one side, for example the left side, and get the lens notches aligned with the outriggers and slide it in place. Repeat for the right side and finish with the nose.

How should I clean my lens?

All of our eyewaer products include a microfiber sleeve for cleaning. Take care in cleaning any lens with a microfiber cloth as POC applys an anit-fog coating to avoid moisture on the lens while in use.  We do not reocmmend attempting to wipe or clean lenses when snow is on the lens as the abrasive nature of snow crystals will scratch off your anti-fog coating and the piece will no longer function as designed. We recommend allowing the lens to air dry before carefully cleaning the remaining water marks off with a microfiber cloth. Do not use after market sprays or lens cleaners as this could damage the lens and it will immediately void waranty coverage. 

My lenses are fogging, what do I do?

Remove the lens from the goggle and let air dry. Do not wipe the inside of the lens or you can damage the anti-fog coating. Never use paper towels or any abravise cloth to dry your lenses, only use a microfiber cloth when the lens is completely dry to remove water marks.
