Shop POC Helmets
Hey, I'm Rob from skis.com and snowboards.com. I'm joined today by Jeff from POC. Jeff, thanks for joining us. Good morning.
We're here talking about the POC Receptor Bug Adjustable. Really cool helmet. Follows along the tried-and-true POC Receptor Bug shape and shell. Love this helmet. What's the first thing that kind of jumps out at you about... Well, one of the key things is it's a POC's award winning design where it's a dual shell. So, it's in-mold shell on the inside and then a hard shell on the outside and it provides a penetration barrier from rocks and sticks and things during any kind of fall in the trees or anything while each opposite hole is venting so you get venting across the full head but without being a direct vent on it. For sure, with still a little bit of adjustability to the venting too. Right, right. You can pop out the pieces on the inside to increase the venting on it.
This one is the Bug Receptor Adjustable so you can also adjust it easily to custom fit it to anybody's head really easily like a squeeze pad on the back. For sure, and then a nice liner on the helmet too. Yep. It's got an EPS liner in it. Very lightweight. Really good for impact protection and things like that so... For sure. And then moving up in the same line of helmets, the Receptor Communication. Really cool helmet. Same shell. Same shape but now adding the Beats by Dre Audio System into the helmet. Really, really cool. Right and we call it the Receptor Bug Communication because it's actually a full communication. Not just speakers, you can actually use it up with your phone. It comes with a microphone so you can speak through it as well. The only other difference on this helmet is it doesn't have the adjustability so you buy it and it's a set size. Small, medium, Large, Extra Large, XXL. For sure.
And now with the Communication in the Receptor Bug Adjustable, who's the customer here? Well, it's really the same customer. It's anybody that...all-mountain skier, anybody that's not racing specifically. Freeride freestyle. This one's just for somebody who wants to always be in touch or have really great sound pipe right in through the helmet. For sure. And now, finally in the same line of helmets is the Sinuse. Same shell again as the Communication and the Adjustable but now you're adding, getting the chin guard with it so kind of creating a whole different use for this helmet really. The idea is that people like the fit of this helmet and they want to have one helmet that they can use for beer league, for night racing, chin guard goes on really easily, pops right off and then they've got a freeride type of helmet or freestyle type of helmet. They don't have to have 2 helmets in their quiver or one for racing, one for after. Absolutely, so this is really kind of that one quiver helmet, I mean, you said it perfectly. Yeah, that's perfect. It's the weekend racer kind of thing, you know, that type of person. For sure.
So, that was the Receptor Bug Adjustable, the Receptor Communication and the POC Sinuse. Jeff, thanks for joining us. Absolutely. And thank you for joining us here on skis.com and snowboards.com.
