Un­veil­ing the lat­est trade­mark aero hel­met de­sign from the Swedish in­no­va­tors, Poc

220 Triathlon Magazine - - START -

Pi­o­neer­ing Swedes Poc pro­claim the Ventral Spin as their most ad­vanced aero hel­met yet, a strong claim in­deed given their pre­vi­ous lids have in­cluded the ground­break­ing and award-win­ning Tem­por and Oc­tal.

The Ventral Spin has been de­signed us­ing Com­pu­ta­tional Fluid Dy­nam­ics (CFD) test­ing in a bid to source aero­dy­namic gains. The ven­ti­la­tion and air flow de­sign, mean­while, seeks in­spi­ra­tion from the Ven­turi Ef­fect, which is the re­duc­tion in air pres­sure when a fluid flows through a con­stricted sec­tion (in this case, the 13 ven­ti­la­tion chan­nels). Else­where, there’s POC’s patent-pend­ing sil­i­cone pad tech­nol­ogy sys­tem named Spin, an EPS liner to en­hance crash pro­tec­tion, a uni­body shell con­struc­tion and Poc’s 360° fit re­ten­tion sys­tem. The over­all weight comes in at 250g, and you can see how it stacks up against the aero road com­pe­ti­tion in the next is­sue of 220, on sale 28 De­cem­ber. 2pure.co.uk
