Frequently Asked Questions

What does POC stand for?

The acronym stands for multiple things, but in regard to the company, POC means Piece of Cake. The acronym is meant to invoke a sense of ease when considering their products. For example, when deciding between multiple helmets, choosing one from a company that puts safety first should be a piece of cake.

What is Spin technology?

SPIN stands for “Shear Padding Inside.” Like MIPS, which stands for “Multi-Directional Impact Protection System,” SPIN is used extensively in POC Helmets. Both MIPS and SPIN helmet technology are used to protect against the effects of oblique or rotational impact injuries, which can cause brain trauma. POC uses both MIPS and SPIN technology in their designs, although SPIN is their own in-house variation and is used mostly in the cycling helmets they offer.

Is POC a Swedish company?

Yes, POC was founded in 2005 in Sweden. Product development occurs in their headquarters in Stockholm. Most of the physical manufacturing, however, takes place in China.
