When a helmet is light but still meets safety regulations and provides a sleek style, then you know you have found something great! The Synapsis 2.0 ski helmet by POC is a helmet that does just that. With this adult ski helmet, you will be provided full safety as it is certified according to the CE-1077 as well as ASTM standards. This is all made possible by using POC's patent pending ballistic Anti Penetration Barrier. In the injection process, the Aramid is placed between the thin outer shell and the liner. This makes the helmet withstand penetration despite its low weight. The Synapsis 2.0 helmet has a brim for added style and safety. The brim will help to block out the suns rays as well as deter debris and other elements from coming in contact with your face or goggles. The brim also adds a sophisticated, and ultra sporty look to the helmet. The bold and clean color of this POC helmet will keep you looking fresh and clean as you power down the slopes. The technology of the Synapsis 2.0 helmet was created to give you a comfortable experience, safe experience.
Super light detachable earpiece pad
In-mold aramid membrane between the shell and EPS prevents penetration through the thin shell
When you find the right Helmet it just FEELS right. I tried on 5+ helmets and realized how different the fit each helmet has and how u just have to find the one that best contours to the shape of each persons head. After getting this style the interior fit was GREAT, the exterior streamline look was awesome, the warmth and comfort was excellent.
The 2011 current Synapsis fits a tad more snug than the earlier version though they look very similar. I bought it because of the visor which I leave on all the time and the side vent portals. I find it to be very comfortable and wear it all day every day. The visor keeps the sun off the lens reducing eye strain even more and snow off the lens in the storms. The only drawback is what to do with your goggles when not wearing them on your face. You can put them in the front of the visor which will hold them but then you are more likely to bang your lens into objects. At the end of the day my POC Lobes come off and go into the bag and into my pocket. By the way, the Lobes work great with this helmet!
