POC, the makers of POC Helmets, is a European active wear company based in Stockholm, Sweden. They focus on the improvement and development of clothing and equipment designed to reduce injuries from crashes in cycling and other “gravity sports” like skiing, snowboarding, and mountain biking.
Founded in 2005, the company made its first mark in the industry with an introduction at ISPO Munich, the immensely successful, annual, international sporting goods trade show, where it introduced the company’s goal of reducing the impact on the brain and body, primarily the spinal code, in the even of a crash.
Publicly, POC was introduced to the world in the 2006 Winter Olympics when Julia Mancuso of the US Women’s Ski Team won gold in the giant slalom wearing a POC Helmet and goggles.
Since then, POC has grown to work with a large group of professional athletes from the X Games, Olympic, and World Championship circuits. They have partnered with the Cannondale-Garmin Pro Cycling Team and, believe it or not, the Volvo Car Group, a leader in automobile safety and design. Such partnerships and high end research and technology developments through their POC Labs and WATTS Labs facilities have earned POC numerous design and safety awards.
Why We Love POC Helmets
It is because of POC’s commitment to safety, not just for the head, but also for the body, and the innovations they have developed in the industry that has drawn Meloncase to promote POC helmets. We are confident in their equipment’s ability to protect the head from serious damage in a crash, while doing so in a helmet design that is attractive and appealing for all riders.
