About POC Sports

POC helps you make the most of every day on your skis, board or bike. The Swedish brand makes high-performance protective gear that combines stylish Scandinavian design with the latest advancements in safety technology.

POC Sports was founded in 2005 by Stefan Ytterborn, an avid skier who wanted to create a helmet to help keep his kids safe on the hill. The name POC is an acronym for “piece of cake” – as in, choosing safety should be easy.

POC bike helmets offer excellent range of motion and peripheral vision so you can focus on the path ahead, whether you're keeping an eye out for traffic or trail hazards. For gravity-fed winter sports, POC ski helmets keep your noggin secure so you can hit the terrain park and send laps from first tracks to last chair. All POC helmets use MIPS and SPIN technology to help reduce the risk of brain injuries from impacts. MTB pads and bike gloves protect the rest of your body on challenging downhill and enduro rides. To create reliable safety gear, POC consults with specialists in sports medicine and neurology.
