You're already shaped like an orange on a toothpick, and your head is only going to get bigger when you're stomping rails like a boss and jibbing the Jehoshaphat out everything in sight, so it really makes sense to keep your helmet weight down, so you don't tip the scales in the wrong direction once you add a helmet to the equation. Designed in collaboration with park and freestyle master, Aaron Blunck, the POC Auric Helmet is made with a lightweight ABS shell and a multi-impact EPP liner, so you can shred safely, without feeling like you just strapped a big ol' egg shell to your noggin. The unique design of the Auric puts protection where you need it most with thicker padding in areas prone to impact and increased protection for the ears and temples. Inside the helmet is a soft padding to keep the actual fit of the helmet secure and comfortable, while vents at the front, top, and back of the helmet help to prevent overheating during warm spring sessions in the park. The Auric comes with two sets of ear pads to boost the versatility of the helmet, but it can also be worn with a beanie and goggles underneath if you'd rather take that route. Regardless of how you wear the Auric, you can rest assured that you will stay safe behind its durable shell and multi-impact liner.
