The POC Fornix MIPS® Helmet offers a lightweight option with great safety protection, and even better ventilation, to all-mountain and backcountry riders. This helmet features MIPS® technology that helps reduce and disperse impact energy, helping to minimize injury in the event of a crash. The helmet also includes an adjustable ventilation switch and a 360º fit system for a more customized feel.

Key Features:

  • MIPS® Technology – The Multi-Directional Impact System (MIPS) decreases trauma to the brain in case of impact, by reducing rotational forces.
  • Adjustable 360º Fit System – An ergonomic dial at the back of the helmet allows the rider to adjust the inner liner up to 5cm for a more customized feel.
  • Adjustable Ventilation – A toggle switch allows the rider to open or close the vents as they please, to quickly release warm moisture, and get fresh cool air into the helmet.

Cassie C owns this product
This helmet is a good fit for anyone looking for top-tier safety without sacrificing weight. It is at home in the resort but will also not add too much extra weight to a pack headed into the backcountry or sidecountry. It ranks well in goggle compatibility. The vents are excellent for athletes who run hot when they get into challenging... Read more

Great helmet, run a little

Great helmet, run a little small, i usually wear xl on POC helmets and have enough room. I’m running this open to the max and still very snug but not enough to hurt. Other that is as good, comfortable and well design as my other helmets from POC.

Nate was super knowledgeable & friendly!
5 /5
Nothing but great things to say about Nate! He was SO responsive and offered many suggestion in my price point. He tailored my ski equipment based on my body needs. He knew things I’ve never even thought about, like my high arches and how that would impact boot selection. We had a blast picking out my skis and he was so patient as I went back and forth many times. I recommend everyone work with Nate!

Sarah was the best! She helped me with every question that I had. Super knowledgeable about the subject and super helpful. I've been going back and forth trying to decide what to buy for months. Sarah helped me make an informed decision that I felt 100% sure of. I would definitely work with her and Curated again. Already planning on it for my next purchase haha.

5 /5
I haven’t skied in 15 years. Tyler helped me understand the new technology and products available. He knew I wasn’t in the market to buy too much equipment but still steered me towards gear that would work best for me to rent.

Spencer helped me throughout the whole process of getting my perfect setup. Not only did he help me pick exactly what would best suit me, but also helped me understand the differences in gear and why he picked these options for me. I could not have had a better experience and could not have asked for someone better to help me. Thanks a lot Spencer.

Great experience with Nate
5 /5
Went through my first Curated purchase process, and was really surprised about how helpful Nate was in helping me select my new gear. He was friendly, asked the right questions, and and answered everything from me. He knew all the products he recommended, and let me know about some important differences in equipment that I needed to know before making my purchase. He also kept me under budget, which was extra awesome.

I really appreciated Gregory’s help. I would’ve been flying somewhat blind on my own. He probably saved me countless hours in internet research. I really appreciate his thoughtful recommendations, patience, and guidance through the process. I feel great about the choices I made and can’t wait to shred with my new gear 🏂

Brett was able to quickly put together a few ski selections for me within just a couple of minutes. It was difficult to pick one because they were all great suggestions! He has tons of knowledge and even has personal experience with a lot of the gear he recommends. He's also mindful about budget and I didn't feel pressured to fork out tons of money for something I didn't think I could afford. Awesome curator!

Spencer was super responsive and patient while I was trying to work from home but also purchased new snowboard gear. I had a lot of specifics I wanted to see with a new snowboard, bindings, and boots. Spencer was extremely knowledgeable and created a video to help me work through my available choices. Thank you for your honesty and experience. I can’t wait to go riding!

Mark won't steer you wrong!
5 /5
This is the second year in a row I've come to curated to recommend me a pair of skis. Last year, I submitted for all mountain skis with a focus on carving and Mark recommended me a pair of Atomic Maverick 95ti 172. I've absolutely loved them. Mark nailed it on the head with these as I was easily able to accomplish my carving goals for that season. He/She/They provided quick responses, detailed technical explanations when asked, and an overwhelmingly pleasant experience. This year, I submitted for a freestyle ski and they paired me with Mark again! I'm not sure if curated does that by design but it was very convenient as I had access to our chat history from last year to look at the previous discussions we had. This time, Mark recommended a pair of Armada ARV 94 171. Once again, he/she/they provided quick feedback and solid technical advice about ski length and binding mounting positions. I have purchased these skis for next season so I have yet to try them, but many other reviews seem to agree with Mark's recommendation. I will return by the end to next season to document my experience, but I have full confidence in Mark's recommendation of these skis. Mark won't steer you wrong!
