Product detail and descriptions (highlights)
Tectal Race SPIN NFC and Ventral Air SPIN NFC
The helmet that can speak for you when you can’t. The Tectal Race SPIN NFC has all the safety and performance features of the renowned trail and enduro specific Tectal Race SPIN, and provides added security thanks to the inclusion of a digital NFC Medical ID Chip. With a RECCO reflector included, it’s easier for mountain rescuers to find you. The separate NFC chip can then be easily read, by rescue teams or other riders, simply by holding an NFC-enabled smartphone over the helmet to instantly give rescuers the information they need at the scene, and support them in making the best judgments for treatment in the vital “Golden Hour” immediately after an accident when the correct treatment is essential. The Ventral Air SPIN NFC, which features the same high-performance ventilation and extreme lightweight as the Ventral Air SPIN, also integrates an NFC chip and is ideally suited to a multitude of riding styles, adventure, gravel and road.
Integrating the Near Field Communication (NFC) chip is unique in a cycling helmet and allows the helmet to talk for you and protect you even after an accident as the NFC chip holds your chosen details and medical profile. NFC is a wireless data transfer technology that POC has partnered with the Swedish company, MY ICE INFO AB, to integrate into the Tectal Race SPIN NFC and Ventral Air SPIN NFC helmets. The chip can be uploaded and deleted continuously, requires no battery, or cloud service is virtually weightless and is embedded between the liner and shell to ensure security and readability. It's a world-first for safety and innovation, plus as a now recognized standard from the International alpine rescue association (ICAR), it has a flourishing network and community.
