Making sure medical staff know how to treat you in the event of a crash can be difficult, depending on how bad the situation is. Do your buddies know your blood type? Do you have specific allergies or medical conditions that the medical staff should be aware of? The POC Tectal Race SPIN NFC is a super smart helmet since it is equipped with an NFC Medical ID Chip. Using an NFC app on your smartphone, you can log in all your most important medical details that first responders can then easily access through their NFC-enabled smartphone. It’s a seriously clever and potentially lifesaving technology. Of course, POC has made sure to design the Tectal Race SPIN in a way that will hopefully mean medics won’t need to hover over you when you do go down. The inclusion of the SPIN, or Shearing Pad Inside, helps mitigate the blunt force impact your head could suffer in the case of a crash. By absorbing the force through dissipating the rotational energy of the impact, these special silicon pads help your brain from getting too knocked around inside your skull. The reinforced EPS linerand the unibody shell construction also do their part in ensuring the integrity of the helmet, and the real protection it can offer.
