The POC Sports Receptor Backcountry MIPS Helmet is a snow helmet for skiing and snowboarding the untapped backcountry. If you haven't heard of MIPS before, it stands for Multi-Directional Impact Protection System. It is there to reduce rotational forces in the brain in an oblique impact. Science-y, I know, but basically if you take a fall it'll help if you hit head-first at an angle. This bucket also features double shells, a Multi-impact EPP liner and an integrated RECCO® reflector. Load up on the safety, while the full ventilation still keeps you comfortable. Your brain is important.

Thanks for reaching out to us! Ya'll making me dig DEEP for the hardcore data today!!! So while it looks like POC has partnered with Beats by Dre, this helmet will still be audio compatible with after-market audio systems. Hope this helps you out!
