POC Auric Cut Helmet review. OnTheSnow reviewed this helmet as part of its 2016/2017 Helmet Buyers' Guide.


Favorite Features: We loved the seven different colorway options and the variety of ventilation ports. The multi-impact EPP liner and ABS shell provide excellent protection and peace of mind. For the price point, the Auric Cut is a stylish option for the resort skier.


Room for Improvement: The two tabs used to open and close the goggle vents are small and flimsy, making it difficult to adjust with gloves on. The top vent is not much better, and feels as if it needs pliers to open and close.

Fit: The Auric Cut fits true to size and molds nicely around the cranium. The ear pads are very comfortable, however, the size adjustment on the back is difficult to manipulate.


Manufacturer Description: Based on the Auric helmet, developed for park and pipe riding, the Auric Cut has been adapted to provide a versatile helmet for any free skier, on or off piste. The multi-impact EPP liner combined with a tough ABS shell provides excellent protection in a durable construction.
The adjustment system provides a snug fit and the ventilation is easily adjusted from the outside to close off airflow in cold conditions or open it for strenuous hikes or milder days. The interior has been developed to provide high levels of adjustable comfort and the removable goggle clip provides a safe attachment for those who prefer wearing the goggle on the outside of the helmet.
