The Joint VPD System Elbow is a highly flexible 2-ply elbow protector which conforms with international shock absorption standards. The elbow protector features a highly efficient ventilation system and an outer fabric which is made with high tenacity polyamide yarns for low friction and high abrasion resistance. VPD is the perfect material for mountain biking as it wraps around a riders body shape when warm which gives great freedom of movement on a bike. To protect riders during a fall the VPD technology then hardens on impact to help minimise injury.
- Extremely flexible and light VPD elbow pad
- EN 1621-1 certified shock absorption
- Ventilation system constructed within each layer to optimize moisture management and comfort
- Low friction polyamide construction high abrasion resistance
VPD (VISCO-ELASTIC POLYMER DOUGH)
Our work together with specialists on spinal injuries, riders of all kinds and experts in material and construction have resulted in body armor that will give you both a high level of comfort and safety.
The VPD (Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough) range offers extreme impact absorption, which has given us a completely new approach to developing body armor. VPD is highly impact absorbent, comfortable and adapts to create an individual fit and due to its high level of protection and the ability to transition from soft to hard during impact, we donít have to choose between safety and flexibility.
Many back protectors are lightweight, but may not be optimal for shock absorption. Some can take one impact with good shock absorption, but a second impact to the protector will transfer a much higher amount of energy to the user, the third an even greater amount and so on. VPD material retains the same high absorption level, and that is an important property for us since we believe that a protector will have several impacts during one fall, and during its lifetime.
We do everything we can to make sure we give you the highest level of protection, but we also want our armor to be comfortable. Anatomically and ergonomically it should follow the shape of your body, be supple and give you complete freedom of movement. Another major advantage of the POC body armor is the highly efficient ventilation technology.
Looking at the range we hope that you will find a product that suits your personal needs.
