POC Hip VPD 2.0 Shorts POC Hip VPD 2.0 Shorts
POC VPD (Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough) makes wearing body armor feel like not wearing body armor, until you crash. Hip VPD 2. 0 shorts are actually liner shorts that you can wear under baggies, boardshorts, walkshorts, or even jeans to provide hardshell protection without the bulk or uncomfortable feel of hardshell armor. VPD is soft, low profile, and flexible until something hits it. Then it becomes a hard layer of protection instantly. That means the POC Hip VPD shorts are soft and flexible until impact, so they're completely comfortable all day. The stretchy, ventilated mesh that forms the main body of the shorts provides cooling airflow throughout, to keep you from burning up all day while you ride. VPD panels in the hip and tailbone regions protect the most common impact zones. POC even built a chamois into the Hip VPD shorts to ensure all-day pedaling comfort.

POC Joint VPD 2.0 DH Elbow Guard POC Joint VPD 2.0 DH Elbow Guard
Trying to double up that jump that was never meant to be doubled comes with some risk, but that's why POC created the Joint VPD 2. 0 DH Elbow Guard. It's neither a true hard shell nor a true soft shell, but that's why the Joint VPD is special--it's made of a soft and flexible foam that instantly hardens on impact, so it's comfortable to wear and can save your bacon when you find more knuckle than tranny. In the case of the VPD 2. 0, POC has also layered a thin hard shell over the foam for extra protection on the gnarliest trails. The body of the guard is made from stretchy Kevlar-reinforced fabric for bombproof abrasion resistance, and POC integrated a plethora of vents to prevent excessive sweatiness on hot summer lift laps. A combo of elastic and hook-and-loop straps keep the VPD 2. 0 locked down, too, even if you find yourself flying rubber-side up just a little unexpectedly.

POC Joint VPD 2.0 DH Knee Guards POC Joint VPD 2.0 DH Knee Guards
Sure, you have two knees, but that doesn't really mean you have one to spare. They only really work as a pair, so strapping up the POC Joint VPD 2. 0 DH Knee Guards before you head out to ride lifts and get rowdy is obviously a good idea. Not to be confused with the regular VPD 2. 0, the DH version uses a hard shell over the knee cap to add extra impact and abrasion protection so you can bail, do a hair-band powerslide through some rocks, and keep on riding. There's a layer of VPD padding around the knee, too, which is soft and flexible but hardens upon impact to cover your soft knee bits without feeling like a suit of armor. All of this burliness is held in place by a stretchy and breathable neoprene sleeve and hook-and-loop strap, so you can ride without stopping to adjust your pads after every rugged high-speed section.

POC Joint VPD 2.0 DH Long Knee Guards POC Joint VPD 2.0 DH Long Knee Guards
Tough isn't a strong enough word to describe the bombproof POC Joint VPD 2. 0 DH Long Knee Guards. Mega-tough, maybe, or nigh-indestructible--definitely something that emphasizes the Joint 2. 0's ability to take big hits. These guards have a lot in common with the standard Joint VPD 2. 0, like the breathable neoprene sleeve, secure hook-and-loop strap, and bombproof plastic 'cap covering, but they deliver an extra dose of protection that comes in handy while tumbling halfway down a rowdy DH line. The extra length means they're not ideal for pedaling, but if you're feeling more sendy than conservative, you and your legs will appreciate the extra coverage in a big way.

POC Joint VPD 2.0 Elbow Guard POC Joint VPD 2.0 Elbow Guard
It used to be that if you wanted real protection from boulders and trees, you were stuck with plastic-cap armor that you strapped onto your limbs with rough hook-and-loop straps. Needless to say, it wasn't the easiest to ride in, and it would chafe like crazy. Those times are long gone, thankfully, and the latest generation of armor, like the POC Joint VPD 2. 0 Elbow Guard, has arrived. VPD is a soft-until-you-hit-it armor that's flexible and easy to ride while wearing, but it hardens on impact to protect your bones from injury. And, in place of those horrible straps of old is a spandex sleeve that slides right up your arm, keeping the armor in place, wicking moisture, and not causing injury to your skin. You'll still find top and bottom straps, but they're reinforcements, instead of primary retention.

POC Joint VPD 2.0 Knee Guard POC Joint VPD 2.0 Knee Guard
Ripping down flowing singletrack and blistering downhill courses is stupidly fun, but it doesn't come without consequences when you bail off your bike or fall at high speeds. Engineered to soften the blow from crashes, the POC Joint VPD 2. 0 Knee Guard protects your knees from impact when you're trail riding and slaying downhill courses. The 3D-molded VPD foam stays pliable when you're riding, stiffening upon impact to absorb the punishment of crashes and trail mishaps. Its perforated design keeps you cool when you're riding, helping to prevent sweat build-up on hot summer rides. Plus, you'll find an elasticized hook-and-loop strap for a secure, adjustable fit. Note that these pads are slim enough to wear under your favorite trail shorts and riding pants.

POC Spine VPD 2.0 Vest POC Spine VPD 2.0 Vest
Body armor varies in style and intensity-level for every adventure sport -- each one offering protection specific for a single activity. Often, the intensity overshadows the practicality, and to make matters worse, it's only usable for a singular activity one season out of the year. If your idea of fun is considered terrifying by normal folk, put the POC Spine VPD 2. 0 Vest around your torso for multi-season protection. Enjoy a full freedom of movement while hucking off cliffs into powdery landings, or when speeding around obstacles at the terrain park. The Spine VPD Vest differs from other body armor with its visco-elastic polymer-dough (VPD) plate that conforms to the wearer's back. VPD molds to your body, and protects you by stiffening when force is applied to it. The sudden rigidity ultimately aids in absorbing the energy of a fall, and accordingly, you'll receive less substantial injuires. The plate uses high-density VPD down the center of the spine, as to protect the point most susceptible to injury. Low-density VPD encompasses this area, adding protection to your kidneys and shoulder blades, with it eventually thinning out on the sides to maximize movement. Ventilation holes run along the back plate for maximum air circulation throughout the vest. And to keep you clean, POC has given the Spine 2. 0 an odor-fighting polygiene treatment. For after-use cleaning, the plate is removable, and the vest is also machine washable. The material used for construction stretches to accommodate base layers, and it has a full length zipper to make getting in and out a breeze. Elastic gripper on the hem of the waist keeps the vest from creeping up, and a removable waistband allows you to dial in the fit. The POC Spine VPD 2. 0 Vest is FIS approved for skiing and is only available in the color Black. It comes in sizes Small, Medium, and Large. For women's specific sizing and construction, check out the Spine VPD 2. 0 Women's Vest.
