VPD…What is that?
VPD (Visco-elastic Polymer Dough) is a advanced composite material that is remarkably flexible and pliable but stiffens instantly upon impact. VPD is highly dampening and can absorb an extreme amount of the energy from an impact. In fact, VPD is one of the few compounds on the market that meets the European Union’s highest standard for protective motorcycle clothing (CE 1621). One of the unique functions of VPD is progressive dampening, which means that the material adapts itself to the force of the impact. The softness and pliability of the material allows it to mold to the contours of your body. VPD armor and pads are designed to be worn close to the body—the VPD is most flexible and pliable when it is warm. For this reason, POC recommends that you do not expose it to prolonged cold conditions, such as leaving it in a cold car or wearing it outside ski or snowboard clothes.

POC of Sweden: Gorgeous Design, Superior Protection
We can’t think of enough superlatives to describe the POC line of helmets and body armor. POC combines sophisticated engineering with spare Scandinavian styling to produce what are arguably some of the best-looking, high-tech protective gear on the planet. The company has won numerous international design awards. In terms of safety, one award in particular stands out. Volvo, possibly the most safety-conscious company in the world, awarded POC its Grand Prize in the category of Active Safety as part of their prestigious annual Volvo ISPO Sports Design Award competition. POC now has a partnership with Polygiene AB to include Polygiene odor control wipes in POC ski helmets, bike helmets, and body armor.
