POC Joint VPD 2.0 Knee Guards

POC Joint VPD 2.0 Knee Guards are top-of -the line knee pads. In fact, while the POC Joint VPD Knee Guard is designed for activities like snowboarding, skiing, and cycling, POC has manufactured the Joint VPD Knee to meet the European safety standard for impact protection required of motorcycle clothing. That’s right, motorcycle clothing. POC is that serious about your on-slope and cycling safety. Shouldn't you be serious about it, too?

What is VPD?

VPD stands for Visco-elastic Polymer Dough. We could go into a long discussion about physical chemistry and the transformation of matter through space and time. However, let’s just say that VPD is the product of some very sophisticated science. VPD is one of the few compounds on the market that meets the European Union’s highest standard for protective motorcycle clothing (CE 1621). Why? Because VPD is soft and comfortable, yet upon impact, VPD stiffens to absorb an extreme amount of energy created by such an impact. Since it is this energy from impact that ultimately causes bodily injury, the more energy your kneepads shield from you, the less likely you are to suffer injury. Most kneepads are static. The POC Joint VPD Knee is progressive, meaning the harder the impact, the proportionately more energy from the impact POC’s Joint VPD Knee pads will absorb. Learn more about VPD on our Advanced Protective Materials page.

POC of Sweden

We can’t think of enough superlatives to describe the new line of ski, snowboard, and cycling body armor from POC of Sweden. POC marries superior technology with spare Scandinavian styling to produce what is arguably some of the most effective and attractive body armor 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.
