This POC Spine VPD Vest Armour is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
The POC Spine VPD Vest Armour has high density VPD in the spine to offer maximum protection. VPD hardens on impact and melds to your body shape - you get light weight and freedom of movement that becomes extremely tough when needed.
At higher speeds and on more extreme trails having protection for your back is a wise move. POC use the unique VPD material in this vest so you get full flexibility and freedom of movement allowing you to concentrate on picking your fastest lines. However, in the event of a miscalculation and you take a heavy fall the VPD material hardens on impact providing full protection to your spinal area.
Visco-Elastic Polymer DoughVPD is used throughout POC's body armour range to offer extreme impact absorption allowing a lightweight and comfortable approach to cycling protection. VPD's flexible nature means that it will shape to your body, creating an unparalleled fit that is truly customised. The material hardens during impact, so the flexibility doesn't come at the cost of protection.
VPD is able to maintain a high absorption level where other protection garments may see effectiveness drop after every knock. This means that POC's body armour gives you long lasting effectiveness for consistent protection so it doesn't let you down when you need it most.
Delivering anatomical and ergonomical fit means a fantastic level of comfort that results in a huge amount of free movement that more rigid materials can't offer. VPD also offers great ventilation to keep you cool and comfortable when you're riding hard.
Cycling Body armour is a wise investment for both downhill and trials riding where falls and impacts into immovable objects are always a possibility. Body armour is light, unrestrictive and inexpensive when compared to the alternatives of not wearing it. Some riders even claim that Body armour can increase your confidence levels, which may make you ride faster. Wiggle stocks a large range of body armour which can cover the knees and shin, elbows, shoulders and chest. A lot of manufacturers, such as Dainese, Sixsixone and Thor produce all-in-one armoured jackets to cover the entire upper body for extreme descents. The most common advice with body armour is to buy it 'before' you 'need' it, rather than 'after' you 'needed' it.
POC is a Swedish company, built on a strong mission; to do everything we can to possibly save lives and to reduce consequences of accidents, for gravity sports athletes, by developing and renewing what personal protection is all about. POC has in many ways already set a new standard when it comes to technical solutions, construction, material combinations and engineering, with patented solutions, to increase the degree of protection. POC works in a cross scientific way, from the office at Nacka gatan 4, in Stockholm. The organization involves competences from different fields, such as engineers, material specialists, industrial and graphic designers, neurologists and back specialists. Stockholm is an important centre for some of Europe’s leading research and development experts in the areas of safety, medicine, health care, advanced product development and testing. It´s our mission to do everything we can to develop protective gear that can save lives and reduce the severity of injuries. All our products have been tested by top world gravity sport athletes and then further refined to perfection. Our athlete friends love to go flat out but without suffering cuts, bruises and headaches, or in the worst cases, risking back or brain damage as a result of crashes that sadly happens to even the best athletes. The end result is a line of lightweight, high performance gear that offers the ultimate protection against injury thanks to superior impact absorption and penetration resistance. When developing a product at POC, we do it in the spirit of doing the best. We never compromise in choosing materials or construction, and we never compromise safety, quality or performance.
