Product Info

POC Hip VPD 2.0 | Padded Shorts Bike

The POC Hip VPD 2.0 | Padded Shorts Bike, BMX and mountain bike padded shorts bring you VPD Generation 2.0 material that meets the highest level of certification from the CE 1621-2 motorcycle standard for maximum protection on the mountain. VPD padded shorts material covers your lower spinal region and diffuses the impact in case you get bucked out of the saddle.

Protection shorts with flexible VPD hip protection pads in the hips and tailbone and a chamois for extra padding in the crotchal region when you ride.

Padded shorts from POC with seat padding with Coolmax - you will figure out why. Tailbone VPD protector for the lowest spinal area - the Caudal region. Coolmax-covered seat padding wicks away moisture and dries quickly to keep you comfortable as you tear up the trail.

What is VPD?

VPD (Visco-elastic Polymer Dough) is a soft and comfortable material, yet upon an impact VPD stiffens to absorb the force of an impact. VPD is progressive, meaning the harder the impact, the proportionately more energy from the impact POC’s VPD will absorb. Also VPD meets the European Union’s highest standard for protective motorcycle clothing (CE 1621 Level 2-High Performance).

What's the difference between the Winter and the Summer POC VPD Padded Shorts?

The POC Hip VPD 2.0 BMX and mountain bike padded shorts and the POC Hip VPD Ski padded shorts have a lot in common with their VPD padded protection in the hips, thighs and tail bone, but the summer or BMX/MTB version of the PC Hip VPD padded shorts come with the added protection of a chamois to protect against seat wear and tear and give the added padding and comfort when sitting for long periods of time. The summer version of the Hip VPD padded shorts from POC are designed to withstand the constant pressure and movement undergone while pedaling for long distances and at constant rates, from slow to intense movements while pedaling.

3 of 5 Not comfortable April 11, 2010
Reviewer: Brett from Sanford, NC United States  
Protection pads are good but the comfort level could be improved.  Maybe it is the material used.
