POC Joint VPD Knee Guards

Review top rated, POC Joint VPD Knee Guards. POC offers a panoply of armor to suit your hard-riding needs. And the POC Joint VPD Knee Pad is but one critical component. It's a superior choice for your gear bag because it has VPD visco-elastic polymer dough for protection, in comparison to many other "soft armor" designs on the market that simply rely on foam padding. VPD is modified polyurethane foam that is soft and pliable, so it moves easily and naturally with your joints. But in the instant of an impact, it works some molecular magic, stiffening and absorbing the impact energy and saving your body from the brunt of the blow.

SEPP: Super Expanded Polypropylene
EPP: Expanded Polypropylene
EPS: Expanded Polystyrene
The difference between the materials is that SEPP and EPP, unlike EPS do not deform permanently on impact and is therefore suitable to absorb repetitive shocks. Meaning, essentially that an EPS liner will break, distributing the force from the impact throughout the helmet. The EPP and SEPP are similar in that they will also break when the maximum force of impact occurs, but SEPP and EPP have higher stress limits when it comes to breakage and flex.

POC Joint VPD Knee Guards / Bottom Line:

Great light weight, stylish and comfortable protection. VPD is a soft and comfortable material but upon impact it stiffens to absorb the impact. This material is designed to absorb hard impacts and proportionately distribute the force of the impact throughout the padded areas. These are super soft and comfortable knee pads. The VPD material makes them so un-bulky, you hardly notice they are under your ski or snowboard pants. They have the main protection covering the bulk of the knee area plus padding on the outsides as well.
