The POC Joint VPD 2.0 Knee Pads are a true multi-purpose piece of body protection, they are light and cool enough for an all-day trail ride yet still offer state of the art shock absorption for hardcore DH riding! The target was to solve the constant trade-off between freedom of movement and real protective properties. Focus has been to optimise both fit and coverage at the same time.

These knee pads offer great protection, and they're so comfortable you’ll forget that you’re wearing them! The comfortable and multi-purpose VPD 2.0 Knee provides extremely high shock absorption and freedom of movement. The design of the sleeve and the 3D molding of the VPD keep them from moving downwards while riding. With a flexible, comfortable fit as well as sturdy polypropylene coverage your joints are guarded against any knocks along the way, without making you feel restricted when you're in the cycling position.

POC Joint VPD 2.0 Knee Guard Features

  • 3D molded VPD 2.0 knee protector, perforated for air flow
  • Resistant aramid reinforced stretch fabric sleeve
  • The construction and shape are designed to secure position
  • Optional elastic strap rests on calf muscle to give extra firm and secure fit
  • Certified CE 1621-1

POC VPD 2.0 Range

The new VPD 2.0 range offers extreme shock absorption properties, which gives us a completely new alternative in the traditional trade-off situation between flexibility and real protection. Due to the ability of transition from soft to hard when needed and the extreme shock absorption properties, you no longer have to choose between freedom of movement and proper protection.

VPD 2.0 offers a better flexibility in cold temperatures and has an increased tear resistance. To further improve anti penetration properties, the back protector has a durable thermoplastic polymer sheet integrated for extra protection at the spinal area. The slightly revised material compound is still highly dampening, soft, comfortable and adapts to create an individual fit. When exposed to impact, the material stiffens and has an extreme absorption of energy.

POC: About the brand

POC is represented across helmets, body armor, gloves, clothing and sunglasses. We were drawn to the brand by its clean, minimal design and bright colours; we believe it’s a breath of fresh air to the market. The product itself is just as impressive as the aesthetic. POC works with experts from different fields, such as engineers, material specialists, industrial and graphic designers, neurologists and back specialists. They never compromise in choosing materials or construction and the end result is a line of lightweight, high performance gear that offers the ultimate protection against injury.

    POC Joint VPD 2.0 Knee Guard Black ,  On

    If you are looking for some knee pads it is normally a case of comfortable, cheap or protective, pick two! Now a mandatory requirement at a lot of enduro races it is important to get a pad that fits well and offers sufficient protection while still being able to sprint. We have been testing the POC VPD 2.0 for the last 12 months to see how they shape up to a season of abuse and racing. We have been testing the new VPD 2.0 knee pads and have subjected them to some tough times in the Megavalanche, SuperEnduro racing, Alpine Bike parks and over 1500’s hours on long hot all-mountain rides.

    If we look at the tech first, these pads feature Kevlar reinforced stretch fabric, a stretchy back panel to aid comfort and ventilation and the new VPD 2.0 padding. POC claim that the VPD – Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough, a modified soft Polyurethane foam, is comfortable and adapts to create an individual fit. The clever part being when exposed to impact the material stiffens and has extreme energy absorption properties. In a nutshell the padding material is initially soft and conforming and will stiffen up on impact. My scientific testing, involving whacking it with a spanner does seem to prove that that the VPD hardens up with impact and they certainly feel quite malleable when bending the pads. Advertised as the true multi-purpose knee pad, supposed to be light and cool enough for all day trail riding but still offering state of the art shock absorption for hard core DH riding, the pad is well targeted at the enduro racer.

    Since I damaged my knee skiing, knee pads are now as important to me as a decent helmet, and I never low-ride my pads unless I am on a super smooth road climb. So every day I am out guiding I am in my knee pads, so they HAVE to be comfortable! I have to say that in the last 12 months and over 1500 hours I have been riding in these pads they have been excellent. I have heard many a scare story about the POC stitching being a weakness, but aside from a small amount of fraying here and there they are still totally sound. The material they are made out of seems extremely hard wearing, taking a few hits from my DMR vaults without ripping, my old pair of 661 Kyle Straits looked shredded after only 2 months, whereas these pads still look pretty new. The pads have been abused too, stored in the bottom of a kit bag wet, shoved through the washing machine and even survived the dog running around with them. Comfort wise, they are top notch, the anatomical shape really works and they never slip up or down. I never suffered from any rubbing or pinching and you forget they are on after a few minutes. The Polygene coating works well too, they do not smell despite infrequent washing.

    They have taken some big hits and each time it was a quick dust off, and back on the bike. I feel pretty confident that these pads will offer all the protection you could expect of a soft pad! I can happily wear these for an 8 hour day without the burning desire to pull them down at every opportunity. Ventilation is OK; my knees still get a bit warm on a 30 + degree Italian day but that is similar with most pads that offer the same level of coverage.

    I value my knees, and the biggest accolade I can give these excellent pads is that I did not buy a pair, I brought two and the matching VPD 2.0 elbow pads. If you are in the market for some new pads and want comfortable and protective, if the POCs fit, they are a truly excellent enduro pad, top marks and mighty good gear.
