The VPD System Chest forms part of our modular protection for allyear, multisport use.
When combined with the VPD System Back, this protector provides MTB specific protection that inspires confidence on the trails. With unparalleled freedom of movement thanks to a clever design that means the protection does not require a vest or jacket, the VPD System Chest delivers exceptional versatility and lightweight protection certified to European standard EN16213, level 1.
The lightweight, minimalist design also provides reliable ventilation. Constructed from VPD, the protective material is soft warms to and shapes with the body for a personalized fit, yet hardens on impact for reliable protection.
In order to function, this chest module must be combined with the VPD System Back to create the VPD System Torso.
VPD (VISCO-ELASTIC POLYMER DOUGH)
POC´s works together with specialists on spinal injuries, riders of all kinds and experts in material and construction have resulted in body armor that will give you both a high level of comfort and safety.
The VPD (Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough) range offers extreme impact absorption, which has given POC a completely new approach to developing body armor. VPD is highly impact absorbent, comfortable and adapts to create an individual fit and due to its high level of protection and the ability to transition from soft to hard during impact, we don’t have to choose between safety and flexibility.
Many back protectors are lightweight, but may not be optimal for shock absorption. Some can take one impact with good shock absorption, but a second impact to the protector will transfer a much higher amount of energy to the user, the third an even greater amount and so on. VPD material retains the same high absorption level, and that is an important property for POC since they believe that a protector will have several impacts during one fall, and during its lifetime.
POC does everything they can to make sure they give you the highest level of protection, but they also want their armor to be comfortable. Anatomically and ergonomically it should follow the shape of your body, be supple and give you complete freedom of movement. Another major advantage of the POC body armor is the highly efficient ventilation technology.
