Description

The best of both worlds.

POC designed the Joint VPD 2.0 DH Elbow Guard to withstand just about any crash. The DH version uses the same incredible VPD material as the standard elbow pad, but adds a flexible hard shell cap to really crank up the protection level. The DH Elbow Guard provides all the safety of a big, burly hard shell pad, but VPD makes it lighter and more comfortable. This will probably be the first elbow pad that you won't hate wearing.

Generally speaking, there are two types of body armor: soft, flexible armor that's designed to be comfortable and hard-shell armor that's designed to absorb huge impacts. As logic would dictate, the soft stuff doesn't protect as well and the hard stuff isn't as comfortable. Well, now there's a third kind of armor–POC VPD. As far as we can tell, it's magic. VPD is a soft, flexible foam material that conforms to the contours of your body. However, in the event of an impact, it hardens instantly to provide the protection of a hard shell. It truly is the best of both worlds. Not only that, but VPD is a true multi-impact armor, so the protection level during your 20th crash is the same as it was during your 1st. This is especially important because a fall can often involve several impacts. You don't want your protection level to drop off over the course of a fall, because that last hit might be the hardest.

VPD is lightweight, soft, and flexible, so it's some of the most comfortable armor that we've tried. Another reason that VPD is so comfortable is efficient airflow. POC riddles its VPD material with vents so air flows freely in and out to keep your skin dry and cool, so you don't roast in the heat of the summer and get that nasty, clammy feeling under your pads. The main body of the elbow guard is abrasion-resistant Kevlar-reinforced stretch fabric. POC also uses a static Crash Retention Strap to keep the guard from slipping out of place. At the elbow itself, POC covers the VPD with a flexible hard shell cap to make the Joint VPD 2.0 DH Elbow Guard tough enough to handle the most brutal digger.

The POC Joint VPD 2.0 DH Elbow Guard comes in Black and is available in Small, Medium, and Large.
