Description

Spine VPD Air Tee

Add some serious protection to your day on the trails without limiting your movement or comfort with the POC Spine VPD Air Tee. Highly versatile and extremely flexible, this elbow and back protection package is made with VPD technology and certified to international standards to help cushion the landing when getting tossed over the handlebars. And unlike other back protectors, the Spine VPD Air features a ventilation system that's constructed within each layer to help wick sweat from your skin while allowing cool air to circulate throughout, so you can pedal just as hard as you would without it. The flexible nature of this tee maximizes your range of motion to offer a fit that doesn't even feel like you're wearing any pads, while the abrasion-resistant fabric holds up against close encounters with rock and dirt to ensure it makes it through more than one season.

  • Breathable, flexible, and protective shirt for hard riding
  • Back and elbow protectors use VPD tech for mobility on trail
  • Ventilation system helps wick moisture and enhance air flow
  • Regular fit further enhances your mobility
  • Front zip closure makes for an easy on and off

It's great for what it is. The removable back pad is probably the lightest that POC offers ("Air" ~350g, good bit thinner than the "Air+" ~550g in the "Air+ Tee") and it's the best ventilated. Hardly notice that it's there. The elbow pads use the same insides as poc air elbows but they are even more comfortable, don't even know they are there. The whole thing fits great and the mesh fabric is super breathable. There are velcro grippers on the sleeves to keep them in place. And there are huge bike-jersey-style pockets on the outside. Hard to complain about anything as insurance for XC riding and light DH. Obviously not a bad idea to have more for DH, there isn't anything for shoulders and chest here. I guess that's where the Air + Tee picks, though you'd probably want air elbows separately with that one.
