Certified to EN 1621-3 (chest) and EN 1621-2 (back), Level 1, the VPD System Tanktop is a highly capable protection system that also boasts incredible flexibility for comfort and easy movement when you're sending it down technical trails. Rather than encompass the protector into a jacket or vest, POC keeps it simple to enhance freedom of movement and airflow. The VPD material softens as it's warmed by your body heat, providing incredible flexibility but in the event that you take an impact it hardens to absorb the energy of the crash. Large ventilation channels front and rear let sweat escape and fresh air in, keeping your core temperature regulated. Flexible, lightweight chest and back protection for every trail ride.
POC's VPD (Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough) has a decade of knowledge and progression behind it and when you're pushing hard on your bike then it's almost inevitable you'll fall. VDP lets you get up, again and again, no matter how many times gravity gets the better of you. Allowing complete freedom of movement, VPD is flexible protection with a shock absorbing inner layer matched to an abrasion resistant outer.
