Light in weight and well ventilated, the POC Spine VPD Air Back Protector offers excellent protection, meeting CE EN 1621-2 Level 1 standard. This combination ensures you can move easily on your bike while boosting protection in the event of a crash.
If you're tackling more technical mountain bike trails, with more challenging terrain testing your skills, the Spine VPD Air Back Protector will offer back protection should the trail get the better of you. The Level 1 protection standard gives you assurance it has been tested and certified to a recognised standard. In use, this exacting level of protection allows no more than 18 kN of force to be transmitted in the event of an impact.
When you're riding you don't want too many distractions and this is certainly the case with your body armour. In order to maintain comfort, the Spine VPD Air protector is encased in a 3D mesh, giving a boost to both ventilation and sweat-management.
Adjustability is also excellent. The shoulder straps are highly adjustable and feature a sternum strap to keep the protector secure. The waistband is also adjustable up and down to dial in the fit. And if you feel it's not necessary, the waistband is also removable.
POC is a Swedish company, built on a strong mission; to do everything we can to possibly save lives and to reduce consequences of accidents, for gravity sports athletes, by developing and renewing what personal protection is all about. POC has in many ways already set a new standard when it comes to technical solutions, construction, material combinations and engineering, with patented solutions, to increase the degree of protection. POC works in a cross scientific way, from the office at Nacka gatan 4, in Stockholm. The organization involves competences from different fields, such as engineers, material specialists, industrial and graphic designers, neurologists and back specialists. Stockholm is an important centre for some of Europe’s leading research and development experts in the areas of safety, medicine, health care, advanced product development and testing. It's our mission to do everything we can to develop protective gear that can save lives and reduce the severity of injuries. All our products have been tested by top world gravity sport athletes and then further refined to perfection. Our athlete friends love to go flat out but without suffering cuts, bruises and headaches, or in the worst cases, risking back or brain damage as a result of crashes that sadly happens to even the best athletes. The end result is a line of lightweight, high performance gear that offers the ultimate protection against injury thanks to superior impact absorption and penetration resistance. When developing a product at POC, we do it in the spirit of doing the best. We never compromise in choosing materials or construction, and we never compromise safety, quality or performance.
