Flexible Impact Protection
The VPD Air Knee Pads have been engineered for those of you who want a pad that offers excellent knee protection while also giving enhanced flexibility, ventilation and freedom of movement for mountain biking. You can then concentrate on picking the best lines, not on uncomfortable pads.
If you do take an unfortunate slam, you'll appreciate the shock-absorbing qualities of the VPD armour found within the Air pads. It's soft and flexible when you're pedalling but hardens upon impact, soaking up impact forces in order to keep your knees safe. Jump back on and keep pushing your limits. The elastic strap and neoprene anti-slip material ensure a comfortable fit, even in rough riding conditions, helping prevent slippage as you ride.
Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough
VPD allows a lightweight and comfortable approach to cycling protection. VPD's flexible nature means that it will shape to your body, creating an unparalleled fit that is truly customised. The material hardens during impact, so the flexibility doesn't come at the cost of protection. VPD is able to maintain a high absorption level where other protective garments may see effectiveness drop after every knock.
Delivering an anatomical and ergonomic fit means a fantastic level of comfort that results in a huge amount of free movement that more rigid materials can't offer.
