A flexible chest plate and highly ventilated back protector combine to create the POC VPD System Tanktop. Whatever trail riding you enjoy, from enduro to downhill to laps of the park, this has you covered.
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.
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.
