EUROBIKE AWARD

EUROBIKE AWARD

POCs Visco Elastic Polymer Dough, a polymer with unique qualities, managing the counter aspects of resisting violence, on the other hand being highly conformable and ergonomic.
Billions of tiny air cells inside the moulded polymer makes it soft, spongy and comfortable to wear, when not stressed by outside forces. When outside energy is applied, like in a crash, the air inside the cells doesnŽt have the time to evacuate, and the material becomes rock hard, absorbing energy extremely well.
Besides the anatomical improvements the VPD 2.0 material itself has been improved for better energy absorption and durability.
