VDP Body Armor Line / Back protector

VDP Body Armor Line

EUROBIKE AWARD 2008

VDP Body Armor Line

EUROBIKE AWARD 2008

To improve the degree of protection for bicycle body armor, POC has developed the dual density VPD-line. VPD stands for Visco Elastic Polymer Dough. The line includes the Spine Tee, the Spine Vest (both with integrated back protectors) and the Hip Shorts.
VPD is a polymer compound that progressively adapts itself to the force of impact and exceeds the required CE-values by 50%.
All products including a back protector are certified according to the CE 1621-2 motorcycle standard.
