Ten or fifteen years ago, wearing pads meant having to deal with bulky, movement restricting, and inhumane blocks of foam. Fortunately, POC has been revolutionizing protection for the action sports we love. With the POC Joint VPD Knee Guards you can ride your metal steed without having to worry about scrapes and bruises if you take a spill. The stretchy VPD compound absorbs impacts, while elastic straps and anti slip interior neoprene keep these Knee Guards right where you want 'em. Mountain bikers everywhere agree that once you go with the POC Joint VPD Knee Guards, you'll never go back.
