Taking a bang on the knee is way too easy trail riding, so it’s definitely a good idea to wear some strong body armor. And with the POC VPD System Lite Knee Guards you don’t feel like your limb protectors are keeping you from moving properly or enjoying your ride. Made using POC’s amazing VPD technology, the knee guards use a material that can feel soft and supple while providing excellent defense against the worst results of the inevitable crashes. The 3D molded VPD protection offers a European level 1 rating protection that will stand up to the usual type of trail riding wipe-outs. Since the outer fabric has been heavily reinforced, it will take multiple impacts without ripping or sustaining any damage. The interior material is made from a breathable mesh that works in unison with the ventilation openings in the VPD material to prevent your knee and leg from overheating. The sleeve construction ensures the guards won’t slip down your leg even when rumbling through the roughest rock gardens.
