VPD…What is that?
VPD stands for Visco-elastic Polymer Dough. We could go into a long discussion about physical chemistry and the transformation of matter through space and time. However, let’s just say that VPD is the product of some very sophisticated science. VPD is one of the few compounds on the market that meets the European Union’s highest standard for protective motorcycle clothing (CE 1621 Level 2-High Performance). Why? Because VPD is soft and comfortable, yet upon impact, VPD stiffens to absorb an extreme amount of energy created by such an impact. Since it is this energy from impact that ultimately causes bodily injury, the more energy your spine guard shields from you, the less likely you are to suffer injury. Most spine protection devices are static. The POC VPD Spine Protector is progressive, meaning the harder the impact, the proportionately more energy from the impact POC’s VPD Spine Protector will absorb. Think of it as your loving mother and personal bodyguard rolled into one.
