POC’s new Joint VDP System guards feature what they call a super fabric at the most common point of impact.
Inside the pad they use their own flexible VPD material which hardens on impact. The pads come in both knee and elbow versions and should be available March 1st 2017. We slipped a pair on and found them to be incredibly comfortable, almost like wearing a knee warmer but with quite a bit of protection.
