Eurobike/IF Award for the Spine VPD Body Armor Line
POC is proud to announce that the Spine VPD Body Armor line, has been awarded, the Eurobike/IF Award. It is especially satisfying to receive this important award, simultanously together with POCs first launch of POCs bike line of Helmets & Armor, Wheels.
It was evident to us, entering the summer season, to go with bike. And especially the action related disciplines such as downhill, freeride, park and BMX, where protection beyond a helmet is crucial.
The POC Spine VPD Armor line, has evolved from a new Polymer compound and technology: Visco Elastic Polymer Dough©. The material which is highly shock absorbing, works progressively. It is extremely ergonomic, soft and adaptive when worn, just like dough, while it stiffens when stressed. The protective properties are amazing and exceeds the required CE-standards by more than 50% and therefore reach the highest safety standard CE 1621-2 motorcycle standard.
"It's truly rewarding being acknowledged for the immense work that has been invested by the POC team, at this early point of our journey, entering the bike scene".
Says Stefan Ytterborn CEO POC
