When it comes to complementing your body armor collection, the POC Joint VPD elbow guard is definitely worth considering. In the old days when you wanted good protection, you could only choose from plastic-cap armor that you needed to strap on your arms with rough straps. Because they would often irritate like crazy they weren’t that comfortable and easy to ride with. For their latest generation of elbow guards the team at POC designed a flexible and easy to wear elbow guard that remains soft until you hit an obstacle. On impact the special pads will harden to protect your bones from injury. Instead of those horrible straps they used a spandex sleeve that simply slides rich up your arm. This allows the armor to stay in place, while keeping out moisture to avoid you skin to get irritated. The elbow guards does have top and bottom straps but these are fitted for reinforcements. Overall the POC Joint VPD Elbow Guard are comfortable, lightweight will offering all-round elbow protection.
