Padding without the penalty.
With the progression of trail bikes comes the evolution of riding, which often means we're railing faster into corners, boosting over rollers, and popping down the occasional rock garden with some serious speed. Consequently, this also means that when we go down, we go down a bit harder. But that doesn't mean we want to load up with bulky DH level pads when most of the day will be spent pedaling, which is why POC brings us a knee pad that's evolved along with our riding, the VPD Air Leg.
This light and airy pad offers just a touch of protection, while loading you up with super breathable and compressive materials that shield from scrapes, and help blood circulation to reduce fatigue. They're preshaped to boost flexibility and sit comfortably when you're pedaling, while silicone strips at the top and bottom lock them in place, even when you're booking it into loose root latticed old growth. On long climbs and punchy switchbacks you'll be happy that they are crafted from perforated material that is designed to increase airflow while pulling away moisture to keep you dry and cool inside.

- Q & A
Knee pads for people who hate knee pads.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Medium.
I've always hated wearing knee pads. The bulk, the restriction, the heat. these solve all of those problems. They're very light, so they breathe easily, there is minimal padding in the front, so they don't restrict pedaling, and with the minimal padding, they're very slim fitting. they work great for people who hate wearing knee pads.
Excellent fit, relatively light protecti
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size

fit is excellent. I can fit in a small knee warmer, and ordered a Medium VPD air. so maybe runs slightly small? fit is excellent, but have no idea what they're thinking with their sizing chart. the numbers were so far off it's unusable.
materials are excellent. padding is nice, but could be slightly thicker and definitely wider around the knee.
other than that, excelllent.
