The Joint knee, ankle and elbow protection looks particularly impressive. Made of a similar material to the D30 used in SixSixOne’s Evo pads, the armour is soft and malleable until there is an impact, when it instantly hardens.
POC also make more traditional-looking ‘hard shell’ armour, but with some unique touches. For example, their Bone VPD leg armour hinges above rather than below the knee. This is said to improve both comfort and protection.
We’re going to put them through some thorough testing, and we’ll let you know how they fare. Full details will be in MBUK soon.
