Alright but...

Having owned the VPD 2 knee pads but wanting something lighter and cooler I opted for these. I am a little disappointed at the fit. The size is truer that the small fit vpd2 however they are not simply a lighter version. The design is totally different. They are much shorter which is a shame as this affects the fit, I found the patella coverage floats above the knee cap when riding or extending the joint and they seems to move vertically due to a lack of coverage on the proximal shin area. There is also a little bunching of the material in the popliteal fossa (back of knee). if POC had just made a thinner version of VPD 2 these would be 5/5.

Pod knee pads

Excellent , they are very light and the best thing is they don't rub so you don't get sore from wearing them

Protective Guide

What is protective equipment?

Protective equipment includes knee pads, elbow pads, shin guard, wrist guards and back protection – any semi-rigid guards you might wear for risky riding.

Who needs protective equipment?

Protective equipment is often favoured by off-road riders, such as mountain bikers tackling riskier activities such as downhilling. Also, stunt riders such as BMXers or jump bike riders might also need them.

What are the choices?

You can choose padding for your arms, legs and back. Some protective gear is made from more flexible material that only hardens on impact – clever stuff.

What should I buy with it?

Don’t forget your head – a full face helmet offers you the best protection for more adventurous cycling activities.

Anything else?

Think about how your padding will fit with the rest of your cycling clothing. Does it go under or over your clothes and will it be compatible with the rest of your cycling wardrobe?
