The VPD Joint VPD 2.0 Knee is amultipurpose knee protector that offers a high level of protection and great freedom of movement. VPD adapts to the shape of the body, but when exposed to impact, the material stiffens and has extreme impact absorption properties.
Features:

3D molded VPD 2.0 knee protector
Perforated for heat and moisture control
Secure fit with kevlar reinforced stretch fabric
Optional elastic strap for enhanced protection and fit

These lightweight pads are for XC, Trail, All Mountain what ever box style of riding fits in!
Well at a whooping £65 they not the cheapest pads and not then most protected light weight pads on market.

Not impressed very thin protection round sides of knees, the thickness on kneecap is better but still not that thick about 5mm.

Did feel OK for the couple times I did wear round house & garden :oops: I didn't wear on a ride as I'm sending them back.

There a sticky rubber strip inside top of pad this should stop pads from slipping down also a velcro strap , behind knee is coved I like that as my old Fox open hole seem to be eating my flesh.

Pros
Look ! Not a fashion show
Behind knee coved
Felt light on for couple hours. (None riding)

Cons
Price
Kevlar or not still to thin
Not much side protection

Would I trust then in a crash - No :thumbdown:

Going to exchange for POC Joint VPD Knee Guard 2015 these look like they got more guts in them and will save from a fall.
