High Fives Non-Profit Foundation is dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes that have suffered a life-altering injury while pursuing their dream in the winter action sports community. For every sold Spine VPD 2.0 Back HHF Edition, POC supports the High Fives Non-Profit Foundation.
The Spine VPD 2.0 Back is a well ventilated and minimalistic back protector made in VPD 2.0. It offers a great freedom of movement and a high level of protection for your back. VPD adapts to the shape of your body, but when exposed to impact, the material stiffens and has extreme impact absorption properties. The shoulder straps and waistband make sure the back protector stays safe and comfortable in place.

The new VPD 2.0 gives us a completely new alternative in the traditional trade-off situation between flexibility and real protection. Due to the ability to transform from soft to hard when needed and the extreme shock absorption properties, you no longer have to chose between freedom of movement and proper protection.
Offers better flexibility in cold temperatures and has an increased tear resistance. To further improve anti-penetration properties, the back protector has a durable thermoplastic polymer sheet integrated for extra protection in the spinal area. The VPD compound is highly dampening, soft, comfortable and adapts to create an individual fit. When exposed to impact, the material stiffens and has an extreme absorption of energy. This material is also multi-impact resistant extending the lifetime of the protection. All this gives you unsurpassed levels of comfort and safety.
