Shorts & Tights

POC Shorts & Tights is all about protection and performance and is an embodiment of POC’s approach to develop products that provide something new, relevant and meaningful. The range of bib shorts, tights and pants is borne out of extensive research and is developed together with some of most experienced and talented textile engineers and makers. All fabrics have been carefully chosen and by combining different technologies, materials and fabrics, we have achieved a unique combination of protection and performance.

We have looked closer into the specific needs of road cycling and importantly not only what to focus on, but also where to focus in order to improve performance and comfort, as well as to enhance protection.

Through our research we could see that the constant pressure and vibration in road cycling are more severe than expected. These findings required us to find new ways to provide for a higher level of protection without compromising performance. To address this concern, we have developed the unique silicone based VPDS, which is inspired by POC’s award winning VPD (Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough) compound. The impact absorbent VPDS inserts have been strategically placed to give support in specific riding positions and the silicone based inserts will retain their shape and will not deform or degrade with use.

 

POC Road Cycling Protective Pads - Materials & Construction

 

 

Contour Pad

Introducing POC Contour, a 3D shaped and seamless chamois designed for maximum support and comfort for long rides in the saddle.

The 3D molded silicone based VPDS inserts are strategically tapered and shaped to reduce vibrations and optimize your position on the bike, while allowing for optimal airflow. The wings and tail have been 3D shaped to follow the anatomic structure of the adductor, gluteal and perineal areas.

The perforated base layer guarantees maximum ventilation and the bacteriostatic properties of the fabric will keep your pad fresh over a longer time.

SIZES & WEIGHT

2,2,5 mm - 60 kg/m3
7 mm - 70 kg/m3
15 mm - 120 + 60 kg/m35 mm - 60 kg/m3
 

TECNICAL FEATURES

  1. 3D molded silicone based VPDS inserts for reduced vibration and anatomic support.
  2. 3D shaped for maximum support and comfort.
  3. Seamless design for comfort and support.
  4. Additional support in the front area.
  5. Bacteriostatic properties, which will keep your pad fresh over a longer time

 

 

Chrono Pad

To optimize the position of the aggressive rider, POC Crono is a multi-density pad where POC's silicone based pre-cut VPDS inserts have been strategically placed from the perineal area to the front area of the pad.

The Crono pad has a thinner profiler to allow for improved comfort during shorter length high intensity rides. The perforated base layer guarantees maximum ventilation and the bacteriostatic properties of the fabric will keep your pad fresh over a longer time.

SIZES & WEIGHT

2 mm - 40 kg/m3
11 mm - 80 kg/m3

TECHNICAL FEATURES

  • Silicone based pre-cut VPDS inserts for reduced vibration and anatomic support.
  • Seamless design for comfort and support.
  • Perforated base layer for maximum ventilation.
  • The fabric has bacteriostatic properties, which will keep your pad fresh over a longer time.

 

 

Multi D Pad

Multi D is a seamless chamois developed to reduce vibrations, relieve pressure points and reduce chafing.

The well-ventilated Multi D chamois uses POC's unique VPDS, a silicone based two dimensional pre-cut insert. The two inserts have been strategically placed alongside the perineal channel to reduce road vibrations, provide additional support while allowing for optimal airflow.

The perforated base layer guarantees maximum ventilation and the bacteriostatic properties of the fabric will keep your pad fresh over a longer time.

SIZES & WEIGHT
