You're probably not a geriatric, so your hips don't rank high on your list of things that need protection while hucking. However, regardless of your age, you'll find that the ability to walk is pretty important. The POC Hip VPD 2.0 Ski Shorts
add a protective layer that won't inhibit your movement in the snow. These shorts can be difference between an ouch-and-rub or a two week leave of absence from the hill.
Made from a super-stretchy, ventilated mesh, the Hip VPD shorts are flexible and won't affect your freedom of movement. Treated with the odor-resistant Polygiene, the shorts stay fresh after a day of riding hard. For protection, the three-ply Visco Elastic Polymer Dough (VPD) inserts conform to the body and stiffen when impact is applied. And though the material is soft and flexible, it can absorb an incredible amount of shock and dissipate the energy of a brash fall.
The inserts have a slim profile and fit under shorts and pants without being bulky. And whether you're hucking yourself over snowy cliffs or bombing a descent through the aspens, they provide a high level of protection for your hips and tailbone.
The POC Hip VPD 2.0 Ski Shorts
are available in the color Black and in sizes Small, Medium, and Large.
