Great protection but not lightPOC sometimes tends to have issues with the sizing, but for knee protectors their size chart was just right.,,I've tried both DH and regular versions, the difference is hard cup on DH. While looking pretty similar they feel a bit different. Plastic cup add some bulk, so if you plan to use it for skiing make sure you have enough room in the knee area of your pants. For biking that doesn't matter. Plastic cup probably also restricts a bit the stretch of the fabric, so comparing them side-by-side I certainly felt DH version a bit more restrictive, which maybe important for longer rides. Both stay in place firmly while riding,,The good news is that plastic cup seems to add some more protection, DH version was more resistant to impact. The difference wasn't overhelming. I decided to keep DH cause think in case of crash they will stay in place better, plastic will allow them to slide over the ground, while regular VPD Knee has just a fabric and might be less stable in case of sliding impact.
