So how does PORON® XRD™ protection work?
Let’s face it: the stakes are high and nothing can hold you back. Whatever your pursuit, you’ll want THE advanced material of choice: PORON® XRD™ Extreme Impact Protection. Comfortable, flexible and lightweight, PORON XRD protection frees you of rigid, bulky and constricting padding. On impact, the PORON XRD high performance molecules create a unique protective shield that absorbs up to 90% of the most intense force* - hit after hit.
PORON XRD technology is designed for life on the edge - a high performance game changer that lets you concentrate on your next move, and not be inhibited by the last hit.
Repeated Impact Protection
PORON XRD technology offers the best repeated shock absorption of any high performance protection foam for extreme applications. In a nutshell, impact force dissipates and is distributedover a larger area, resulting in lower stress to the wearer. Upon high speed contact, PORON XRD material instantaneously firms creating a protective shield that absorbs the strike, while remaining comfortable and non-confining as it returns to its ‘resting’ state. Because XRD foam will not break down on impact you get maximum protection every hit. So, go ahead. Slam it; crash it; pound it. When everything depends on it, PORON XRD protection will be there for you - strong.
The XRD difference is notable even when the foam is at its thinnest, which means protective gear featuring PORON XRD protection are often more comfortable, flexible and breathable than other protective products. It feels soft and smooth and contours to the body. PORON XRD technology helps to eliminate the need for the uncomfortable, rigid and bulky padding found on elbow and shin pads, ensuring a more customized fit.
When things heat up, keeping your cool is crucial. Breathable PORON XRD technology fits like a second skin for as long as you wear it, ensuring ease of motion and air flow. And, it won’t weigh you down with bulky padding, so you are free to focus on the game, not on your equipment.
Thin and Lightweight
Kiss your bulky, uncomfortable padding good bye. PORON XRD technology means you get the best protection – period – in a lightweight material that can replace bulkier, non-conformable pads. The XRD difference comes in a wide range of weights and thickness options, but is always recognizable by the signature XRD yellow.
Our application testing shows PORON XRD molecules will not break down over time like some competitive materials. So you get the same superior cushioning and protection performance throughout the lifetime of the product.
