Steaks Shinners Details & Technology
Your protection material: Poron XRD®
Our impact material is called Poron XRD®. It is soft and flexible when at rest, while above the glass transition temperatures (Tg) of the urethane molecules. When stressed at a high rate or impacted quickly, the Tg of the material reaches the point when the urethane molecules momentarily “freeze”- like water into ice. Thus the material firms to form a comfortable protective shell that absorbs and instantly dissipates up to 90% of the impact energy again and again.
- Low-profile: Poron XRD® is extremely thin, 4.8mm / 1.9 inches to be exact. Because of this the material can conform with movement, allowing you to move normally, but protecting you when needed.
- Longevity: our impact material is treated with Microban® Antimicrobial Protection that helps prevent the growth of bacteria, odours, and stains, allowing you to rinse your contact wear product (after training) a few times before having to actually wash it and thereby strain the material.
- Breathability: the XRD® Technology is open cell and breathable, offering protection without plastic or other materials that will increase a heightened body temperature.
