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 a point where 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.

Further benefits:
  • Low-profile: Poron XRD® is extremely thin, 4.8 mm / 1.9 inches to be exact. This is why 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 and repels odours and stains, allowing you to simply 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.

Made with – Lycra

Most STEAKS® contact wear products are made of Lycra, which offers freedom of movement and a superior fit. LYCRA® Fiber blends into fabrics so clothes can move freely, fit your body better, repel velcro and last longer. The LYCRA® Fiber is elastic and thick nylon with a tight compression fit to support your muscles during performance. Find out more at www.lycra.com.

 

Skin- friendly: Oeko-tex
