XRD® Technology


XRD® Technology is all about action – and impact!

XRD® Extreme Impact Protection is a microcellular technology that is flexible, breathable, lightweight and provides overall comfort. A wearable impact protection technology that works with you and is there when you need it most.

The soft contouring material instantly dissipates force upon impact absorbing up to 90% of energy, by forming a comfortable protective shell that shields the body from impact better than other protective foams currently available. As a batsman this allows you to focus on the intensity and challenge of the game situation, not the impact. On the measure that matters most - absorbing more impact energy at higher speeds. Need we say more?

The Best Repeated Impact Absorption Material!

PORON XRD Extreme Impact Protection is soft and contouring against the body, yet instantly dissipates force upon impact.

+ Absorbs up to 90% of energy when impacted at high strain rates
+ Maintains performance beyond the life of the product
+ Consistent repeated impact absorption
+ Excellent compression-set resistance
+ Microban® antimicrobial protection inhibits the growth of stain and odour-causing bacteria

XRD® Impact Testing

The Test

An impact is simulated by dropping a weight on the various materials used in protective gear. A pressure-sensing device measures the magnitude of the impacts transmitted on the underside of the materials (aka how much of the impact you would feel).

The pressure is color coded from purple (lowest) to red (highest).

The Results

XRD® Technology absorbs more impact energy than competitive materials – nearly twice as much in some cases. The impact is also distributed over a greater area to better protect you as opposed to penetrating through the material.

XRD® Technology will keep you protected while allowing you to perform at your highest peak.
