SAVE YOUR KNEES.
World-leading certified knee protection.
Our state-of-the-art kneepads incorporate D3O® technology to provide exceptional impact protection and shock absorption. Louise Wilson from the British company D3O® explains how this works.
“D3O® is a unique technology that enables us to create innovative, active materials that react differently depending on the type of forces they are subjected to. The molecules in the material flow with the movements of the user, but upon shock will lock and stiffen to absorb the energy of the impact. This means that we are able to offer a unique combination of comfort and flexibility with extreme protection when it really counts.”
D3O® technology is used in a wide range of body-protection products. It can be found in everything from clothing and footwear for motorcyclists and extreme sports athletes to PPE for the armed forces and the police.
“I think we’ll soon start seeing more solutions in personal protective equipment that are similar to those used for extreme sports, for example when it comes to protecting your head, neck, elbows and hands,” says Louise Wilson from D3O®.
