Technology: EvoShield’s protective shields are made of a unique porous composite material that hardens with exposure to air. As the shields harden, they form to the shape of the athlete’s body, creating a custom fit protective guard. The material begins soft and flexible, but the chemical components inside the gel-like pads begin to harden when the shields are removed from the foil bag. In about 20–30 minutes, the once soft pad transforms into a hard and protective guard that is permanently moulded to the desired shape.
Results from intensive impact deformation testing have shown that EvoShield products disperse the force of impact better than EVA foam and hard plastic, the most common materials found in sports protection.
