D3O® is a smart material with high shock absorbing properties. In standard conditions, the molecules flow freely allowing the material to remain soft and flexible, but on impact, they lock together to absorb impact energy and reduce the force transmitted. The molecules instantly return to their flexible state.
The material is strain rate sensitive which means the stronger the impact, the more the molecules react, and better the protection. The D3O® material does not go hard when hit, but the molecules lock together to absorb and spread the force, significantly reducing the effect of impact.
Why is D3O® better than hard protection?
D3O® reacts to the unique impact environment e.g. at high speeds it provides a different level of impact to at low speeds. D3O® absorbs and dissipates the impact energy which reduces the force transmitted. It delivers the most flexible and discreet protection on the market and it consistently outperforms traditional foam based materials. D3O®'s unique molecular properties means it can remain thin and flexible, while providing optimum protection against impact.
In order to provide maximum protection without giving up on unlimited mobility, we use in all our knee and elbow protectors the outstanding D3O® material.
