Traditionally, helmets are designed, tested, and certified for compressional forces only, leaving a blind spot in modern helmet design: the sharp twisting of the brain during impact. Human evolution has not required the development of a mechanism to withstand such forces to the brain. Our patented micro-engineered film is a result of a decade of research and development on how nature protects itself. Shield-X’s technology uses biomimicry to help mitigate this sharp twisting.
Inspired by Nature, Proven by Science
Shield-X™ films are comprised of micro-engineered layers that glide along each other omni-directionally.
