BrainShield™ is Inspired by Nature

Woodpecker's skull and lower mandible, have bone structures that allow sliding (deformation) that helps in absorbing impact forces.

Woodpeckers hammer their beaks into trees at the astonishing rate of 18 to 22 times per second, subjecting their brains to deceleration forces of 1200 g with each strike. This is more than 100 times the g-force required to give a football player a concussion, according to research conducted by the NFL. The woodpeckers tongue has what is known as a hyoid layer, which is attached to the tongue to reduce vibration. BrainShield™ acts as a hyoid layer reducing the rotational impact to your brain.

BrainShield™ Rotational Impact System

Shield-X is an integrated rotational impact system that greatly reduces impact forces that can cause brain injuries. Shield-X is integrated into the helmet pads to allow a sliding motion between the head and the helmet during impact.

BrainShield is optimized for Performance, Weight, Cost, Durability, Comfort, Premium Design.
