SmartFlex™ seals in exoskeleton rate dependent materials that can change its molecular structure on contact. Translation? It's soft when lightly touched, yet hardens on stronger impact. Have a look at how it works. It's pretty cool stuff.HOW IT WORKS
INSIDE THE PAD
the molecules in the foam slightly repel each other, making the material soft and flexible.
molecules bind together causing the pads to stiffen, absorb, and redistribute the energy from the impact.
molecules return to their original state, pads go back to being soft and malleable.
