Introducing the XRD® 810 Delta: Exceptional Movement, Lightweight Impact Protection

Posted by Dave Sherman on Thursday, February 12th, 2015 | No Comments »

We’re proud to introduce one of the newest members to the XRD® Impact Protection family: the XRD 810 Delta. In previous posts we’ve outlined the supreme impact protection of the XRD 810 Hex and Mini Hex patterns. The all-new XRD 810 Delta pattern offers an unparalleled level of conformity and range-of-movement while remaining very light in weight.

Of course, the 810 Delta pattern also retains the remarkable impact protection of the open-cell XRD technology; and the unique delta shapes are specifically designed to effectively absorb broad, blunt forces while keeping the volume—and weight—of the material to a minimum. This makes the XRD 810 Delta perfect for applications requiring impact protection that is able to move along with the athlete: thigh, rib and forearm base layer applications are ideal.

Ultimately, the sky is the limit and the performance characteristics of all XRD Impact Protection products offer an exciting opportunity to re-engineer end products from the ground up.   To get started, download the 810 Delta Pattern guide, available in both A4 and 8.5″ x 11″ sizing.

For additional assistance, check out the XRD Impact Institute to see how we can help you design, prototype, and test the next innovation in impact protection.  Through our industry-leading products and design collaboration abilities, your end products will have a unique and engaging story to pass on to your consumers.
