The sections ahead delve into the intricacies of Ribcap’s impact foam technology, explaining how it minimizes impact and guards the head.

Impact Foam Technology

Impact Foam Technology is a revolutionary material developed by Ribcap that provides an exceptional level of protection against head injuries. It is a combination of multiple materials, including:

  • Poron XRD

  • D3O

  • GPhlex

  • EVA foam

  • Unfinished leather

These materials collaborate to absorb and dissipate the energy of an impact.

This technology is lightweight, breathable, and comfortable, making it ideal for use in Ribcap helmets. Rest assured that Impact Foam Technology ensures superior head protection in your Ribcap helmet, without any compromise on comfort or style.

Reducing Impact and Protecting the Head

Ribcap helmets are designed to reduce impact and protect the head from potential injuries, including head injury. The foam layer present in helmets compresses upon impact, reducing the severity of the impact and minimizing the transmission of force to the head. This serves to mitigate the risk of head injuries, such as concussions.

Furthermore, the multi-density impact foam is crafted to disperse impact forces and reduce rotational acceleration, thereby augmenting head protection. Wearing a Ribcap helmet, you can be at ease, knowing that you’re shielded from head injuries.
