For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. XRD® performance cushioning absorbs up to 90% of energy from impact to help protect joints and muscles from impact and vibration injuries, especially through the palm of the hand. XRD foam is thinner, lighter, less dense and more comfortable than other competitive impact absorbing materials, while strategically conforming to the area it’s protecting. XRD open-cell foam allows air to move freely with movement and maintains up to 98% of its original thickness, while other polyurethanes and EVA blends break down with use over time. With XRD you can expect the same level of impact resistance on every job, use after use.
