Test Results Drop Testing

Drop Testing*

The Shockstrip® passed directed Drop Testing performed by a independent testing group located in Cleveland, Ohio. The drop testing was performed using various drop heights and g-forces. The helmet passed these tests with the Shockstrips in place and in fact, improved the performance of the helmet.

RESULTS SUMMARY:

  • There were NO tests in which the use of the Shockstrips caused
    the helmet to perform materially worse.
  • In most cases, the helmet actually performed better with Shockstrips
    on the helmet as compared to a plain helmet.
  • Tests revealed up to a 58% decrease in severity index (SI) upon impact.


*PLEASE NOTE: 1) No helmet pad can prevent or eliminate the risk of concussions or other serious head injuries while playing sports; 2) Scientists have also not reached agreement on how the results of impact absorption tests relate to concussions; and 3) No conclusions about a reduction of risk or severity of concussive injury should be drawn from impact absorption tests.
