Currently patent pending, the Shockstrip® was first prototyped in 2010 by Dr. Steven D. Novicky for the purpose of reducing impacts from helmet-to-helmet collisions. Shockstrips have also been shown to decrease the stress forces on the cervical spine and also dampen the helmet-to-helmet “cracking”.
Shockstrips are made of a proprietary, medical grade material with the primary function of absorption, deflection and sound deadening. The material can withstand extreme temperatures (hot or cold), is anti-microbial, does not "bottom out", and does not discolor.
Shockstrips are adhered to the helmet utilizing an impact absorbent adhesive called Loctite® 4205™ is supplied to be used exclusively because it withstands extreme temperatures (hot or cold) and extreme impact, and has been thoroughly tested with our product on helmets.
Shockstrips have been independently drop tested and revealed up to a 58% decrease in severity index
(SI) upon impact.
