January 2015: Philadelphia PA: As Pele revolutionized the game of soccer, G-Form has created a “game changer” with their latest breakthrough in protective technology.
At the just concluded 2015 National Soccer Coaches Of America Convention, Pele introduced a new, protective shin guard by G-Form which is the first major change in this protective gear in fifty years.
Among the notable athletes who have used G-Form protective gear include soccer star Neymar.
G-Form Shin Guard Details: G-Form’s athletic and consumer electronic products utilize RPT™ – Reactive Protection Technology. RPT™ which is a combination of PORON®XRD™ material and proprietary G-Form technology that instantly stiffens upon impact and absorbs over 90% of the energy, offering state-of-the-art impact protection in a lightweight, flexible form.
G-Form’s athletic products feature unique hinging and molding, which allow athletes the ultimate freedom and flexibility when pushing themselves to the limits. G-Form’s low-profile RPT pads can be easily worn over or under clothing.
G-Form is already world renowned for having revolutionized protective gear in extreme sports such as BMX and mountain bike, skateboarding, BASE jumping and many others. Its technology enables shin guards and other body protection products to feel soft and flexible upon touch, but on impact, will absorb the force and harden. While the shin guards have been tested and worn by soccer professionals around the world for more than a year, the product will be introduced for the first time at the 2015 NSCAA Convention, and will be available for sale to soccer players through high-end retail distribution and direct to clubs.
The shin guard technology meets both NOCSAE and CE standards for use throughout the USA and Europe. G-Form products are 100% Made in the USA – everything from its design, and its unique chemistry and molding, to the fabric components and cut-and-sew procedures.
G-Form Technology: Impact Protection Revolutionized. Soft…Flexible…Comfortable Molecules in the foam slightly repel each other, making the material soft and flexible upon impact, the molecules instantly bind together to absorb and redistribute the energy.
Once the energy for the impact dissipates, the molecules return their original state Shin Guards are “form fitting” and stiffen on impact. The “harder the hit” – the stronger they become
