D3O brand partner Schutt has joined forces with STX to create the STX Stallion 500 helmet which will provide advanced protection for elite lacrosse players.
The STX Stallion 500 uses a powerful combination of Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU) Cushioning™ and D3O® technology to provide advanced protection
Designed specifically to fit the performance needs of the elite lacrosse player, the STX Stallion 500 uses a powerful combination of Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU) Cushioning™ and D3O® technology to provide advanced protection.
Schutt’s TPU Cushioning system, based upon materials used by the US military for fighter pilot and paratrooper helmets, is designed for better impact absorption and targets key areas in the front and crown of the helmet. The patented D3O technology allows the helmet interior to remain soft and flexible in its natural state. Upon impact, however, the molecules in D3O lock together to absorb and disperse impact energy, providing exceptional protection.
D3O’s patented impact protection technology has been developed and honed in the defence sector and in global sports including American football, baseball, ice hockey, cricket, rugby and skiing. D3O’s shock absorbing helmet liner system for soldiers has received funding from the UK Technology Strategy Board and is currently being tested by PEO Soldier, the US Army’s acquisition agency. D3O is committed to reducing the severity and occurrence of traumatic brain injury (TBI and mTBI) in soldiers and professional and amateur athletes alike.
