Trusted Impact Protection

Home Discover D3O > Trusted impact protection

Every D3O® product and material starts life in the D3O Lab in London. It's a state-of-the-art innovation centre where we ensure everything matches our commitment to making the world's best impact protection. 

D3O® Material Science

When it comes to shock absorption and impact, nothing protects better than D3O®. Our rate-sensitive materials are used in market-leading products from some of the biggest global brands.

Our expert team of chemists and engineers combine advanced polymer chemistry with cutting edge design to produce soft and flexible materials with no compromise on comfort, but strong enough to protect you in the harshest of environments.

D3O® absorbs and dissipates the energy from impacts, reducing the amount of force that gets transmitted to your body compared to standard foams.

Each one of our broad range of D3O® technologies is tailored to solve a specific problem or need in sport, motorcycle, electronics, defence and industrial workwear.

D3O® Engineering and Testing

The D3O Lab is home to state-of-the-art laboratories for material development, product design, prototyping and testing, allowing us to turn an initial idea into award-winning D3O® technologies.

Every D3O® product you see online or in-store is the result of hours of testing in the D3O Lab. Nothing leaves the building until we know it’s going to do the job.

Our engineers use state-of-the-art equipment to evaluate and optimise new D3O® technologies right the way through their development cycle. 

They run a huge range of material characterisation, impact, abrasion resistance, comfort and dexterity tests to make sure you end up with impact protection that you can trust. 

We're passionate about that. As a premium brand and innovator of impact protection and shock absorption solutions, D3O is committed to leading the way on quality, performance and safety.
