D3O is a ground breaking impact protection solutions company that licenses a range of unique patented smart materials. This market changing technology is used to produce a shock absorbing material which can be found in a range of products across the motorcycle, sport, footwear, electronics, military and workwear sectors.

The technology was first proven during the 2006 Winter Olympics, when the US and Canadian ski teams pioneered D3O's revolutionary soft armour. With no compromise on D30 Raw Form - Impact Protection material used in Tech21 D3O casesprotection, D3O changed the global protective wear market overnight with a range of low profile, light weight, flexible and breathable protecting systems.

D3O markets a range of different patented materials with shock absorbing and impact protective properties. At Tech21 we use specialised ST sheets of D3O® which are carefully integrated in to each of our innovative designs. Incredibly, testing at the D3O lab concludes that a three millimeter strip of D3O® ST conducts 57% less energy force than a ten millimeter strip of EVA material -- despite the D3O® ST sheet being 60% thinner.

Created at the D3O lab, this unique patented technology is based on Non-Newtonian principles. Non-Newtonian fluids such as ketchup, toothpaste and shampoo are unique because they have a viscosity (the measure of the material's resistance to gradual deformation from stress) which depends on shear weight.

This means that the deformation of these Non-Newtonian materials is affected by, and depends on, the amount of physical stress it's placed under; the more stress, the more absorption.

Committed to producing intelligent Impactology products which provide advanced impact protection, we've worked to incorporate D3O into our designs. This means that you can rest assured your device is covered from the inevitable bumps and knocks of life.
