UNEQUAL Technologies Releases EXO Skeleton

June 15, 2011


Protective technology specialist UNEQUAL Technologies has announced their latest EXO Skeleton line of supplemental full-body, specially built protective performance padding designed to take on concussions and other sports-related injuries head on.

The company has created this new padding to fit any size helmets and other protective gear.

This newly built padding works wonders for athletes, offering them impact-absorbing protective sports padding that dramatically reduces the possibility of injury to the head or body brought on by blunt force trauma that may happen.

EXO Skeleton uses DuPont KEVLAR patented formula to dissipate harmful energy vertically while spreading impact forces laterally, reducing the amount of force that can penetrate the head or body at the time of impact.

This lightweight padding includes ultrathin and is flexible to cradle any head and body, while providing extreme comfort and extra protection for athletes of all skill levels across all sports and activities.

EXO's patented formula offers athletes two independent shock-absorber systems in one single output. The first one helps deflect the initial impact force at point of contact and the second absorbs and disperses the majority of the remaining energy (called blunt force trauma) across the pad laterally and away from the body. That same force would easily penetrate typical traditional thicker pads that are more than three times thicker, to enter the body causing injury, pain, and even death, said company officials.

Rob Vito, founder and CEO of Unequal Technologies. "Sports are getting more aggressive, physical and extreme. Traditional padding just doesn't make the grade anymore and supplemental padding is needed to fill the void of adequate protection to help reduce the possibility of being severely hurt -- even death.”

According to Vito their EXO Skeleton line of padding is engineered to absorb the most energy possible to help reduce the possibility of injury -- to the head or body and the secret to that level of protection is their Kevlar composite.

“And, best yet, it is priced so parents, schools and coaches can protect their athletes without breaking the bank," Vito added.

The company is offering this new protective padding for $49.95 online at
