The Science

Effective. Flexible. Strong.

How isoBlox Works

When impacting forces strike us, the ensuing energy must go somewhere, preferably not to our bodies. isoBLOX® uniquely formulated protective plates utilize a COMBINATION of energy dispersion AND energy absorption to diffuse impact.

Hard plates deflect initial impact and then subtly flex, via strong micro hinges, to absorb residual force. Only isoBLOX® proprietary, patent pending, hinged plates can offer this dual protection.

Power of Flexibility

Unlike a rigid shell, the isoBLOX® flexible hinge system of inter-connected plates allows for 100% total multi-directional flexibility. This means a protective product that moves freely and forms to the body. It moves when you move.

During laboratory impact testing, isoBLOX® has consistently demonstrated exceptional improvement over foam-based protective methods. isoBLOX® patent pending technology uses a proprietary inter-connected plate system that disperses impact while staying flexible. isoBLOX® is currently being used by global brands in high impact sports such as soccer and lacrosse.

The bio-mechanical design of the isoBLOX® matrix allows for significant amount of air flow and moisture transport, including when paired with breathable fabrics and perforated foams. isoBLOX® provides the wearer exceptional breathability and moisture wicking benefits.

Low Profile

isoBLOX® allows traditional “foam-only” padding and cushioning to be substantially thinner, consequently offering a major reduction in bulk. Lab testing shows products using isoBLOX® can be made nearly 60% thinner than traditional foam-only athletic protective gear AND protect better! Thin is better; thin and strong is BEST!

Unlimited Combinations

isoBLOX® protective material is easily layered and bonded to virtually any material or soft substrate, thus allowing product designers to integrate isoBLOX® protection into unlimited combinations. isoBLOX® sheet material can easily be cut and shaped to fit most any product application. Additionally, our factory has the capability to custom mold isoBLOX® into limitless forms, even varying the sizes and shapes of our protective, hinged plates.


isoBLOX® uses a specialized formula to create its ultra-lightweight, flexible protection. Additionally, since isoBLOX® flexible plates offer direct impact protection, underlying foam layers of various athletic protective gear can be reduced by nearly 60%, thus eliminating unwanted weight and bulk.


Performance Testing

isoBLOX® Technology is engineered to perform at the highest level, but before it hits the store, it hits both the lab AND the field.

isoBLOX® materials are extensively testing in the impact lab to ensure both quality and performance. Depending on the application, isoBLOX® materials are tested for tensile strength, flexibility, heat/cold tolerance, and both static and dynamic impact.

After lab testing, isoBLOX® materials are then tested in the real world by real people, real athletes. Then and only then is it ready to become part of a quality product and make its way into YOUR game.
