Helps reduce injury and stress.
Specially formulated for equine athletes.
Will not wear out, dry out, freeze, or melt.
Innovative Impact Products L.L.C. developed Zoombang to
protect against forces formerly impossible to guard against with
traditional materials. Zoombang is a lightweight polymer material. It
is soft, comfortable, and supportive at rest. But on impact, the
material instantly changes to behave as an elastic solid, dissipating
and transferring energy from blunt force trauma, shock, vibration, and
outside g-forces. Zoombang provides unprecedented protection. It
literally manages energy by dissipating and transferring it away from
the body. Zoombang works to reduce injury and dramatically improve
comfort for applications where protection is critical.
is widely used for its protection against injury in contact sports,
medical applications, and hazardous work environments. Zoombang
protective gear is used by every team in the NFL. The HNL, MLB, NASCAR,
and other high profile venues have found favor with the product for its
ability to protect their elite athletes.
For the past
months, Innovative Impact Products L.L.C. has worked closely with Cowboy
Armour and Classic Equine to develop a material specially designed for
applications used to protect equine athletes and keep them in the game.
stiff materials such as PVC offer a reasonably degree of protection
from impact, but they do not conform to the user and they are certainly
not comfortable. Gels, open cell, and closed cell EVA foams provide
comfort, but offer little protection against blunt force trauma.
Zoombang performs as a viscous fluid material at rest where it flows and
conforms to the anatomy providing comfort, cushioning, and support.
However, the visco-elastic material instantly reacts to sudden sheer
forces like shock. Upon impact, it changes to an elastic solid,
dissipating energy and reacting directly in proportion to the amount of
energy applied. Once the energy dissipates, the material instantly
transforms back to its soft, semi-solid state.
