CCM Youth Ultra Tacks Hockey Player Elbow Pad
D3O® smart foam is strategically situated in the elbow cap to disperse energy away from sensitive elbow joints and bones.
What is D3O?
D3O® is a patented technology used to make a soft, flexible “smart material” with high-rated shock-absorbing properties. In Mad Scientist terms, D3O® has a unique molecular structure. The composition of the material’s molecules continuously flows freely, allowing the material to remain soft and flexible, then, on impact, they lock together to absorb and dissipate the impact energy while reducing the transmitted force. The molecules instantly return to their flexible state following impact. The better the protection, the better we can protect both the player dishing out a hit and the player receiving it.
