All Full90 products are designed using patented TruPlay Technolgyª, a development process which combines applied physics, engineering and design with a deep appreciation for the heart and soul of an athlete, as well as an absolute respect for the game they play. For instance, the Full90 Performance Headguard doesn't alter the way it feels to head the ball. Another example is the HINGE feature of our shinguard, the first of its kind. It seems so simple, the human shin can be quite sharp or very rounded yet shinguards have always been the same shape. Our HINGE conforms to the unique shape of every shin and is a breakthrough in shinguard design.
ForceBloc Foamª is an ultra-lightweight cross-linked, high density foam made of polyethylene. This state of the art foam is used in all of our headguards and goalie pads. Tests show ForceBloc foam reduces impact forces.
Perhaps its most impressive application of ForceBloc foam is in our Full90 Performance Headguards. There are many types of hard surface impacts that occur in soccer such as; head to head, head to ground, head knee, or head to goalpost. The linear or rotational acceleration of these types of impact forces to a player's head can be devastating.
The F90 HINGE Shinguard has a revolutionary, patent pending hinge feature which creates the ideal curvature for the optimal ratio of protection, fit, and comfort. The unique hinge element allows the guard to fit any leg by flexing at key points and wrapping around the playerÕs shin. With the shinguard snuggly in place against the player's shin the ForceBloc foam is better able to absorb the impact forces as intended. This is precisely the problem with other shinguards, a loose fit around the curvature of the shin means the ball hits the shinguard then the shinguard hits your leg. A loose fitting shinguard can not do its job properly.
The F90 HINGE shinguard utilizes the innovative Quick Connect one-time-adjusting Clip. This clip has two unique features the first is the way in which it connects to the shinguard. As the name implies, its designed to snap on quickly and hold tight. The second is its ease of adjustability. You only need to adjust it to your shin once and you will have the right fit, every time.
COOLMAX¨ fabric is designed to move moisture away from the body and enhance fabric drying rate thus, keeping you feeling cool and dry. COOLMAX¨ fabric delivers performance and comfort through the use of proprietary polyester fibers with unique engineered microchannel cross sections.
The Full90 Premier Headguard has an opening in both of its occipital pads so that you can pull your ponytail through. Since the occipital covers the area most players chose to wear their ponytail, this allows you to wear your hair the way you like it without being hindered by the headguard.
Research shows that nearly all concussive impacts happen within a two inch band circling the head at the forehead, temples, and occipital bulge. This is the area Full90 Performance Headguards are designed to protect using advanced ergonomic engineering with applied biomechanics research to ensure that the headguard conforms naturally to the players head.
Our anatomical research of the skull has helped us to develop a design that adjusts to even unusual head shapes, such as protruding rear cranium and square vs. round foreheads, ensuring that any shape and size head can wear a Full90 Performance Headguard.
