Zorbium® < back
Zorbium ® was created in 2002 and is a proprietary open-cell foam that its inventors (a Cleveland-based company called Team Wendy) claim is rate sensitive. To wit, the foam is said to deform easily in a lesser, low-speed impact, yet firm up in a harder impact.
Zorbium ® is also said to regain it’s shape and protective qualities after a crash, making it suitable as a helmet liner in multi-impact helmets. While Zorbium ® was originally promoted as a material for winter sport, skateboarding and cycling helmets, it has largely been restricted to use in Team Wendy’s line of tactical (law enforcement and military) helmets.< back
