Developed over two years of intensive research and collaboration with safety specialists, carbon experts and university professors to utilize the latest thinking in pioneering industry technology, ExoGuard is a ground-breaking innovation in met protection and safety.
This patented protection system offers unprecedented defence against metatarsal impact, using highly advanced design and materials to offer shock- absorption and energy dispersal that simply isn't available anywhere else on the market.
At the heart of the ExoGuard is a specialised protective carbon strap featuring graphene mixed with resin, which is over 200 times stronger than steel. This type of material is used in radar and stealth aircraft - that’s the level of technology that ExoGuard utilizes in its met protection. Designed with zoned flexibility, the strap is securely anchored yet seamlessly integrated into the boot, so comfort is never compromised.
PROTECTIVE PU STUDS
Beneath the protective carbon strap is a network of PU studs designed to evenly distribute energy transferred from the carbon strap after the initial impact, further safeguarding the metatarsals bones. Finding the right specialised physical structure of this compound, arriving at the optimum design for maximum energy dispersion and absorption as well as the appropriate weight and levels of comfort took 2 years of development.
SUPERIOR SHOCK ABSORPTION
ExoGuard‘s third line of defence against impact is an advanced dual density PU pad. This material distributes away the remaining minimal energy waves from impact with its superior shock-absorption and reliable energy dispersal. This durable yet cushioned material also offers additional comfort for the foot as well as furthering the flexibility of the ExoGuard for the wearer, so comfort and protection are given in equal measure.
OUTPERFORMING THE FIELD: TESTING AND PERFORMANCE
Many boots on the market are unable to get a consistent pass in the met safety test, but ExoGuard’s superior strength means consistent passes pose no problem.
We tested the Invincible against other leading met boots on the market, and it outperformed them all, achieving 10% over the required clearance level. And this score wasn’t simply our best outcome – it was an average of the multiple times the boot was tested.
