Shhhh… don’t tell the anti- cycling and walking crowds about this invention.
From the makers of Xion Stuntpadding:
Our Xion protective gear product range is specifically designed to wear as undergarments.
The products are designed and tested by stuntmen / extreme sports athletes, stage and screen combatants, actors and more…
The fabric that carries the padding, is a lycra based stretchable fabric that comes in black with either grey or orange stitching (Skin colour fabric will be a future option as a specific feature to serve the stunt industry).
Most padded areas are covered with an abrasion resistant cordura with Teflon finish for extensive usage.
The Xion products are designed to protect the bony and rigid parts of the body. Because the padding is flexible, it does not perform in the same way on “soft” parts of the body as rigid protection does.
D3o (the padding in our products) combined with a hard shell, performs a lot better than any other rigid impact protection out there today but looses flexibility and movability by adding rigidity!
For the stunt business and most sports or professional applications this is a very important aspect of protection!
Rigid shell protectors do not give a person the desirable freedom of movement, even worse, these products are not worn as comfortable undergarments, just protection!
But can they protect you against the impact of a car? In the case of this stuntman on a controlled movie set, it appears so:
