G-Form Announces the Arrival of Black Knee Pads, Shin Pads, and Elbow Pads Incorporating the company’s Reactive Protection TechnologyTM (RPTTM)

28 Sep 2011

PROVIDENCE, RI (September 28, 2011) – G-Form, a Rhode Island Company well known for its revolutionary bright yellow lightweight impact absorbing athletic protection, which changes molecular structure and stiffens on impact, is now making the technology available for the first time in basic black.

G-Form’s RPT™ – Reactive Protection Technology™ –is a composite blend of PORON®XRD™ material and proprietary G-Form materials and technology that absorbs over 90% of the energy from impact and utilizes that energy to convert the normally soft pad into stiff armor.  Unlike soft foam-like pads or hard-shell pads, G-Form’s RPTTM means that athletes no longer have to choose between performance or protection.  The G-Form RPT™ pad components are 100% designed and molded in the USA.

“Consumers have been amazed at the level of impact protection that our RPT™ provides without the bulk and restrictions in range of motion that are the hallmark of traditional protective clothing,” notes Thom Cafaro, VP of Innovations at G-Form.  “While many of our customers have loved the revolutionary look of the G-Form yellow extoskeleton, we have had many requests to deliver the technology in a more stealth package.  The arrival of black RPT™ will bring the technology to many new markets including law enforcement and military customers.”

The  RPT™ Knee, Elbow and Shin pads are now available in black and yellow for $49.95.  All products are currently sold through G-Form’s website at www.g-form.com and distributed through US retailers and international distribution; further information about the retailers and distributors who carry G-Form can also be found on the website.

In addition to athletic protection, G-Form also has a growing line of 100% USA made electronic device protection using its RPT™ technology, including the world famous Extreme Sleeve™ line of cases for laptops and tablets.
