Technical Specifications

The now patented Shockstrip® was first prototyped in 2010 by Dr. Steven D. Novicky for the purpose of reducing impacts from helmet-to-helmet collisions. Shockstrips have also been shown to decrease the stress forces on the cervical spine and also dampen the helmet-to-helmet “cracking”.

Shockstrips are made of a proprietary, medical grade material with the primary function of absorption, deflection and sound deadening. The material can withstand extreme temperatures (hot or cold), is anti-microbial, does not "bottom out", and does not discolor.

Shockstrips are adhered to the helmet utilizing an impact absorbent adhesive (supplied) because it withstands extreme temperatures (hot or cold) and extreme impact, and has been thoroughly tested with our product on helmets.

Shockstrips have been independently drop tested and revealed up to a 58% decrease in severity index
(SI) upon impact.


  • 74% of the testing revealed a decrease in impact from helmet-to-helmet collisions.
  • 40% of the testing revealed a SUBSTANTIAL decrease in impact from helmet-to-helmet collisions.
  • Testing revealed a decrease in the stress forces on the cervical spine.
  • Tested to withstand up to 10,000 impacts before signs of wear and tear.
  • Both State and Federal Laws DO NOT prohibit the use of additional padding on the helmet.

*PLEASE NOTE: 1) No helmet pad can prevent or eliminate the risk of concussions or other serious head injuries while playing sports; 2) Scientists have also not reached agreement on how the results of impact absorption tests relate to concussions; and 3) No conclusions about a reduction of risk or severity of concussive injury should be drawn from impact absorption tests.
