There's a reason why G-Form is considered to be the pinnacle of innovation in the way of safety equipment for sports. As their offerings and competencies across the athletic spectrum expand, skateboarders of the world can rejoice and reap the benefits.
The G-Form Pro-X Compression Shirt provides unrivaled protection to the ribs, sternum, shoulder and clavicles in the way that it optimizes impact support while maintaining peak flexibility. This shirt is designed to move with the body, rather than restrict it, giving you the freedom to tuck, grab and compress as you need. G-Form's signature moisture eliminating technology also comes into play here as it's UPF 50+ fabric works to keep you snug and dry whether you are flying down hills or soaring over the coping. The best part? The G-Form Pro-X Compression Shirt's durable build allows you to use it and wash it over and over again without compromising the integrity of its protective capabilities.
The name of the game for G-Form products is form fitting padding, paired with the comfort of effortless flexibility. The technology behind the G-Form Pro-X Compression Shirt is no different. With their trademark Rate-Dependent Material (RDM) situated around the most vulnerable parts of the upper body, you can skate confidently, knowing that you are in good hands.
The secret behind G-Form's Rate-Dependent Material (RDM) lies in a set of molecules that are embedded in the padding and react accordingly, depending on the time of impact. These molecules act in a way that repels off of one another to keep the material fluid and flexible. However, when the impact occurs, these molecules band up to provide a layer of support to account for the pressure. Whether it's an unexpected blow to the shoulder from that sudden dip in the road or an all out belly flop from the speed wobbles, the technology held in the G-Form Pro-X Compression Shirt will be prepared to break your fall. When you get back up and prepare for your next run, the molecules in this shirt will be right behind you, moving back into their original, form-fitting state and preparing for their next call to action.
As you continue sweating through your skate session, the breathability of the of the G-Form Pro-X Compression Shirt will become apparent. Equipped with mesh side panels that run along the sides of the shirt, the potential for proper air flow and ventilation is created. With its UPF 50+ material, you can be sure to remain moisture-free throughout your ride. Plus, after a long day in the street or the park, the G-Form Pro-X Compression Shirt is machine washable and able to continue providing comfort and protection for the next session. (And the one after that!)
It should be noted, however, that the awesome protection of the G-Form Pro-X Compression Shirt does not mean that it will hold up regardless of how much it gets dragged across the asphalt. In fact, this shirt is not intended for long periods of friction and can be expected to rip if it is scratched along the ground too frequently. If you find yourself in this position, however, we would recommend wearing the G-Form Pro-X Compression Shirt under a leather suit or similar form of clothing that is designed to withstand the effects of skidding across pavement. Nevertheless, it is certain that there are few other options that can provide the balance of comfort and support that a superior option like the G-Form Pro-X Compression Shirt will.
