With all the volleyball pads for knees on the market, it would take a very
innovative and forward-thinking company to market and promote a pair
that would stand out from the crowded marketplace.
Nfinity may just be that company.
Unlike any other knee pad available to volleyball players today
the one marketed by Nfinity is made with d3O.
That's because Nfinity has an exclusive agreement to use d3O
According to Richard Palmer, founder of the d3O lab, d3O is a soft
material that has fantastic shock absorbing properties that basically
work to absorb impact.
Described as a rubbery fluid made with "intelligent molecules" which the
company specially engineers so that when a volleyball player moves,
the molecules flow and move with them, but the molecules lock together
to absorb and disperse energy upon hard impact.
The d3O technology is based on "providing protection" so the harder the
impact, the faster the molecules react, giving a volleyball player the
freedom to perform while still responding to one's needs for protection.
D3O looks like play dough and the d3O lab has engineered many ways
to integrate the material into a variety of products.
D3O is now also being applied for use in hats, clothes, motorcycle suits,
and elbow pads.
The D3O lab makes the claim that this technology can protect people
from pain and injury.
Anywhere a person or player needs freedom of movement, but also
requires shock absorption is where the company believes they can
apply d3O technology.
Historically when it came to participating in active sports, the materials
used for impact protection were rigid or bulky. Not so, with d3O!
At five (5) inches the Nfinity knee pad covers the smallest amount of skin
area around the knee compared to others.
It's also the slimmest one on the market at only 8mm of thickness.
Even with those dimensions, Nfinity claims that their knee pads offer total
patella, tibia and femur protection.
And if that isn't enough to set it apart from the competition, check this--it
comes with an "Nfinipocket" which is where a volleyball player can insert
(or remove) the Nfinity d3O pad inserts.
When integrated into the knee pads the d3O material is breathable,
comfortable and unlike most materials that only either absorb energy
OR they return energy without absorbing shock well--the d3O
technology purportedly does both.
Priced at around $50 you get a few accessories with your purchase. In
the kit you get interchangeable black and white sleeves, so you can
alternate days you use your sleeves which means to me, that you
basically are getting two (2) pairs of volleyball knee pads instead of
You get two Nfinity d3O pad inserts, obviously for both knees, but a mesh
laundry bag is also included in your purchase.
Great things come in small packages.
The new Nfinity Volleyball Knee Pads are the smallest on the
market, but offer the most protection using the latest technology.
d3o Intelligent Shock Absorption pads are thin, soft, and flexible.
Their intelligent molecules flow when moved slowly but lock together
on impact to absorb shock. View the video on how to insert d3o foam
into nfinity knee pads.
