With Behold, you no longer have to chose between protection, comfort and flexibility.

The AVA Back Plate

The flexible compound integrated into our Behold back protector is based on a viscoelastic polymer and reduces impact force by viscous and elastic deformation.

It deforms AND stiffens, which means that the impact energy is both spread out, as well as absorbed.

By optimizing and balancing its properties carefully, we have been able to meet the certification requirements, while offering an unprecedented level of flexibility and ventilation.

AVA Protection System

By using our AVA compound, we have been able to create the most ventilated, flexible, and low-profile back protector on the market.

AVA is short for Absorb, Vent and Adapt, and has been developed together with leading polymer experts and members from Flaxta Science Crew.
