D3O Impact Protection Technology

Gear up with GameBreaker-PRO, powered by D3O.


Gamebreaker has partnered with D3O to offer the most comfortable, lightweight, highest performing, soft protective headgear in the game suitable for protecting against impacts & collisions.  Even in practice and other non-contact environments, collisions still can occur and without the protection of your traditional pads and helmets, the severity if the injuries can actually be greater than in full pads.

D3O is helping Gamebreaker build on the success of what is already the top soft padded headgear option for various sports and taking it to the next level with our up and coming Gamebreaker Pro model.

An introduction to D3O

D3O® proven patented technology

D3O shock absorbing helmet system


D3O® materials in their raw state flow freely when moved slowly, but on shock, lock together to absorb and disperse energy, before instantly returning to their flexible state. This reaction is counter intuitive. The greater the force of the impact, the more the molecules lock together and the greater the protection.
