Heavy on Safety, Light on Interference

Safety shouldn’t come at the cost of limited visibility, increased weight or added bulk. Therefore, we designed the Crash Cloud system to be nonintrusive, lightweight and adaptable, ensuring that a product’s ability to protect doesn’t interfere with the user’s ability to perform.

Impact Protection That Doesn’t Impact Comfort

For generations, impact protection has been based on energy absorption through additional padding. This increased bulk leads to hot, heavy, uncomfortable gear. Windpact reimagined the problem to create a soft, lightweight system of airbags that is as comfortable as it is powerful.

Safety in Style

Crash Cloud’s system-based approach empowers product designers to conceptualize and develop equipment that performs as well on the field as it does in the mirror. No longer will people have to make the choice between style or safety.

There Are Different Types of Impacts, So We Took a Different Approach

Through extensive testing, helmets empowered with Windpact’s innovative technology, Crash Cloud™, have been shown to absorb and disperse impact energy far more effectively than the traditional absorption approach. Inspired by the science used to protect infants during car crashes, each Crash Cloud automatically adjusts to manage a wide range of impact rates, from soft bumps that only need minimal energy transfer to hard impacts requiring maximum energy transfer.

Here’s how it works:
