Founder and CEO Shawn Springs, a retired NFL player acutely aware of the damage caused by collisions, initially studied the technology behind football helmets. Despite the persisting issue of collision-related injuries, he was shocked to discover that helmet technology across industries had not changed much in 30 years.

Focused on finding a solution to mitigate the effects of collisions, Windpact built a network of engineers, designers, and world-class scientists, all dedicated to the science of impact and how materials dissipate energy to improve impact protection.
