UNEQUAL Technologies Continues to Protect Athletes With Expansion of Its Ballistics Grade Protective Padding; Adds Two Pads to Its EXO Skeleton® Team: The Wall™ and Egis™

Company Continues to Break New Ground With Its Kevlar®-Based Shock-Absorbing Protective Pads Proven by the Military, Guaranteed to Reduce Blunt Force Trauma in Sports

PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - Coming off a successful Monday night protecting Dallas Cowboys Quarterback Tony Romo, UNEQUAL Technologies, the premier provider of protective technology for soldiers and athletes, today announced two new products in its EXO Skeleton® Body Armor line of supplemental full-body, protective performance padding. The Wall™ and Egis™ are designed to ensure athletes take game-ending tackles and hits head on. No matter the levels or age, The Wall and Egis provide unparalleled protective padding that put athletes on the offensive. These two new customizable products expand the EXO product line, enabling athletes to choose the level of protection they need for virtually any sport.

"In the end, all that stands between an athlete and his enemy on any given day is paper-thin polyester and ineffective foam," states Rob Vito, founder and President of UNEQUAL Technologies. "Romo knows first-hand the dangers that are associated with sports, as does Michael Vick, who also wears our padding to protect his chest and thighs. They know that additional protection is needed to survive the game. This is why they chose our EXO Skeleton padding to protect them on the field. Now, we're expanding that line to further protect athletes."

Like the entire EXO Skeleton line, The Wall and Egis consists of a multi-layer composite with ballistics grade DuPont™ KEVLAR® embedded within it, providing thick supplemental padding for extreme high impact applications.

EXO Skeleton The Wall: The Wall -- even at 9mm thin -- is thick supplemental padding for Xtreme high-impact applications. It is engineered to help further reduce the possibility of injury to the body caused by blunt force trauma (BFT) associated with intense contact sports and high-risk activities where hard impact occurs. It is recommended that the EXO™ Pad be used under, in, on or with existing hard shell or rigid padding for optimal protection and performance.*

EXO Skeleton Egis: The most protective of the EXO Skeleton products, EXO Skeleton Egis™ is the strongest supplemental padding UNEQUAL Technologies makes at just 11mm thin, with an added Xtreme Blast Shield™ for extreme circumstances. It is ultra-strong, ultra-thin supplemental padding (less than a ½") for full-on sports such as hockey, football and lacrosse where fast-flying bodies, projectiles, balls, sticks, pucks and bats can inflict serious bodily damage. High-risk positions like baseball catchers, umpires and goalies are candidates for Egis as are players with injuries that need extra protection. Use Egis with existing hard shell or rigid pads for optimal protection and performance to help reduce the possibility of injury from high impact forces.*

"Our products dampen harmful energy vertically while dispersing a significant amount of impact forces laterally, greatly reducing the amount of trauma energy that can penetrate the head or body at the time of impact," adds Vito. "That same force easily penetrates typical traditional thicker pads that are more than three times thicker, often causing injury, pain, and even death. All EXO Skeleton products have DuPont KEVLAR® at its core, making it the world's only patented suite of impact-absorbing protective sports padding to dramatically reduce the possibility of injury to the head or body brought on by a tackle, hit or flying object."

All EXO Skeleton padding is comfortable, lightweight, ultrathin and flexible so it easily conforms to and cradles the head and body. An air-cooling channel technology (AC2T™) keeps the protected area cool and dry. The EXO Skeleton protective padding is available online at www.unequal.com, with The Wall starting at $49.95 and Egis starting at $69.95. UNEQUAL products are the product of choice for many professional athletes including the Philadelphia Eagles and Michael Vick. UNEQUAL products are worn by 30% of the NFL and hundreds of professional and college athletes in baseball, football, basketball, golf, roller derby, soccer, skiing, ice hockey and biking, among others.
