As there are loose foam pieces in the baffles, it tends to conform really well to falls. On the next prodcution run, we will be adding one more baffle to the system so that it will be flatter and have a more compact feel.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Hey Paul,

The landing is definitely softer than your typical closed/open cell combo pads. We've done drop tests with bowling balls to help visualize this effect with the new R3. Typically the bowling ball would bounce much higher off of our Mad Pad and other similar pads and bounce much less on the R3. Also our athletes who have been using the pads have not had problems with it bottoming out...just the weight!

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Mad Rock

Hey Paul,

The R3's weight currently is at around 26-27 pounds. Originally for the first few samples it was closer to 14. Unfortunately the factory that we were grabbing the original softer, lighter foam closed and we had to repurpose heavier EVA foam and mix in PU foam pieces as well to keep the landing soft and cushiony. We've already approached other factories that use the softer, lighter foam about recycling it through our factory and the next production run will be lighter for sure. It's been a very difficult process working with recycled materials but I think we've worked out the kinks and you'll see a more user friendly soon.

Thanks,

Mad Rock
