GLEN MILLS, Pa., Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Unequal® Technologies, the leading provider of customized, concealed sports protection, announced today that Not Just Soccer locations throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex will begin carrying Unequal protective products for high school and youth lacrosse, football, hockey, soccer and more, effective immediately.
Unequal products for the head, body and feet use a patented military-grade composite fortified with Kevlar®, Accelleron™ and an ImpacShield™ to provide superior protection already trusted by thousands of professional athletes in the NFL, MLB, NHL and X Games, as well as at universities, high schools and youth leagues across the country.
"We're thrilled to partner with Not Just Soccer to make Unequal protection readily available to young athletes and their parents in the Dallas area," said Rob Vito, CEO of Unequal Technologies. "We recognize youth athletes and families in Texas take sports competition seriously, and after outfitting athletes at SMU and multiple Dallas area high schools, we needed a way to help support the demand from parents to have Unequal products available just down the road."
Owned by Mike Unsell, Not Just Soccer has two locations in the Dallas metroplex in Highland Park and Carrollton. The retailer offers Unequal protection for the body, head and feet, including top sellers:
Barricade 5 Pad Shirt – five padded pockets protect the shoulders, ribs and the spine with Unequal composite pads fortified with Kevlar®, Accelleron™ and an ImpacShield™. Each pad is removable and the shirt is made of machine washable moisture wicking compression material.
Viper 5 Pad Girdle – five padded pockets protecting hips, thighs, and tailbone
MAXX – Supplemental head padding engineered for the best fit in lacrosse helmets. When added to a helmet, Unequal supplemental head padding reduces the Severity Index – a measure of risk or injury. The MAXX also has applications for use in helmets worn in recreational sports, action sports, football and more. Unequal also offers the BAND for head protective use in soccer and women's lacrosse.
Insoles – Unequal's insoles reduce the impact forces felt by the feet with the same application of composite technology fortified with Kevlar®, Accelleron™ and an ImpacShield™.
Unsell said, "Our customers look for latest innovations in sports gear to meet their kids' needs, especially when it comes to safety. By carrying Unequal products, we'll be able to provide more, high-tech choices to keep athletes on the field."
Each product features Unequal's patented military grade composite fortified with Kevlar®, Accelleron™ and an ImpacShield™. Typically less than a quarter of an inch thick, the patented Unequal composite helps disperse impact forces. Tests at third-party ISO17025-accredited test labs show Unequal supplemental head padding reduces up to 50 percent of the Severity Index – a measurement of hazard or risk of injury – compared to helmets without Unequal.

Remember, head and body protection are the second line of defense. Being careful and responsible is the first priority. Helmet and body pads do have limitations. No helmet pad can prevent or eliminate the risk of concussions or other serious head injuries while playing sports. Scientists have also not reached agreement on how the results of impact absorption tests relate to concussions. No conclusions about a reduction of risk or severity of concussive injury should be drawn from impact absorption tests. Unequal products are not bulletproof, bullet resistant, stab resistant or stab-proof. Obey the rules and "Code of Conduct" of the particular sport, game or activity. Use common sense and practice safe sports. For more information, visit www.unequal.com.
