KENNETT SQUARE, Pa., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- UNEQUAL® Technologies, the leading provider of serious, athletic protective gear made with a patented, military-grade, battle tested composite, featured prominently in several key athletic contests over the weekend.
Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch led the team to an important victory over the Baltimore Ravens Sunday, wearing Unequal EXO Armor padding on his torso and legs, while his teammates James Harrison, Troy Polamalu and Ryan Clark wore Unequal CRT in their helmets.
"The added confidence that comes from knowing you are wearing the best protection on the planet helps your attitude in subtle ways," Batch said. "Let's face it, there are a number of factors that contribute to a win, but Unequal is one more way to have an edge when it counts."
Boxing sensation Austin "No Doubt" Trout armored up with a custom-built Unequal cup and belt in his December 1, 2012, bout against Miguel Cotto. Despite several low blows, Trout was unfazed and won the match in a unanimous 12-round decision, keeping his unbeaten streak intact.
At the collegiate level, the Alabama Crimson Tide football team clinched a second straight trip to the Discover BCS National Championship Bowl with a victory over the University of Georgia Saturday. Alabama has outfit starters on both sides of the ball in Unequal protective gear throughout the 2012 season.
"Monday used to be our busiest day as trainers sought our military grade protection after injuries had occurred for use during the healing process. But our philosophy of proactive prevention is resonating and now athletes and teams armor up with our protection before they play," said Unequal president Rob Vito. "Unequal gear from head to toe helps to stave off injuries before they occur, whenever and wherever the product is worn."
Unequal Technologies offers a full suite of protective head and body gear for athletes in any contact or action sport, playing at any skill level, at any age.
