The main advantage of our padded hats is the unique patent-pending body adjust technology BAT which ensures superior protection and incredibly high level of comfort.
The unique built-in padding reacts to body’s temperature and becomes softer as soon as it reaches the optimal temperature of 36.6 – 37 C (97.7 – 98.6 F). BAT technology makes the padding mould around the head which gives the feeling that every PADHAT is custom made to each kid’s head. That is why kids won’t even notice the extra layer of protection but it will always be there.
The test results show that the built-in padding can absorb up to a 330 pounds (150 kg) hit. The technology is already used by professional athletes in the sports industry and can reduce the risk to get a head injury for kids.
The impact test for PADHAT was conducted in the Institute of Materials and Structures at Riga Technical University. The test setup was prepared according to the EN 1621-1 method, the European Standard testing method for motorcyclists’ protective clothing. The results showed that the padding that is used for PADHAT can reduce almost the same impact force as padding for motorsports. Which is why PADHAT is more than a hat!
