Révèle Contact Sportswear
95% of women engaged in contact sports have already experienced bruising and trauma on the bust.
With the support of the Breast Health Institute at The University of Portsmouth and the expertise of Dr. Joanna Scurr’s team, REVELE initiated the first study to ever be conducted on the impacts of shocks on breasts, experienced during MMA combat (Mixed Martial Arts).
Why MMA ? The extensive spectrum of shocks and impacts found in the sport varies from projections, direct hits (top and bottom) to high abrasion,… This gives us a global understanding of impact and facilitates the study of shocks and impacts on the bust.
A NEW PRIORITY : THE COOPER’S LIGAMENTS
Female athletes in contact sports are exposed to multiple impacts, sometimes at high velocity, and can suffer from bust pain and premature sagging of the breasts.
The Cooper’s ligaments are the sole supporting structures maintaining the breasts. These fragile structures are vulnerable to impact, tearing and destruction: all damage is irreversible.
With no existing medical solution, it’s time to talk prevention. It is absolutely essential to have and wear the proper support to prevent early stretching in combination with an adapted protection to decrease these risks of damage to sensitive bust zones.
REV TECH: ZONED FOR PERFORMANCE.
Thanks to the results of our research study, we were able to determine the specific bust-zones most vulnerable to impact during contact sports (power and frequency).
We then applied a method consistent with our research to define placement of our shock absorption technology over the bust and shoulders.
This R&D has been backed for over 18 months by athletes up to the highest levels, participating in testing and the gathering of information to help improve and ensure the comfort, performance and fit of the REVELIA.
TECHNOLOGY. MADE DIFFERENT.
Thanks to our soft materials engineering lab, we sourced the premier soft shock absorption technology available today : the XRD Extreme Impact Protection.
It absorbs up to 90% of impact against hard surfaces reducing the potential damage to our fragile Cooper’s ligaments and overall bust zones.
The REVELIA is a key marriage of optimal placement of XRD and a unique, seamless encapsulation process of the technology providing ultimate comfort, increased movement and improved durability while eliminating chaffing on the bust.
The REVELIA is protection, reimagined.
XRD® Extreme Impact Protection associates their latest innovations with the best potential design. This particular XRD material, while soft and flexible, is able to withstand the strongest of impacts.
XRD® Technology has a reputation for it’s light, thin, and breathable qualities and was developed to absorb repetitive impacts at a high velocity. Today, this material holds a reputation for best performance in nearly 90% energy absorption after impact (measures from ASTM-F1624-C). Principally used for motorcyclists, extreme sports, and dangerous professions, it’s efficiency proves to be the best material available for today’s market.
Essentially, XRD® Material gets its softness when at rest while above the “glass transition temperature” (Tg) of the urethane molecules. When stressed at a high rate or impacted quickly, the Tg of the material reaches the point when the urethane momentarily « freezes » – like water freezing into ice. When this happens, the material firms to form a comfortable protective shell that shields the body from impact.
