Concussions & Real World Data

At Kali we have one priority above all - we want to make anything we manufacture as safe as possible. Where advancements in helmet safety can be made, we make them.

This has been the precedent from day one - innovation was the foundation for Kali's inception. Our core technology, Composite Fusion, was the result of over 3 years of R&D and tooling, well before we even produced our first helmet. Composite Fusion is the DNA found in all of our helmets - it allows us to make them smaller yet lighter and stronger.

How do we measure our success? By consistently implementing development strategies that address the challenges behind reducing brain injuries. We collect, analyze and share as much helmet crash performance data as possible. We do whatever it takes, using any and all available proven technologies to ensure our helmets continue to lead the way.

 

Two Challenges in Reducing Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

1. Reduce linear acceleration

2. Reduce rotational acceleration

 

Linear concussions are the result of direct impacts that stop the head moving forward. Your brain, however, continues moving and collides with the interior of the skull, causing damage to either the frontal lobe or occipital lobe, or both. Rotational concussions result from lateral (oblique) impacts that spin the brain on its axis causing brain structures to tear.
