Dow Corning announced that DEFLEXION material, a patent-pending protective textile, is featured by Scott Sports in its new line of winter sports gear. DEFLEXION technology, a silicone-based material that shields the body from the force of external impact, was showcased in new Scott Flex back protectors that were featured this month in Munich at the International Trade Fair for Sporting Goods and Sport Fashion (ISPO).

The new back protectors are designed to provide professional skiers and winter sports enthusiasts a comfortable protective solution that performs even in sub-zero temperatures. DEFLEXION technology adds a breathable protective layer to Scott Flex back protectors without sacrificing comfort or flexibility, both of which are essential to skiers.

In addition to the high-impact protection layer made from DEFLEXION material, the Scott Flex features adjustable chest straps, removable and adjustable leg loops, and hip belts with Velcro closures. Scott Flex back protectors will continue to feature protective plates made from d3o, but the addition of DEFLEXION technology is expected to optimize the protective qualities of the product and ensure breathability and protection and flexibility at low temperatures.

"We're thrilled to have DEFLEXION technology featured in Scott Flex," said Liz Mallen, business development manager for Dow Corning. "Winter sports are an ideal application for DEFLEXION material. The skier will experience the breathable nature of DEFLEXION technology and the performance and suppleness it brings at below freezing temperatures."

DEFLEXION technology has become a protective textile of choice for leading active apparel designers. Scott Flex is the fourth piece of active sporting apparel to feature DEFLEXION technology. In November of 2010, Dow Corning announced that DEFLEXION technology is being featured in sailing gear made by marine apparel brand Henri Lloyd for use by competitive sailors and nautical enthusiasts. DEFLEXION technology is also featured in vests made by RodeoTech for use by rodeo professionals who need freedom of movement, but powerful protection during rodeo competitions. DEFLEXION technology has also been featured in jackets and other protective equipment made by Rukka for use by Motorcycle riders.

DEFLEXION from Dow Corning offers a range of impact-protection technologies that allow for the easy creation of high-performance protective apparel and equipment. DEFLEXION technologies focus on providing exceptional comfort, enhanced fit, superior freedom of movement and, due to the unique stability of silicones, perform over a broad range of temperatures.

Dow Corning provides performance-enhancing solutions to serve the diverse needs of more than 25,000 customers worldwide.

SCOTT SPORTS SA, based in Givisiez, Switzerland, is a leading international manufacturer of premium bike accessories/equipment, wintersport and motorsport products.
