Team Wendy UMPS are the first commercially available umpire facemask pad sets designed utilizing Zorbium® foam, a material engineered by Team Wendy chemists.
Designed pecifically for energy absorption and impact protection with the same expertise used to develop the U.S. military’s preferred helmet pads.
Independent impact testing shows Team Wendy’s UMPS™ lower peak acceleration by an average of 30% and lowers the severity index by an average of 40%. This ultimately lowers the exposure of the wearer to potential injuries caused by impacts during the game.
The energy-absorbing nature of Team Wendy’s Zorbium ® foam enables our pad set to decrease overall acceleration forces caused by impacts better than most commercially available umpire masks.
