Team Wendy UMPS are the first commercially available umpire facemask pad sets designed
utilizing Zorbium® foam, a material engineered by Team Wendy
chemists specifically for energy absorption and impact protection.
Designed with the same expertise used to develop the U.S.
military’s preferred helmet pads, Team Wendy’s UMPS™
set a new standard for facemask protection. Independent impact testing
shows Team Wendy’s UMPS™ lower peak acceleration by an
average of 30% and lower 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.
