Nutshellz groin protectors are a bit different from the rest; we don’t have a weakest link like our competitors who focus only on profit and produce cheap plastic crap. You don’t care about greater returns for the owners and investors, do you? You care about user experience. Cheaper products mean you, the customer, will have to re-purchase often if an IMPACT EVENT happens. Let’s hope that same breakage doesn’t mangle your manhood in the process.
The first step in making Nutshellz starts with the selection of the best materials in the world. We didn’t want to just make the most comfortable cup – we wanted it to be the finest ever. In order to make the finest “Hand Made” groin protector, we realized that a product is only as good as its weakest link. We weren’t really comfortable associating the word “weakest” and Nutshellz together. Building the world’s strongest handmade groin protector became our goal.
Without getting into too much of the production science, let us tell you about the materials that make us the only cup with no weak links. Our cup has two main parts and for this explanation we will focus on the core of the cup or let’s call it the armor. Armor is a very suitable word to explain the core of the Nutshellz because that is exactly what it is. We stack multiple layers of Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE)1, Aramid fabric, and the finest Carbon fiber and Resins from (Composite Envisions)2.
UHMWPE is the strongest fabric on earth to date. Composite Envisions has the strongest epoxy we have found and keeps the whole composite part held together and the carbon fiber we purchase is the finest available and from the best supplier in the United States – again “Composite Envisions. “ We don’t have thousands of products on the store shelves. We might even be sold out at times when you try to order – these things require a labor intensive manufacturing process. We can’t compete with the big boys when it comes to sheer numbers and a cheap price. We will tell you this though – you will not find a stronger more comfortable, better quality groin protector anywhere. How much are your Nuts worth?
- Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE, UHMW) is a subset of the thermoplastic polyethylene. Also known as high-modulus polyethylene, (HMPE), or high-performance polyethylene (HPPE), it has extremely long chains, the longer chain serves to transfer load more effectively to the polymer backbone by strengthening intermolecular interactions. This results in a very tough material, with the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made.
- Composite Envisions – the most complete supplier of Carbon fiber,resins and composite building supplies in North America. This is a company that has grown along with Nutshellz and continues to offer the newest and most advanced materials – science has to offer.
