ABOUT US

The Kollide team combines the expertise of academic researchers and four innovative Montreal-based companies, each with unique and complementary experiences in 3D-printing, Sports equipment Design, and Validation Testing.

Four separate entities merged as one, and geared toward a singular vision: taking innovation, high-end research methods, and scientific evidence to create the best sports equipment possible.

OUR PARTNERS

We are proud partners of ETS and MEDTEQ+, and are recipients of the HeadHealthTech Helmet Challenge Fund.

OPTIMIZED LATTICE

Our concept lies in a unique liner made of complex and organic networks of lattice structures optimized for impact absorption. 

INNOVATIVE AM MANUFACTURING

AM offers new freedom in architecture and expands the range of possibilities for design, production, and performance of novel architectural forms.
