What is MAP

Multi-impact Adaptive Polymer

MARKER MAP PROTECTION is an innovative, closed-cell foam delivering multi-impact absorption. The specific weight is extremely low compared with previous protective materials. Under normal conditions, MAP (Multi-impact Adaptive Polymer) is pleasantly soft and flexible, ensuring freedom of movement and comfort. It goes without saying that MAP performs at a high level in all temperature ranges.

Why MAP

Minimize risks

MAP focuses on sport-specific injury risks and was developed to enhance functionality and protection. It incorporates research insights into high-end products engineered to account for all anatomical, bio-mechanical and impact-relevant aspects. MAP was developed in cooperation with the University of Bologna, which provided scientific consulting for the entire process. MAP delivers an optimal tailored fit, unrestricted freedom of movement and increased protection for products and readily adapts to the individual dimensions of the athlete. MAP serves as a seal of quality that distinguishes all high-end MARKER models.

How MAP works

Increased energy absorbtion

MAP is pleasantly soft and flexible, but upon impact begins to stiffen even while the strike is still happening. This helps to absorb energy faster and more effectively. Thanks to its multi-impact properties, increased protection even against multiple rapid strikes is provided.

MAP temperature stable

MAP performs at a high level in all temperature ranges. The influence of temperature on shock absorbing properties is far less than with other materials.

MAP multi impact absorption

Thanks to its multi-impact properties, the MAP foam resumes its original form instantaneously, ensuring increased protection even against multiple rapid strikes.
