The Second Generation Force3 Defender Umpire Face Mask is the next generation of baseball umpire face masks. After many years of designing, prototyping and testing Force3 has developed a truly amazing technological creation!
After many years of designing, prototyping and testing, Force3 is proud to introduce the next generation of baseball and softball umpire face masks, the Force3 Defender. The Defender is truly an amazing technological creation that will revolutionize equipment forever.
Independent tests conducted by one of the four independent National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) approved testing facilities in the world, concluded that nothing comes close to the protection as the Defender. With virtually the same footprint of a traditional mask, the Defender’s patented technology reduces frontal impact forces in most cases.
G-Forces were also reduced with impressive results. Tests included impacts by 70mph softballs and 100mph baseballs.
