Toward the future of protective gear.

At Kupol we are pioneering the field of 3d printed energy absorbing structures. We enhance safety of sportsmen and workers by leveraging the power of additive manufacturing technologies.

Delevering the unexpected.

Since 2019, Kupol is engage in a unique collaboration with other Canadian researchers in the quest for the ultimate football helmet.

The NFL Helmet challenge as been an unmatched opportunity to show the world what 3D can do to protect the health of athletes but also to celebrate the power of multidisciplinary collaboration.

For two years, Kupol has been developing a novel approach to energy absorption by weaving polymeric strings to form Kollide's proprietary structures.

Getting closer to your body.

Additive manufacturing is more than a trend, it is the future of comfortable performance equipment. 

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) being the most common printing technology, it is only beginning to reveal its true potential. At Kupol, we are 100% devoted to push its boundaries.

Using simultaneously the X, Y & Z axis alongside with custom coding,  we resolve challenges that were once impossible to overcome with traditional slicing.

For instance, printing completely hollow empty shells such as body parts is now possible, thanks to Kupol's work.
