- Product Warning
WARNING. You or any player in any sport can sustain a head injury with even the very best head protection. Unequal pads cannot prevent concussions or eliminate the risk of serious head or neck injuries. Scientists have not reached agreement on how the results of impact absorption tests relate to concussions. Independent third party accredited lab tests of Unequal supplemental head pads, headbands and body pads (the “Unequal Product” and collectively referred to as “Unequal Products”), showed a reduction of the Severity Index and G-Force in most cases. Results may vary depending on: helmet or pad type & style; sport / activity; contact surface; temperature; impact levels; linear & angular forces; helmet or pad manufacturer; and user’s health. No helmet or padding, including Unequal Product(s), can prevent serious head, brain, body and/or neck injuries including paralysis or death a person might incur while participating in activities, games, or sports. Do not butt, ram, spear, or strike an opposing player. Contact with a person, object, surface, or projectile can result in severe head, body or neck injuries, paralysis or death to You and possible injury to your opponent. This contact may result in concussion- brain injury or severe bodily injury, which no helmet or body pad can prevent. Symptoms of such injuries include: loss of consciousness or memory, confusion, bruising, redness, dizziness, headache, nausea, pain, soreness, discoloration, numbness or tingling. If You have any of these symptoms, immediately stop playing and report them to your coach, trainer, and/or parents. Do not play or return to the activity, sport, game, or practice until all symptoms are gone and You have received medical clearance. Ignoring this WARNING may lead to another and more serious or fatal injury. Unequal Product(s) are not bullet proof, bullet resistant, stab resistant, or stab proof. Remember helmets and body pads do have limitations. They are your second line of defense. Obey the Rules and Code of Conduct of your particular sport, game or activity. Being careful and responsible is your first priority. Use common sense and practice safe sports.
FDA Disclaimer. Unequal Product(s) have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. Unequal Products are not intended to diagnose, mitigate, treat, cure, or prevent disease.

In the event that any provision of this Release is determined to be invalid, unenforceable or unlawful, such invalidity, unenforceability or unlawfulness shall not affect any other provisions of this Release, and the Release shall be construed as if the challenged provision had never been contained herein.
DISCLAIMER: Unequal reduces concussion risk, compared to no head protection. Leading medical doctors, PhD’s and scientists have concluded that a reduction in acceleration correlates with a reduction in concussion risk. Any player in any activity, game, or sport, can sustain a head injury even with head protection, and that no helmet, pad or Unequal product can prevent concussions or eliminate the risk of these injuries.
