Fibre-Metal brand Supereight SE2 sensor caps offer multidirectional protection by providing a dual-impact energy control system, which the company says senses the point of impact and activates the appropriate force attenuation system. A blow to the crown of the head activates the hat's crown impact system, while a later blow to the sides, front, or rear of the cap activates the attenuator band, providing protection for the periphery of the cap. In addition, the caps ship fully assembled and meet the ANSI Z89 Type II standard.
