Technically ‘The VIP’ is not a gel but a viscoelastic polymer called VEteq, this means it is not rubber based. The VIP is designed to absorb shock as opposed to other products which compress and rebound. The VIP has a very high tensile strength. On a molecular level the raw material looks like honeycomb. This also means that under pressure regardless of what forces are applied to it,the product keeps a uniform thickness, in part thanks to our ‘bobble’ design.
Rubber based foams may feel squishy and soft but once compressed that is it. The VIP has a very high tensile strength. On a molecular level the raw material looks like honeycomb.
