Please call for other shipping options.When Metolius sets out to make their Crash Pads, their #1 priority was to make the best possible landing zone. So they put a lot of time and energy into researching the foam combinations which would absorb the most energy. Result, a combination of open and closed-cell foam. Open cell foam is a great shock absorber, but by itself, it takes a very thick piece to keep from bottoming out. Metolius added a layer of firmer, closed-cell on top of the open-cell to spread the force out, producing a firm shock absorber and comfortable landing. Due to this superior foam combo (energy-absorbent and long-lasting), Metolius has come to be known as having the best high-ball pad out there.
