The revolutionary energy capturing and controlling elbow joint module for mountain biking, snowmobiling, kayaking, crew, and motocross, or riding ATVs and personal watercrafts. The ENER~JOINT is a reflexive, shock-absorbing elbow joint module that provides an infinite variety of lockable, angular elbow orientations and effectively isolates and absorbs forces using a proprietary, flexible, elastomer, shock-absorbing core. A bicycle-style hub with a quick-release locking lever mechanism locks the elbow at any angle. Once locked, the ENER~JOINT flexes under external forces, absorbing shock then reflexing with returned energy to provide a muscle-like, biomechanical response. Several mounting options are available.
