One of Ashline's most advanced head-and-neck restraints is the Hybrid. Ashline says he tries to build redundancies into his systems. For example, the Hybrid uses three load paths to hold the head in position. If, for some reason, one load path fails, there are two more to make sure the driver is protected. The Hybrid is also one of the only systems available today that is tested and proven to be just as effective in the much more common 30-degree side impacts as it is in a full frontal impact.
