What is EAS?
Bownet set out to design a portable goal that was simple to set up and take down and could outlast any other portable net on the market. They replaced the rigid frame goal posts with flexible composite rods, specially engineered base and the highest quality elastic netting. Thus, The Energy Absorption System was created.
The first net was built by hand by Jack Lucas in 2002. He eventually built 60 and sold the first 40 of out his garage. This was the 4x8 soccer goal specifically designed for 3V3 competition. Unfortunately, the timing for Jack to start a new company was not good due to work and family obligations and as it can be with many start ups. Having the funding, the right people, and the timing are extremely important for a company launch. Years later, in 2007, he met he met Dave Nelson.
