THE FOOTBALL HELMET: IT’S ABOUT PROTECTION & PERFORMANCE

THE GAME HAS EVOLVED. THE FOOTBALL HELMET HAS NOT KEPT UP.

PLAYERS ARE BIGGER. PLAYS ARE FASTER. IMPACTS ARE MORE VIOLENT.

AIR BLADDERS, PLASTIC SHELLS, BUBBLES, SHOCK SYSTEMS, & BONNETS ARE INEFFECTIVE.  LIGHT HELMETS USES THE SAME TECHNOLOGY THAT PROTECTS OUR MILITARY PILOTS AND SPECIAL OPERATIONS FORCES.

OLD HELMETS REDIRECT ENERGY. LIGHT HELMETS ABSORB IT.

traditional Helmets

  • Dense, heavy plastic shell that slows movements, provides only basic protection, and causes fatigue.
  • Cushioning systems that use only air and redirects impact.
  • Heavy metal facemasks that not only strain the neck and shoulders but cause players to lower their head, which is the opposite of safe technique.
  • Weight of 5-6 pounds, straining neck/back and inhibiting athletic performance.
  • Old technology repackaged in a new fancy wrapper to seem new.

LIGHT HELMETS

  • Composite shell that is light and ultra-strong.
  • Armor Foam (initially invented by NASA) that absorbs impact instead of redirecting it.
  • Light chrome-moly facemasks that balances the helmet and makes movements easy.
  • Weight of approximately 2.5 pounds, improving both athletic performance and protection.
  • Multiple sizing options, fitment kit and customized helmets.
  • Technology only seen in auto racing, advanced fighter jets and other military applications.

LIGHT Helmet’s design also make it easier for football players to turn their head during the game to maintain situational awareness, track the ball and other players.

    Are you ready to get better protection and improve your game performance? It’s time to get rid of your heavy plastic helmet that feels just like a boat anchor in the 4th quarter.

    Why LIGHT?

    LIGHT HELMETS WERE DESIGNED TO IMPROVE YOUR PERFORMANCE & PROLONG YOUR CAREER.

    Play lighter…

    Play faster…

    Play Safer…

    Feel the Difference!

    LIGHT HELMETS WERE DESIGNED TO IMPROVE YOUR PERFORMANCE & PROLONG YOUR CAREER.

    You’ve poured everything you have into the game. You sleep, eat, train and breathe football. You’ve put every ounce of energy you have into your two-a-days and your mind seems to always be on the field. You know all of your stats and the stats of your teammates like the back of your hand. This season, the field will be yours, and nothing can stop you…  Your team is counting on you.

    You will not fail, at least give it your best and learn, except an injury, which leaves you on the sideline.

    To minimize that possibility, you need better equipment. You need to protect yourself AND improve your performance. At LIGHT Helmets, we know you pour your heart and soul into the game. There is nothing more devastating or frustrating than being benched for the season because of an injury that could have been prevented if you had simply planned ahead.

    LIGHT Helmets offers a helmet that will not only improve your safety during the game and reduce fatigue but it will also help improve your performance. Your head will feel lighter all game but especially in the fourth quarter when your opponent is tired of dragging that plastic boat anchor around the field on his head. You will sprint, cut and react faster, jump higher and maintain heads up tackling form. Your neck won’t be fatigued from the weight of a steel facemask.

    Weighs less, protects more

    • Weighing just over 2.5 pounds, the Light Helmet is half the weight of other brands. Some helmets when configured for actual play (and not testing) weigh almost seven pounds!
    • Less mass carried on the head=less rotation (whipping) of the neck
    • Less weight on the neck reduces the momentum of the brain as it accelerates and decelerates within the skull upon impact
    • Lightweight also means less fatigue and improved tackling technique (more control of the head). Less weight on your head helps you keep it up when it’s late in the game.

    Only Helmet with an advanced composite shell

    • Made with ultra light, strong materials used at the highest level of auto racing, the military and aerospace industry
    • The only non-plastic NOCSAE-certified helmet in the industry
    • Two piece interior liner is engineered to absorb and dissipate energy from impacts over the entire surface area vs. foam cubes which only absorb impact where the helmet is actually hit
    • Facemasks are made of lightweight chrome moly steel tubing that keeps the weight balance in the center of the helmet

     

    Independently Tested and Approved

    • The National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) has approved LIGHT Helmets to be used in competitive football at all levels.
    • Received the prestigious Five Star Rating by Virginia Tech

        “A lighter weight helmet logically reduces the amount of kinetic energy transmitted to the head, neck and spine while reducing fatigue.”

        FOOTBALL HELMET TECHNOLOGY

        FOOTBALL HELMET TECHNOLOGY SHOULD ABSORB IMPACT, NOT JUST REDIRECT IT.

        REDIRECTION

        STANDARD FOOTBALL HELMETS HAVE A NUMBER OF SERIOUS PROBLEM AREAS:

        HELMETS REDIRECT IMPACT: On impact, most helmets will spread the force across the surface of the helmet. This means that the impact itself is spread across the surface of the player’s head, redistributing the energy instead of absorbing it.

        FACEMASKS DON’T CUSHION IMPACT: Hits directly to the facemask are not absorbed at all with most football helmets on the market. If the football player holds his head at the wrong angle, a blow to the facemask could cause serious neck injury or concussion.

        A HELMET HAS VULNERABLE POINTS: Air bladders and shock systems in standard helmets do not line the entire interior of the helmet. If an impact does not land precisely on an air bladder or a shock, the impact is more likely to cause injury to a football player.

        WEIGHT CAUSES FATIGUE: Weighty football helmets can cause players’ necks to fatigue. If a football player lowers their head during a tackle because their neck is fatigued, the force of impact on the helmet could cause serious head and/or neck injury, paralysis, or even death.

        ABSORPTION

        LIGHT HELMETS’S INNOVATIVE FOOTBALL HELMET DESIGN PROVIDES BETTER PROTECTION.

        HELMETS ABSORB IMPACT: On impact, the LIGHT football helmet absorbs force. Because of the strong outer shell and the absorbing interior foam lining, research has shown the LIGHT helmet to be a safer alternative to other football helmets currently available on the market.

        FACEMASKS CUSHION IMPACT: Hits directly to the facemask are cushioned because of LIGHT Helmet’s innovative mask clips. The mask clips are equipped with a durable shock system that absorbs frontal impact and minimizes the force of a blow directly to the facemask.

        HELMET PROVIDES COMPLETE PROTECTION: Because LIGHT Helmet’s foam lines the entire interior of the helmet, any impact from any direction has the same effect. This solid lining also allows for a more secure fit.

        LIGHTWEIGHT DESIGN FOR BETTER PERFORMANCE: The LIGHT helmet is half the weight of other football helmets on the market. Our helmet is made from lighter and much stronger materials than others are. Since our helmet is so light, players will not have as much neck fatigue, and can more easily follow recommended tackling techniques.

        THE MATERIALS USED IN THE LIGHT HELMET ARE STRONGER, LIGHTER, & ABSORB IMPACT.
