LIGHT Helmets are already being used at various levels of play, making a huge difference to football players of all ages. Many of these players made the switch to Light because they knew they needed better protection and wanted better athletic performance.
Below are a few of the more popular questions we’ve received about our helmets. If you have other questions, we have representatives who are ready to help! Feel free to contact us today.
What kind of ratings has LIGHT Helmets received?
The LIGHT LS2 was tested by Virginia Tech and rated #9, ahead of industry leaders. It was also given a 5-star rating as has every product LIGHT has brought to market.
Is your helmet approved by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE)?
Yes, the LS2 Varsity and Youth helmets are NOCSAE approved for use on the field.
How is the Light Helmet different from other football helmets?
The LIGHT helmet is nothing like other football helmets on the market today. LIGHT's background is in the auto racing and military space. We know all about high-impact sports as well as the need to protect players. When LIGHT decided to build a helmet, we started from scratch. Old materials repackaged as something new and special wasn’t going to work.
Whereas current football helmet models simply redirect the impact, LIGHT helmets contain special components and materials that are designed to absorb impact.
LIGHT Helmets are the lightest football helmets in the world and provide superior protection to the athlete as well as better performance on the field.
Composite shell provides strong, lightweight protection. Interior is lined with patented Armor Foam that retains shape and absorbs impacts. Chromoly tubing in face mask makes helmet balanced and lightweight. Your helmet can be resized within your existing shell.
The bottom line is that LIGHT Helmets provides better protection and allows for superior performance.
What are the Different Sizes?
LIGHT Helmets offers a helmet for both youth and varsity. Each category has multiple sizes available:
YOUTH HELMETS: Medium, Large, Extra Large
VARSITY HELMET: Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large
With our custom fit pad kit, we will have the proper size for any player.
How can I convince my coach to let me wear a light helmet?
LIGHT Helmets not only allow athletes to perform better and be safer on the field but they provide a less expensive option for leagues, teams and schools. LIGHT Helmets guarantees we can refurbish helmets (our competition often requires new helmets to be purchased) and we can resize helmets (within a given shell) so coaches, teams and leagues don’t have to overbuy helmets and have them sit on the shelf due to the number of players that wear any given size changing.
Can I order a custom color or fancy paint design?
Yes, of course. Keep in mind there are additional costs, which we are happy to discuss with you by phone. Most single colors are a nominal charge to have painted.
My team uses a different helmet. Can I wear a light helmet?
The LIGHT Helmet is NOCSAE approved and was awarded a Virginia Tech Five Star Rating. The NOCSAE approval allows you to wear the LS2 VARSITY, LS2 YOUTH COMPOSITE, and LS2 POLYCARBONATE MODELS in competition.
When was LIGHT Helmets Established?
LIGHT Helmets was established in 2011
