The LIGHT Helmets SS1 is the most innovative protective headgear ever created. Engineered with cutting-edge materials used in the military and aerospace industries, the SS1 protects players and keeps them playing the sports they love.

“Flag football is where I started, FNA is my passion, and identifying the best equipment for the athletes was important to me. The LIGHT SS1 earned the best impact and coverage results ever recorded by the independent helmet rating lab of Virginia Tech. My goal is to ensure the kids learn the games, have fun, and utilize the best equipment available. LIGHT provides that equipment and we are proud to partner with them.”
The SS1’s unprecedented safety performance earned it a 0.00 impact score from the independent testing lab at Virginia Tech - that’s 15x better than the second place headgear.
PROTECTS EVERY PLAYER ON THE FIELD
We also worked with Virginia Tech to test the “hardness” of the SS1 on players not wearing any headgear. Because the SS1 is made with innovative Armor Foam material that is more impact absorbant than the fabrics used by competitors, the impact to the unprotected player is significantly less compared to other headgear. The data shows that the SS1 provides the best protection for the athlete wearing it, as well as those who choose a competitive headgear or may not be wearing protection at all.
CHECK OUT THE STATS
Virginia Tech measured the impact of an unprotected head form being struck with the following headgear at the same velocities and locations of their standard flag football test.
LIGHT SS1: .004
XENITH LOOP: .03 (750% higher than the SS1!)
GAMEBREAKER PRO - .25 (6,250% higher than the SS1!)
The SS1 is made with the same proprietary Armor Foam technology found inside our award-winning LS2 Helmet. The energy-absorbing material minimizes impact and significantly reduces the linear and rotational acceleration of the head while protecting other players that may NOT be wearing head protection.
The shape and styling of the SS1 was modeled after the modern era combat helmet giving the SS1 the highest coverage scores for both flag football and soccer.
We designed the SS1 with maximum comfort in mind. Tested in all environments, the SS1 is super lightweight, breathable and fully adjustable to allow for uncompromised movement and vision on the field.
THE GAME IS EVOLVING
The stats are in: flag football participation is growing rapidly. In fact, some leagues already require players to wear headgear. The SS1 is quickly becoming the new headgear standard for flag football, 7v7, non-helmeted practices, soccer, and other non-contact sports.

THE RESULTS ARE IN
Here's what players, parents and coaches have to say about the SS1.
PROTECTION FOR THE LONG GAME
Accidents and collisions happen, it’s the nature of the game. Not only does the SS1 keep athletes safe, it also gives them the freedom to play more confidently and protect their future in the sport.
