PLEASE READ THIS FIRST

  1. Failure rates of competitive helmets at reconditioning can range between 25%-35% meaning each failed helmet will need to be replaced with a new helmet. LIGHT Helmets will guarantee that each LIGHT helmet will pass its first 2-year reconditioning and the failure rate at each subsequent 2-year reconditioning is expected to only be 5% thereby saving a team considerable money in acquiring replacement helmets.
  2. Some competitors require reconditioning to be performed annually while LIGHT Helmets are only required to be reconditioned once every two years thereby saving significant annual costs.
Assumed Lifecycle is 5 years

3 Data shows that during the lifetime of a competitive helmet there is a 25-35% chance it will need to be replaced during the reconditioning process. Data further shows that a LIGHT Helmet only has a 5% chance it will need to be replaced during the reconditioning process.
