Team Helmet
Cost of Ownership Calculator

PLEASE READ THIS FIRST

  1. Teams must typically purchase more helmets (10% to 20% additional “slack” helmets) than players due to the necessity to match helmets sizes to the specific team make-up. LIGHT Helmets allow equipment managers the ability to quickly and easily change out the liner of a LIGHT Helmet to change the size of that helmet thereby eliminating the need to acquire “slack” helmets.
  2. Failure rates of competitive helmets at reconditioning can range between 15%-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.
  3. 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.

1 LIGHT Helmets can have liners resized at reconditioning so slack inventory is not necessary. This analysis assumes the competitors require 15% of slack inventory for sizing.
2 LIGHT Helmets guarantees the reconditon of the helmet for the initial recondition.
