SG’S BACKGROUND: PROTECTION FOR THE WORLD’S FASTEST ATHLETES

IN FOOTBALL HELMET DESIGN, BOTH PROTECTION & PERFORMANCE ARE CRITICAL

FOUNDER OF SG HELMETS BILL SIMPSON BEGAN AS A PIONEER IN THE RACING SAFETY BUSINESS.

Bill Simpson is an American race car driver who quickly became aware of the safety issues in racing after an accident that left him injured. After his accident, he dedicated his career to developing safety technology in the auto racing industry. His innovative designs and inventions have changed the auto racing industry forever, saving countless lives and improving racing safety.

AFTER ATTENDING AN INDIANAPOLIS COLTS GAME, SIMPSON WAS SHOCKED AT THE LACK OF PROTECTION PROVIDED BY MODERN HELMETS.

Simpson knew he had to do something. It became clear to him that protection was not enough of a focus in the game of football or in current football helmet design. Because Simpson had an extensive history of protecting athletes from impacts, he knew he could create a solution that would provide superior protection for football players.

SIMPSON WANTED TO USE HIS BACKGROUND TO ENHANCE AMERICA’S GREATEST SPORT.

THE GAME HAS EVOLVED OVER THE LAST CENTURY. FOOTBALL HELMET DESIGN HAS NOT EVOLVED AS QUICKLY.

PLAYERS ARE BIGGER. PLAYS ARE FASTER. IMPACTS ARE STRONGER.

TRULY IMPACTING THE GAME MEANS STARTING FROM SCRATCH

AIR BLADDERS, SHOCK SYSTEMS, & BONNETS HAVE PROVEN TO BE INEFFECTIVE

THE RESULT: IT’S NOT JUST A NEW MODEL, IT’S A NEW INVENTION

OLD HELMETS REDIRECT ENERGY. SG HELMETS ABSORB IT.

CURRENT HELMETS

  • Dense, heavy plastic shell that slows movements and provides only basic protection.

 

  • Cushioning systems that use only air and redirect impact.

 

  • Heavy metal face masks that strain the neck and shoulders.

 

  • Weight of 5-6 pounds, straining neck and inhibiting athletic performance.

 

  • Poor fit means players’ heads jostle inside the helmet.

 

  • Old technology repackaged to seem new.

SG HELMETS

  • Carbon fiber and Kevlar® shell that is light and ultra-strong.

 

  • NASA-licensed foam that absorbs impact instead of redirecting it.

 

  • Light chrome-moly face mask that balances the helmet and makes movements easy.

 

  • Weight of two and a half pounds, improving both athletic speed and protection.

 

  • Multiple sizing options and fit pad kit ensure secure fit.

 

  • Brand new technology not seen in any other helmet on the market.

WELCOME TO SG HELMETS

I understand that no helmet, practice apparatus, or helmet pad can completely prevent or eliminate the risk of concussions or other serious head injuries while playing sports. Researchers have not reached an agreement on how the results of impact absorption tests relate to concussions. No conclusions about a reduction of risk or severity of concussive injury should be drawn from impact absorption tests.  By entering this site, you acknowledge this statement.
