FOOTBALL HELMET TECHNOLOGY SHOULD ABSORB IMPACT, NOT JUST REDIRECT IT.

Redirection

STANDARD FOOTBALL HELMETS HAVE A NUMBER OF SERIOUS PROBLEM AREAS:
HELMETS REDIRECT IMPACT

On impact, most helmets will spread the force across the surface of the helmet. This means that the impact itself is spread across the surface of the player’s head, redistributing the energy instead of absorbing it.

FACE MASKS DON'T CUSHION IMPACT

Hits directly to the face mask are not absorbed at all with most football helmets on the market. If the football player holds his head at the wrong angle, a blow to the face mask could cause serious neck injury or concussion.

HELMET HAS VULNERABLE POINTS

Air bladders and shock systems in standard helmets do not line the entire interior of the helmet. If an impact does not land precisely on an air bladder or a shock, the impact is more likely cause injury to the football player.

WEIGHT CAUSES FATIGUE

Weighty football helmets can cause players’ necks to fatigue. If a football player lowers their head during a tackle because their neck is fatigued, the force of impact on the helmet could cause serious head and/or neck injury, paralysis, or even death.

Absorption

SG’S INNOVATIVE FOOTBALL HELMET DESIGN PROVIDES BETTER PROTECTION.
HELMETS ABSORB IMPACT

On impact, the SG football helmet absorbs force. Because of the strong outer shell and the absorbing interior foam lining, research has shown the SG helmet to be a safer alternative to other football helmets currently available on the market.

FACE MASKS CUSHION IMPACT

Hits directly to the face mask are cushioned because of SG’s innovative mask clips. The mask clips are equipped with a durable shock system that will absorb frontal impact and minimize the force of a blow directly to the face mask.

HELMET PROVIDES COMPLETE PROTECTION

Because SG’s patented foam lines the entire interior of the football helmet, any impact from any direction has the same effect. This solid lining also allows for a more secure fit.

LIGHTWEIGHT DESIGN FOR BETTER PERFORMANCE

The SG helmet is half the weight of other football helmets on the market. The helmet is made from lighter and much stronger materials than the standard helmet. Since this helmet is so light, players will not have as much  neck fatigue, and can more easily follow recommended tackling techniques.

THE MATERIALS USED IN THE SG HELMET ARE STRONGER, LIGHTER, & ABSORB IMPACT.

THE SG HELMET PROVIDES BETTER PROTECTION THAN ANY OTHER FOOTBALL HELMET ON THE MARKET.

Severity index (SI) is a unit of measure used as a standard to assess the performance of football helmets created by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE). In order for a football helmet to be certified, it is required to per- form under a SI of 1200 when tested at certain velocities.

Severity Index For Adult Helmets

When tested at velocities similar to that which a player would experience during a football game, the SG helmet outperformed competitors by 48% for adult sizes.

Severity Index For Youth Helmets

For youth helmets, the SG football helmet outperformed Riddell by 48% in the severity index. This means that the SG helmet affords young players superior protection.

 

In addition to providing superior protection, the SG helmet is also half the weight. Standard football helmets are heavy, and can strain the necks of young players.

IT’S TIME TO PROTECT OUR FOOTBALL PLAYERS.

There have been too many head injuries. It’s time to revolutionize the game by switching to a helmet that provides better protection.

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.
