17 Apr SG Helmets Response to NFL Ratings
Brownsburg, Indiana: SG helmets, which are 5 STAR rated through testing by Virginia Tech University and are NOCSAE and SEI certified in 2018, continue to be safe to wear and use. There is no need for concern as SG Helmet models for collegiate, high school and youth football have been tested and proved to be effective, protective and safe. The results of the recent NFL study, as the NFL announced, should not be extrapolated to collegiate, high school or youth football helmets. The NFL study listed SG Varsity and 2.0 models on its “prohibited helmets” list not because of any performance deficiencies but, rather, because SG stopped manufacturing those models and also because SG didn’t have any NFL players who wore the helmet last year.
SG Helmets has always performed and ranked better in testing and in use than our competitors. Indeed, based upon SG’s independent test results and ratings, past and present, SG places players safety at the core of its mission. The protective qualities of SG helmets are well known and are safe to be worn at all levels, including the NFL: a fact proven by the now “banned” models having been previously worn in the NFL with no reported concussions or injuries. Can the same be said about our competitors?
