With football season in full gear, we thought we’d take a look at the newest technology in safety for our football brethren. The new Riddell 360 employs advanced protective and performance technologies new to the football field. A sleek and stealthy design, enhanced comfort benefits, and strategic protection advancements have earned the 360 helmet the highest possible 5-STAR Helmet Rating from the engineers at Virginia Tech. Key features include:
· An aggressive design with oversized vent holes allows for more air circulation, and a removable, moisture-resistant anti-microbial overliner keeps the head cool and dry
· A hexagonal liner system, energy managing materials and strategically placed face mask hinge clips reduce forces from frontal impacts
· Enhanced occipital lock cradles the head, ensuring the ultimate in fit, comfort and stability
Many props to Riddell for stepping up and protecting football players around the world with the 360 and also looking totally off the hook with the best gear to be found.
The Riddell 360 reflects countless hours of advanced testing and data collection; it is a carefully-crafted combination of technology and performance designed to amplify player prowess when it matters most: on game day. The helmet is currently being adopted by a number of D1 programs including Miami, Iowa, Arkansas, Kansas State, Oregon, Florida, etc. Instead of simply talking about what sets this advanced helmet apart from the pack, Bullz-Eye wanted to show you a short video that speaks directly to the creation and the technology that is behind the product.
