A look at the next generation of football helmets
Finally, we might have a real working football helmet called the ZERO1 that might cushion the blow that is the car crash during football
Helmets have come a long way since I played. It’s almost silly to think that it took this long to figure something like this out. This upcoming season, there could be several NFL players wearing them. I have to say that this model sure beats the concussion helmets they wore back in the day.
25 NFL teams have purchased the ZERO1 helmet so far. The science of the helmet makes a ton of sense, and it doesn’t look really stupid which is a plus. If my brain barely worked anymore, there would have been no chance I would have wore that cap.
The ZERO1 helmet was made by a Seattle-based company Vicis and will distribute them to all practices this spring.
