In their search for the most technologically advanced helmets possible for their football players, Northwest Missouri State University found its match with a decision to outfit the Bearcats this upcoming season with VICIS ZERO1 Helmets.
“The VICIS ZERO1 is a game-changer and is delivering a completely new approach to player safety,” says Rich Wright, head football coach at NW Missouri. “We’ve been extremely impressed with the research we’ve seen on the ZERO1, and we’re excited to have our players wearing the helmet this year.”
“Northwest Missouri State University is a powerhouse program, winning six NCAA Division II titles in the last two decades,” says VICIS CEO and co-founder Dave Marver. “We’re honored to protect them in their pursuit for number seven.”
Ranked as the best helmet in the National Football League and surpassing all expectations of the NFL Players Association helmet performance tests, VICIS ZERO1 Helmets are currently equipping athletes on over 400 high school teams. Additionally, more than 110 professional and collegiate teams have committed to the ZERO1 Helmet coming into the 2018 season.
“Our team has worked hard to bring the ZERO1’s breakthrough protective technology to players across the country,” says Marver.
VICIS designs the ZERO1 with a unique structure compared to other helmets on the market. A deformable outer shell and columnar layer slows and reduces impact forces in a similar function to the bumper of a car. The helmet is also priced to be accessible to college and high school programs.
