The VICIS ZERO1 is the Top-Ranked helmet for reducing impact severity for the third straight year, as named by the NFL/NFLPA. The ZERO1 performed better than all other helmets in the testing, as it received a 5-Star Rating.
Each year, the NFL and NFLPA partner with an independent laboratory to extensively test football helmets used in the NFL. The protocol determines which helmets best reduce head impact severity.
The tests, designed jointly by NFL and NFLPA-appointed biomechanical engineers, simulate a subset of concussion-causing impacts sustained by NFL players during games to determine which helmets best reduced head impact severity in those conditions. The study continues to measure rotational velocity and acceleration as part of a combined metric to evaluate helmets.
