Protective Helmet Important Features Results

Posted by Joe Blair on Thursday, March 15th, 2012 | No Comments »

The results are in from the question we asked about “what is the most important feature you look for when purchasing a new protective helmet?”  54% of our respondents look for the best impact protection followed by 33% saying they look for comfort.

Due to the amount of documented injuries to high profile athletes over the past few years, concussions have become a major topic for leagues and manufacturers.  Numerous studies on concussions have been performed and will continue to take place around the world each day.  As athletes get bigger, faster and stronger, it is important that the technology behind the equipment available evolves with these athletes.

As our study shows, protection is the most important feature when looking for protective helmets but designers can not forget about comfort and weight.
