The VICIS ZERO1 is a highly-engineered football helmet designed to reduce impact forces. It is the culmination of a 3-year, $20M research and development effort shaped by some of the World's leading Athletes, Engineers, and Neurosurgeons.
A HELMET’S FOREMOST JOB IS PROTECTION
VICIS engineers and neurosurgeons have developed a multilayered, highly-engineered helmet design that mitigates linear and rotational impact forces.
THE LODE SHELL®
Absorbs impact load by locally deforming, like a car bumper. Automotive safety engineers have used local deformation to protect people for decades. We’re the first to bring this proven innovation to football helmets.
Employs a highly-engineered columnar structure that moves omni-directionally to reduce linear and rotational forces. The columnar geometry used in our RFLX layer is based on principles first described by 18th century Swiss physicist, Leonhard Euler.
The LODE Shell and RFLX layer work together to reduce impact forces, leveraging well established engineering principles and materials long-used in stringent aerospace and automotive applications. Tested to withstand multiple seasons of play, the VICIS ZERO1 delivers 21st century innovation built on bedrock scientific principles.
THE ARCH SHELL®
There are 3 different ARCH shells available, providing outstanding fit based on head circumference and additional protection for the athlete.
THE FORM LINER®
The FORM Liner is designed to work in unison with the ARCH Shell. Constructed of special foams and waterproof textiles, the FORM Liner conforms to the player’s unique head topography and distributes pressure uniformly around the head. There are 4 different FORM Liners available to enable unparalleled comfort and precise fit.
THE VICIS ZERO1 IS A HIGHLY-ENGINEERED FOOTBALL HELMET DESIGNED TO REDUCE IMPACT FORCES. IT IS THE CULMINATION OF A 3-YEAR, $20M RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT EFFORT SHAPED BY SOME OF THE WORLD’S LEADING ATHLETES, ENGINEERS, AND NEUROSURGEONS.
HOW IT WORKS
The ZERO1’s multiple layers work together to slow impact forces. The helmet features a soft outer shell and an underlying layer of columns designed to mitigate collisions from multiple directions.
The ZERO1 reduces head impact severity better than any helmet on the market based on an algorithm developed for professional football to assess helmet performance. This calculation incorporates both linear (straight-ahead) and rotational forces, while others only consider linear impact performance. Supporting test results were generated by one of the leading biomechanics laboratories in North America.
