ELEVATED ON-FIELD VISIBILITY

Designed to provide optimized vertical and horizontal sightlines and give the athlete maximum situational awareness so they can perform at their best on the field.
A TRULY MULTI-LAYERED HELMET SYSTEM
Flexible outer shell technology, exclusive to VICIS helmets, allows the ZERO2 to respond like no other helmet on the market. By deforming like a car bumper, impact forces are absorbed at the point of contact, before they reach the head. The result is not only groundbreaking protection, but a helmet that feels like no other.
Optimized for the ZERO2, VICIS RFLX 2.0 continues to leverage buckling structures, but has evolved the design with an array of columns interconnected by thin, flexible walls. The result is greater impact performance at a lower weight, allowing VICIS to further tune impact performance in key locations.
The inner shell has been engineered through data collected from hundreds of head shapes to optimize fit accuracy, maximize player comfort, and accommodate a wider range of players.
Raising the bar for personalized comfort and secure fit, the VICIS DLTA pod system is comprised of two layers: impact on the RFLX side, and comfort against the player's head. Fully interchangeable pads across 6 locations in multiple thicknesses translates to virtually unlimited customization without the need for air bladders. Updated pod materials provide upgraded comfort and improved durability.
ZERO2 Youth Elite helmets come with extra DLTA Pods. The standard ZERO2 Youth does not come with extra DLTA Pods.
