Guardian Sports adds 2nd Skull Headgear to Better Protect Players in All Sports

Since 2011, Guardian Caps have been used by over 100,000 athletes in the NFL, college, high school, and youth football programs with incredible success in better protecting players during practices and making sure helmets and players were fresh for gameday. 

We are now excited to announce that we will be expanding our product line to better protect your players whether it’s gameday, practice, or even a pick up game in ANY SPORT!

The creators of the Guardian Cap and PEARL lacrosse balls will now be offering 2nd Skull protective headgear – the newest additions to our line of sports safety equipment.

“We are thrilled to partner with Guardian Sports, a well-established and proven innovator in the athletic equipment space” said Greg Czerpak, President & Chief Operating Officer of 2nd Skull.  “We have tremendous respect for the Guardian Sports team and brand and are delighted to add to their exceptional catalog of protective products” added Czerpak.

Guardian Sports will now offer the following impact-absorbing products from 2nd Skull:

  • The 2nd Skull® Pro-Series Cap: designed with a grant from the National Football League, this Cap is the ultimate in thin, lightweight, and breathable protection. Measuring just 2 millimeters thick and weighing less than 2.4 ounces, the 2nd Skull® Pro-Series Cap can be worn in helmeted and non-helmeted sports.
  • The 2nd Skull® Pro-Series Band: designed in collaboration with professional soccer players in Spain, this Band provides 360-degree protection through a unique 5-panel design. Measuring 4 millimeters thick, and weighing less than 1.4 ounces, the 2nd Skull® Pro-Series Band can add protection in all non-helmeted sports and activities.
  • The 2nd Skull® Cap: this cap offers the same trusted level of protection as the 2nd Skull® Pro-Series Cap just with a different fabric.  Measuring 2 millimeters thick and weighing less than 2.6 ounces, the 2nd Skull Cap can be worn in helmeted and non-helmeted sports.

At Guardian Sports, we are constantly innovating and exploring new ways to improve sport/player safety and 2nd Skull allows us to do just that. 2nd Skull products feature a thin layer of XRD® impact-absorbing technology for superior protection. The protective material is soft and flexible at rest, but instantaneously hardens under pressure, helping to mitigate sudden impacts. The thin profile also makes helmet fitting a seamless experience.

“At Guardian Sports our priorities are improving athlete safety and performance through equipment innovation. The 2nd Skull brand and mission aligns perfectly with these objectives and we are excited to help bring new head protection items to our customers and partners” said Erin Hanson, Owner & Chief Executive Officer of Guardian Sports. “Both organizations share a true passion for protecting athletes” said Hanson, “This partnership further aligns two companies with similar pasts and priorities.” Beyond winning development funding from the NFL, both organizations also have strong relationships with the players associations of the National Football League and Major League Baseball and combine to boast an innovation portfolio that totals 14 granted patents.” – Erin Hanson CEO, Guardian Sports

Why? It’s actually pretty simple.

Here at Guardian Sports, we are always striving to better protect athletes everywhere. As pioneers in player safety, in both football (Guardian Caps) and lacrosse (PEARL), Guardian Sports is extending this protection to better protect ALL PLAYERS in ALL sports with 2nd Skull’s protective skull Caps and Bands.
