The Guardian Cap is backed by science and has been tested by multiple labs such as Biocore, Stanford University, Oregon Ballistic Laboratories, The University of Alberta, Wayne State University, etc. The Guardian Cap also won the NFL HeadHealthTECH Challenge I. It is now mandated for use by the NFL and CFL in practices. The most recent independent studies (Biocore Labs and Stanford University) show an average reduction of 10%-25% of HARM – head acceleration response metric.
Benefits of The Guardian Cap
There are extensive benefits of wearing a Guardian Cap which is being recognized through the football teams across the nation.
Lightweight: only 7 ounces and many players state that they do not notice a difference with it on their helmet
One-size-fits-all: fits all sizes from youth to adult
Moves Independently: four elastic straps attach the Cap to the helmet allowing for shifts at impact to redirect the energy
Keeps the helmet cooler: reduces radiant heat up to 20 degrees
Quiet: dampens sound waves and vibrations to remove the loud “crack” of the helmet
Slick: surface friction less than painted helmet shells
Preserves helmet: less wear and tear on helmet paint, decals and flex panels
Reduces HARM “head acceleration response metric”: an average reduction of 10%-25% depending on impact velocity
