Seahawks | Wistrom to wear special helmet in the Super Bowl
Mon, 30 Jan 2006 16:02:50 -0800

PRNewswire.com reports Seattle Seahawks DE Grant Wistrom will wear a helmet specially designed by Schutt Sports in the Super Bowl. Designed with insights from an ongoing, NFL-sponsored study that is providing new information about mild traumatic brain injuries, the Schutt DNA helmet exclusively features military-developed technology: new-to-the-game SKYDEX technology developed for Army paratrooper helmets and Navy SEAL boats. The Schutt DNA's spherical shell is designed to make for a more glancing blow, particularly on helmet-to-helmet contact. "Concussions have made guys more aware. Any advancement in helmet technology and guys are more excited," Wistrom said. "Some players will ask, 'Why do you wear that?,' and I tell them to put it on. Then they get it."

I've been waiting to see something like this for years -- while they are at it get rid of all the the plastic pads etc. How about kevlar or carbon fiber instead? It would be much thinner and a lot lighter = faster play.

I know that a lighter helmet would make for a lot happier football guys during the Texas summer.
