TOP RANKED HELMET

FOR EFFECTIVE IMPACT FORCE REDUCTION

The NFL and NFLPA conducts extensive testing on helmets each year. In 2017, one helmet received the highest ranking for impact force reduction—VICIS ZERO1.*

*NFL/NFLPA tests are designed to represent helmet performance in impacts experienced in professional football.

INSIDE-OUT INNOVATION

VICIS is using the latest advances in engineering and medicine to rethink the football helmet from the ground up.

VICIS is working with the NFL’s greatest, past and present (and even some of their parents), to create the future of the football helmet.

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.

THE RFLX LAYER®

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 Leonhard Euler, a Swiss physicist in the 1700s.

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®

The AXIS Fit System determines the relationship between head length and breadth measurements (commonly called an “aspect ratio”) for a player and facilitates selection of an appropriately sized ARCH Shell. There are 3 different ARCH shells available, providing outstanding fit and additional protection.

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.

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.

ENGINEERED FOR PERFORMANCE

THE VICIS ZERO1 ISN’T JUST BUILT FOR PROTECTION
– IT’S A TOTAL REIMAGINATION OF THE FOOTBALL HELMET

IMPACT REDUCTION

VICIS ZERO1 can be custom fit in minutes, giving the helmet improved comfort and superior stability.

CUSTOM FIT IN MINUTES

VICIS ZERO1 comes with over 300 possible fit combinations, giving the helmet improved comfort and superior stability.

SUPERIOR HEAT DISSIPATION

VICIS ZERO1 releases heat more efficiently relative to other helmets, keeping the player cooler on hot days.
