This Startup’s 2 Helmets Are Officially the Safest in Football, According to the NFL
April 16, 2018
Seattle-based startup Vicis is on a mission to create a safer football helmet. It’s already had some success: The company’s first product, the Zero1, finished first in the NFL’s annual safety test last year.
The NFL just released its results for 2018, and things are looking even better from Vicis’s perspective: Its updated 2018 model finished first. The second place finisher? Last year’s version. That means the five-year-old startup swept the top two spots on a list made up mostly of helmets from Riddell and Schutt–two legacy companies that as of 2016 owned a combined 90 percent of the U.S. market.
