Rawlings' Coolflo Batting Helmet Gets a Clear-Coat Finish

No matter the paint job, Rawlings' Coolflo batting helmet is the way to go.

Try Rawlings' Coolflo helmet with a clear-coat finish (model number CFBHN), available in black, cardinal, dark green, light gold, maroon, navy, pink, purple, royal, scarlet or white.

This helmet is pre-drilled for these facemasks: SBRWG, RWG2, and SBRWG2.

It's made with moisture-wicking, anti-bacterial Pro-Dri Plus lining.

• NOCSAE® baseball batting helmet standards involve tests of baseballs fired from a cannon at 60 mph at a distance of 2 ft, which is roughly equivalent to an impact resulting from a pitch speed of 68 mph at a distance of 60 ft.
• The Rawlings Performance Rating™ System is based on pitch speeds at a distance of 60 ft.
• NOCSAE® standards require that a batting helmet withstand all test impacts at an established peak severity index (SI). Helmets also must survive all test protocols substantially intact and ready for use.
• The NOCSAE® standard is aimed at reducing the risk of skull fractures. The standard has not been correlated with reducing the risk of concussions from such impacts.

WARNING: Severe head or neck injury, including paralysis or death may occur to you despite using this helmet. No helmet can prevent all head injuries or any neck injuries a player might receive while participating in baseball or softball.
