Rawlings’ NRG Quantum Plus™ Football Helmet Earns Top Safety Rating

Rawlings’ NRG Quantum Plus™ football helmet has received a 5-star rating from Virginia Tech.

The NRG Quantum Plus™ helmet features Rawlings’ Active Impact Absorption (AIA™) and Heat Exchange™ technologies. It also offers a larger offset with increased Custom Comfort Cushion (C3™) performance in high-impact areas.

The three work together to transfer force and heat away from the athlete’s head while actively and passively absorbing impact without structural breakdown to the lightweight absorption system.

In addition to ranking the NRG Quantum Plus™ helmet, the 2012 Virginia Tech Helmet Ratings™ tested 14 other adult football helmets. The NRG Quantum Plus™ was one of just three to receive 5 stars, awarded because it provides a reduction in concussion risk compared to other helmets.

Rawlings’ NRG Quantum Plus™ is NOCSAE certified.

Additional features are:

• Durable surlyn facemask clips
• Carbon steel wire facemask
• High-impact performance polycarbonate shell
• Stainless steel hardware

Rawlings’ NRG Quantum Plus™ football helmets are available in adult sizes S, M and L and in 16 colors.

Facemasks are included but can also be purchased separately. Small and medium helmets use a regular facemask; large helmets use an XL facemask.

WARNING: NO HELMET CAN PREVENT ALL HEAD OR ANY NECK INJURIES A PLAYER MIGHT RECEIVE WHILE PARTICIPATING IN FOOTBALL. Do not use this helmet or faceguard to butt, ram, or spear an opposing player. This is in violation of football rules and such case can result in severe head or neck injuries, paralysis or death to you and possible injury to your opponent. Contact in football may result in CONCUSSION/BRAIN INJURY which no helmet can prevent. Symptoms include: loss of consciousness or memory, dizziness, headache, nausea, or confusion. If you have symptoms, immediately stop playing and report them to your coach, trainer, doctor and parents.  Do not return to a game or practice until all symptoms have resolved for an extended period of time and you have received written MEDICAL CLEARANCE. Ignoring this warning may lead to additional and more serious or fatal brain injury including potentially fatal second impact syndrome. No helmet system can protect you from serious brain and/or neck injuries including paralysis or death. To avoid these risks, do not engage in the sport of football.
