Riddell’s Axiom Could be Breakthrough Helmet for Football
Riddell has developed a football helmet that might not be just the next big step in design and player safety, but a major leap. While there has been a focus on position-specific headgear for some time, Axiom’s features are based on data and designed to improve impact response, reduce head impact exposure (HIE), and deliver unprecedented protection. Axiom includes a new fitting system, a redesigned helmet shell platform, reimagined face-mask system and integrated smart helmet technology called InSite — which analyzes and reports on HIE compared to Riddell’s database of 8 million on-field player impacts. Axiom also features a removable visor.
