Super Bowl players' custom helmets start with a 3D scan

Page
At the Super Bowl on Sunday, 20 players will hit the field wearing Riddell Precision-Fit helmets. What's special about this gear is that they fit the contours of the athlete's head — down to the half-millimeter. Riddell, which has been making helmets and other protective sports gear since 1929, unveiled the technology behind its Precision Fit helmets in early 2017. This season, 150 NFL players wore the protective gear. The company starts by sending a technician to take multiple 3D light scans of a player's head. One scan is done of the player while they wear a tight neoprene hood. Another is performed with the player wearing a helmet at the exact angle they like to wear it during a game.

VIDEO: Ohio State Harnessing Precision-Fit Helmet Technology

Page
Football is a violent game, and Ohio State is doing every thing it can to protect its athletes. To exemplify this, the football program released a video Wednesday afternoon detailing its helmets. They feature Riddell's Precision-Fit technology, which debuted in 2017 and was first used by Colgate University back in March. "Riddell reps come in and do a 3-D scan of every guy's head," head football equipment manager Kevin Ries explains. "Each Precision-Fit helmet is customized to each individual player that is then finalized with a signature in the back of the helmet so you know it's designed for this individual player."

The Football Helmet Of The Future

Page
Innovation in sports often follows calamity. Nearly 80 years ago, Riddell invented the plastic football helmet to slow an epidemic of broken skulls. Now, amid the growing realization of how rampant brain injuries are in the sport, the company is reimagining the football helmet, pushing beyond protection into detection. And that’s meant reinventing itself as something more like a tech company—not an easy task for an 88-year-old business built on manufacturing. “This is a very big bet for us,” says Thad Ide, who runs Riddell’s research and development arm. “We think that in a few years, it will be hard to buy a helmet without sensors. We’re all in.”
