Washington to be one of two programs wearing latest helmet tech

  Washington will use Vici's Zero1 helmet model for the 2016 season.

Washington will be one of two NCAA programs wearing the latest in helmet technology, as a Huskies' anonymous donor footed the bill for the entire team to be outfitted with the Vicis Zero1 model helmet. Vicis, which was born out of the UW’s New Ventures Facility, has developed a multilayered, highly-engineered helmet that mitigates linear and rotational impact forces.

Developed by neurosurgeons and engineers at Vicis, the Zero1 model uses four layers to absorb more impact and provide greater protection on the field. Using the Vicis Axis Fit System, variations in head sizes are accounted for and each player is properly fit for a more comfortable and protective helmet. The helmet model offers 12 different sizing combinations.

Washington will sport a traditional gold look on the helmets, paying homage to the design commissioned by the late and legendary head coach Don James.
