Is Your Helmet Killing Your Game?

RIP-IT IT
Player performance may not solely depend on their equipment, but the gear used is often the slight advantage and edge players need to overcome their opponents. The same goes for a moisture management, comfort, and of course, confidence.

Don't Get Hot Headed


There is a delicate balance when it comes to designing a softball helmet- the helmet must be strong enough to stand up to the wear and tear of competitive play, but also provide proper comfort to promote overall wellness during extended use. A helmet needs to become a natural extension of a player to allow for maximum performance and minimize risks associated with overheating. Looking at the number and placement of air vents is important to assess a helmet's ability to disperse heat.

At RIP-IT we pride ourselves on offering an industry leading 21 air vents strategically placed on the helmet to promote maximum heat management and wellness of the player.

A Sticky Situation


Lets be honest, softball is a hot and sweaty game, and we have some tips players can follow to help deal with excessive sweat. Continual physical exertion under the hot sun for a long period of time causes the body to sweat. While this is good and natural for the body to sustain a proper temperature, it can also cause displeasure and other challenges between the player and their gear.

To help reduce player discomfort while using our helmet RIP-IT introduced moisture-management pads. These lightweight pads are wrapped with Moisture-Management fabric that are designed to pull sweat away from your skin and hair so the helmet will feel incredibly comfortable all game long.

Putting You First

While RIP-IT puts a lot of time and effort into designing a great looking and our primary concern is the performance of the helmet. Each softball helmet we produce meets the NOCSAE Standard and goes through rigorous testing to ensure maximum performance.
