Storelli unveils protective head guard for soccer players

As attention to on-the-field head injuries to athletes mounts in all major sports, soccer players of all ages and skill levels will benefit from a revolutionary new head guard introduced by Storelli Sports LLC, the Brooklyn-based protective soccer apparel company. 

The Storelli ExoShield HeadGuard was worn twice in the last week by a major English Premier League star in his successful return from injury, and now all players around the world will have access to this revolutionary new product.

Tests:  Product outperforms other head guards by up to 182 percent

Third-party protection tests conducted earlier this year indicate that Storelli's patent-pending ExoShield HeadGuard, featuring foams used extensively by the U.S. military, outperformed other soccer head guards currently on the market by up to 182 percent in reducing the force of impact, depending on collision speed.

To ensure a high standard of product performance, impact testing was executed on a head-and-neck assembly mounted to an industry-standard monorail system from the front, side and rear of the head guard at collision speeds replicating – and exceeding – playing conditions, and also at varying temperatures.  As compared with wearing no head guard protection at all, Storelli's new head guard reduces the force of impact by up to 59 percent, depending on collision speed.

ExoShield incorporates same state-of-the-art foam used by U.S. military to protect soldiers

The patented foam which lines Storelli's head guard is made from the same formulation as foam used to line the helmets of U.S. military personnel, notes Dr. Jing Liang, PhD in biophysics and director of product development and co-founder of Storelli. 

"This is the same class of material used as liners in standard issue Army helmets to protect soldiers, including many special operation elite forces stationed around the world.  We have designed our head guard with that degree of care in mind -- maximum efficiency and comfort for protecting all soccer players."

Storelli's head guard is worn much like a head band, wider in the back than front, and is offered in six sizes to fit virtually any head.  The product has a stealth, unconventional stylistic look, and features top of the line moisture-wicking fabric.
