VICIS's ZERO1 is a 21st century football helmet that is safer, sexier and more functional than the relics you see on football fields today.
At the core of VICIS’s innovation is the concept of local deformation. Designed to absorb the impact of a collision, the outer layers of the helmet slow acceleration and protect precious cargo, the brain.
VICIS recognized early on that superior technology alone does not guarantee a success and reached out to Artefact to design a helmet that is as functional as it is iconic. We embraced the opportunity to collaborate on the design of the ZERO1, a helmet poised to improve player safety while increasing comfort and performance.
From the chinstrap to the facemask, the comfort liner to the occipital support – every part of the football helmet needs to meet the specific and often divergent requirements of players and equipment managers. Our goal was to develop a design that is modern yet classic, highlighting the innovation of VICIS technology, while leveraging the components that have historically proven to work. We emphasized the essential over ornamental to create a helmet that is trusted, sleek, bold and iconic.
The ZERO1 is not only a reflection of the values of the VICIS brand, but of the game itself - classic, bold, and unforgettable.
