In a high-impact sport like hockey, players need the best protection they can get, especially in the helmet. The just-released Warrior Alpha One helmet delivers a host of technological features designed to prevent or reduce impact injury to the player, in a lightweight and comfortable hockey helmet.
- Omnishock Protection System for lightweight, ultra-rigid protection
- Viconic diffusion plate for effective impact distribution
- EPP foam to safeguard against catastrophic injuries
- Impax soft-touch foam shield for different-sized impacts
- BOA AdaptFit 360 for dialed-in fit precision
- Flow Comfort Polygiene liner for clean, cool wearability
To begin, the Alpha One helmet comes in a true, one-piece shell. This ultra-rigid, one-piece shell is made with high-density plastic that’s extremely stiff but still lightweight. The shell geometry is specifically designed to distribute the effects of impacts, giving players advanced head protection. In addition, the helmet looks sleek and contemporary—the Alpha One provides superior protection in an aesthetically appealing package.
Warrior’s safety-first design approach has resulted in a helmet whose features are both holistic and integrated. The Alpha One design weaves together all shell and liner compositions. A player’s frontal lobe, temples, and occipital areas are typical locations for focused, high impacts. The Alpha One protects all these areas of the head with a lightweight Viconic diffusion plate inside the helmet. The Viconic plate design allows the helmet to absorb single or simultaneous head-on, side, and rear impacts. The Viconic diffusion plate effectively distributes impact and collision force, helping to reduce their intensity.
In addition to the Alpha One’s one-piece design, rigid plastic, and diffusion plate, Warrior includes additional impact protection with its EPP foam. The foam, a key safety feature in the Alpha One, creates a lightweight, protective barrier against catastrophic injury. Additionally, the Warrior’s Impax soft-touch foam shield and Viconic pods are specially designed for impacts of various intensities. Altogether, this OmniShock+ system helmet represents one of the most technologically advanced helmets available.
All this protection technology will perform as it’s intended as long as the helmet fits correctly. BOA’s AdaptFit 360 system gives players control and a customized fit around the entire head. The BOA dial at the back of the helmet allows players to literally dial in the precise fit they’re looking for, allowing them to wear the helmet for extended periods, safely and comfortably.
Inside the helmet, the Alpha One comes with a Flow Comfort polygiene liner and venting system. The removable flow liner pads are treated with polygiene to reduce sweat-related bacteria inside the helmet. They’re designed to dry quickly, as well, to help players stay cool up top even when overheated. The Alpha One shell design is optimized to keep outside air flowing through the helmet interior for additional cool comfort.
Along with all this built-in protection, Warrior includes some cool decals inside the box so you can customize your Alpha One or match your team colors.
Warrior’s Alpha One helmet integrates a whole host of attractive and important safety features. Players will be sure to appreciate Warrior’s superior helmet design and the aesthetic appeal of the 2018 Alpha One.
