George Kittle is back and he’s switched into a new helmet: the Vicis Zero2 Trench. He previously wore the Riddell Speedflex.
The Vicis Zero2 Trench is the first position-specific helmet on the market and built for lineman. The Zero2 Trench is a version of the regular Zero2 but with an extra frontal pad. This unique pad is built to protect against the low-velocity impacts lineman experience every snap. Being one of the best blocking TEs in football, this helps cushion the blows that Kittle faces when blocking. It’s definitely a strange looking helmet but also the most protective lid out there according to the NFLPA and the VT Helmet Rating Scale.
Also, if you want to get the Vicis Zero2 Trench for yourself, they start at $999.99.
