There are ever more head injuries in soccer – Headstrong offers targeted protection.
Studies show that soccer, is actually among the sports where head injuries are most common. Headstrong is a protective head guard made for soccer players. It offers protection to the back and the side of the head where injuries are most likely – but the thin front panel allows for unimpeded heading. Headstrong is tight fitting, comfortable and stays in place - allowing for better header training and game performance.
Designed specifically for soccer and comfort
With Headstrong we focused on making a head guard that was comfortable to wear for the whole match. Headstrong is a protective headband that is designed to be light, flexible and seamless to use. Thanks to the inner silicone padding the headband stays in place whether you’re dry or wet, and whether you have long, short or no hair. We also know how important the heading is to the game, and that is why we have developed our headband with a thin front panel that does not impede the player's heading performance.
Best-in-class impact reduction
The Headstrong protective headband offers best-in-class impact reduction thanks to our patented IMPALT technology. The Headstrong head guard is padded at the sides and back with our IMPALT silicone gel core encapsulated by a layer of memory foam. These are the most sensitive head areas – and data shows that around 80% of serious head injuries in soccer are caused by impact to those areas.
What is IMPALT?
Headstrong’s crucial function is the effective head protection it offers. The headguard is padded with cores of IMPALT (Impact Absorbing Liquid Technology), an innovative, patented silicone gel that absorbs and diverts the energy of impact at the sides and back of the head, significantly reducing the risk of head injury after knocks to your head’s most exposed and sensitive areas.The IMPALT core absorbs contact – and even hard impact.
Endorsed by professional soccer players
Headstrong is already being used in training and in games by multiple professional soccer players in the Danish top league. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and they all praise the headguard for its comfort and lightweight design. 'I have used a number of different headbands and helmets over time. After having both trained and played games with it, Headstrong has become my favorit. It is comfortable, stays in place and is the only headband that is made for heading' - Rasmus Minor Petersen, Centre-back in the Danish Superliga.
