Say hello to the next generation of sports equipment with an improved protective mechanism and a concept that lies on the new capabilities offered by 3D fit-customization, advanced testing methods, and additive manufacturing.
Our concept lies in a unique liner made of complex and organic networks of lattice structures optimized for impact absorption.
INNOVATIVE AM MANUFACTURING
AM offers new freedom in architecture and expands the range of possibilities for design, production, and performance of novel architectural forms.
FINE-TUNED DIRECTIONAL BEHAVIOR
Our structure has an anisotropic mechanical behavior with different responses under different directions, optimized for linear and rotational impact absorption.
Through our automated customization software, the helmets will be perfectly fitted to the player's head, allowing for maximum comfort and protection.
Our laboratory offers virtual testing using finite element methods to compare a very large number of helmets designs and accelerate the optimization of protective structures.
The NFL Helmet Challenge is an innovation challenge that aims to stimulate the development by experts, innovators and helmet manufacturers of a new helmet for professional players that outperforms, based on laboratory testing, all helmets currently worn by NFL players.
THE KOLLIDE HELMET
The most advanced, performant, and safest football helmet in the world.
THE KOLLIDE HELMET
Our goal is to bring the most advanced, performant, and safest football helmet in the world.
HIGHER PROTECTION & PERFORMANCE
Patented optimized lattice structure ensure better mechanical response to all types of impact.
& HIGHLY BREATHABLE
3D printed materials provide unparalleled protection to weight ratio and air circulation, improving athletes’ comfort and performance.
PHYSIOLOGY & PLAYSTYLE CUSTOMIZATION
Kollide helmets are customized to better protect their athletes according to their physiology and position.
VIRTUAL DESIGN VALIDATION
Each individual helmet is digitally tested and its lattices are optimized to ensure enhanced protection and compliance to standards.
Our team combines the expertise of academic researchers and four innovative Montreal-based companies, each with unique and complementary experiences in 3D-printing, Sports equipment Design, and Validation testing.
Four separate entities merged as one, and geared toward a singular vision: taking innovation, high-end research methods, and scientific evidence to create the best sports equipment possible.
