Company Summary

A Football Helmet Enclosure (FHE) made of PVC Foam and wrapped in Carbon Fiber cloth which makes the helmet safer by absorbing impact.
The FHE provides padding to the exterior of the helmet thus reducing the level of impact from helmet-to-helmet, helmet to body part and helmet-to-ground impacts.
The FHE fits over existing helmets and is attached using the helmets hardware. Riddell Helmets is interested and awaiting Utility Patent Status.

    I am the inventor of the Football Helmet Enclosure. I have funded this venture on my own up until this point but am now looking for an investment partner to help me take this potentially highly profitable product to the marketplace.
