Following a concussion in the Wild Card round, Nick Bosa has switched to the Vicis 02 Trench helmet. Previously, he was in the Riddell Speedflex.
This helmet is basically the exact same helmet as the Vicis 02 but with an extra external pad. This is the first position specific helmet to ever hit the market. It’s built for lineman. That extra frontal pad is built for the low velocity impact that lineman face every single snap. This is truly the safest helmet on the market for anyone playing in the trenches.
