TESTING 1 2 3…

• Hex 9mm and 14mm vs. other brands’ equivalent pad densities
• Football helmet weighted for the average human head (not your buddy’s giant mel)
• Helmet dropped from a height of one meter onto a super sensitive Force Platform to measure impact attenuation and protective characteristics
• Initial drops are performed without any cushioning to establish a starting point (that’ll leave a mark)
• Subsequent drops are done on a variety of samples from each brand


McDavid Hex consistently absorbed more impact pressure than our frequently “celebrated” competitors. Hex is designed to take hit after hit after hit. Our protective readings remained high upon repeated bangs, pops and knocks—in other words—all game long.


You are best protected with Hex. You are best equipped to play harder and longer with Hex. You are more likely to succeed with Hex.
