First introduced in 2003, and superior to traditional foam padding providing better impact absorption, better heat management and better hygienics. It's highly resistant to mold, mildew, fungus and bacteria, while providing a barrier against MRSA and staph concerns.
TPU Cushioning System
We introduced Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU) Cushioning to football in 2003, with the advent of the DNA Pro. Six years later, now in its third generation, TPU Cushioning remains the best performing padding system in football today. In game-like conditions, the DNA Pro+ outperform all the other helmets on the field. It’s proven superior to traditional foam padding in game-like conditions: better impact absorption, better heat management and better hygienics. TPU Cushioning won’t take a compression set, won’t break down (even after thousands of impacts) and is resistant to mold, mildew, fungus and bacteria while providing a barrier against MRSA and staph concern.
Tests Don’t Lie
In head-to-head testing at 105 degree by an independent research lab the TPU cushioning inside the DNA Pro + dramatically out performed the foam cushioning in both the Riddell Speed and Revolution. In fact, the Riddell Speed absorbed 24% less impact than the DNA Pro + while the Riddell Revolution absorbed 44% less impact than the DNA Pro +.
-Riddell Speed: 24% less impact than the DNA Pro +
-Riddell Revolution: 44% less impact than the DNA Pro +
