Masuri Helmets: The Heritage

Born in Cape Town in 1988, the stainless steel grille, which has become commonplace, proved an instant success for Masuri, replacing the existing polycarbonate and heavy coated mild steel grilles.

Somerset batsman Jon Hardy designed the original Masuri helmet grille, who sold the first three to Australia’s 1989 Ashes-winning stars Dean Jones, Geoff Marsh and David Boon.

Masuri has since gone from strength-to-strength, establishing itself as the leading cricket helmet brand on the international cricket scene. Michael Atherton, Graham Gooch and Brian Lara also brought great exposure to the Masuri brand over the years.

Masuri were the first to introduce the titanium visor, fielding visor and wicket keeping helmet. In the cricket helmet industry, Masuri are trend setters, not followers.

Masuri Helmets: The Future

Constantly striving for innovation and performance in an ever-evolving game, Masuri cricket helmets are forever modernising to safeguard cricketers from the risks associated with Twenty20 cricket and modern safety expectations.

The tragic loss of Australia batsman Philip Hughes led to people calling for increased neck protection whilst batting. Masuri responded very quickly to the much-publicised incident, releasing a neck protector – the Masuri Stemguard.

Masuri Cricket Helmet Safety Features & Standards

Cricket helmets now need to comply with much tougher regulations with regards to protecting the face from impact from the ball, after a spate of high-profile professionals succumbed to nasty facial injuries. Former England keeper-batsman Craig Kieswetter was forced to retire from the game after suffering an eye injury whilst batting.

It is now imperative that cricket helmets have a fixed grille. If your helmet is not compliant then you are not maximising your safety.

Masuri helmets have been designed and engineered specifically to comply with the current ICC safety standard (BS7928:2013) to offer greater protection under impact.

Cricket helmets must now include a facial contact projectile test that assesses penetration of the ball through the faceguard, and contact of the faceguard onto the face. These tests must be conducted using realistic bowling speeds, balls and conditions.

Every Masuri cricket helmet goes through rigorous concept-prototype development, and is subjected to high velocity impact testing, which guarantees the finest quality and optimum safety.

Twin shell Technology: How a Masuri Helmet Protects your Head

The energy-absorbing foam in Masuri Vision Series cricket helmets minimises the impact of the ball being transmitted to the head.

By injecting energy-absorbing foam into a cavity between the inner and outer shells, this highly popular cricket helmet range delivers enhanced shock absorption, while the open-cell foam is sponge-like in construction.

This results in kinetic energy of the cricket ball being dissipated by crushing the foam, reducing the impact pressure on the head of the user.
