The 2019 Polyurethane Innovation Award Winner Is… 

Congratulations to Carbon and their partnership with Riddell on the SpeedFlex Precision Diamond football helmet for being crowned the winner of the 2019 Polyurethane Innovation Award!

Carbon and Riddell partnered to produce the first-ever, digitally printed liner for the SpeedFlex Precision Diamond football helmet. To make this groundbreaking product, Carbon used athlete data Riddell gathered in their proprietary database of 5 million head impacts to create next-gen head protection. The resulting Diamond helmet liner is printed to be precisely contoured to the athlete’s head. Using Carbon’s pioneering DLS™ technology, the liner was created using light and oxygen, and incorporates intricate, custom lattice structures with custom energy absorbing materials also developed by Carbon. Carbon and Riddell’s partnership and innovation will help keep our young athletes safe.
