Unequal’s Innovative Head Protection, Used by Professional Athletes, Redesigned for Extreme Sport Athletes

The Uncap Sport’s chin strap allows skateboarders and other action-sport athletes to compete with a helmet that fits into their favorite hat or beanie

GLEN MILLS, Pa., June 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Unequal has redesigned its patented Uncap for the more than 16 million skateboarders across the country who needed a nimbler solution for their headgear protection. The Uncap Sport is outfitted with a chin strap to create the world’s first personal skateboard helmet that can be concealed under the athlete’s favorite baseball cap, hat or beanie. 

The Uncap was first featured on New York Yankees pitcher, Danny Farquhar (Yankees’ Uncap Baseball video). Much likes his cap, the Uncap Sport features NURO – a patented composite made of DuPont Kevlar, Airlar, and a multi-strike FlexShell. It is a thin, feather-light, multi-impact helmet that forms to each athlete’s head shape and size, and has air vents that offer comfortable, concealed protection. But, unlike Farquhar’s, the chin strap keeps the Uncap on athletes’ heads during even the sickest tricks and hard wipeouts.

The low profile Uncap improves balance and center of gravity, so athletes can do rad tricks and push their limits. Check out the Uncap in action: Uncap Sport video
