(Newswire.net — March 28, 2016) Glen Mills, PA — Unequal Technologies has just launched their campaign to protect all players in the qualifying games leading up to the Texas State 7on7 Championship. Their headgear, the Unequal Halo, will be marketed through team coaches so their players can benefit from added head protection as they compete for a slot in the state championship.

This is the company’s second year as The Official Protection of the Texas State 7on7 Championship Tournament where every player on all 128 teams is mandated to wear the Unequal Halo to reduce the risk of head injury.

The Unequal Halo is so versatile it is not only being used by schools and school districts across the United States who play in 7on7 leagues but is also the same Halo worn by soccer star Ali Krieger of the US National Women’s Team, winners of the the 2015 World Cup Championship.  Read more on the benefits of the Halo headgear: http://www.texas7on7.com/unequal.html

Doug Stephens, Executive Director of Texas State 7on7, stated that bringing the Unequal Halo to 7on7 was an important step in football player safety.

“Always aware of safety issues, we feel confident we are putting our participants in the very best protective technology available today. And it looks great!” said Stephens.

Just 10mm thin, the Unequal Halo is made with military-grade TriDur® aramid fabric, Accelleron® and other materials layered inside. Used by law enforcement as well as the military, TriDur is a patented material 5X stronger than steel with a practically unmatched ability to absorb and disperse high impact energy. Lab tests show that the Halo headgear significantly reduces peak acceleration and peak g-forces in head-to-head and head-to-ground impacts compared to no head protection. It’s been certified to ASTM F2439-11 and complies with FIFA Law 4.

“Unequal protects at a level that athletes notice. The improved resiliency they all experience leads to more on-field confidence and better performance, no matter the sport,” says Jim Caldwell, Executive Vice President at Unequal Technologies. ”7on7 is not meant to be a contact sport but we all know collisions happen. Halo soft head protection is exactly what the sport has needed to help improve player safety and performance without affecting the spirit of the non-impact game.” To read more about the company, visit http://www.si.com/edge/2014/12/22/unequal-gyro-helmet-liner-nfl-ncaaf-football-protection-gear.
