Rated 5 out of 5-STARS in Virginia Tech Helmet Lab’s ground breaking independent impact testing. Put on an AURA Headband and you’re instantly protected by D3O’s industry-defining smart molecule impact reduction technology. The GameBreaker AURA is the only protective headband in the world made exclusively from D3O materials.


Gamebreaker’s soft shell protective headgear is molded out of a unique composite of impact reduction foams, offering maximum protection upon impact. The hook and loop chin strap combined with adjustable laces in the back enables the headgear to custom fit each person’s head. LYCRA surrounds the outer shell, allowing air to flow throughout and preventing the player from enduring any extra heat. No more sweaty, smelly headgear. Bad odors wash right out!


The GAMEBREAKER-PRO powered by D3O is the ultimate soft shell helmet for comfort and protection. The GameBreaker-PRO uses the same industry-leading protection materials as the GameBreaker helmet, combined with world-exclusive D3O Impact Protection technology to offer the greatest protection upon impact. Improving upon the original GAMEBREAKER line of headgear, the Gamebreaker-PRO provides significantly more impact protection thanks to the power of D3O reactive smart molecules, and an improved self-adjustable rear pad that gives more protection to the back of the head, further reducing the risk of concussion!

GameBreaker-PRO Headgear is the only Soft Shell Helmet to receive a 5-Star safety rating from the Virginia Tech Helmet Labs and provides protection to 95% of the player’s head while reducing injury risk by over 75%. (Based on testing done by Virginia Tech Helmet Labs to determine the reduction in linear and rotational force transferred to the player’s head.)

Since 2011, Virginia Tech researchers have been providing unbiased helmet ratings that allow consumers to make informed decisions when purchasing helmets. The helmet ratings are the culmination of over 15 years of research on head impacts in sports and identify which helmets best reduce concussion risk. This work is done as part of Virginia Tech’s service mission and is 100% independent of any funding or influence from helmet manufacturers.
