Leading manufacturer Canterbury recently announced the launch of the new Reinforcer Headguard, which will be proudly worn by Wales star Justin Tipuric among others.
Working with teams and players across the UK, the Reinforcer features a cutting edge design that has been created with ventilation, protection and comfort at the forefront following extensive research into headgear design.
With safety becoming even more of a huge concern in rugby over the last few years, innovations such as this are hugely welcome. Too many players are picking up concussion related injuries, with a number having their careers ended prematurely.
The new Headguard also provides full coverage to prevent cuts and abrasions and conforms to World Rugby specifications.
“Collisions are inevitable and rugby is a game played at such a high intensity that it is vital to give yourself as much protection as you can.” Wales and Ospreys star Justin Tipuric said
“I have always worn a headguard and knowing that I have that extra layer of security when on the pitch allows me to play my game without fear of picking up an injury.”
“Going forward, I will be working closely with Canterbury’s design teams to ensure that their product range continues to be innovative and of the highest quality for players of all levels and, in this instance, provide both comfort and safety whilst competing.”
We got our hands on a Reinforced Headguard this week and we highly recommend picking one up. The Reinforcer is available in sizes small to extra-large and in four colours – Black, True red, Dresden blue and Navy. Available for £50.00 from www.canterbury.com
