Harvard has super custom helmets for the Spring 2011 season. We got pictures from a reader. You know how we roll. Now back to the sweet new lax lids… Yes, I know this helmet has no stickers, decals or logos on it. Yes, I know that’s not a custom chin strap. And yes, the helmet is all one color, nothing special there. So what, you STILL don’t see how super custom it is? Really?
Look at the helmet. What color is it? It’s not red. And it’s not marroon. It’s… wait for it… CRIMSON. That’s right, somehow Harvard got CRIMSON colored helmets from Cascade. Now, I have no idea if this is something special they did just for Harvard, or if this is something they will offer out more regularly (custom team order helmet colors), but it’s cool nonetheless if only because Harvard won’t have a marroon helmet again. They didn’t last year with their Warrior helmets and it’s great to see Cascade step up and offer their NEW NEW in custom colors.
It must give coaches at Tennessee, Indiana, and other schools with traditional, but slightly different colors, a little more hope that their team too can wear perfectly matched helmets. Does any other sport even come close to the customization lacrosse companies offer? Nope. Not a chance.
