The technology of Kollide’s football helmet has the potential to revolutionize all head safety equipment

Montreal, Quebec (October 25, 2021) – The football helmet prototype developed by Kollide, a
consortium composed of four Montreal-based companies, in collaboration with the École de technologie
supérieure (ÉTS), has been selected as one of three final grant recipients from the NFL Helmet Challenge
launched by the National Football League (NFL) in 2019. The Kollide helmet outperformed helmets
currently used in the NFL, as well as other commercially available helmets. During this challenge, three
companies were praised by the jury, with Kollide being the only one having no experience as a football
helmet manufacturer. For Kollide, the next step is the refining of its prototype ahead of becoming a
commercial product.
