Rawlings' Coolflo Batting Helmet Gets a Clear-Coat Finish

No matter the paint job, Rawlings' Coolflo batting helmet is the way to go.

Try Rawlings' Coolflo helmet with a clear-coat finish (model number CFBHN), available in black, cardinal, dark green, light gold, maroon, navy, pink, purple, royal, scarlet or white.

Underneath that stylish color is a high-impact ABS shell that meets the standards of the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE).

Additionally, this helmet features denser, thicker EVA foam padding and new side crown padding. The EVA foam is 114 percent denser and 30 percent thicker for higher quality protection. Like all Rawlings helmets manufactured after June 30, 2014, the padding is optic orange in color.

Coolflo technology means the helmet contains 15 vents to let air flow through, keeping the head cool and dry.

This helmet is pre-drilled for these facemasks: SBRWG, RWG2, and SBRWG2.

It's made with moisture-wicking, anti-bacterial Pro-Dri Plus lining.

The one-size-fits-most design is made for head sizes 6-1/2 to 7-1/2.

If the pitch speed in your league tops out at 70 MPH, Rawlings recommends a helmet with an S70™ Performance Rating™.

Try Rawlings' 70 MPH batting helmet (model number S70XS), which features the exclusive COOLFLO® XVI™ helmet design, Heat Exchange™ technology and a rubberized matte paint finish.

Rawlings’ exclusive COOLFLO XV1™ front vents allow for 30 percent more cool air ventilation.

Heat Exchange™ vents rapidly circulate cooler ambient air. Top vents quickly move heated air from player’s head, allowing 70 percent more heat to escape.

The enhanced ABS plastic shell with rubberized matte finish has dual ear flaps and is available in black, graphite, navy, royal, scarlet and white.

One size fits 7-1/4 to 7-3/4. Find the junior batting helmet under model number S70XJ at Rawlings' official online store, which fits sizes 6-1/2 to 7-1/8.

• NOCSAE® baseball batting helmet standards involve tests of baseballs fired from a cannon at 60 mph at a distance of 2 ft, which is roughly equivalent to an impact resulting from a pitch speed of 68 mph at a distance of 60 ft.
• The Rawlings Performance Rating™ System is based on pitch speeds at a distance of 60 ft.
• NOCSAE® standards require that a batting helmet withstand all test impacts at an established peak severity index (SI). Helmets also must survive all test protocols substantially intact and ready for use.
• The NOCSAE® standard is aimed at reducing the risk of skull fractures. The standard has not been correlated with reducing the risk of concussions from such impacts.

WARNING: Severe head or neck injury, including paralysis or death may occur to you despite using this helmet. No helmet can prevent all head injuries or any neck injuries a player might receive while participating in baseball or softball.
