About Skulltec Head Protection

No protective device will ever take place of prevention and education concerning the proper way to conduct high risk activities; however, Skulltec caps reduce the impact significantly. Skulltec caps are lightweight and designed to fit comfortably under any type of protective helmet or to be worn by itself. The cap is made up of 83% Nylon and 17% Spandex. The advanced gel inserts are made of all natural soy that is easily removed for washing. Skulltec's gel inserts allow for instant recovery when contact occurs. The inserts are less rigid then Kevlar providing more comfort to the user. The caps come in adult and youth sizes, as it is important to protect the heads from pee-wee level to professional.

Skulltec caps are designed to replicate the skull caps that are already worn by NFL players and motorcyclists alike, with the addition of protective gel. The idea behind Skulltec was to make a product already worn serve a purpose; that purpose is to add a layer of protection to the head during collisions and reduce impact.
