The new masuri StemGuard
The StemGuard is a clip-on attachment, which provides additional protection for a batsman’s vulnerable neck.
The StemGuard attaches to existing Masuri Vision Series helmets with moulded clips. The attachment has been designed to give batsman free movement, while offering protection to the vulnerable region at the back of the head and neck.
Masuri extensively studied all information available in order to develop StemGuard. We have worked with a number of cricket’s national governing bodies during the development to take StemGuard from concept to a production capable prototype within three months.
This new innovation by Masuri combines an impact modified TPU honeycomb with military grade crush foam in order to maximise impact absorption, giving players much more confidence when batting.
MASURI VISION SERIES AND STEMGUARD REVIEWED ON CHANNEL 9, AUSTRALIA AFTER BEING WORN BY KUMAR SANGAKKARA:
Masuri Managing Director Sam Miller said:
The primary challenge was to retain freedom of movement for the players whilst increasing protection in the region at the back of the head and top of the neck. Based on our research to date we believe the StemGuard provides players with a full range of movement and as such are confident that we have created a viable product that will provide players at all levels the ability to choose extra protection."
The StemGuard fits onto all Masuri Vision Series helmets. It comes with three sizes of interchangeable centre strap, so that the size of the guard can be adjusted accordingly to ensure a comfortable fit.
Masuri have a patent pending for the StemGuard.
