The mission continues
The VICIS story continues to evolve as we to push forward to usher in the newest advancements in helmet technology. There are many stories circulating as to the current state of the company, but we wanted to inform our customers and set the record straight:
- The VICIS brand and all assets were recently purchased by Innovatus Capital Partners. With this, we have formed an entirely new company, yet have retained the VICIS brand name. Innovatus has also chosen to retain the core team of VICIS engineers, product developers, and designers responsible for the ZERO1, and the recently revealed ZERO2.
- To further improve our manufacturing and distribution capabilities, VICIS has partnered with Schutt, another Innovatus’ portfolio company, who will be responsible for a portion of final VICIS helmet assembly and national distribution of the forthcoming ZERO2. This partnership allows VICIS to better serve our customers and allow the product development team to focus in on continued innovation and further product developments, while improving manufacturing capabilities and quality.
- The VICIS design and engineering team will remain operating out of our Seattle, WA headquarters. Here, we will continue to utilize our state of the art testing facility and advanced rapid prototyping technologies.
With our new strategic partnership and company structure, we look forward to providing further protection advancements to athletes of all ages and to always challenge ourselves to reimagine what a helmet can do.
