All too often we see special edition helmets created as recruiting aids or design mock-ups that don’t wind up on the field. So, while we can confirm that an eye-catching new HydroChrome Gold Washington helmet has been commissioned, we can’t yet confirm what the implications are. Here’s hoping it winds up a normal part of the UDub uni though, as the ultra-reflective gold is a great look.
Produced by HGI, the super-shiny HydroChrome helmets often forgo decals entirely, instead opting for a logo designed into the helmet’s “skin,” and this lid does in fact feature a decal. That said, it’s not entirely without precedent for a stick-on logo to adorn HydroChrome, as seen with the UNC helmet debuted last year. That’s basically a long-winded way of telling you to stay tuned — this could be something to kick around the locker room, or a mock-up of things to come. We’ll bring you updates and confirmation as we get them.
