Rawlings S100P Performance Rated Batting Helmet - Men's For a level of protection that far exceeds the basic NOCSAE protection standards, it's all about the Rawlings Performance-Rated Batting Helmet. While the current NOCSAE standards test helmets with 68mph pitches, this helmet has been tested with pitch speeds up to 100 mph and is proven to withstand that impact. Inside, the padding absorbs 75% of the impact energy before it reaches the head. For that, credit the Advanced Impact Management System and its four independent layers. It includes a composite insert that adds durability to critical impact locations.
