Masuri began life in Cape Town back in 1988, with the creation of the now commonplace stainless steel grill. Work then began to create the first lightweight, adjustable cricket helmet and Masuri soon became the most widely worn helmet in the first class and international arena, with the likes of Mike Atherton, Graham Gooch, Robin Smith and Brian Lara proudly sporting them.
Truly pioneers in the field, Masuri were the first cricket helmet manufacturer to introduce the titanium grille, fielding grille, wicket keeping helmet and the compact, three layer,’ sandwich construction’ shell.
Now based in the UK, with global distribution outlets, Masuri is the undisputed market leader for cricket helmets. A favourite with international and first class players, despite the fact that no player has ever been paid to wear the helmet.
One of the reasons so many professional players choose to wear Masuri cricket helmets is their slim-line design, which affords players the very best freedom of movement. Due to its constant investment in design and manufacture, Masuri is able to provide players with an extremely compact cricket helmet, whilst maintaining the high levels of impact protection required in the modern game. Masuri actually manufactures the only cricket helmet with a sandwich protection system, similar to the technology used in top end motorcycle helmets.
