Defend Your Head’s revolutionary product, ProTech, is as simple as it is effective. ProTech is a patented shell that is an “add-on” to new or existing helmets and utilizes specialized material to reduce the risk of injury due to blunt force trauma.

Our Product

Defend Your Head’s patented soft shell technology provides a polyurethane product with unique chemical properties, designed to form-fit the outer shell of most helmets. The product is designed to absorb and consequently slow the transfer of energy triggered by forceful blows to the hard shell helmet.

After many years of research and development, an impressive list of university and independent researchers has proven the product’s ability to reduce the effects of head trauma. With the proliferation of information pertaining to head injury incurred at all levels of play, from young athletes to professional athletes around the world, the product has a ready audience.
A duo of experienced, successful businessmen from the worlds of sports, entertainment, marketing, and finance has teamed up to lead DYH and ProTech. It is no coincidence that both Glenn Tilley and John Roman have lived their lives in and around the the world of football at all levels. Learn more about Glenn Tilley and John Roman here.

Game changing technology.

Absorbs and dissipates energy:

  • Soft polyurethane foam absorbs and dissipates energy from blunt force impact.
  • Unique minute movement technology deflects harmful hits and guides energy away from the cranium.


Reduces speed of impact:

  • Specially formulated, high-absorption material slows down impact to the head from the time of the hit.


Low coefficient of friction:

  • Slippery surface deflects glancing blows, which are among the most damaging causes of head trauma.


Minute Movement Technology:

  • ProTech leverages minute movement technology, which means that upon impact, the cover moves slightly over the helmet beneath it, deflecting harmful impacts away from the head.


Industry proven, athlete approved.

Aesthetically pleasing, with a streamlined design that conforms with modern helmets.

Compatible with most major Riddell and Schutt helmet models–simply place over your existing helmet and secure.
