It’s eye-black for your equipment.
Players have been wearing eye-black since baseball great Babe Ruth first smeared grease under his eyes. Since then, players from baseball to football have looked for an edge when fighting glare. Blackout Technology finally makes playing glare free a reality.
Special Matte Coated Bars.
Blackout Technology works the minute you put on the new RIP-IT Defense. And it eliminates 100% of glare that can reflect into your eyes.
Some players like to use a visor, and some don’t. This is why the new Defense comes with a visor that can be attached when wanted and pulled off when not wanted. Just another way the new Defense lets you play how YOU want to.
Lightest, strongest, most impact resistent yet.
Thanks to the steel safety cell design, every time you hit the field you have the confidence you want and the performance you need. Impacts from the ball hitting the Defense are repelled and the force is absorbed and transferred away from the point of impact. This is because the steel safety cell was modeled after the protective steel frame of the car you drive.
Wide angle viewing.
The Defense creates a stunning amount of vision and most players tend to forget they are wearing one. The flawless design was centered on removing what was unnecessary and as a result, has created the best vision possible for a fielder's face mask.
You can see your feet.
One of the unique things about the Defense is when you look down you can actually see your feet. While most face masks have obstructed views fielding grounders or pop-ups, the Defense and its clutter free design makes seeing the ball to your glove easy and flawless.
Talking chin cups.
Because the chin cup on the Defense is infinitely adjustable it fits you exactly how you want it to. This means more comfort, better positioning, and the ability to talk easily while wearing a fielder’s mask. The secret is the back of the chin cup is made of one continuous piece of velcro. Meaning you can stick it on however you need to.
