About Us

Company BackgroundErin & Lee Hanson

Erin & Lee Hanson started Guardian Innovations 5 years ago with one goal in mind – protecting athletes by developing superior sports equipment. With their 20+ years of experience owning and operating a technology and material sciences company, they created The Guardian Cap to reduce the force of impact upon collision experienced by football and lacrosse players, proving that soft-sided helmet technology is superior. The Guardian Cap was created from a passion for player safety, a knowledge in material sciences and the known physics behind impact reduction.

The Guardian Cap is a one-size fits all helmet cover that can be worn on any current football or lacrosse helmet. It’s padded, soft-shell reduces the force of impact by increasing the time of deceleration upon impact. Now in its 5th selling year, there are more than 50,000 Guardian Caps being used on the field. The Guardian Cap has been adopted by youth leagues, high schools and colleges across the US as well as in Canada and Germany. The industry is changing and more parents, coaches, and ATCs are looking for new equipment for their players, leading them to the Guardian Cap.

At Guardian Innovations we have a passion for protecting athletes, and we continually develop technologies that can enhance sports equipment.

*No helmet, practice apparatus, or helmet pad can prevent or eliminate the risk of concussions or other serious head injuries while playing sports. Researchers have not reached an agreement on how the results of impact absorption tests relate to concussions. No conclusions about a reduction of risk or severity of concussive injury should be drawn from impact absorption tests.
