It is no secret that polo is a sport full of adrenaline, passion and energy, but it also exposes players to serious injuries and safety risks. Galloping in an open field at high speeds, with a total of eight horses facing each other must not be easy at all, not only because of the speed, but also because of the ball that crosses from side to side, the mallet that hits in different directions and the height of the rider on top of the horse, exposing him to falls, stomping and crushing.
After this somewhat chilling introduction we are not trying to be dramatic, we simply want to state some of the risks to which polo players are exposed – which although we know they are worth it – do highlight the need for highly qualified protection elements that seek to reduce the risks and safeguard the life of the polo player.
Thus, different bodies have been created in each country that seek, among other things, to ensure the safety and integrity of polo players, through regulations, standards or certifications to those who offer products for the game of polo, being these entities who verify that in reality the product is suitable for use in the field of play.
Krono Polo recognises the need for standardisation that measures the resistance of different polo products, especially polo helmets, which is one of the tasks of polo organisations and equestrian sport in general, and has therefore sought not only certification from the Hurlingham Polo Association (HPA) but also certification from the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) which is the body responsible for regulating various sports in the United States, including polo.
As a brand, achieving this certification represents credibility and positioning on an international level and complements the work Krono has done to date. As a company, it shows an incredible commercial openness in a market that every day increases the participation in the polo industry and seduces great players, polo teams and polo clubs at an international level, becoming an incredible business bet for Krono Polo.
To talk about a certification in polo helmets by Nocsae is to talk about protection, safety and health care for the player, but to talk about a Krono polo helmet is to have all of the above plus an unequalled design that is in line with good taste, youthful and contemporary. Krono polo helmets have stood out for their unique design and aesthetics, and have managed to occupy an important space in the best polo tournaments and among the best players of this sport, who prefer the brand for its global vision, its ease of delivery and the unique energy that is imprinted on the customer’s attention.
To have a Krono polo helmet is to have an ally on the field, an ally that seeks to provide the best ingredients for your team to be victorious in every match. Visit http://www.kronopolo.com and discover what a true polo brand is.
