The Guardian team was formed in 2010 with the manufacturing and design of the Guardian Cap, a soft-shell football and lacrosse helmet cover that reduces the impact of a hit up to 33%. In 2015 we developed the Pearl, the first greaseless lacrosse ball that doesn't grease or harden over time. Guardian Innovations was born from The Hanson Group, a material science company with almost two decades of engineering expertise in creating custom solutions for big name businesses. We use our material science expertise to improve the composition of many sporting goods pieces. The team is comprised of innovators and scientists that are passionate about introducing better engineered sporting equipment. Our goal remains the same: protecting athletes participating in sports that clearly demand advancements in equipment.
