About Masuri

Masuri cricket helmets are designed for cricketers by cricketers.

Our Heritage

The Masuri story began in Cape Town in 1988 with the creation of the now commonplace stainless steel grille. They were an instant success, replacing the existing polycarbonate and the heavy, coated mild steel grilles. Somerset and Western Province batsman, Jon Hardy, who designed the grilles, sold the first three to Dean Jones, Geoff Marsh and David Boon at Somerset’s early season match against the Ashes winning 1989 Australians. 3D sports in Cheltenham immediately bought the whole of the initial stock of 1,000 grilles and sold out within weeks.

Work then began to create the first lightweight, adjustable helmet and Masuri soon became the most widely worn in the first class and International arena and the choice of players like Mike Atherton, Graham Gooch, Robin Smith and Brian Lara.

Masuri were the first to introduce the titanium visor, fielding visor, wicket keeping helmet and the compact, three layer, 'sandwich construction’ shell.

Where we are today

Now based in the UK with distribution throughout the cricketing world, the brand continues to be a market leader and a favourite with International and first class players. This is true regardless of the fact that no player has ever been paid to wear the Masuri helmet whilst Masuri’s competitors pay for the privilege of having professional players wear their helmets.

One of the reasons so many professional players choose to wear Masuri is it slim-line design which affords players the very best freedom of movement. The reason Masuri is able to provide players with such a compact product whilst maintaining the high levels of impact protection required in the modern game is its investment in design and manufacture which sees Masuri offering the only cricket helmet with a sandwich protection system, similar to the technology used in top end motorcycle helmets.

The Future...

Always at the forefront of innovation, the Company is investing heavily to redefine levels of safety and performance to meet the demands of the modern game. The high risk strategies of 20/20 cricket and modern safety expectations are a challenge for designers and manufacturers. But with the imminent introduction of such innovation, we will always strive to be the players’ choice and maintain the compact, lightweight and traditional look with which we have become synonymous. This has lead us to release the new Masuri Vision Series with patented features such as AP-Tech and Eyeline Grille so that Masuri continues to set the standard for cricket helmets for many years to come.
