History of Mycro Sportsgear
Mycro Sportsgear was founded in 1986. From the outset, major emphasis was placed on adopting the highest possible industrial standards within the R&D function. Over the years the helmet has developed and improved and is now the most popular helmet on the market. Our current helmet, is the 5th generation of equipment now available. The Mycro helmet is the lightest, safest and most comfortable helmet available.
We were the 1st Company to reach the NSAI Safety Standards when they were first introduced. We manufacture the helmets in Ballincollig, Co. Cork using raw materials from local suppliers. We are a 100% Irish owned company. We are the biggest supplier of hurling helmets in Ireland. We have delivered helmets all over the world to places such as France, Hungary, Japan, Luxembourg, Australia, the UK and USA.
In 2018, we developed a new synthetic hurley, the Mycro Evolution Hurley!
Mycro engaged with the best engineers and designers to replicate what the ash hurley does but, more importantly, to improve on its performance.
In terms of design the Evolution has a number of unique features. It is stronger and therefore more durable then the ash hurley.
However, despite its strength, it is still flexible and has excellent shock absorption qualities which significantly reduces sting transfer to the players arms. The hurleys are manufactured locally in Cork and are proving hugely popular here in Ireland and also internationally!
Mycro Sportsgear build strong, compact and comfortable hurling and camogie helmets using the latest technologies.
