Helmet Cage Colour??

Recently we were asked…

Hey Guy’s,

I need to order a new cage for my OBO Helmet. I once remember someone telling me that silver was the best colour to get for some reason, but not sure why. OBO has 4 colours for sale Black, White, Silver and Yellow.

Anyone got any advice on what would be the best colour to order?


It’s an age old question but one worth mentioning again. So we had a chat about this in the community and here were some of the responses…

  • Pick a retro as colour just to distract your opponent.
  • In all fairness I’d take the silver a sand it back then paint it rainbow colours just to really distract the enemy.
  • Black as it is more subtle and does not obscure vision
  • Black, to reduce glare and be less intrusive to my vision.
  • Black, no reflections.
  • Black Helmet- Black Grill and so on. Spending all our hard earned cash on goalkeeping products it has to look aesthetically pleasing.
  • Silver or like a copper but that’s for indoor because the lighting sucks.
  • I’d love a chrome/silver grill, look modern and very swarve!
  • I currently have a silver one and the glare isn’t noticeable and doesn’t get in the way of vision. so probably silver or black depending on colour of my helmet at the time.
  • I have a silver one and would have it again, I feel it mirrors the surroundings so its not like wearing one at all.
  • Yellow cos there’s no point in hiding from the ball!
  • Yellow, because I don’t feel I get enough attention whilst wearing bright blue pads…

  1. I bought a matte gray cage and it has been great. It is a neutral color and does not hinder my vision and because it is matte (not shiny), I do not get any reflections from the sun or lights.

  2. I’m less worried about colour, I’m more worried that it rusts after a year or two! Can’t you make it of a non-rust material so I (a) don’t have to replace it as often and (b) don’t have bits of rust getting in my eyes if anything hits my helmet.
