412 showed us images of Michigan’s new helmets. The Wolverines have worn Riddell helmets, but have decided to go in a different direction with the Brine Triumph and Warrior TII helmets.

The helmet bears a distinctive painted design which is a nationally recognized icon for University of Michigan’s football team. According to Bentley Historical Library:

The famous “winged” design dates from 1938 when Coach Herbert O. “Fritz” Crisler arrived from Princeton to begin a new era in Michigan football. Even as the design and composition of helmets evolved from stitched cowhide to high-tech, molded plastic, the winged design has remained the pre-eminent symbol of Michigan football. Other Michigan athletic teams have adopted the winged design for their own headgear as well.
