LOOK: Iowa State has alternate matte helmets for 2014
Iowa State unveiled photos of an alternate matte helmet which will be tested during the 2014 season.
Iowa State will debut some new matte-finish helmets during the 2014 season, the school announced on Tuesday.
The alternate helmet will be used for "select games" during the year while the glossy-finish helmet will remain the primary option for the Cyclones. The matte trend has been catching on throughout the country over the last half-decade or so, and ISU wants to give it a test-run before committing to the new material full-time.
"I’m a traditionalist," Paul Rhoads said in a school-released statement. "However, this helmet provides us a chance to test different designs while staying within the concept of our school colors and brand."
