The 70-yard indoor surface includes a midfield Iowa State logo at the 50-yard line and one ten-yard endzone with the word “Cyclones” emblazoned in burnt cardinal and gold.

The Hellas crew is installing the turf system with a Cushdrain shock pad, Matrix Helix, RealFill infill and multi-use KickAbout on the outer edge of the field.

Cushdrain is an elastic layer paved in place over a laser-graded drainstone foundation that provides planarity and holds its form through multiple life cycles. The Cushdrain shock pad helps protect athletes from injuries caused by hard impacts with the surface.

Matrix Helix has shape memory technology that curls each fiber to secure the infill to prevent migration and “splash-out” for a uniform playing surface. Hellas RealFill infill provides fiber support, energy restitution enhanced shock absorption and rapid drainage to prevent compaction under heavy use for a consistent G-Max rating over time.
