If you watch or play football, you know that football can be a violent sport. One hard blow to the head and the athlete may fall with concussion symptoms. This is a frightening reality that some footballers have to face during their careers.
However, having a quality helmet that works properly can prevent some of these phenomena. Concussions cannot be completely prevented with helmets, but they can add some serious protection.
The Riddell SpeedFlex is a near-perfect football helmet. In appearance and function, just like the pro, it is a great option for any adult footballer. It is the top choice for high school students with multiple size options, all the way up to MVP of the adult rec-league. With a classic design from one of the leading manufacturers of football helmets, they are available in nearly two dozen colors, so you can easily match any team.
Much less expensive than other helmets on the market, the Schutt Youth Recruit hybrid football helmet excels in its shock absorption. It includes TPU cushioning, which is one of the most advanced shock absorptions on the market. The pads attach easily and are described as soft and pliable, collecting and slowly dissipating energy. A hybrid cushion is used in the critical crown area, and the sides are D30 cushioned.
This helmet has a soft (but not inflatable) lining that provides comfort to all young players. The helmet itself is ventilated, and the padding is designed to stay hygienic even after sweaty workouts. Schutt uses an ABS plastic casing lighter than polycarbonate and has Inter-Link Air Maxx TPU lip pads.
This helmet comes with a DNA ROPO face mask made of steel and protects the mouth. It is specially designed for high-ranking players and also meets NOCSAE standards.
The Schutt Sports Vengeance VTD II Football Helmet is simple in design, reasonably priced, and available in almost every color to suit virtually any college student’s needs. Most importantly, it boasts a 5-star Virginia Tech helmet rating.
The interior of the helmet has a combination of 1-layer and 2-layer TPU lining. A single layer reduces weight by absorbing shock from impact, while a double layer is placed in critical places. The face shield (which is not included) can be easily attached or removed by twisting. Reviewers love it for its comfortable fit and quality design.
