The padding in football helmets is constantly changing.
There's always new innovations in materials, fit and feel that make the football
helmet one of the most cutting edge products in all of sports. Schutt has pushed
innovation forward in their youth helmets with the hybrid helmet ? a mix of
materials and liners found in their adult helmets with a flexible material known
as D3O now found in every Schutt hybrid helmet.
Used in the rear and sides of Schutt's youth hybrid
helmets, D3O is a patented technology that is soft and flexible when used to fit
your head, but immediately locks up upon impact, forming a layer of protective
shock absorption. The material is light in weight and extremely comfortable,
allowing for a variety of head shapes and sizes to fit the helmet perfectly.
That's important for youth leagues that rotate helmets and for players who
haven't been able to find a helmet that fits quite correctly.
D3O is a distinctive orange color that clearly makes
Schutt's hybrid helmets stand out. But it also helps keep the weight down
despite the thicker padding. It's available in both hybrid and hybrid+ models of
Schutt's helmets, with the plus helmets also including inflation points for a
more customizable fit.
At Sports Unlimited, we have both Vengeance and Recruit
helmets available in hybrid form. Pick one up today and feel the difference
technology can make in your head protection.
