Football Helmet Buyers Guide

Schutt isn't a company that rests on its laurels. That's why they took one of the most popular helmets in the game today and made it even better with the Schutt Vengeance DCT Adult Football Helmet. While the helmet maintains its distinctive look with a high-powered shell design, it now includes new Single Layer DCT TPU that makes the helmet lighter and absorbs impact better than regular TPU. The upgraded TPU still absorbs both high velocity hits and low impact blows that occur during games. But it also drops the weight of the Vengeance down to 2.85 pounds, almost a full pound lighter than the previous model. The 2014 edition still features everything else you've grown to love about the Vengeance, including a SUREFIT TPU AiR liner that gives the helmet unmatched comfort and feel. It also includes a patented twist-release system that makes attaching facemasks (not included) easier than ever. The Vengeance still meets NOCSAE standards and comes with a soft cup chin strap and 7/8" AiR Maxx TPU jaw pads.

    • Delivers a vastly superior fit for a variety of different shape heads
  • Vengeance helmet does NOT come with a facemask (See all Schutt Vengeance Facemasks)

Quality helmet, fast shipping
August 20, 2015
I ordered this helmet on a Thursday and had it Saturday morning. My son loves it. What a difference between his team provided helmet! his head measured 22 1/8 so I was unsure which size to order and I went with the adult large and it fits perfect after swapping out the jaw pads from a previous schutt helmet we bought. I forgot to add on the hard chin strap which I now have to order, the one that comes with it is leather and he's not allowed to wear it because it has really no protection.
Fast service and a real nice helmet.
They should sell with bigger jaw pads.

Purchased this for my high school son. Fits well. He loves it! Cost was significantly less than the local sports outlet store.
Delivery was expedient. In fact, it arrived two days before expected.

I used this helmet all through my sophomore year, and part of my junior season before switching to a Riddell 360. It's a pretty solid helmet and I liked it while I had it. After a while though the facemark started to get loose and no amount of tightening would fix the problem. The bladders inside also had trouble holding air. Not a bad helmet for the money, but not the best experience for me

Very Good Helmet
May 9, 2015
I bought this helmet in january and since the first time, I loved the look of the helmet and the facemask I ordered, the V-EGOP-II. When I tried this on it was really comfortable and you feel really protected. I heard a lot of reviews saying that the helmet is heavy but I'm 16 and even after a 3 hours practice I don't think it's that heavy and I play LB/S. Even after some hits that let scratches on my helmet I didn't got headaches and didn't feel nothing. It looks a bit big but that's not a problem but it's a hot helmet when the sun shine.
Protection Design A lot of facemaks Not that expensive compared to the SpeedFlex Comfortable Not that heavy Easy to clean, after 5 months it still smell new
A bit Hot.

Best Helmet, I think...
September 29, 2014
I have tried the speed, and i think this is better from that because the plastic tpu padding works better then the foam padding in speed. in cold and warm weather. one thing is sometimes it slips and hits your nose when you tackle someone while using your face mask, its not a big deal but just something to keep in mind because speed doesn't do that. But this helmet is more protective ...looks cooler (; and it wont smell bad because the sweat wont stay in the liner. its heavier and probably doesn't have as good of venting. But if your looking for a help to protect your head..get this, just saying
looks, protective, comfortable liner,
a heavier helmet, might slip sometimes

Nice fit and protection
September 5, 2014
I wanted a helmet that looks good while providing quality protection from concussions, and the schutt vengeance fit the bill. I have been using this helmet for the past couple of seasons, and I never felt at risk of sustaining a concussion after hard hits.

Im a varsity lineman and this helmet was not as comfortable as i thought it would be. I also got a big grill 2.0 face mask but it weighs as much as the helmet. To add onto that, halfway through the 2nd quarter of my first game i got a concussion. That just proves that no matter what helmet you get it won't protect you 100%. Id still recommend the helmet with a TITANIUM big grill face mask because it looks freaked sweet. Also i highly recommend the sportstar evolution chinstrap its super comfortable.
Looks good/ Intimidating Helmet itself is light Good shipping speed
Ventalation Concussion Feels kinda flimsy Not as comfortable as you think

Amazing cushion
August 22, 2014
Really good protection for the head and wide vision range!
Really good vision range, the DCT system just makes it perfect.
The shape is not what i'm used to. My old Air Xp, seems lighter. It's a bigger shape out from the ION 4D's, but what is it normal after the Ridell's Revo shape!

Greatest helemet ever
July 21, 2014
I bought this helemet with the big grill villain facemask for my sophomore high school year and I haven't played a season with it yet but I went to football camp and I got so many compliments saying how cool it looked and I let other people try it on and they have said it is the most comfortable helmet they ever worn it feels like there are pillows in there and I wore it during hitting drills and I couldn't even feel the hits it is such a great helemet better than anything riddel could make

Bought the 2013 model for son's freshman season last year. We are getting the titanium facemask for this year to lighten the load as the helmet is a bit heavy. He plays RB/LB and is known to knock himself silly he its so hard. Well thank goodness for the Vengeance!!! I can't say it enough... He made it thru the whole season with no brain trama in his head and sent a few kids on the other side of the ball out of the game with birdies and stars floating around in their head. With the whole CTE issue being brought to attention as a parent keeping my kid safe while he plays the game he loves is paramount! What I don't get is last year Schutt praised dual tpu as superior to single, but now its not??! The 2014 helmet has same padding in front, less on the side, but better rating.... Hmmmm that doesn't add up... Trying to sell more helmets? Shame on you Schutt!! Plus my understanding is the VT rating system is based on frontal impact only... Great helmet, I'm just saying some things make you go hmmmmm ;]

Comfortable at a price
June 4, 2014
This helmet is much lighter than expected. It was extremely comfortable. The most comfortable helmet I've ever worn. Although when hitting in it and all other schutt helmets I've ever worn would sometimes come down over the bridge of my nose and hurt really bad. It would make me see stars but most of all it makes me timid to hit which is why I won't be using this helmet any longer

Schutt Vengeance 2014 Adult M
January 9, 2014
Great Helmet. Has a very good hit absorption. Due to a feeling of a little pain on both sides behind the jaw, I only put 4 stars, because in spite of having done all that i can to supress it, it still here. Very good Customer Service too. I would recommend this helmet to all football players. P.S: I would know what's the name of the Facemask in the picture please. The one which is nearly on every helmets. It's not the "Vengeance ROPO-DW facemask", as said below. Thank you.
Light weight, good protection.

Haven't hit
December 13, 2013
It's a long time until i hit but for as now i can tell you this; It has a really huge shell biggest in market i think, it is slightly heavy, does not come with facemask, it is the most comofrtable helmet in market, not kidding It has new pad in forehead wich should make it more comfortable, due to new one layer TPU is slighly less heavy, it looks sick with villain facemask but is EXTREMELY not even kidding heavy, i think i'll buy another facemask. If you buy a visor you'll have to cut middle part it isn't a problem Shipping all the way to Mexico was in 10 days {SUPER fast} and it arrived in perfect conditions, they sent all that i asked as i asked and im really happy with helmet, fits perfect im XL and about 23.6 in head cincurference wich leaves helmet OK in fitting. As i said im really happy with customer service wich takes long time to answer but they answer everything

Questions & Answers
By John Christian from Manila on March 22, 2013
My head circumference is 22". Should I get a medium or a large size Vengeance? My height is 5'6", which size will look better on me?
By Customer Service on March 22, 2013

I always suggest sizing up if you are between sizes. Especially with the custom inflatable liner in the Vengeance, you will get the safest, more comfortable, and snug fit with a Large Vengeance, more so than you would with a Medium.

By Abe from Pleasant Grove, Utah on August 2, 2013
Would an Oakley visor fit the Vengeance ropo-pr facemask?
By Customer Service on August 5, 2013

An Oakley Visor should fit on all Vengeance facemasks.

By Doogs from Melbourne, Australia on February 23, 2013
Hi What facemask is on the helmet on this product page? Thanks
By Customer Service on February 23, 2013

The facemask in the current image is a prototype of the Vengeance ROPO-AB. The actual production model of the ROPO-AB is slightly different with a wider front grill, but the overall look is the same. You can view it here:

Hi, when are you expecting this back in stock?
By Customer Service on February 25, 2013

We have good stock in almost every color-size option available for the Vengeance. Could you let me know which color and size you had in mind?

By mikeal austin from some place in the world on June 25, 2013
Is this helmet lighter or heavier than the ion 4d and which has better protection
By Customer Service on June 26, 2013

The Vengeance is heavier than the ION 4D only by approximately .30 lbs and the Vengeance has a higher safety rating at this point in the Schutt line.

By Steve from Austin, Texas on April 8, 2013
Which jaw pads do you recommend if the standard size is too small? It doesn't look like there is one that matches the Vengeance (gray and blue).
By Customer Service on April 9, 2013

The proper jaw pads for the Vengeance are the Schutt AiR Maxx TPU jaw pads. The standard size is 7/8" but Schutt also offers them in 1", 1 1/8", and 1 3/8". They do come only in white and blue however, so they may not completely match your Vengeance, if you received one with a silver liner.

By Nate from Hawaii, Honolulu on July 25, 2013
Does the facemask, visor, and chinstrap all come together with the helmet or you have to get it seperately?
By Customer Service on July 26, 2013

This Vengeance DCT Adult Football Helmet only comes with a soft cup chinstrap. The facemask, visor, different style chinstrap, and any other accessories would have to be purchased separately.

By Chris from UK on April 11, 2013
What facemask is featured on the product picture? (Metallic silver M)?
By Customer Service on April 12, 2013

It is a Vengeance ROPO-DW facemask. We offer it in carbon steel and titanium, both in a wide variety of colors.

By lj paz from los angeles, California on April 13, 2013
Is there a difference between the grey padding and the white padding? Do you still make the helmets with the white padding?
By Customer Service on April 15, 2013

Hi LJ, good questions! Schutt initially launched the Vengeance with a white liner, but now has upgraded to a gray TPU liner that is a bit softer. Both liners have similar benefits, but Schutt will no longer make Adult Vengeance helmets with white liner.

We do still have some helmets with the white liner in stock. If you would prefer one of these liners over the other we may be able to accommodate your request if you talk with customer service directly at 1-800-693-6368.

By Alec from Paris on April 14, 2013
Does it come with the same chin strap that is on the picture or a hard cup?
By Customer Service on April 16, 2013

Hi Alec, this helmet comes with the Schutt soft cup chinstrap.

By George from Florida on March 17, 2013
Would you recommend purchasing the pump or can I use any pump with a needle to fit the helmet?
By Customer Service on March 19, 2013

We absolutely recommend using the Schutt Helmet Pump for all Schutt Helmets. The needle is specifically designed to provide proper inflation without damaging the Air liner. Other needles and pumps may work, but there is a chance that they could puncture or damage the liner. This type of damage is not usually covered under the helmet's warranty.

By josh from jacksonville, North Carolina on August 19, 2013
will a XL DNA facemask fit on a XL vengeance?
