Riddell SpeedFlex Adult Football Helmet

After much anticipation, the Riddell SpeedFlex Adult Helmet has arrived and is poised to change the way we look at football helmets. Built with the latest technological features to lower force from impacts +at high and low velocities, the Riddell SpeedFlex is like no other helmet on the market. With its distinctive styling, that includes a flexible panel on the front of the helmet and a Cam-Loc chinstrap, the SpeedFlex surely distances itself from the pack. To further that point, the helmet ranked number one in the Virginia Tech Helmet Ratings released in October of 2014 and became the first helmet to score under 0.2 in STAR Value.

For more details on the Virginia Tech Helmet Ratings and the STAR evaluation system, click here.

  • Patented Side Impact Protection (PISP) helps reduce force from side impacts
  • The Flex System is flexibility engineering into the shell, facemask and clip to reduce impact force
  • Composite Energy Management keeps the strategically placed padding inside the helmet in place during games and practices
  • All-points quick release makes attaching and detaching facemasks easy
  • Ratchet-Loc retention system is an easier way to adjust your chinstrap on the fly
  • Inflatable custom fit liner and standard 1" jaw pads help provide a perfect fit
  • PLEASE NOTE: all inflatable jaw pads require a Riddell Football Helmet Inflator Pump to inflate, and Glycerin to adequately lubricate inflation needle
  • After needle and valve are lubricated, insert the needle with a careful twisting motion
  • Do NOT use an inflation needle other than those specially designed for Riddell helmets. These needles are the correct length, and should not puncture the liners if properly used
  • WARNING: Product cannot be returned or exchanged if liner is damaged or punctured due to improper inflation or needle use
  • A flexible liner designed for various head shapes provides comfort and stability
  • Removable moisture-resistant liner cover
  • The High Strength Spring Stainless Steel (HS4) facemask is thinner and lighter than other Riddell facemasks
  • Includes unattached white soft cup cam loc chinstrap. Upgrade to different hard cup or TCP for additional charge
  • Unattached facemask available for additional charge
  • Brand: Riddell
  • Gender Age: Adult
  • Weight: 3.45 lbs
  • Shell Type: Polycarbonate
  • Pad Type: Foam padding with overliner
  • Inflatable: Yes
  • Compatible Facemasks: Riddell SpeedFlex Facemasks
  • Vt Helmet Rating: ★★★★★

The Best
I play OLB for Oxford High School and used the helmet during spring training and didn't have a single problem the impact of hits feel like nothing its the best helmet I have ever worn.

Comfort, Safety and Practicality!
I've played at *Nearly* every level that this sport has to offer, (Youth-HS-College, Ju-Co, D-2 and Semi professional) and have played TE - FB - DE - ILB and OLB. I'm currently still playing at the semi professional level, I'm 31 years old and I've never felt more secure with any single piece of headgear that I've owned. Yes it costs a bit more than the generic or older helmets, but when it comes to safety you really do get what you pay for. Adjustable liners are great for the "In-between" sizes of some players Twist and break away mask is added security just in-case something happens where they need the helmet off quickly. It feel's like second skin almost while its wrapped around your head, impressive "Shock absorption" I weigh 270 lbs, am 6'3 and run a 4.6 40yrd dash so I can bring a hit, but I don't feel like the helmet compromises in any way. Extended jaw area keeps the helmet snug to your head as well. I really can't say enough about this helmet, this and the new shoulder-pads i purchased from Sportsunlimitedinc (both suggested by Iknowfootball (youtube) have not disappointed I look forward to getting several more years of use out of them. 5 stars all around*****

Worth every penny
Purchased helmet for my son for HS Frosh team. Compared to Riddell helmet school provided, this is light years ahead in safety and comfort. Fits like a glove because of the 5 air zones - it provides a great custom fit even at the jaw. Fairly light weight and withstands great contact. Son plays FB/TE and MLB, and he has not had a single issue with helmet.
Prosprotection, comfort and fit.
ConsNew chin strap systems takes some getting use to, but once you have it down, it is much better than the old style snaps

The best helmet available
I used all Riddell helmets from VSR-4, Revolution, Speed, Revolution 360 and now SpeedFlex and to be honnest, each new helmets created by Riddell is better than the previous one (except, maybe, for the Revolution 360). This Riddell SpeedFlex is very comfortable, very good looking, offers the best protection we can find on a Riddell helmet and very light. In addition, the new Ridell chinstrap technology is one of the biggest improvement we had since a long time. For me, long time Riddell user, it's the better helmet you can use today.
ProsVery comfortable Super light Great new chinstrap methodology

Really great helmet
My son has been playing since he's about 7 - now that he's playing in HS, I wanted to make sure he had a really good helmet. We ordered this one after doing some research, and he is completely thrilled with it. I am definitely more comfortable about his safety with this on his noggin. Ordering from Sport Unlimited was easy - delivery was super fast, and the helmet was exactly as ordered. So happy we chose to purchase from them as opposed to the manufacturer.
