A lot has changed over the years, but one thing that has remained constant is
Riddell's commitment to innovation in the
football helmet. That's carried over
from their adult line to their youth football helmets, where Riddell's patented
technologies are helping to keep youth players safe.
Riddell's youth football helmets take everything that's great about their adult
helmets and puts into a lighter weight ABS plastic shell that's great for young
players. From the top of the line
Riddell Youth SpeedFlex to options for your
budget like the
Riddell Victor, their helmets have a look and feel that's
preferred by players at the game's highest levels.
One of Riddell's best technologies is their Patented Side Impact Protection
(PSIP) system that adds support to the jaw. The mandible area of Riddell's
helmets are bolstered by side shell extensions and liner extensions that run
down the side of the helmet. The technology in included in all of Riddell's
youth helmets, making them better equipped to handle side impacts.
All other helmets, with the exception of the SpeedFlex, feature the aggressive
Revo Speed shell design that has become a staple in football. The Speed shell is
well ventilated and has a look that's easy to spot on the field.
Riddell's youth football helmets are some of the best in the youth game today.
With their combination of a professional look and high-level technology, they
offer plenty of opportunity to grow as your game does.
