Schutt Recruit Hybrid Youth Football Helmet - 2016

A simple look at the Schutt Recruit Hybrid Youth Football Helmet reveals this is not your older brother's Recruit Hybrid. The helmet known for combining comfort and safety is upgraded this year with +Schutt's new D30 Energy Lock Technology to provide even more protection on the field. The D30 padding is bright orange in color and uses a molecule structure that locks up when impacts come, softening blows by dispersing the energy to a larger area. When the hits aren't there, it's a lightweight, flexible padding that gives your head a comfortable fit. That feeling is extended further with Schutt's Comfort Liner that provides a soft, pillow-like feel on the head. The rest of the helmet is packed with popular TPU cushioning that consistently absorbs more impact than foam across all a wider range of temperatures. A large standoff shell puts more padding between the helmet's shell and the player's head and AiR Maxx TPU jaw pads help soften lateral and frontal hits.

Great helmet
My son is in 5th grade and plays for AMFA and we bought him this helmet. It looks good and offers good protection. Sports Unlimited has the best price, I saved over $40 by not buying local.

Best on the Market
Best helmet on the market for the youth player. I have used the Riddell and the Schutt helmet beats it hands down. Kids love the helmet and it fits every head just right. The great part about the Schutt helmet is the inner padding can be replaced as the kid grows. No need to buy a new helmet if they outgrow it. just buy different size replacement pads.
