A lot of youth football players are pretty hard-headed, but that’s no reason to play a game without properly protecting your noggin. You’re born with only so lots of brain cells and once they start dying off there’s no method to replace them. It is vital that you protect your head every time you practice and play tackle football as head injuries can occasionally lead to death. Make sure you look for a football helmet that has adequate protection, is cool and comfortable, and fits you properly.
This baby has been the king of the youth football helmets since it came out in 2002 as it’s worn by thousands of high school, college and pro players around the world. The Riddell Revolution is created for the purpose of decreasing concussions by being built with extended jaw protection, increased side padding, an integrated facemask attachment system, weight balance redistribution and elliptical air vents to keep you cool and dry. The curved shell extends to the jaw area and is PC created around the head’s center of gravity for front-to-back fit and stability. The Z-pads protect the side of your head and jaw, where concussions are caused.
The helmet’s air Fit system inflates the padding to give a custom match to every player’s head form. The Revolution also increases the gap between the shell for your head, and the faceguard program is built to isolate the attachment factors with the guard from the shell to decrease jarring from low-level impacts. This might be a light-weight helmet, but the safety, fit, and convenience are excellent. You can get the helmet in all NFL team types and are also custom produced. They sell for about $200 but are well worth it.
If the Riddell Revolution is the king, then the Schutt DNA is definitely the prince, as it’s also a superb piece of head protection equipment worn by many top competitive players. The spherical shape of the helmet is designed so that any head to head helmet collisions will just become glancing blows instead of full speed, head-on impacts. The company’s exclusive Skydex cushioning offers a lot of protection and comfort as it doesn’t break down quickly like a lot of helmet foam seems to do. The cushioning also conforms to the shape of your head to give you a consistent fit every time you wear the helmet. One other bonus which I’m sure you’ll appreciate is the Ultra Fresh treatment which protects the helmet from bacteria, mildew, fungus, and staining. I know football’s a tough sport, but there’s nothing wrong with feeling fresh and clean while playing.
The Adams A Three helmet is essentially a grown up model of the company’s Y Three youth helmet, and it’s a pretty strong design. It is made with a strong polycarbonate shell that is pre-drilled for a faceguard. Nevertheless, be aware that the faceguard has to be purchased separately. The A 3 has an expanded polypropylene liner along with a 3/8″ EVA foam liner to keep you comfortable and secured. If you’d prefer to add a little additional protection you can purchase a 5/8″ EVA liner and also the Adams Air Match Program liner which is also sold individually. The helmet does an excellent job of keeping the ship in location, and it gives you a pretty safe match. It also protects you fairly well with universal jaw pads, and it’s got a nose bumper to shelter the bridge of your nose. General, the helmet’s very protecting, light-weight, and comfortable, and keeps you pretty cool throughout play.
