In the National Football League, players are outfitted with top-of-the-line equipment to ensure their safety on the field. This includes helmets, which have come a long way in terms of design and functionality over the years. In this blog post, we’ll look at one of the best NFL helmets of all time the Riddell SpeedFlex.
Riddell is the official helmet provider for the NFL, and its current model is the SpeedFlex. First introduced in 2014, the SpeedFlex features a number of advancements that make it one of the safest helmets on the market. One key feature is the FlexSystem, which allows for different levels of protection depending on where the impact occurs. The SpeedFlex is also equipped with inflatable pads that can be adjusted to fit each individual player’s head size and shape.
While the Riddell SpeedFlex is the current standard in NFL helmets, there are many other models that have been used over the years. One of the most popular was Riddell’s VSR4, which was used by more than 60% of NFL players in 2008. The VSR4 was replaced by the Revolution in 2002, which was itself replaced by the Revolution IQ in 2006. Other popular models include Schutt’s Air Advantage and Xenith’s X1EQ. No matter what model they’re wearing, all NFL players have one goal in mind: to stay safe on the field. Thanks to advances in helmet technology, they’re now better equipped than ever before to do just that.
