It's never too early to start thinking about next year - please read before shipping an item to Riddell for reconditioning and recertification.

Never send an item to Riddell for reconditioning without speaking to a Consumer Services rep first.
Riddell is not responsible for any items sent without the proper paperwork, including the evaluation form used in your inspection.

All interior pieces should remain inside your helmet intact when shipping for reconditioning.

Please remove all chinstraps, visors/eyeshields & mouthguards prior to shipping any helmets.
These items will be discarded upon receipt. Riddell is not responsible for any helmet accessories received along with reconditioning orders.

Face masks may be left attached to helmets sent in for reconditioning. 
Face masks are inspected but are not reconditioned. A face mask deemed unsuitable for play during inspection will be noted during your follow-up call. You will have the opportunity to add a new face mask to your reconditioning order for an additional cost at this time.

Individual reconditioning orders average 4 weeks turnaround.
