WARNING & WARRANTY INFORMATION

NO HELMET CAN PREVENT SERIOUS HEAD OR NECK INJURIES A PLAYER MIGHT RECEIVE WHILE PARTICIPATING IN FOOTBALL.

Do not use this helmet to butt, ram or spear an opposing player. This is in violation of the football rules and such use can result in severe head or neck injuries, paralysis or death to you and possible injury to your opponent. Contact in football may result in CONCUSSION-BRAIN INJURY which no helmet can prevent. Symptoms include: loss of consciousness or memory, dizziness, headache, nausea or confusion. If you have symptoms, immediately stop playing and report them to your coach, trainer and parents. Do not return to a game or practice until all symptoms are gone and you have received medical clearance. Ignoring this warning may lead to another and more serious or fatal brain injury.

The warranty on helmet shells is five (5) years for polycarbonate (Varsity) helmets and three (3) years for ABS (Youth) helmets, provided there has been normal use and proper maintenance. It is recommended that your helmet be reconditioned every year by a Riddell Factory Authorized Reconditioner. Proper maintenance requires reconditioning of your helmet at least every two (2) years by NOCSAE Licensed Reconditioner using only new factory replacement liners in the reconditioning process. Evidence of any of the following conditions will operate to void this warranty:

1) Failure to have the helmet reconditioned at least every two (2) years by a NOCSAE Licensed Reconditioner.
2) Installation of non-OEM parts whenever a liner replacement is necessary.
3) Where shells have been damaged by a chemical reaction from the use of incompatible materials such as:
a. Attachment of a guard, face mask or component of another manufacturer or mismated material.
b. Use of cleaners, waxes or paints of another manufacturer or failure to follow recommended cleaning an painting instructions.

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR HELMET SIZE

FIRST STEP
MEASURE YOUR HEAD

Wrap a measuring tape around your head, just above the eyebrows. Note your size at the point of overlap. 

If you do not have a measuring tape, simply use a piece of string and mark the point of overlap, then measure the string. 

Use the size chart to establish the size helmet you should wear. 

SIZE CHART

SIZE
HEAD CIRCUMFERENCE
XXS
19 1/4" - 19 5/8"
XS
20" - 20 3/8"
S
20 3/4" - 21 1/4"
M
21 5/8" - 22"
L
22 3/8" - 22 3/4"
XL
23 1/8" - 23 1/2"

If you are between helmet sizes, choose the smaller size.
Due to varying head shapes, sizes are only RECOMMENDATIONS.

HOW TO ACHIEVE PROPER FIT

  • Step 1
    CHECKING HEAD SIZE
    • Wrap a cloth measuring tape around the circumference of head
    • Measure with tape approvimately 1" above the player's eyebrows
    • Record measurement
    • Use the Riddell circumference chart below to select the proper helmet size
    • If measurement falls between helmet sizes, choose the smaller size.
  • Step 2
    PUTTING ON / TAKING OFF HELMET
    Putting on helmet:
    • Hold helmet with thumbs over bottom of jaw pads
    • Place index fingers into ear holes
    • Pull helmet down into position
    Taking off helmet:
    • Unbuckle chin strap from bottom snaps
    • Place index fingers into ear holes
    • Press thumbs into bottom of jaw pads
    • Lift helmet up and off the head
  • Step 3
    ADJUSTING HELMET HEIGHT
    • Adjust inflatable pads using a Riddell inflation bulb
    and a well-lubricated Riddell inflation needle
    • Insert needle
    • Pump Riddell inflation bulb to achieve proper fit
    • Remove needle
    • Front of helmet should be approximately
    1” above the player’s eyebrows
  • Step 4
    ADJUSTING BACK/SIDE LINER
    • Inflate for snug, comfortable fit front-to-back
    and side-to-side
  • Step 5
    ADJUSTING JAW PADS
    • Jaw pads should feel firm against the face
    • Insert needle into valve at exterior jaw flap
    • Inflate jaw pad
    • If non-inflatable jaw pads feel loose, change to a thicker size
    • If non-inflatable jaw pads feel tight, change to a thinner size
  • Step 6
    CHECKING FOR PROPER FIT
    • The skin of the forehead should move with the front pad. There should be no room for twisting
    • If helmet slides easily over the forehead, inflate helmet
    liners or try a smaller helmet
    • Ensure a proper fit: Interlock hands on top of helmet and press down. Player should feel pressure on crown of head, not brow. Pressure on brow indicates improper fit. Front of helmet should be approximately 1” above the eyebrows.
    • To avoid injury or discomfort, never wear a helmet positioned too high or too low
  • Step 7
    ADJUSTING CHIN STRAP
    To adjust soft or hard cup chin straps:
    • Buckle top and bottom of chin strap into the snaps
    above and below ear holes
    - Cup should be centered and snug over chin
    - Adjust chin strap until cup is firmly pressed against chin
    • When buckled, helmet should feel comfortable and snug
    • Chin straps are available in multiple sizes

THE IMPORTANCE OF PROPER FIT

BEFORE PLAY

BEFORE YOU BEGIN, PLEASE READ AND FAMILIARIZE YOURSELF WITH THE WARNING LABELS THAT COME WITH YOUR NEW HELMET.  AND REMEMBER: A PROPERLY FITTED HELMET IS AN IMPORTANT FIRST STEP IN PLAYER PROTECTION. 

NEW RULE FOR LOSS OF HELMET DURING PLAY
If a player loses his helmet (other than as the result of a foul, like a face mask penalty), it will be treated like an injury. The player must leave the game and is not allowed to participate for the next play. Current injury timeout rules guard against using this rule to gain an advantage from stopping the clock. Additionally, if a player loses his helmet, he must not continue to participate in play to protect him from injury. Data collected during the 2011 season indicated that helmets came off of players more than two times per game.
This past NFL season the League tracked occurrences in which a helmet came off a player's head during game play. With each occurrence, team equipment managers reported the helmet's make and model, size, face mask style and chin strap style. At season's end, the League reported the results back to the equipment managers. Some teams had minimal occurrences, while others had as many as thirty-nine. One occurrence is too many. Below you will find a few steps to help prevent helmets coming off during game play.

  • Attain player and organizational support. Only the player and his organization can ensure the player is wearing his helmet and chin strap properly. Without this support, you are fighting a losing battle.
  • Check and maintain all snaps and buckles. Snaps and buckles tend to fatigue throughout the year and should be switched out on a regular basis.
  • Ensure the player is wearing the proper size helmet. Players tend to favor bigger helmets in order to gain more comfort.
  • Make sure the Jaw (S, Z or Face Frame Pads) are secure against the face and mandible. Pads should feel snug but not tight.
  • Make sure that the chin strap is centered under the player's chin and the straps are taut and even on both sides.
  • Don't over-inflate the helmets. Over inflation leads to more rotation, which can cause the helmet to roll and slide off the player's head.
  • Check and maintain face masks on a regular basis. After a few games face masks start to spread and can loosen the helmet's fit.

WHAT IS A CONCUSSION?

Concussions are traumatic brain injuries that must be taken seriously. Concussions can occur in any sport or recreational activity. That is why all coaches, parents, and athletes need to learn concussion signs and symptoms and what to do if a concussion occurs. Below you will find information detailing concussion recognition, management and prevention.

PROTECTION TOUR

The inaugural USA Football Protection Tour is a health and safety program that educates youth football players, parents, coaches and administrators on the importance of proper equipment fitting, tackling fundamentals and concussion awareness. At each tour stop, USA Football, with the support of the NFL team in that market, will conduct a free one-day event forlocal youth football leagues that will deliver expert-driven health and safety content for coaches, parents
and players.

Each event session is limited to 150 athletes plus their parents. Each participant will be properly fitted for a helmet by a Riddell expert. If you have your helmet - bring it. If not, we’ll fit one for you and provide you with the proper measurements to share with your youth football league.
