  • A properly fitted helmet is an important first step in player protection. To determine head size, wrap a cloth measuring tape around the circumference of the player's head. Measure approximately 1" above the player's eyebrows. Record measurement and refer to chart below:


  • S: Hat Size = up to 6-1/2"; Circumference = up to 20-3/8"
  • M: Hat Size = 6-1/2" - 7"; Circumference = 20-3/8" - 22"
  • L: Hat Size = 7" - 7-1/2"; Circumference = 22" - 23-1/2"
  • XL: Hat Size = 7-1/2" and up; Circumference = 23-1/2" and up
  • If measurement falls between helmet sizes, choose the smaller size
  • Due to varying head sizes, the chart above is ONLY a recommendation


  • Interlock hands on top of helmet and press down - player should feel pressure on crown of their head, not their brow
  • Skin of the forehead should move with the front pad
  • Front of helmet should be about 1" above the eyebrows
  • Jaw pads should feel firm against their face
  • There should be no room for twisting
  • If the helmet slides easily over the forehead, inflate liners or try a smaller helmet
  • To avoid injury or discomfort, never wear a helmet positioned too high or too low


  • Buckle top and bottom chin strap into snaps
  • Cup should be centered and snug over their chin
  • Adjust chin strap until cup is firmly pressed against their chin
  • When buckled, helmet should feel comfortable and snug

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product, but also outstanding customer service! The SpeedFlex helmet is as good as advertised, but I was even more impressed with Dick's customer service. When we received the helmet, we mistakenly thought that one of the inflation points was defective. (We found out later that one of the inflation points is used for adult models, but is not utilized in the youth models - by design.) Before we found out from Riddell that the helmet was, in fact, NOT defective, I contacted Dick's via telephone and was told that they would ship a replacement OVERNIGHT so that my son would have it in time for his game - no questions asked! (When we found out that the helmet did not need to be replaced, cancelling the order for the second helmet was just as easy.) We are now loyal Dick's customers! October 25, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I wanted the best helmet for my son This is the best helmet there is to protect my son while playing football. He loves it and I love it! August 31, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Helmet My 10 year old son states that this is the most comfortable helmet after 4 years of tackle football that he has worn. After all my research this was the top rated helmet for concussion prevention. I cannot put a price on that so I bought this helmet and glad I did! August 13, 2016
