  • 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
  • If measurement falls between helmet sizes, choose the smaller size
  • Due to varying head sizes, the chart below is ONLY a recommendation


  • 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


  • 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 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful I would have expected nothing less from Riddell. The helmet fit was great and the structure of the helmet was excellent. My son loves it , he has had a Riddell helmet since he started playing football in the second grade. My father was a coach and I would not put my son's safety in any other helment. I was excited to see all of the information that came with the helmet if you had any questions. I received my order in 7days quicker than expected. I am very pleased with my purchase and Dicks Sporting goods customer support was fabulous to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Helmet Great fit, son loves it. Looks and feels sturdy. I'm comfortable putting his head in there.Got here fast. Only concern was we ordered a youth large but confirmation emails stated one size. Called Dick's and lady assured me that that what the vendor put on description but was ordered as a youth large. She was right.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product!!! Bought this recently for my 9 year old and he loves it. He reports it is incredibly comfortable and the helmet latch system makes putting it on and taking it off easy. Shipping was quicker than what was quoted, it was definitely money well spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SpeedFlex Helmet This helmet is a great helmet for a youth football player. It is light, safe, really sick looking, and it ships fast. I ordered mine a week and a half ago and it was delivered today! The only thing that was not great was the price, but for such an awesome helmet it is worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the helmet! My son's head is now perfectly protected with this helmet and when he wears it his confidence is high. No more head ringing and stars from hits. This helmet is worth the investment. I'm glad I made the choice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from No pump After receiving this helmet and paying 350 with taxes I would at least thought it would have come with the pump needed to adjust the helmet for fitting purposes. So I was disappointed that I had to go and spend 16.90 on a pump after I spent so much money on the helmet . My thought is it should have been included with the helmet . The helmet it self is nice and very well padded I'm hoping my grandson has a great season using this helmet as last year he got a concussion during practice and was not allowed to play . Only time will tell .
