Keep your young football star primed for action and safe on the field with the Riddell® SpeedFlex Helmet. Patented Side Impact Protection (PSIP™) minimizes energy on impact to the mandible region, while the innovative Flex System throughout the shell, facemask and facemask attachment system also helps to reduce impact force to a player's head. The SpeedFlex Youth Football Helmet also features a stainless steel HS4 facemask.

A Composite Energy Management System helps absorb energy with pads that keep their shape over time, while the liner system improves comfort on the players head by conforming to the players specific shape. Designed with a variety of features to keep players safer, the SpeedFlex helmet is one of the most popular on the market because it gives everything athletes need to stay safe and perform their best

  • 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 2 out of 5 by from Quick release stuck I’ve noticed the quick release malfunctions especially in cold temps. It’s the worst, frustrating time! I still have not received a response from customer service on what I should do. Bought it at Dicks a year ago, they had no suggestions either.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Helmet Money Can Buy My son plays travel football and I wanted to keep him safe. We considered a xenith because it is an emerging brand, but ultimately chose the speed flex and it was a great decision. More pro's and college players wear speed flex helmet and he is safe in it. Prepare to buy a pump kit from riddell. The Rachel chin strap took getting used to, but he can now put on his own helmet and loves it. Safety, comfort, fit and innovation simply make this the best helmet on the market.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money! We bought this for our son (10 years old). It was his first year playing contact football. My condition on him playing was that he had a helmet that would do the best job protecting his head. I know nothing about football. So, after seeking opinions from previous football players and a nurse whose son also plays football, we decided to go with Riddell. We have not been disappointed. It looks great, my son is able to tighten it by himself, and it is comfortable. He has had a had a few hard hits and has not had a concussion yet (knock on wood!). I also like that it has the inflatable pads on the inside... however, we just used a bike tire pump rather than purchasing the "official" pump for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Protection at all cost Despite the price of the helmet i think it's well worth the extra cash shelled out on it. Compared to other helmets the padding and safety of this helmet is far better than anything else out there. As I told my wife the price of the helmet is far cheaper than a concussion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
