Riddell is bringing performance and protection to the masses. The masses of high school and college football players that is. The company is introducing its Riddell 360 for this season of football. The Riddell 360 helmet has several features that increase safety, yet it’s still affordable for most teams and individual players.
The helmet uses strategically placed hinge clips, and a flexing facemask that reduces force from frontal impacts. Energy is redirected away from the head. An enhanced occipital lock cradles the head for more comfort, fit and stability. All these features also help the helmet stay on and protect the head during tough plays. Riddell also used an aggressive design that includes extreme detailing and oversized vent holes, which allow air circulation around the player’s head. The nexagonal liner system includes a removable, moisture resistant overliner, another comfort feature.
Riddell already earned a five-star helmet rating from the engineers at Virginia Tech.
