2020 Helmet Laboratory Testing Results
The NFLPA test shows a list of helmets that can be recommended and that meet basic safety standards. The test also publishes (in the red table below) helmets that are PROHIBITED. These are mainly all Rawlings models and old Schutt Air Advantage models, which are no longer produced and appear only sporadically on the market. There is still a number of sellers who offer cheap prohibited helmets. The NFLPA also says that a helmet older than 10 years is automatically considered prohibited regardless of type and manufacturer. Helmets marked gray in the table are permitted, but are no longer manufactured.

The Riddell SpeedFlex Diamond Helmet Delivers Next Generation Innovation with New Digitally Manufactured Football Helmet Liner.
Riddell and Carbon have partnered to bring customized, digital design innovation to head protection through Riddell’s new Diamond helmet platform. Powered by Carbon, the new platform features a 3D printed lattice liner that is digitally manufactured using Carbon’s proprietary Digital Light Synthesis™ (DLS™) technology. The technology is initially available in the Riddell SpeedFlex Precision Diamond helmet model, which features Riddell’s Precision-Fit head scanning and helmet fitting process. The result is next-generation head protection for today’s athletes--a customized, 3D printed helmet liner precisely contoured to the athlete’s head.
“Riddell is known for head protection leadership. Our partnership with Carbon, Silicon Valley’s leading digital manufacturer, reinforces our commitment to advancing on-field protection for football players,” said Riddell Senior Vice President of Research and Product Development, Thad Ide. “As the first to use digital manufacturing in football helmets, Riddell continues our industry leadership by embracing promising new technologies and advancing our innovation roadmap today and into the future.”
“At Carbon, we believe in using the power of technology to advance innovation. Our platform enables companies like Riddell to make products that were never thought possible,” said CEO and Co-Founder Dr. Joseph DeSimone. “With this partnership, Riddell becomes one of the largest users of 3D printers in the world. We are proud to be at the forefront of digital manufacturing of protective equipment."
The core technology uses a custom designed, highly damping elastomer from Carbon, in the form of a lattice structure to create the helmet liner. The Carbon Lattice Engine leverages physical simulation and optimization techniques to tune structures to further manage both linear and rotational impact energies. Each helmet is made up of more than 140,000 individual struts, carefully orchestrated into patterns for attenuating impact forces while providing excellent comfort and fit. The result is a Carbon DLS-printed, custom fit, impact absorbing helmet liner designed to advance the state-of-the-art in head protection. Riddell’s proprietary database of over 5 million impacts captured by Riddell’s smart helmet technology will allow for custom and individualized tuning of lattice structures in the future.
Carbon’s recent breakthroughs in software, hardware and materials make the Diamond platform possible. The very latest advancements in Carbon’s platform include the new L1 printer and custom resin material. The L1, also being unveiled by Carbon today, is specially designed and built to produce at scale. The custom resin used to print the lattice structures in the Diamond liners was designed specifically to meet Riddell’s rigorous performance requirements.
“As someone who’s spent thousands of hours watching film, I know that no two players play the same way,” said Riddell Strategic Advisor and Brand Ambassador Peyton Manning. “They all have different styles and tendencies on the field, which is another key benefit to Riddell’s Diamond technology. With the SpeedFlex Precision Diamond, players are not only experiencing the latest in head protection, they can also dictate where the helmet is positioned to improve sightlines and maximize field vision.”
Riddell SpeedFlex Precision Diamond helmets were used by select players on most NFL teams during the 2018 season and will be commercially available on a limited basis at the elite level starting in 2019.
The Riddell InSite Impact Response System is a new integrated monitoring and alerting tool designed specifically for the proactive protection of football players. Riddell developed InSite based on its Head Impact Telemetry System (HITS) and Sideline Response System (SRS), a technology that has analyzed nearly 5 million impacts since 2003.

The Varsity F7 helmet is the newest helmet in the Schutt family. This helmet features the new Tectonic Plate 3DM system to help improve the management of rotational energy and impact absorption. These moveable plates along with five other layers of protection create the ultimate energy management system. The F7 has the TPU Surefit AiR liner allowing air to move more freely creating a more secure and customized fit. The new F7 face guards offered features a tapered design for increased range of motion and decreased impact area promoting more of a glancing blow on frontal impacts.
