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.


Riddell's current model line of football helmets for the 2020/2021 season.

In the year 2020, the largest helmets manufacturer, company Riddell from Ohio (USA), comes with several major innovations, changes and new products in a product line for the football season 2020 and 2021:

The definitive end of the popular Speed ​​and Foundation helmet series
  • At the turn of 2018 and 2019, the sale of the original Speed ​​model was definitively terminated, and at the beginning of 2019 also the production of older types of facemasks called S-Bar was stopped. These were replaced by the new HS4 facemasks and the Speed ​​model was replaced by a completely new version of the Speed ​​Icon and Speed ​​Icon Classic helmets. Speed ​​Icon has in common with the old and well-known Speed ​​model basically only a shell, shape and part of the name, otherwise it is a completely new helmet. The equipment and internal elements of the helmet are redesigned or completely new to meet the demands of the players. The main change is in the facemask attachment system, which is based on HS4 lightweight masks (by the way one of the lightest on the market) and in addition to narrower clips uses the Quick Release Pin system in the upper and lower part instead of the classic screws. Another innovation is the nubuck lining of the inside of the helmet, which significantly increases comfort and absorbs shocks. Both S-Pads (jaw pads) are fully inflatable on the sides and the nozzle is improved to prevent frequent rupture of the inflatable needle as in the past with the Speed ​​version. The inner liners are new and use the same type of valve with a black screw cap and mount as the more expensive SpeedFlex. The helmet can be inflated in a total of 4 separate places independently of each other. The Classic Icon version is identical with the only exception it does not have a nubuck overliner (lining). The result is much easier maintenance of the inside of the helmet.

New SpeedFlex 2020
  • Probably the most popular and most widely used Riddell SpeedFlex helmet today has undergone significant innovation. For 2020 year, all models have a new chin strap restraint system. The original plastic strap at the bottom with the Riddell "Ratchet-Loc" system has been replaced by the new classic flexible nylon strap system (similar to conventional conventional chin guards) with the Riddell "Cam-Loc" system. This inconspicuous change has significantly changed the comfort of tightening the chin strap, putting on and taking off the helmet. Overall, this system has also been used successfully in the NFL and NCAA.
Old version - Ratchet-Loc:

New version 2020 - Cam-Loc:

New Technology - SpeedFlex Diamond
  • At the end of the year 2019, Riddell announced the start of sales of a completely new generation of SpeedFlex Diamond helmet built on 3D technology of the inner part of the helmet. This innovation will be launched in Europe this autumn. The price should be a bit higher than with the classic SpeedFlex model. A major change (except for design) when purchasing will be a larger number of sizes in total 6 compared to the usual practices when helmets for American football were usually produced in only 3 basic sizes..

Riddell Response to Address Aftermarket Accessories

  • Football helmets and face masks worn by professional, collegiate, high school and most youth football players are required to meet National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) performance standards.
  • NOCSAE certification is conducted by Safety Equipment Institute (SEI), an ISO 17065 conformity assessment organization. The certification process involves rigorous internal product testing, independent laboratory testing and a sound quality assurance program. Each helmet and face mask model is certified by SEI to meet NOCSAE performance standards.
  • The certification is void if the helmet or face mask is modified in any way. Riddell recommends against the use of any third party aftermarket accessories that alter the fit, form or function of the helmet or face mask as such modifications void the NOCSAE certification and render the helmet or face mask illegal for most organized play.


New Riddell Speedflex Diamond - Coming Soon (Autumn 2020)


Riddell partners with Carbon® to produce first-ever 3D printed football helmet.

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.
