2016 Schutt AiR XP PRO VTD II Adult Football Helmet
It is no secret that football has been taking steps to make the game safer, specifically with regards to the negative health consequences of concussions. From the American Medical Association (AMA) to the NFL's policies toward concussions, reducing concussions is at the forefront of football safety discussions.
In order to reduce concussions, no piece of equipment can have a greater impact than a high-quality helmet that is specifically designed to increase player safety. Virginia Tech researchers are well aware of this fact, which is one of the reasons that led them to create a ranking system for safe helmets in a wide range of sports. The study ranks the safest helmets for each sport with a 5-star rating, with less safe helmets having lower star ratings.

Here are a few of the reasons the Schutt AiR XP Pro VTD II ranks at the pinnacle of adult football helmets for player safety.
The Schutt AiR XP Pro VTD II Provides Unmatched Player Protection
As Schutt helmets prioritize safety, offering players unmatched protection, and the AiR XP Pro VTD is no exception. The helmet utilizes two types of thermoplastic urethane (TPU) to achieve the ideal level of player protection. The first TPU utilized is a Dual Layer TPU at the front of the helmet that cushions the head from frontal impacts and collisions. The second layer of TPU is a single layer designed to surround the rest of the head for complete cranial protection. The light construction of this side layer makes the helmet as comfortable as it is protective, providing essential safety for the sides and back of the head.
Extreme Protection without Compromising Performance and Feel
The helmet's Surefit TPU AiR Liner air liner creates an ideal fit and ensures that the helmet is built to last, and its air liner creates a pillowy cushion that will ensure players feel as comfortable as possible while staying protected.
Best of all, the added safety does not compromise player performance since the helmet is lightweight and versatile, ensuring players can move quickly and efficiently while still enjoying the safety and great feel of the Schutt Air XP Pro VTD. Additionally, comfortable jaw pads are included, which are designed to protect the jaw and mandible areas with a comfortable TPU that is designed to feel great while minimizing the harm of side and frontal hits alike.
The AiR XP Pro VTD II Looks As Great As It Protects and Feels
The Schutt AiR XP Pro VTD II matches its state of the art protection and comfort with a traditional look evocative of classic helmets, without the added danger of a traditional helmet. This blend of a timeless helmet in appearance with the modern technology of high-end helmet protection makes this Schutt helmet a must for athletes who want a great-looking helmet that feels great, and most importantly, protects players and their long-term health.
