The Light LS1 Youth Football helmet is designed to be the most protective youth helmet while also being the lightest. Light uses the same technology that protects our military pilots and special operations forces. Other helmets redirect energy, the technology Light uses absorbs the energy of impacts. In keeping the weight only to 2.9 lbs the LS1 improves athletic performance and is the lightest five star rated youth helmet available.
Why does weight matter? Less mass carried on the head=less rotation (whipping) of the neck. Less weight on the neck reduces the momentum of the brain as it accelerates and decelerates within the skull upon impact Lightweight also means less fatigue and improved tackling technique (more control of the head). Less weight on your head helps you keep it up when it’s late in the game. Along with being one of the safest helmets elite youth athletes can wear it also features the pro style look worn by professionals. Extremely comfortable and Guaranteed to Fit.
Composite shell that is light and ultra-strong.
Armor Foam (initially invented by NASA) that absorbs impact instead of redirecting it.
Light chrome-moly facemasks that balances the helmet and makes movements easy.
Weight of approximately two and a half pounds, improving both athletic performance and protection.
Multiple sizing options, fitment kit and customized helmets.
Technology only seen in auto racing, advanced fighter jets and other military applications.

I didn’t believe the other reviews.
I thought my speed flex would take weeks to come in the mail but it only took two days and I called customer service and they answered all of my questions

Looks great! Very sturdy. No impacts yet because spring drills and camp are in a few weeks but my son likes the fit and feel. I picked a mask from the choices given and it was supposed to be titanium but it feels heavier than a titanium mask of similar size. Otherwise very light compared to the Riddell Revolution he was issued by his high school team. The F7 and Xtech shoulders pads I purchased for him pair very well

Great Product and Customer Service
I bought my Riddell Speedflex and received an email about how my selection was not available. The customer service rep worked with me to get what I wanted. It was a great experience and shipping was fast. 10/10 would recommend.
