Built with the youth player in mind, the Schutt F7 LX1 Youth Football Helmet gives you the look of the increasingly popular F7 with features designed to cut down on the weight. The LX1 uses the same F7 shell with 3DM Tektonic Plate Technology that is meant to absorb more energy on hits to the helmet. It's built with the same Flexural Resistant Back Shelf and included the same five layers of energy dispersion as the full featured model. It even uses the same facemasks. The difference comes in the weight, where the LX1 is more youth friendly .15 lbs lighter. Schutt did that by removing the nose bumper and replacing it with traditional clear loop straps at the top of the helmet and taking out the internal cheek stabilizers. The interior is changed only in the lateral liner, where a SureFit air liner replaces the Radial Diffusion Liner. The liner is built with an increased number of pods to give it a more secure feel than other liners. The multi-layered front pad contains a mix of TPU, poron and comfort foam to give the helmet a feel that players will love. Combined with the striking look, it's a great choice for any youth player.

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.
