Why can't the helmets be worn?

- Short answer ... lawyers and insurance companies. Riddell is required to place "no-wear" devices inside the helmets as a licensing requirement. The purpose is to avoid any injury liability on the part of the school if someone wore their helmet and got injured.

Can these "no-wear" devices be removed?

Are the authentic helmets exactly the same as those the players wear?

- The construction and materials in the helmets are the same. Any difference is cosmetic and the result of licensing negotiations with each school. For example, whether the front and rear helmet bumpers say Riddell or Schutt or the school's name/nickname. Also, many of the small decals on the back of on-field helmets, i.e., conference decals, are applied by the school and are not included on the public sale helmets.

What if I think there is a problem with the decals on the helmet I received?

- We will replace any helmet that has mis-applied decals. A bubble in a decal can usually be easily fixed by using a hair dryer on it and then smoothing down the bubble using a soft cloth. All decals for each helmet model are the same size and color, so size and color are typically not reasons for a full-refund return.

I've heard that some helmets sold online are actually counterfeit. Is this true?

- Unfortunately, yes. We have seen unlicensed counterfeit college helmets for sale online. These unscrupulous sellers buy blank helmet shells in a school's color, slap black market decals on them and sell them to unsuspecting buyers. Remember ... if the price is too low, beware!
