We build gear for players. Those five words mean everything to us at Schutt® Sports. From the manufacturing line to the sales reps on the road to senior management keeping the machine running, all of us are focused on players. The dedicated leaders who devote themselves to the game; every game, every practice and every moment.
Schutt® Sports is the world’s leading maker of football helmets and faceguards. Three out of four professional football players take the field wearing Schutt® gear. Our ION 4D, AiR XP, and DNA™ line of helmets are the world’s only football helmets to feature TPU Cushioning – the same material used by the US military for helmets for fighter pilots and paratroopers. Our faceguards are the best in the world, both in form and in function. We design our gear for maximum performance based on standards dictated by the most important person in our world – the player.
We share the same passion, intensity and devotion to the game as the player. Players know what they want, they know why they want it and they know they’ll succeed when they get it. For nearly a century, we’ve made their gear - all with the sole purpose of empowering players to focus and perform at the top of their game.
Riddell has a long and storied history of innovation when it comes to sports equipment. John Tate Riddell started this company with a simple but brilliant idea to make sporting equipment safer, better, and easier to use for athletes. Many years, and hundreds of great ideas later, we’re still sporting better by making better equipment.
It all started with the removable cleat, the brainchild of Riddell who at the time was the Head Football Coach and Athletic Director of Evanston Township High School. This innovation was just one of many Riddell “firsts” that revolutionized the sporting equipment landscape.
In 1939, Riddell had another breakthrough. He invented and perfected the first plastic suspension helmet. Invented for the football field, the United States Government quickly saw its benefit for protecting troops in World War II.
Today, Riddell equipment is seen on football fields from coast-to-coast protecting every level of player from young men all the way up to NFL professionals. Our equipment is also prominently seen on baseball and softball fields, basketball and volleyball courts, lacrosse and soccer fields, and in track and field events. Why? It’s simple. With a proven commitment to creating the best sporting equipment, it’s tough to beat Riddell.
