Who produces the best football helmet Riddell Schutt or Adams?

There are only two major players in the football helmet business anymore: Schutt and Riddell. The two companies own about 95% of the helmet market. Riddell is the official licensee of the NFL but Schutt has greater marketshare overall. Schutt owns about 60% marketshare at all levels of play, including nearly 30% in the NFL. Riddell has been in the helmet business longer, over 70 years. Schutt entered the business in the mid 80s, after purchasing the AiR helmet and technology from Bike. As to who makes the better helmet, it's really a matter of personal preference, if you're a player. Some players swear by Riddell helmets like the Revolution, Speed and VSR-4. Other players wouldn't give up their Schutt XP helmet, or their ION4D or AiR Advantage. Schutt seems to have the edge, in terms of adapting superior technology more quickly into their helmets. Schutt introduced SKYDEX padding - a thermoplastic urethane cushioning system - five years ago and continues to improve it. The latest generation absorbs up to 55% more force of impact than helmets with traditional foam padding. Schutt is also pushing the envelope with regards to how core body temperature and body temperature inside the helmet greatly affect a player's performance. Riddell's helmets still use the same foam padding that has been the staple in football helmets for 30 years. They introduced the Revolution helmet in 2003, claiming that it reduced the risk of concussions by over 30%. The medical study that supported that claim compared large-standoff helmets, like the Revolution, to traditional helmet shells. Industry experts and doctors have disputed the claims of that study ever since. If you're asking this question in the hope of receiving guidance as to what helmet/s to buy, you're better off trying the premier helmets from both Riddell and Schutt. Whichever one you like best and fits the best, is the best helmet for you.

When was the first football helmet invented?

In the earliest days of football in the 1860s some players simply tied a bandana around their heads. There weren't even leather football helmets then. In those days there were brutal plays. Players actually trampled on opposing team members, yet there was no protection for players' heads. 18 deaths were reported. The earliest leather football helmets were invented by a Navy player in 1893 after his doctor warned him that one more kick to the head could kill or paralyze him for life. The player asked a local blacksmith to improvise a leather harness hat to protect his head. Thus the first football helmet was born. Soon other players created additional styles of leather football helmets to protect their heads and ears. Styles included the early beehive leather football helmet, the flat-top leather football helmets, and the dogear leather football helmet. The colors began to show up on early 1940s leather football helmets. Before that most helmets were plain natural leather either brown, cordovan, or black. Color leather football helmets allowed the quarterback to better see the receiver at long distances when he was far down the field. So more and more teams began to paint their leather football helmets to put some visibility sizzel into their games. Gradually in the late 1940s the leather football helmet began to be replaced by early plastics. However many of the early plastic football helmets shattered and caused injury. So, the leather football helmet survived through the World War II years and lingered into the early 1950s. Some pooreer high school teams and JR high teams used old leather helmets right into the 1960s and 70s. But gradually the old leather football helmet was replaced by the plastics.
