Speedflex Visor

what is the best visor for a riddell speedflex

Football helmets and other football accessories are expensive investments and helmet visors are among the most important parts of your equipment bag. So when you're looking for a helmet visor, it's important to your safety and wallet that you purchase the visor that perfectly fits your helmet and facemask.

In fact, before ordering your football visor, it's important to know that major football brands like Schutt, Riddell and Xenith, design their helmets and facemasks differently. That means, before you buy a helmet visor, you're going to need to inspect the design of your facemask to see if the visor can properly be installed on it.

What visor fits riddell speedflex

Skill Facemask

Your football facemask and helmet configuration determines its compatibility with different visors. For instance, most skill position facemasks installed on the riddell speedflex will fit Oakley, Nike, VZR1 and Under Armour visors.

 

Lineman Facemask

On the other hand, lineman facemask or face mask designed for hitting positions with multiple cross bars will demand modifications to the visor and its clips prior to installation.

 

In some cases, the cross bars are too spaced or too close together and don't allow the visor clips to be properly installed. When that happens, we recommend using tie wraps instead of the plastic clips.

What do football visors do?

For athletes that need great visibility and eye protection, a football visor is a great addition to their equipment bag. Skill positions like QBs, RBs, TEs, WRs and DBs need a lot of visibility on the field and thus, wear a more open bar configuration facemask. Although less cross bars allows greater visibility, they also deliver less mouth and eye protection from hands and fingers. Luckily, a football visor can negate some of these dangers and improve protection.

What are the benefits of football visors?

A well designed football visor balances protection and performance. The visor has to be made of shatter-proof materials to protect the athletes eyes/mouth and feature anti-glare/anti-fog coatings to increase vision.

In fact, modern, advanced helmet visors enable improved performance and protection to the serious youth, high school, college, and pro player. From innovative lens coatings to the latest flexible polycarbonate materials, modern visors work to absorb more impact force while keeping your eyesight optimal on the field.

Which Football Visor Is Right For Me?

Helmet Visors are typically made in a variety of different colors, tints and shapes. Some visors are more lightweight, easier to install or more durable than others.
