DeForest Buckener’s Riddell Speedflex Helmet

DeForest Buckner made the switch to the Riddell Speedflex in 2017 and has been wearing it ever since.

The Riddell Speedflex initially debuted in 2014 and has been a player (and fan) favorite ever since. Not only does the helmet look great, it’s one of the most protective lids currently on the market. The helmet scored a perfect 5/5 on the VT Helmet Rating Scale and is one of the safest helmets to ever participate in the study. The key to the Speedflex’s success is the hexagon flex panel on the front of the helmet. This panel flexes to absorb contact and keep it from getting to your head. The Speedflex is an excellent option for any defensive lineman out there because it does a great job protecting you from both low and high velocity impacts.

You can get your own Speedflex for about $425 from Riddell.com.
