Ezekiel Elliott’s Riddell Speedflex Helmet

Ezekiel Elliott is wearing the Riddell Speedflex. He has been in the Speedflex since 2014, when he was at Ohio State. Zeke’s speedflex is a “Precision-Fit” model. For these special helmets, Riddell scans a player’s head and then creates custom pads to fit them perfectly. Check out Riddell’s process below.

The Speedflex is hands down, the most popular helmet in football and is also one of the safest. According to the Virginia Tech Helmet research, the ‘flex scores a perfect 5/5 on their safety scale. That hexagon panel you see on the crown actually flexes, hence the name speedflex, to absorb force from a hit. This is a super innovative helmet and has been one of the best since it’s debut in 2014.

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