According to Riddell, the innovative design is supposed to help reduce head injury.

The SpeedFlex features The Flex System, with flexibility engineered into the helmet’s shell, face mask and face mask attachment system with hinge clips to help reduce impact force transfer to the athlete.

Clemson's spring game is scheduled to kick off April 9 at 2:30 p.m. It will be interesting to see what fans think of the new helmets in action.
