The Truth About Reconditioned Football Helmets

Is your football helmet too old to reuse?

Many high school football programs will reuse their helmets year after year, even handing down older helmets to the younger squads before finally retiring them.

Truth about reconditioned football helmets

Studies show football helmets can be recertified safe after 10 seasons of use and more!

Older helmets can be reconditioned by helmet manufacturers to maintain their look and their safety. Old helmet decals and stripes are peeled away, face guards and hardware are removed, scratches and nicks are filled and the entire surface is repainted. Helmets are inspected and ultimately recertified for safe use. This allows new decals and stripes to be applied by the football team for the new season.

Football programs have to weigh the development of newer and arguably safer helmet design and technology, plus recent studies of the effect of concussions on players, against their athletic budget. Reconditioned helmets can save 80% or more versus the cost of a new helmet.
