Q.

What is the difference between the Varsity ION 4D and the Youth ION 4D?

A.

As with every  football helmet we make with both a youth model and a varsity model,  the two models are not intended to be used interchangeably. The Varsity ION 4D is intended for use at a varsity level (High School and older) while the Youth ION 4D is intended for use at the youth level (Jr. High and younger).

The Varsity ION 4D features a premium grade, polyurethane liner – designed to handle the stress and rigors of varsity, collegiate and professional football players. In addition, the jaw pads that come standard with the Varsity ION 4D are sized for older, bigger players. Also, the two chin straps included with every ION 4D (the Fusion Hard Cup and the traditional 4-Point High Deep Cup) are designed for varsity players.

The Youth ION 4D features a vinyl liner that is specifically designed for the youth market. The jaw pads that come standard with the Youth ION 4D are sized for smaller, younger players. And the chin straps that come with each Youth ION 4D (a 4-Point High hard cup and a traditional 4-Point High soft cup) are designed for youth players.

 

Q.

What is the difference between the Varsity DNA Pro+ and the Youth DNA Pro+?

A.

The Varsity DNA Pro+ is specifically designed for the varsity player; it’s made of a durable Polycarbonate shell that withstands more force. It comes equipped with 7/8" jaw pads to accommodate most varsity players (other sizes available).It also features a varsity soft cup chin strap that is designed to fit older, bigger players.

The Youth DNA Pro+ is specifically designed for the youth player; it’s made of a durable ABS shell that’s lighter weight than the varsity model. It comes equipped with 1 3/8” jaw pads that are thicker in size to accommodate the smaller and thinner face of youth athletes. It also features a youth soft cup chin strap with longer straps; the youth cup is smaller and is designed to fit younger, smaller players while the longer straps work in tandem with the SUREFIT slots that bring the chin strap directly on the chin – closer to the face providing a secure fit.

Football Helmet Warranty, Terms, Conditions and Warnings

A.

Helmet Warranty -
The warranty for poly-carbonate shells (Vengeance DCT, Vengeance VTD, AiR XP Pro, AiR XP Pro  Vision, AiR XP Pro VTD, AiR XP, DNA PRO+,  is five (5) years. In order to honor the shell warranty (after the first year of use) for Vengeance DCT, Vengeance VTD, AiR XP Pro, AiR XP, AiR XP Pro  Vision, DNA PRO+ reconditioning by a NAERA certified reconditioner is required every other year. Use only factory replacement parts to validate the warranty. The warranty for ABS shells (Youth Vengeance DCT, Vengeance DCT Hybrid+, Vengeance DCT Hybrid, Youth AiR XP Pro, Youth DNA PRO+, XP Hybrid+, XP Hybrid, Recruit Hybrid+, Recruit Hybrid and AiR Standard III) is three (3) years. Although reconditioning is not required to validate the warranty period for youth helmets, it is recommended that a regular repair and replacement program be adopted until the helmet is retired.


Air liners are warranted for a period of one (1) year. Helmets covered under the warranties should be returned in whole with all internal components intact to the Schutt Sports dealer from whom purchased, along with evidence of the purchase date, for return to the Schutt Sports Manufacturing Company. Schutt will inspect the helmet and will determine the disposition of repair or adjustments, or replacement free of charge.


Use of Third Party and After-Market Products -
All Schutt helmets and face guards are manufactured and certified to meet the current NOCSAE performance standards. Alterations, additions or any component deletions or removals made to the helmet or face guard that do not follow the manufacturer’s guidelines may void any applicable warranty to the product and will void the NOCSAE certification of the helmet or faceguard. Schutt Sports recommends against the use of any third party, aftermarket product or accessory that alters the fit, form or function of the helmet or face guard. Third party, aftermarket products that are used on a Schutt helmet and do not follow manufacturer’s guidelines will void the NOCSAE certification and make the helmet or face mask illegal to use in most organized football leagues, games or other activities


Helmet Maintenance/Shell Cleaning -
Maintenance of the Schutt Helmet System is very simple. Any worn component part is easily replaced or changed, and if a fitting adjustment needs to be made accessory parts may be used. These accessories are available from your local Schutt Sports Dealer.


The Model 8500 Sideline Kit is pre-packaged with many of the items needed to perform routine maintenance for your  helmets. If the helmet shell requires cleaning to remove old decals, residue, scuff marks, etc., the Model 7759 Schutt Helmet Care Kit is recommended for this purpose. This kit contains cleaners, polish, sanitizer and deglue to clean 200 - 300 helmets. Other products may void warranties and could adversely affect the protective capabilities of the helmet.


Do not apply solvents or strong cleaning agents to the helmet shell, liner or interior parts. Many products sold commercially over the counter contain components that will adversely affect the Schutt Helmet System. If you have a question whether a solvent or cleaner is approved, please contact Schutt Sports for information. If, in cleaning the helmet, the outside WARNING label becomes detached, the label must be replaced. Call Schutt Sports Customer service for new labels.


Helmet Useful Life - The Schutt Football Helmet has no Useful Life policy or Mandatory Retirement Age, provided the helmet/equipment is properly reconditioned on an annual basis, through an authorized Schutt reconditioner. We do, however, suggest that institutions/teams adopt a program of systematic reconditioning & replacement of helmets as no helmet will last forever. This will help to balance the cost of helmets from year to year as well as keep inventory up to date. Do not use an air liner that is damaged.

 

Important — Warranty ­— Performance -
You may replace or change any part or component of the Schutt Helmet System as long as you follow the manufacturer’s guidelines.

Air Liners/Needles -

Glycerine is the proper inflation needle lubricant. DO NOT use a petroleum based product such as petroleum jelly.

Substances applied to the helmet shell which are not compatible with the shell material can cause deterioration, embrittlement and/or breakage, thereby exposing the wearer to unnecessary risk and danger. Usage of non-compatible paints, polishes and/or cleaners will render the helmet shell unsafe for further use and will void warranties. Use only Schutt approved primer, paint, thinner, polishes, and cleaners. For proper helmet painting, contact a NAERA Licensed Reconditioner or Schutt Service Center.Failure to comply can destroy shell integrity and void warranties.

WARNING -

Keep your head up. Do not butt, ram, spear or strike an opponent with any part of this helmet or faceguard. This is a violation of football rules and may cause you to suffer severe brain or neck injury, including paralysis or death and possible injury to your opponent. Contact in football may result in Concussion/Brain Injury which no helmet can prevent. Symptoms include: loss of consciousness or memory, dizziness, headache, nausea or confusion. If you have symptoms, immediately stop and report them to your coach, trainer and parents. Do not return to a game or contact until all symptoms are gone and you receive medical clearance. Ignoring this warning may lead to another and more serious or fatal brain injury. NO HELMET SYSTEM CAN PROTECT YOU FROM SERIOUS BRAIN AND/OR NECK INJURIES INCLUDING PARALYSIS OR DEATH. TO AVOID THESE RISKS, DO NOT ENGAGE IN THE SPORT OF FOOTBALL. Remember, this warning is of the utmost importance.  Important rule changes have eliminated the head as a primary and initial contact area for blocking and tackling techniques.  Injury prevention is a primary responsibility of the coaches and the player.  Coaching techniques and strict observance of the rules are critical factors in minimizing and preventing serious injuries. Do not use any liquid thread locking materials when attaching the faceguard to the helmet as it may have adverse effects on the helmet.
