Another dynamic helmet designed for the youth market, the Recruit Hybrid® from Schutt Sports is an affordable alternative for the youth through junior high football player. The Recruit Hybrid® showcases the sleek, aerodynamic shell of the DNA™, which the players love, but also features the advanced level of protection parents desire. That same spherical shape helps turn aside some of the biggest hits, changing the helmet-to-helmet collisions into more glancing blows.
See those unique dart-shaped holes on the helmet crown? Yea, they look cool but they’re also a functional ventilation system, circulating air to keep you cool.
The Recruit Hybrid® is an offspring of the DNA™ Pro™ helmet, which has been designed to not only meet NOCSAE standards, but also the tougher standards being championed by Biokinetics and Associates Ltd. Their standards are based on recent research conducted on behalf of the NFL. The DNA™ Pro™ was a finalist for the 2004 Sports Product of the Year because it changed the way everyone thinks about football helmets.
That’s the kind of heritage the Recruit Hybrid® brings to the field, which means it’s the perfect choice for any coach or parent looking for an affordable, premium helmet.
