To the casual observer, the Schutt AiR XP Pro VTD II Adult Football Helmet looks like a classic football helmet. However, beneath that classic shell is a cushioning and impact absorption technology that makes it among the top choices in the game. Worn at every level from professionals to youth leagues, the AiR XP shell is the last remaining traditional standoff helmet, making its rounded shape easily identifiable on the field. The Schutt Air XP VTD II is the best-scoring helmet in Virginia Tech’s STAR evaluation system, registering a value of 0.170 – the lowest ever recorded – taking its place at the top of Schutt’s three 5-star rated helmets.
Featuring VTD TPU cushioning, the helmet has been a consistent performer in the Virginia Tech Helmet Study as the original version set a new standard for safety testing. The Schutt AiR XP VTD II has many of the same characteristics as the original but also includes new & improved VTD TPU cushioning that is specifically designed to absorb both high and low impact velocity hits. Also new for 2017 are the more stable inter-link jaw pads that are mechanically attached to the helmet shell and allow for easy, customizable sizing. The helmet still features a TPU enhanced SUREFIT air liner that gives it the soft, pillow-like feel that Schutt’s helmets are known for and a twist release system to make facemask attachment easy.

Why is the Schutt AiR XP VTD II the Top Rated Helmet on the market today?
THE SCHUTT AIR XP PRO VTD II PROVIDES UNMATCHED PLAYER PROTECTION
As Schutt helmets prioritize safety, offering players unmatched protection, and the AiR XP Pro VTD is no exception. The helmet utilizes two types of thermoplastic urethane (TPU) to achieve the ideal level of player protection. The first TPU utilized is a Dual Layer TPU at the front of the helmet that cushions the head from frontal impacts and collisions. The second layer of TPU is a single layer designed to surround the rest of the head for complete cranial protection. The light construction of this side layer makes the helmet as comfortable as it is protective, providing essential safety for the sides and back of the head.
EXTREME PROTECTION WITHOUT COMPROMISING PERFORMANCE AND FEEL
The helmet’s Surefit TPU AiR Liner air liner creates an ideal fit and ensures that the helmet is built to last, and its air liner creates a pillowy cushion that will ensure players feel as comfortable as possible while staying protected.
Best of all, the added safety does not compromise player performance since the helmet is lightweight and versatile, ensuring players can move quickly and efficiently while still enjoying the safety and great feel of the Schutt Air XP Pro VTD. Additionally, comfortable jaw pads are included, which are designed to protect the jaw and mandible areas with a comfortable TPU that is designed to feel great while minimizing the harm of side and frontal hits alike.
