The Youth ION 4D™ is unlike any helmet that’s ever been designed before. The sleek, aggressive styling of the shell includes the Schutt Energy Wedge Faceguard System. The faceguard is integrated right into the shell and is stronger and more durable than classic faceguards! The Youth ION 4D also features TPU Cushioning superior to older, traditional foam padding. It eliminates any break-in period and makes it the most comfortable helmet you’ll ever wear – right out of the box!
TPU Cushioning System
We introduced Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU) Cushioning to football in 2003, with the advent of the DNA Pro. Six years later, now in its third generation, TPU Cushioning remains the best performing padding system in football today. In game-like conditions. It’s proven superior to traditional foam padding in game-like conditions: better impact absorption, better heat management and better hygienics. TPU Cushioning won’t take a compression set, won’t break down (even after thousands of impacts) andis resistant to mold, mildew, fungus and bacteria while providing a barrier against MRSA and staph concerns.
Better Impact Absorption
In game-like conditions, when the temperature inside your helmet can rise in excess of 115°, the performance of TPU Cushioning remains consistent. Traditional foam padding, on the other hand, performs worse. And adaptive, air-filled pockets? Not even in the same ball park.
Better Heat Management
Keeping cool and fresh on the field is at the top of every player’s list. The open-air sides of TPU Cushioning, along with the channels weaving in and out throughout the cushion, do a great job of circulating air throughout the interior of the helmet. Traditional foam padding, however, is like wrapping a blanket of insulation around your head. Restrictive black bonnets don’t do very much for keeping you cool either.
TPU Cushioning is virtually impervious to mold, mildew, fungus and bacteria. Traditional foam padding, on the other hand, can be a breeding ground for all kinds of nasty stuff. No matter how well you maintain helmets with foam padding, they can become infested and need to be replaced. With the TPU Cushioning in your helmet, that’s no longer a concern.
Unlike traditional foam padding, TPU Cushioning is ready to wear (comfortably) right out of the box. There’s no breaking-in period, like you have with foam. TPU Cushioning doesn’t take a compression set like traditional foam padding. Nor does TPU break down like foam – even after thousands of impacts.
AiR Maxx (TPU) Jaw Pad
The same great protection in the rest of your helmet is now available in an all-new jaw pad! The AiR Maxx Jaw Pad, available exclusively from Schutt, is a TPU jaw pad that combines the comfort and fit of a soft, vinyl-covered pad with the better protection of TPU Cushioning.
Moisture Management Pad
Wrapping around the front section of the SUREFIT™ air liner, the moisture management pad wicks sweat away from your forehead, keeping your vision clear. Easy to maintain, just wash it and let air dry.
SUREFIT Air Liner
The two-piece air liner is the secret behind the fit and comfort of our helmets. With two inflation ports, the SUREFIT™ Air Liner gives you a precise custom fit and is made from a soft, but durable anti-microbial material.
Valve Attachment System
This new hook and loop attachment system locks the inflation valves into place. There’s no more struggling to keep the valve aligned to the helmet shell.
Quarter Turn Release
The all-new attachment system for faceguards! The faceguard is locked into place but – if needed – a simple quarter turn releases the faceguard! Swift and easy access in an injury situation.
Energy Wedge Faceguard
Truly unique to the game of football, the Energy Wedge Faceguard acts as a shock absorber for the Youth ION 4D™, absorbing up to 15% more impact from direct frontal impacts than traditional faceguards. The Energy Wedge faceguard is stronger than traditional faceguards and gives you a wide, unobstructed view of the entire field.
Chin Strap Attachment
Because the Energy Wedge faceguard is stronger than traditional faceguards, the chin strap can be attached “through the faceguard.” Other attachment methods, such as the 4-Point High, can still be used as the Youth ION 4D™ is pre-scored for the installation of chin strap snaps.
We’ve changed the nose bumper/faceguard retainer on the Youth ION 4D™ so that it now more closely resembles and performs like traditional nose bumpers.
