Who is Riddell?
Riddell has a long and storied history of innovation when it comes to sports equipment. John Tate Riddell started this company with a simple but brilliant idea to make sporting equipment safer, better, and easier to use for athletes. Many years, and hundreds of great ideas later, we’re still sporting better by making better equipment.
From the first Riddell plastic suspension helmet in 1939 to our newest innovation, the AXIOM helmet, our goal has been to protect our student athletes. We do this by combining our deep experience in athletic protection, helmet technologies, and fitting technology developed for Precision-Fit to deliver the most advanced helmet platform on the market today.
From Boston to San Francisco, over 10,000 athletic teams, professional to youth, depend on Riddell products and our reconditioning service. An original staff of 3 has extended to one of the largest direct sales sporting goods companies in North America. Most questions regarding athletic equipment have been encountered and conquered. The basic philosophy plus conscientious customer service and professional attention to detail in all the areas of business, allows us to serve over 70% of the nation’s athletic needs annually.
