Helmet Gift Giving: To DIY or To Buy?
So, you’re looking to upgrade a helmet. That’s a great idea! At Green Gridiron, we love reimagining helmets so they’re not just straight out of the box. Part of the fun of upgrading a collectible is how you don’t have to follow HS/NCAA rules! Get a tinted or colored visor, change your team’s facemask color to something different, do whatever you want!
Upgrading and customizing your helmet is the best way to make something unique to you. We have tons of high-end accessories for you to choose from to create your own design OR you can find your dream build, made by us! Green Gridiron Edition Helmets are one-off, unique creations made by the biggest helmet nerds out there. Our team loves what they do and they love helmets, so being able to create these special helmets is one of the perks of the job.
Preston is one of many helmet lovers on our staff and has done a great job creating these GG Edition builds for the site! Check out what he's showing off on his Instagram!
Designing Your Own Helmet
If you want to bring your vision to life, we make it easy for you! There are so many options for you to choose from. Every little component of your helmet can be switched out for something new and new things can be added. Add a visor to complete your build, create a coordinated look with a matching chinstrap, or add the cherry on top with matching facemask hardware. There are tons of ways to make give your collectible helmet a signature look.
There are challenges with creating a good-looking helmet. If you’re not an equipment manager or a mega helmet nerd, determining what you need for your build can be baffling. There are ways to work around certain compatible components, but if you don't know what you need for your helmet type or know how to hack it to make it work, you’re much better off.
It can be hard to match colored accessories with the base of your helmet. Schutt and Riddell have their own versions of royal blue, so matching to the Rams’ royal blue lid could be difficult.
Don’t be discouraged though! There’s no right or wrong way to design your custom helmet. At the end of the day, as long as you’re happy with it, then it’s perfect.
If you order your helmet and all of the components with us, you can get free assembly every time! Just make sure that little box is checked and we'll take care of the rest.
Getting a Pre-Built Design
Sometimes, trying to come up with a helmet design is exhausting or overwhelming, especially if the helmet is a gift. You don’t need to have a strong, artistic talent to customize a helmet, but understanding color helps. We’ve gone over our process for helmet building and you can read about it here.
