About Barkley

Saquon Barkley is a running back for the New York Giants. He was first drafted by the Giants in 2018 and has stuck with the team for his full career so far. Barkley started his college career with the Penn State Nittany Lions in 2015. 

The gear. The details. 

Saquon Barkley was seen wearing a Riddell SpeedFlex Helmet this season. It’s a classic, Giants blue with a painted, red stripe. Barkley’s number 26 is seen on the front and back of the helmet, along with a white Warning Label and US flag decal.

The front of his SpeedFlex has a Giants 3D Bumper, the back bumper is solid white. He has a light grey SF-2BD-SW Facemask

The NFL made a deal with Oakley so that all teams sport Oakley visors and clips. Barkley appears to be wearing a PRIZM Clear Pro Visor with visor clips that match the grey mask.

Going along with his look is a white unbranded SportStar Victory T-Rex Hurricane Chinstrap, coordinating back to the white details in the Giants logo. I think the helmet would really be complete with white Colored Facemask Clips, but Barkley is wearing clear.


About Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins is a wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals. He was originally drafted by the Houston Texans in 2013. He played for the Clemson Tigers, starting in 2010. 

The gear. The details. 

This year, DeAndre Hopkins has been wearing a Riddell SpeedFlex Helmet. This helmet is clean in white, all the way down to the bladder valve screws. The CU-SF-2BD-SW-HP Facemask is gray, as traditionally seen on most helmet designs. 

Hopkins is minimal with helmet accessories. He hasn’t been seen wearing a visor so far. His chinstrap is an unbranded, white Riddell SpeedFlex Hard Cup Cam Loc ChinstrapThe Warning Label on the back is black, right beside his number 10 in red.
