The warranty on helmet shells is five (5) years for polycarbonate varsity helmets and three (3) years for ABS youth helmets, provided there has been normal use and proper maintenance. It is recommended that your helmet be reconditioned every year by a Riddell Factory Authorized Reconditioner. Proper maintenance requires reconditioning of your helmet at least every two (2) years by a NOCSAE Licensed Reconditioner using only new factory replacement liners in the reconditioning process. Evidence of any of the following conditions will operate to void this warranty: 1) Failure to have the helmet reconditioned at least every two (2) years by a NOCSAE Licensed Reconditioner. 2) Installation of used parts instead of new parts whenever a liner replacement is necessary. 3) Where shells have been damaged by a chemical reaction from the use of incompatible materials such as: a. Attachment of a guard, face mask or component of another manufacturer or mismatched material. b. Use of cleaners, waxes or paints of another manufacturer or failure to follow recommended cleaning and painting instructions. 4) Excessive drilling of holes or drilling of any new holes less than ½” from each other or the edge of the shell. 5) Abusive treatments or any use other than the playing of American football. 6) Removal of, or obliteration of, the Warranty label, date code or warning labels. Varsity and youth football helmet component parts are warranted to be free of defects in material and workmanship for a period of one (1) year provided there has been normal use and proper maintenance. This warranty is in lieu of all other warranties, expressed or implied, whether Statutory or otherwise, including any implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for any particular purpose. Manufacturer shall not be liable for any consequential damages resulting from the use of its products. Products covered by these warranties should be returned to the manufacturer, along with evidence of the date of purchase.
