What you need to know

  • Riddell and Microsoft worked together to create a commemorative helmet inspired by Master Chief.
  • The helmet features the iconic green Mjolnir armor color of Master Chief and a gold visor.
  • A sweepstakes will give away five of the helmets, and people can purchase them directly for $1,000.

To celebrate the launch of Halo Infinite, Riddell partnered with Microsoft to make a football helmet inspired by Master Chief. The Riddell SpeedFlex features the green Mjolnir armor color of Master Chief, a golden visor, and several accessories and clips to make it appear similar to the helmet of the video game icon.

The side of the helmet features Master Chief's number, 117. There's also a Halo 20-year anniversary decal on the helmet. The SF-2EG-TX upgraded facemask helps complete the look of the commemorative helmet, along with an included convert-to-black kit that lets you swap face mask clips and front and back bumpers to black. An Oakley Pro Shield Prizm 24k Iridium visor and a black hard cup chin strap come with the helmet as well.

While Riddell helmets, including the SpeedFlex, earn high safety ratings by the NFL and Virginia Tech, the commemorative Master Chief-inspired helmet is for display use only.

Five of the helmets are available for winners of a contest that runs through 8 PM PT on December 30, 2021. A select quantity of helmets is available for purchase for $1,000.
