The Florida Gators will receive new helmets to safeguard their domes in 2014. Riddell has developed what they are calling Speedflex trauma-resistant helmets, which aim to protect players from head injuries.

As Only Gators points out, some players are already wearing them in spring practice.
Per Florida, Riddell provided five speed flex helmets for the players to test out. (Sent to a couple programs.) Whether they’re adopted TBD.
