Unfortunately, no. Upgrading components would create a new helmet model, which would not be NOCSAE certified and therefore not approved for play.
The Xenith Shadow XR differs from the standard Xenith Shadow in three distinct ways:1. Xenith Shadow XR utilizes RHEON™ shocks for its energy control layer, while the Xenith Shadow utilizes a combination of single and multi-stage shocks.2. Xenith Shadow XR adds two outer RHEON™ jaw shocks which provide additional energy management and an even, uniform fit.3. Xenith Shadow XR has a more traditional fit than the Xenith Shadow. Xenith Shadow features a wider range of fit adjustment than Xenith Shadow XR. For example, if a player feels too tight in a Medium Xenith Shadow XR, a Medium Xenith Shadow may still be the right choice. For proper fitting of any helmet please refer to the appropriate size and fit guide.For additional information on each helmet please refer to their respective product pages:
Xenith’s Youth Shadow XR features RHEON™ shocks engineered for Youth athletes, which allows for a more compact profile.
