XENITH SHADOW

I recently purchased the xenith shadow. This is the most comfortable helmet, I’ve ever worn.

CHRISTMAS PRESENT

anonymous · December 8th, 2019

My overall experience was exceptional. I have had other Xenith equipment before. My son wore a Xenith helmet for 4th,5th & 6th grade years of Tackle Football. He just finished his Freshman season of Football. Talking with our Athletic Trainer we discussed Xenith Equipment. Although our High School has incredible equipment. We both agreed the Xenith Helmet was better than our current Helmets. I guess it is a piece of mind thing. Football is a punishing game. It only takes one hit to end a career. I have no problem putting the best equipment on my kid. If it gives just the slightest advantage in Safety. It is money well spent!!

Typical great experience for this purchase.

MY SON'S HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL HELMET

anonymous · October 24th, 2019

My son's high school-issued helmet was a good product and performed well, but through the summer and in to the beginning of practice he was having trouble with comfort. Then in week 1, while playing QB, he took a helmet-to-helmet hit from a DE. The hit he took was exacerbated by lack of comfort to begin with so we started shopping for new helmet. I was first a little apprehensive about the price, but my wife said "we have paid more for a baseball bat" which really put the safety and comfort aspect into perspective. The only thing I would change is not waiting until his senior year to make the purchase. Number one it's comfortable with great safety technology. Number two it looks great.

HELMET SAVES SON‘S BEST FRIEND FROM CONCUSSION

anonymous · October 18th, 2019

We purchased an extra helmet for my son and his best friend. After watching an extremely aggressive team triple down on my son‘s best friend who was a linebacker the impact was absolutely Frightening to watch. The ambulance came and picked up my son‘s best friend and took him into the hospital because he did actually pass out. The doctor had advised all of us that if it was not for the zenith helmet he would’ve possibly died from such a fierce impact! Zenith our hats are off to you and your team for saving our boys on a play by play scenario. Thank y’all so much!!!

BEST HELMET EVER!!!

anonymous · October 18th, 2019

Son says it's the most comfortable and best helmet he's ever worn!! Well worth the investment!!

CHIN STRAP

anonymous · October 18th, 2019

Chin Strap broke in the middle of the 4th game of the season. It is rigged up to work for now. Luckily my son has a bye week. I will have to order another chin strap. Other than that the helmet works great according to my son. Xenith helmets all the way the best helmet made.

XENITH SHADOW

anonymous · October 18th, 2019

My helmet is awesome, i felt it super confortable and protects really good from hard impacta, the only thing i found is that the chin strap buckle get off or unbuckles really easy and is annoying to put them in place again and i lossen in game but overall in protection and comfort is a 100%

AMAZING HELMET

Amazing helmet.

COMFORT

anonymous · October 18th, 2019

Most comfortable helmet my son has ever had.

BEST HELMET EVER!!! (SPONSORED)

anonymous · September 5th, 2019

This is the best helmet I've ever worn! I used to wear an old one until I was fined $40,000 and got suspended but this helmet has changed my life for the better! I've grown 3 inches and can feel the CTE(Chronic traumatic encephalopathy) going away. This helmet moisturizes the hair and my skin stays silky smooth thanks to Aveeno™. I've gotten many compliments because of this (Not from my organization). Make sure to subscribe to Xenith™ and my Youtube, Snapchat,Twitter,Instagram, and Facebook, to keep up to date with me and my helmet. Best decision I've made in my career!

MOST COMFORTABLE HELMET IVE EVER PURCHASED

anonymous · July 18th, 2019

The comfort of this helmet blows me away. When you get it on, it feels amazing and then the element of the comfort is enhanced when you cinch down the straps and feel the jaw pads and fit lock conform to your head. I don't feel any gaps and this helmet requires no air!! No other helmet on the market has done that when I have tried them on.

LOOKS AWESOME!

anonymous · July 18th, 2019

I can't believe how good my new Shadow helmet looks! Can't wait for practice to start so I make all the bandwagon speedflex boys jealous....

MISSION

OUTSHINE YOUR RIVALS

The Xenith Shadow helmet incorporates our multi-stage shock liner and an advanced polymer shell for optimal impact performance. These technologies deliver an elite combination of fit and weight. In addition, an enhanced occipital pad cradles the back of the head for a comfortable, secure fit.

BENEFITS

Speed Focused Design

Shadow’s advanced nylon polymer shell is lightweight and developed to work with the helmet’s multi-stage shock liner, which conforms to the head as the integrated chinstrap is engaged. This revolutionary helmet technology separates the head from the shell to redirect and reduce linear & rotational forces.

BENEFITS

Multi-Stage Shocks

As an extension of the Single-Stage shocks, Multi-Stage shocks feature interior and exterior layers that work together to compress and flex in response to linear and rotational forces.


Xenith's Aware-Flow™ shock absorbers dissipate energy by collapsing to vent air for a more complete and gradual compression, compared to a foam material that only partially compresses before packing into a dense solid - creating a more sudden change in velocity than the Aware-Flow™ technology.

BENEFITS

Adaptive Fit System

The exclusive Xenith Adaptive Fit System allows more adjustability to fit different players as the program’s roster evolves, and keeps the helmet locked in place for better balance, reduced head whip, and decreased fatigue. Interchangeable sizing pads provide a custom, fine-tuned fit without the inconvenience or added costs of 3D scanning. We do not use air to fit our helmets.

BENEFITS

Tuned for Impact

Shadow’s advanced nylon polymer shell is roughly 10% lighter and 2-3 times more durable than traditional helmet shells. This responsive outer shell technology works cohesively with the helmet’s multi-stage shock liner to absorb impact forces at the point of contact before reaching the head.

Viginia tech 5 star helmet rating.

BENEFITS

5-Star Rated

The Shadow helmet is 5-Star Virginia Tech Helmet Lab certified and features a unique blend of cutting edge protection and groundbreaking comfort to elevate performance on the field.
