XENITH LOYAL SINCE 2012

anonymous · April 30th, 2022

My son has worn nothing but XENITH since peewee and the X1. We have upgraded every season, X2, X2E+, epic and he is now in a varsity shadow XR for high school. Always has been a hard hitter and we have never had to have him evaluated for a concussion. Comfort is unmatched according to him.

AMAZING HELMET

I took my first few hits while wearing this helmet and could automatically feel the difference in protection from others I've worn. I feel reinvigorated knowing I'll be able to take and deliver hits while wearing this helmet on the field!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

BEST HELMET EVER!

This helmet is comfy safe and drippy! I've taken so many hard hits in this thing and I feel completely fine! 1000% Recommend.

AWESOME PRODUCTS!

anonymous · September 7th, 2021

We’ve been Xenith helmet loyalists for years now. My son is on his fourth. We bought him one his second year playing tackle football and get him a new one every two years. We just received his Shadow XR. The look is second to none, but more importantly the safety and comfort. We had a scare a few years ago after he was intentionally targeted and decided then that he would never play in any other helmet.

Well made helmet, excellent fit and protection. Superior to other helmets we looked at.

First off Xenith's customer service is amazing! You are in good hands as the willingness to help is always there, fast response, and patience to clarify any inquiry. Regarding the helmet it feels heavy on the hand, but not so once you have it on. It looks really nice both inside and outside. The fit is amazing! I was a bit concerned as I am an M and at the very start, but once I put it on it feels great and has room to adjust. Also the packaging says a lot about the company and how they take care of their products Loved the fact it came with a bag

GREAT HELMET

SHADOW XR

anonymous · February 3rd, 2021

First off, Xenith customer service is top notch! Best thing for any consumer to know that they are in great hands with great people running the show. Secondly, the Shadow XR is a dream! I've never had such an innovative helmet... One that feels heavy when you hold it yet feels so light when it's on your head is amazing. The quality is top notch and I'm looking forward to my next purchases with Xenith.

INCREDIBLE
