Outfitted in a sleek, modern design that delivers superior comfort and that “look-good, feel-good, play-good” attitude all season long. The Xenith Shadow Youth comes packed with revolutionary helmet technology for next level performance and durability.

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.

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, providing 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.
