cool helmet

FITS GREAT

anonymous · August 24th, 2021

I bought this helmet for my son and it fit perfect. He loves it especially with all the padding inside. All the other helmets he tried on didn’t fit too good

FITS GREAT AND WORKS AWESOME

anonymous · August 13th, 2021

I got this helmet last year and it was so easy to find my teams colors and I didn’t even feel like I was wearing anything. But when I got hit I was expecting it to hurt but I didn’t feel a thing

HELMET THAT SAVED THE SEASON

anonymous · August 10th, 2021

Ordered this helmet for my nephew who is in GA! With the pandemic this year he had to get his own helmet in order to play. Having just moved there from Texas finding one was hard. Ordered a white helmet to match the teams color. Also had to order a facemask to match. Came quick and was an absolute perfect fit. He said the fit was better than the temp Riddell helmet his coach was letting him use. Got this as it rates high on the VT helmet list. Nephew it barely feels like he is wearing anything on his head. Will definitely look to Xenith again if he or any other player I know needs a helmet.

BEST HELMETS!

anonymous · July 20th, 2021

I am a coach and team commissioner for a youth football organization and I have to say the Xenith X2E is the best!! One of the safest if not the safest helmets on the market today! Our organization fields 3 teams and the Xenith X2E is what we have used for several years now……very safe helmets and very satisfied with the results!

GREAT HELMET

GREAT!

I have this as my base helmet and have been looking to purchase this one for my self for a while. I play as a outside linebacker/corner on defense and a tight end on offence. It has great FOV and super light so i can turn my head and cut on a dime.

GREAT

this helmet is comfortable and not to heavy when I'm playing from Europe I would this a solid 5

ONLY HELMET MY SON WILL WEAR!

anonymous · March 17th, 2021

My son has tried several helmets over his youth playing career as a quarterback and continues to choose Xenith over all other helmets. He claims it is the most comfortable, secure, and he feels far less head trauma when wearing one

AMAZING HELMET

anonymous · February 20th, 2021

My 9 year old son has been playing since he was 5, and over that time we have tried other helmets either issued by his league, or purchased by us. He has never been able to wear the "r" brand, and when he was little xenith didn't fit, so we purchased another brand. When he got older, he tried on a x2e+ again at a local store and LOVED it, so we ended up ordering one to get the color and options he needed. Now he will not wear another brand, and considering xenith is always at or near the top of the VT ratings, I don't know if I would let him. His comfort is what matters to him, his safety is what matters to us. These helmets are a must have!

THE BEST HELMET

anonymous · December 22nd, 2020

Both of my boys have played tackle football and they love Xenith. Not only does my oldest notice the protection when making contact but the fit is more comfortable and as an added bonus he loves they way the helmet looks! We will be Xenith lifers! Cheers to decades of Xenith gear!

EXCELLENT

AWESOME PRODUCT AND SERVICE

anonymous · November 13th, 2020

Just bought the Youth X2E+ helmet for my 6 year old son. Ordering was such a breeze. Easy to fully customize the helmet on the website. Once ordered, service was very fast and the helmet shipped the very day I ordered it! My son used it for the first time tonight at practice and he loved it. He said it was very light and way more comfortable than his league issued helmet. I am super impressed with the quality. Without a doubt, I will be a repeat customer!

IM SUPRISED THAT NOT EVERYONE HAS THIS HELMET

anonymous · November 5th, 2020

Im suprised that not everyone has this helmet its the best helmet you could possibly get 100%

KILLED IT

anonymous · September 12th, 2020

Great helmet, have a nice classic and classy look to my lil bro, he's been using it for the last 3 years even when he and one of his teammates hit themselves in practice the other boy had a concussion and my brother don't so pretty happy with it, although this year he told me that he wanted an F7 for upgraded fit, safety and looks the moment he saw and read about the SXR he went nuts so we will stick to xenith after all the hype that all those other brands had recently... just for a goodbye Thanks for all the moments and your service we will always love you with all our hearts to our dear X2E+

GREAT YOUTH HELMET!

anonymous · August 28th, 2020

My 11 year old has been playing tackle football for 3 years now. The bigger he has gotten & the more competitive the leagues are, we decided the helmet he received from the team wasn’t going to work this year & with how hard he plays & the positions he’s in. We looked at Xenith because we liked his helmet he received but needed a newer nicer one, we needed to upgrade. I do say when we received it my 11 year old was so excited to wear it for his game! I love the customization process from choosing the colors he wanted, picking the face mask & the color chin guard he wanted. The helmet is well made & looked great. Overall working with Xenith from the beginning process to calling & making sure it’s certified & shipping I was very impressed with everything!

GREAT HELMET

anonymous · October 29th, 2019

We were given helmets through our league but they were used and not quit up to my expectations, so we decided to get our own. My son loves his and says it’s very comfortable compared to the other (the chin strap especially)

GREAT HELMET!

anonymous · October 28th, 2019

My son has played competitive tackle football since the age of 5. The organizations we played for provided helmets, but we found Xenith fairly early on, and bought him one every few years as he grew. We feel that the Xenith is a safer helmet, by design. The design, also, gives youth players a little more "growing room" in each size, so you don't have to replace the helmet as often. My son is now age 13 and in middle school. In his first year playing for the school team, the coach told us that we could not provide our own equipment, and my son wore the school's helmet. For the first time, he took a hit that "rang his bell", and he had to set-out for a few plays, but had no other incidents that season. During the off-season, COMPLETELY UNRELATED TO FOOTBALL, my son collided with another boy while playing, and suffered a serious concussion and skull fracture. He had to have the fracture repaired with titanium mesh, and missed a month of school. Once healed, his doctors agreed that there was no issue with him continuing to play football, as he was now "titanium reinforced", though future concussions would limit his football career. There was NO WAY I was going to let him play again, unless the school agreed to allow us to put him in a Xenith helmet. As our son is the quarterback, middle linebacker, and field-goal kicker, the coaches agreed. When my son advances to play for the high school next year (and helmets go from white to black), Xenith will even paint his helmet for next to nothing, as part of their reconditioning. I was leery of him playing in a different helmet, but now I just put my foot down and say, "He ain't playing in anything but a Xenith!"

YOUTH HELMENT

anonymous · October 28th, 2019

Great, my son wore it all season and loved it. fit great.

FANTASTIC HELMET

anonymous · October 28th, 2019

I purchased this for my son who has a narrow jaw line with a larger crown. League helmets were always looser in the jaw than I would like so I did my research and liked how the Xenith chin strap was part of the jaw pads. The design resulted in a tighter fit on my son's head. My son also loves this helmet, he says it's the more comfortable helmet he's worn. The only criticism I have of the helmet is the overall weight of it. It's heavier than its competitors. This doesn't bother my son, just an observation I've made.

AWESOME SERVICE

anonymous · October 28th, 2019

My order was handled and shipped very efficiently and quickly. Quality is superior will be continuing to purchase Xenith product for my program.

COMFORT AND PROTECTION

anonymous · October 27th, 2019

I purchased this for my son based on other reviews and research. He has been playing youth football since the age of 4, and this is by far the most comfortable helmet that he has ever worn. There aren't any pressure marks on his head after practice, or a game. He hasn't complained about the weight, and really likes the fact that the system fits to him, and not the other way around.

GREAT HELMET

Excellent product. Very happy with the entire process.

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!!!

X2E+ YOUTH

anonymous · October 26th, 2019

My son loves this helmet! He says it is very comfortable and based on the reviews, I like the safety of it. The only issue we've had is the chin strap snaps. I have had to replace 2 of them, which fell out and a couple of the other ones are already rusting. We've only had the helmet since August and it is kept in his football bag when not in use.

GREAT PR9

anonymous · October 26th, 2019

Overall great helmet. Was comfortable for my son. Easy to take off and put on. Only reason for not giving five stars is that helmet seemed a little heavy.

HELMET FOR MY BOYS

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

My boys play For their high school JV team and unfortunately the equipment they were given was really old. I wanted them to be as protected as you can be playing football and after all my research this was the beat helmet I found. I had no idea Xenith even made helmets because as a kid all we had was Ridelle. Ordering it was simple and it showed up exactly as advertised. Took a couple weeks for them to get used to the fit but once they did they loved it. Good looking helmet too so all their friends were showing them love.

THE ONLY HELMET WE USE.

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

My son used to complain about headaches after practice and games messing with the hand me downs through the league. He hasn't had a headache from football in 4 years!

ALL WE USE

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

Have 3 of these for my kids. They are wonderful.

GREAT PROTECTION AND NOT OVERLY EXPENSIVE

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

I feel like my son is safe with this helmet on. It has impact ratings that rival $1000 helmets.

GREAT HELMET

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

So far throughout my season I have had some head on colisions and fumble recoveries I've had to go for and the helmet really does well with those contacts! I currently play slot receiver, the helmet's weight is not an issue what so ever with every other receiver complaining about theirs I'm over here chillin. I have noticed that the helmet does get scratched up really easily. Even with that minor detail it is an excellent helmet and a few of my teammates have intrest in buying them.

X2E YOUTH HELMET

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

I'm very pleased with the safety of this helmet. My only complaint is that the strap continues to come lose when hit.

BEST HELMET ON THE MARKET!

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

I believe this helmet has held up great, my son is a big kid at linebacker and this helmet has absorbed alot without failing. As a Coach I reccomend this helmet highly.

GREAT HELMET

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

Bought this for my son for 7th grade football. He complained about the school supplied helmet hurting his head. Looked up the Virginia tech ratings and bought him a Xenith. He love it. No more hurting his head and never complained again. I will be buying another helmet next year for 8th as he will grow.

GREAT HELMET

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

My son has used this helmet for his current season and he loves it. He loves the facemask and how comfortable it is for him..the chinstrap stays in place pretty well and its doesn't seem to get loose during the season like a lot of other types. His only complaint is that he says the helmet looks bigger than other brands so it makes his head look bigger lol.

BEST MONEY SPENT

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

My son was hit hard last season and received a concussion. For this reason i decided to do some research and go with a better helmet than issued. As they get older the hits get harder and it has saved him. He's had several hard hits as a receiver and not a concussion with this helmet. Thanks Xenith

YOUTH

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

This is the second xenith that my son has owned He absolutely loves the helmet and I’m definitely going to buy more of them has he gets older

AWESOME FOOTBALL HELMET!!!

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

Helmet is really great! My 4 grade son loves it. Comfortable from day 1 and has held up very good. We are going into game 16 this weekend and it has protected his head all year. Thank you Xenith!!! Two more wins to win the Super Bowl!

GREAT HELMET

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

I purchased this helmet for my son who plays for his middle school team. The helmet he was issued was old and certified. BUT I did not like the fit nor did my son as well. I did my homework and looked review the West Virginia study on youth football helmets and I was happy with the study. I also asked friends who have purchase the same helmet and they were happy with their purchase. My son loves the helmet and how light it is. We will be sticking with Xenith brand to protect my boys for football. Thank you Paul

BEST HELMET FOR PRICE

anonymous · October 25th, 2019

Fantastic helmet. Best for youth football.

EASIEST HELMET TO FIT

anonymous · July 23rd, 2019

As a coach, I've fit 100's of youth football players over the years and no helmet fits players as consistently as this one does. The custom fit chin strap system makes it so easy and the kids love how comfortable these are. This is the only helmet my son will wear. He prefers the way X2E+ fits over the (more expensive) Epic. Jaw pads adjust out if needed.

X2E+ HELMET FITS GREAT!

anonymous · July 18th, 2019

My son has been playing football for a few years now and loves his X2E. It makes such a difference in a kids performance when what they wear on the field is comfortable. I always heard Xenith was the best and it was confirmed with this purchase. I only wish I had paid a little more and upgraded to the 3DX chin cup, but I can order that anytime. Great helmet!

UNBOXING

anonymous · October 6th, 2016

Just received my sons new X2E helmet. From the moment we put it on his head he referenced the comfort of his new lid. My son has dreads and the fit of the X2E allows his hair to lay comfortably and out of his face. Once he wears the helmet on the field I will let you know how it wore in game situations

A MUST-HAVE

anonymous · January 24th, 2016

This is a great piece of equipment to protect what is most important

BEST YOUTH FOOTBALL HELMET!

anonymous · January 24th, 2016

Been using this product and is highly recommended for your youth athlete. My son always tell me how he feels comfortable with this helmet compared to past helmets. Will never switch to a different one.

BEST ON THE MARKET!

anonymous · January 24th, 2016

This is by far the best product on the market. The fully integrated, pully type system adapts to every shape of head and facial structure of a kid. The separation of the head from the shell allows for air flow in the the head area, plus a disbursement of energy upon impact. My son has rarely had to even readjust his helmet, even after major impacts. As a former pro athlete, I can honestly say that this is by far the most innovative & progressive helmet design out there.

THIS HELMET IS THE TRUTH!!!

anonymous · January 24th, 2016

My son loves his helmet. He ran the ball 114 times and scored 32 times this season. Those hard shots don't seem so hard anymore thanks to you guys helmet and shoulder pads. Thanks! I hope all of our kids be able to play in these

GREAT HIGH SCHOOL HELMET

anonymous · January 24th, 2016

I have 2 sons who played varsity football in the Xenith football helmet. My oldest son went on and used it in college. Great design + protection!

GREAT PRODUCT

anonymous · January 24th, 2016

My boy plays RB/LB. He doesn't lead with his head but hits do happen. Since getting this helmet he has not asked to come out of a game. His comments are that this helmet feels "different" when there's a hit. As a parent, I'm very happy with it. I ordered the shoulder pads with back plate for next season. Looking forward to seeing him play.

BEST HELMET IN THE GAME

anonymous · December 21st, 2015

I can go on & on about this helmet but I'm gonna keep it short and sweet. Best helmet in my football career thus far. I've been playing since kindergarten and I just finished up my sr year. I brought it because I've had concussions in the past. No head injuries this year! Apart of it is due to Xenith. My helmet never flew off w/ a hit, as oppose to my teammates with their pretty revos. I recommend this every football player. Str8 up! Team xenith

BEST HELMET EVER

anonymous · November 21st, 2015

It was so comfortable on the field, but at the same time protective and stylish. Couldn'the help but write a review to encourage others to not miss out on such a quality piece of equipment.

IF YOU CARE ABOUT SAFETY, THEN BUY XENITH HELMETS, THE BEST

COOLEST AND SAFEST

anonymous · January 15th, 2012

I am a high school football player and I must say that this helmet is the best helmet I've worn in all my years of football and I've played for 11 years it's shock absorbent pads cuts the chances of having a concussion and honestly maybe it's me but it feels lighter than a normal helmet I hope to continue to wear this helmet as I go to college and so on

BENEFITS

Iconic Design. Cutting-Edge Protection.

The Xenith X2E+ delivers the comfort and protection player's need to perform their best. Plus, Xenith's single-stage shock liner conforms to the head as the integrated chinstrap is engaged for a locked-in, custom fit. This revolutionary helmet technology also separates the head from the shell to redirect and reduce linear & rotational forces.

Internal shock matrix of X2E+ Helmet.

BENEFITS

Single-Stage Shocks

Xenith’s foundational technology; these 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, 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.
