Yes it is, it's the best helmet I've ever worn. I used to get headaches all the time and now I never get them. You don't feel the hits as much in the Xenith.
The Xenith X2. It offers the same type of protection as the Xenith X1, yet is a few bucks less. The X2 should sell for around $200.00, while the X1 is $300.00
Xenith by far! The X1 helmet absorbs the hit 43% more than Schutt, you can barely feel the hit! Plus, all the other equipment Xenith makes is better too!
no it wont because it is to big to fit on a youth helmet
a sport shop maybe
The Xenith is the better helmet. The Xenith helmets are the only helmets on the market specifically designed to help reduce the risk of concussion using adaptive technology. Xenith helmets adapt to each impact using shock absorbers instead of the hard dense foam found in the Revo speed. They also fit better than other helmets. All other helmets on the market use air bladders that need to be filled to customize the fit of the helmet. In most cases these air bladders are not checked and refilled by players often enough to maintain a perfect fit. The Xenith helmet uses the "fit seeker" system to adjust to your head properly every time you put the helmet on. Since there are no air bladders, there's nothing for the player to do to ensure a proper fit but putting the helmet on! Check it out for yourself from the link given below.
Yes you can. I bought a Oakley visor for my X1 and had some issues getting it on when following the directions. You have to remove the facemask from the helmet and attach the visor to the facemask then place it on the helmet. The middle tab on the visor is designed to be under the front "bumper" pad but because the Xenith helmet's "bumper" pad is connected to the entire shock bonnet assembly the visor's tab has to be exposed.
In today's world of football no it is not a good football helmet. Your better off with a concussion Prevention helmet like a xenith or DNA or riddell.
there is only 4 i can find, so no u cant put any face mask on thm.
I would go with the Riddell Revolution Speed Helmet. I have it and I love it. It has an aggressive shell design while the Xenith X1 is more laid back. But position does matter too, if you are a skilled player I would go Speed, but O-Lineman should get Xenith X1. I am a Defensive End and O-Line (should not be, but I am the strongest on the team so..)
My son plays high school football and his team went to the Xenith helmet this season. I think they may have not focused enough on the sheel construction of the helmet. He has told me that a number of the helments have had the chin strap clips completely rip out of the helment. To me the shell seems flimsy. the interior padding is very interesting and is supposed to prevent concussions. So far I only know of one concussion on his team during 2 a day camp.
The Riddell Revolution for Kids. Just go to Google, type in revolution football helmets, and click on footballamerica.com. Actually it is the Youth Schutt ION 4D. Go to schuttsports.com and click on football helmets then click on the !YOUTH! Schutt ION 4D and that can give you locations by your house where they sell it. Or you can go to Google and type in schutt ion 4d football helmets and click on football America or team express. Actually the safest helmet is the Xenith X1. www.xenith.com . It's a young company but their technology is proven to reduce concussions more so than the Schutt and Riddell counterparts. Because it's an advanced product, it's pricey. Your kid's brain health is priceless.
Easy answer: POC Skull Comp. As I ski racer, I know what kind of requirements needed to protect my noggin. Previously had Uvex, which sucked. Got a concussion with it, shocks broke in it. I have to say Leedom is not very into what the top racers are wearing for helmets. Don't go with leedom. Boeri competition is a good helmet as well. Shred is probably the number 2 best helmet with Briko and Boeri tailing behind it. POC is completely on top with safety.
