Thought the BGPreps crowd would like this.... here is the new Xenith Shadow helmet for 2019. I've been a fan of Xenith from the beginning. The helmet works with shock absorbers instead of padding. Also, the shock absorbers are in a bonnet that is pulled around your head when you fasten the chinstrap, separating your head from the helmet shell.

I like Xenith helmets, but in my experience, kids either love them, or absolutely hate them. There never seems to be an in between. Looking at the price though, $479 is going to put them out of reach for many programs.

For what it’s worth, they have the 5 Star rating from Va. Tech AND our kids are really excited about them!

If they’re protecting those young’s brains better, can’t hate em.

That face mask looks dangerous. Fingers could easily get caught between the bars causing damage to the fingers. Looks like they are trying too hard to be different.

 

I’m sure there are other facemask options available, most of which will be more traditional looking.

I think it’s great that a district is willing to spend money on helmets like this. There are some districts that don’t pay for reconditioning.

 

Good point.

 

1- As a Xenith Elite football program, we get one helmet free for everyone we purchase. We also do our reconditioning through Xenith. Their work was outstanding and I was very pleased with the returned helmets.

 

2- I agree we are fortunate to have the support we have. Including next season, for 5 years in a row, every regular season home game has a sponsor. That funding has made a big impact on our program and kids. We still have much to do, but we are making progress and I am thankful for the support we have in Harrodsburg/Mercer County.

Point one is pretty big factor. You’re getting a 400-500.00 helmet for 200-250.00 which is one heck of a deal. Is there a certain amount you had to buy or buy on a seasonal basis?

 

The look might not be for everyone but it’s an easy sell to the parents. Partnering with a program be it Xenith, Adidas, Nike or whoever tends to help sell your program too. The programs that have the ability to do things like this show the how a relationship between strong athletic support and academics can work.

The facemask was the only part I didn’t like.
