Why Use A Xenith Youth Football Helmet

Protection and fit are two of the most important factors in a youth football helmet. Xenith’s innovative Xenith Adaptive Head Protection® system not only provides the best protection, but has introduced the football industry to an entirely new and innovative way of fitting football helmets.

  • Fit Seeker: The X2’s Fit Seeker System adapts to the head for outstanding fit and comfort with no pumps needed. There are many different types of hits experienced in a game including rotational acceleration; Xenith’s Fit Seeker is designed to keep the helmet secure during all impacts.

  • How Youth Football Helmets Have Evolved Over Time

    Football players generally wear Youth Football Helmets, before they enter high school; this includes players as early as age 5 up through 14 when they switch to adult football helmets. Pop Warner football began in 1929 and has grown every year since its inception. The organized football program began to keep kids out of trouble and today there are still leagues being created for the same reasons. The National Operating Committee on Standards Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) approves helmets to be worn on any football field. Today the exterior material of football helmets is generally made of a hard plastic called polycarbonate; however often youth helmets are made of ABS Plastic, which can be better suited for the impacts experienced on a youth football field. The interior components of football helmets are generally made of dense foam padding; however, they significantly differ from manufacturer to manufacturer. Xenith’s innovative Xenith Adaptive Head Protection was introduced in 2009 and since then has brought a new dimension of fit, design, comfort and safety. The shock absorbers inside are made of Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), which is a durable, antimicrobial material which unlike foam doesn’t degrade significantly overtime. It is significantly better than other helmet manufacturers given its fit, safety, maintenance and cost. The Xenith model is the only youth helmet with a fit system. Children’s heads are generally shaped differently than adults and in a helmet with no fit system this creates a problem. The Xenith helmet forms to the shape of the players head allowing for an optimal fit especially for youth football players. Today there are over 100,000 football players in the United States wearing Xenith football helmets including the youth level.

  • Why Use A Youth Football Helmet

    Youth football helmets are required for youth football for safety and injury prevention. Concussion awareness has grown in football at all levels; however particularly at the youth level. Recently studies have shown that younger players are at a greater risk of brain injury, as their brains are not yet fully developed. Some youth leagues have begun modifying practices so youth football players are not hitting as frequently, lessening the likelihood of injury. These recent findings make your choice more important than ever.

    Xenith Youth Football Helmet Accessories

    Youth Football helmet accessories include seven different football facemask styles for youth and adult in both carbon steel and titanium. The Xenith eye shield fits every size Xenith helmet except the youth small; however, eye shields are often not allowed in some youth football leagues without a Doctor’s note.
