Xenith Football Helmet Reconditioning

When the season comes to an end, football helmet reconditioning is key to ensure your athlete's helmet is as safe as the day you purchased it.

So, where should you start?

First, you can take comfort in knowing Xenith is a member of the National Athletic Equipment Reconditioning Association (NAERA) and licensed by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE). In other words, every helmet we receive is extensively tested so your athlete can feel safe and confident on the field.

Look for the NOCSAE recertification label on the backside of your helmet that includes the name of the recertifying firm (Xenith) and the year of recertification.NOCSAE recertification label found on each helmet reconditioned by Xenith.We believe helmet reconditioning is critical to an athlete’s safety and performance, and essential for maintaining the investment you've made in your football equipment.

    Our Reconditioning Process:

    Prepaid Packaging

    - We send you a prepaid shipping label and packaging to get your helmets to our facility.

    Test Your Helmets

    - We test helmets from every order to ensure they meet all NOCSAE and Xenith standards.

    Quality Check

    - We disassemble every helmet, examine every piece and replace anything substandard at no additional cost. (Internal Shock Matrix, Facemasks and Helmet Shells are replaced at no additional cost during five year helmet warranty.)


    - We scrub your helmet by hand in order to return it to clean, hygienic, like-new condition.

    Shell Maintenance

    - We sand and buff injected shells, while painted shells are sanded and repainted for an additional fee.

    Retest & Return

    - We retest the helmet's performance and ship them back to you good-as-new.

    There's no corner cutting involved here. Your safety is our number one priority!
