Xenith Shadow XR Redefines Energy Control

Xenith Shadow XR Feels Lighter

Xenith Shadow XRs low profile and balanced feel give you maximum on-field performance allowing for controlled movement and greater agility.

Our Most Comfortable, Secure Fit

RHEON™ cells and integrated RHEON™ jaw pads allow for a uniform, even fit for optimal comfort on the head with no hot spots.

Superior Materials

Our proprietary polymer shell, which is 10% lighter than traditional shell materials, paired with our titanium facemask feel balanced on your head.


Large vents at front and rear of shell along with purposeful RHEON™ shock structure allows cool air to flow over the head and hot air to escape.

Xenith Shadow XR's Energy Control Layer

Made of RHEON™ cells which use re-entrant geometry and proprietary molecular structure to provide the most intelligent energy control solution in the game.
