Xenith Shadow XR Youth Feels Lighter
Xenith Shadow XR Youth's optimized RHEON™ shocks allow a compact profile and better weight distribution for youth athletes to play faster and with more control.
Data Driven Youth Fit
Thousands of data points were analyzed to develop an improved youth fit.
Superior Shell Material
Our proprietary polymer shell is 10% lighter and protects better than traditional shell materials.
All Xenith Youth helmets use the same Adaptive Fit Technology that is found across our suite of helmets from the highest level of play, in all 32 NFL locker rooms, to youth.
Elevated Comfort for Youth Athletes
RHEON™ cells and integrated RHEON™ jaw shocks are additions to the adaptive fit system that provide optimal comfort on the head with a uniform, even fit and no hot spots.
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
We designed and engineered Xenith Shadow XR Youth with RHEON™ cells for youth football to be the most intelligent Energy Control solution in the game.
RHEON™ cells SHEAR to control rotational impact energy, reducing the movement of the head.
RHEON™ cells COMPRESS to absorb linear impact. The cell design, with re-entrant geometry, concentrates more material at the impact site to slow down the hit.
Designed to Protect
The castle shape of the RHEON™ cell amplifies the innovative energy control properties of RHEON™ material. The cells cushion slow-speed impacts, but intelligently strengthen for high-speed impacts.
*Production run RHEON™ shocks will be grey.
