Helmet Warning

No helmet can guarantee prevention of serious head or any neck injuries, which may occur as a result of playing football, including brain injury from a concussion. This helmet is not intended to offer any protection from neck injury. To reduce the risk of head or any neck injury, do not use your head to make contact with an opposing player. Keep your head in an upright position and do not use this helmet to butt, ram or spear any player. Such use is in violation of football rules and can result in severe head and neck injuries, including but not limited to concussions, paralysis or death, as well as injury to an opponent.

You should immediately report any of the following symptoms to your trainer, doctor, coach and parents: “seeing stars,” disorientation, confusion, wooziness, dizziness, loss of balance, loss of memory, headache, neck or spine pain, nausea, vomiting, or any other symptom you believe may be the result of an impact to the head. If you experience any of the above symptoms, discontinue all football activities until you have received written medical clearance and all symptoms have resolved for an extended period of time.

Ignoring this warning may lead to additional and more serious injury, including potentially fatal second impact syndrome. Removal of any warning label on this helmet will void, as to that helmet, the helmet warranty and any indemnification or contribution right that may exist.

Xenith disclaims any responsibility or liability resulting from unauthorized alteration of the shock absorber configuration. Dealer may only replace worn or damaged jaw and crown shock absorbers on football helmets with identical Xenith replacement parts.
