LAX Helmet Manufacturer Says It ‘Raises Bar on Protection’ with New Helmet

Cascade Lacrosse, which bills itself as “the leading helmet manufacturer in lacrosse,” today launched a new premium helmet, the S. Designed and manufactured in the United States, the new S represents “the pinnacle of protection,” among other things.

The S, which sells for $289, incorporates several “new, game-changing helmet technologies, including a new tri-liner integrated with the shell,” according to the company.

Specifically, the company notes the “protection” aspect – “Three different liner technologies unite to optimally address variable force impacts. This tri-liner system integrates perfectly with the SuperMono S shell to create the ideal protection package.”
