This helmet could save your life.
This is our second Cascade LX helmet since 2016-2017. Our daughter is a US Lacrosse All-American and a former member of our state’s US Lacrosse National Tournament team. She would never consider playing without her helmet. She feels naked without it.
This helmet has prevented more than one trip to the hospital with a concussion or possibly life / career ending injury.
During a game one year at the Denver Shootout, an opponent made a ( wildly ) dangerous propelling shot and hit our daughter square in the center of her forehead. It was not a glancing blow at an angle. The player made a full windup like a penalty shot but without ANY clear space in the 8 meter.
The force of the ball knocked our daughter clean off her feet backward. Had she been wearing goggles, the full force of the blow would have been to her skull. Goggles simply don’t cover that high up on the head.
She didn’t black out or exhibit any concussed symptoms. After a few seconds on the ground she was able to get up and walk to the sidelines. She resumed play after a few minutes.
Without the Cascade LX we believe she would have been hospitalized or worse.
