Review of Cascade's R Series Lacrosse Helmet

The highly anticipated release of the new Cascade R Helmet certainly caused a flurry of shopping activity both online and in lacrosse retailers on July 1st. Professional and amateur lacrosse players across the nation who witnessed the helmet’s debut performance at the opening games at the Konica Minolta Big City Classic were heading up the rush of orders.


Cascade R Helmets were delivered to many Major League Lacrosse players for sampling over kickoff weekend at the Classic, and these helmets really stood up to the hard-hitting action. Armed with pure Cascade DNA, the R Series doesn’t disappoint and conveys power, speed, and performance.

The Cascade R Helmet boasts:

  • Dual Seven™ Technology
  • Poron XRD™ Liner System
  • HardTail SPRfit™ System
  • SuperMono™ Shell
  • On-the-fly Customizable Jaw Pads

Streamlined Ordering – Fully Customized Cascade R Helmet

Those of us who couldn’t wait to get our hands on what Cascade is touting as the “culmination of years of research and development,” eagerly logged on July 1st to customize our own Cascade R Helmet. That’s right, customized! Select from 13 iconic colors and personalize the chin, visor, shell, and facemask options.

Protection, Fit, Design, & Feel

By far, this helmet has quickly become a favorite of pro players, amateurs, and hobbyists alike. Lightweight and stylish yet a solidly rigid system, this helmet has it all!!

Ultimate Protection with Dual Seven Technology™

Cascade introduces us to the wonders of Seven Technology™, which is the latest groundbreaking attenuation system in existence. Able to effectively transfer and manage the force from high energy, direct impacts, this liner system compresses and laterally displaces the energy within mere seconds and resets itself automatically for the next hit.

The Dual Liner System is the culmination of Seven Technology™ and Poron® XRD™ Foam, a highly pliable material that further dissipates linear force from low impact blows. You can immediately feel the difference both during and after a hit as the two technologies work together to offer the most dynamic impact performance helmet to lacrosse.

Facemask, Shell, Visor and Chin – Improvements in Design, Fit, & Visibility

Beyond the ability to fully customize most visible components of the Cascade R Lacrosse Helmet, it’s what is beneath the shell that really makes the R stand out.

SuperMono™ Shell & Poron XRD™ Liner System – The one-piece design of the SuperMono™ Shell and Visor offers both an uncompromising, rigid system and increased ventilation over other models. Not only does the new design seem to manage frontal impacts better with the Poron XRD™ Liner System, but it seems to move the balancing point towards the central area of the head to create a light-weight feeling uncommon in high-performance helmets.

HardTail SPRfit™ System – Cascade’s R Helmet combines the HardTail SPRfit™ System with easy-to-adjust jaw pads that can be customized on the fly, so you’ll always have the perfect fit without having to come off the field for adjustments.
