Cascade Lacrosse CS-R helmet with Poron®XRDTM — DESIGNED FOR THE ELITE YOUTH PLAYER

Editor’s note: As brand partners with Cascade Lacrosse, we seldom leave a conversation with someone in Liverpool without being blown away by new strides in technology the company is making. Today we are honored to help Cascade share its newest innovation with the worldwide lacrosse community.

LIVERPOOL, NY — Cascade Lacrosse is proud to announce the launch of the CS-R helmet. Coming June 15, the CS-R marks the first of its kind: The Elite Youth helmet. The addition of a Poron®XRD™ Foam liner and a memory foam side fit provides elite level protection for the U12 player. The R design gives this lid the same speed and elegance, as it’s older, All-American, brother.

We are very excited to bring the CS-R to market and finally give the youth player an elite helmet option, said Cascade Category Line Manager Jeff Colburn.

When designing this product we focused on using the appropriate materials needed to maximize protection and comfort for the U12 player. What we ended up with was a new liner system and improved fit, all wrapped in an R-inspired design, Colburn articulated.


Engineered to specifically address the collisions that take place at the U12 level, the CS-R introduces the first helmet in the Cascade line with a combined Gen3 EPP and Poron®XRD™ Foam liner system. Compared to its predecessor, the original CS, the new liner system performs better on linear impacts. A pliable material, Poron®XRD™ offers maximum comfort and elite protection for the impacts sustained at the U12 level.


The upgraded Full-Pivot System is designed to fit the anatomy of players less than 12 years of age as the rear third of the liner pivots to grasp the head, ensuring a secure fit. NEW memory side-fit provides a comfortable and protective lateral fit.


Inspired by the speed and performance of the R family the CS-R helmet design incorporates Cascade DNA into all of its components. The CS-R’s FutureStar Mono™ R SHELL is a one-piece shell and visor, sized for the youth player, that creates a more rigid system to better manage frontal impacts. The 3-bar Jr. R Mask is designed for smaller faces reducing weight and increasing vision. The new CS-R Chin Piece is color matched and only available on the CS-R helmet. With new custom color options, the CS-R gives youth players the ability to design a helmet that looks like those of the superstars.
