Today we’re paying homage to the Cascade Pro 7. Considered an iconic lacrosse helmet by many.
Cascade Pro 7 Tribute
The Major League Lacrosse video footage you’re about to see is from the 2012 season. The music is not, however! These tunes are by Leo The Kind. Brian Dailey, newest member of the LAS squad, did the edit.
And just in case you’re in the mood to relive those glory days for real… we’ve gone ahead and found you a few Pro 7 helmets for purchase. Most are used (AKA pre-owned), but there are some gems hidden in there as well. Thanks eBay!
For as much as lacrosse helmets have evolved, Cascade’s overall design hasn’t really changed much since the Pro 7 days. Take a closer look at the design here:
The Cascade Pro 7 is one of the safest helmets on the market, used by top collegiate programs around the country. The padding inside the Pro 7 features Cascades Seven Technology, a ground-breaking impact attenuation system to more effectively manage energy transfer from direct impact. On impact, the Seven Technology liner system compresses to laterally displace energy and within seconds, completely reset to ready for the next impact. The total reset capability of the Seven Technology liner is proven to perform better than EPP Foam on successive impacts.
