The 5 Best Lacrosse Helmets for 2023

Lacrosse helmets come in all different sizes and shapes but they’re all there to serve the same purpose: protection. Shopping for a new lacrosse helmet can be frustrating: the different prices, padding options, and material all vary significantly between each helmet. Luckily for you, we've gone ahead and picked out 5 of the best lacrosse helmets you can take to the field this year.

5. STX Rival

At number 5 is the STX Rival: a top-tier lacrosse helmet built for improved breathability and additional interior padding.

The STX Rival lacrosse helmet is designed to outperform and outlast the competition. With a Sure-Fit™ air system for a close, pump-adjustable fit, integrated ventilation and comfort liner for maximum performance and protection, the STX Rival offers a level of performance that won't break the bank.

4. Cascade CPV-R

Next up in our countdown is the Cascade CPV-R: a helmet engineered to give both protection and comfort.

The Cascade CPV-R is designed with performance in mind. With a Gen3 EPP liner system for elite level protection, a SPRfit™ system for better 360 degree contoured fit, and a slight V-shape, chevron mask for increased downward vision, the CPV-R provides top-notch performance and protection.

3. Cascade S

Yet another classic from Cascade, the Cascade S cements itself at number 3 on our list.

The Cascade S Lacrosse helmet is a top-tier lacrosse helmet specially engineered for a better 360 degree contoured fit and expanded ventilation ports. The Supermono S Shell is rigid yet lightweight, the SPRfit system provides an unmatched fit to maximize player comfort, and the XFLO technology for maximum ventilation ports, providing premier performance and protection.

2. Cascade CPX-R

Coming in at number 2 we’ve got the CPX-R helmet by Cascade.

Even though the CPX-R is a value-priced helmet, its high-quality components offer a comprehensive 360 degree contoured fit and superior protection.

The SevenTechnology™ liner system enhances energy transfer from the ball to the head, and the SPRfit™ system eliminates gaps between the shell and the player's head for a better 360 degree contoured fit. The CPX-R is a top pick of both college and professional programs around the country for good reason: it delivers great performance at an incredible value.

1. Cascade R

Rounding out our list of the best lacrosse helmets of 2023 is the one-and-only Cascade R.

The Cascade R has been designed to deliver the highest level of comfort and protection available in a lacrosse helmet. The use of the innovative Seven Technology™ liner system allows for an increased energy transfer throughout the impact zone, while its unique PoronXRD™ Foam system is both soft and cozy. The Cascade R's SuperMono™ R Shell construction provides unsurpassed ventilation and better vision.
