The Cascade R is the most advanced lacrosse helmet that Cascade has ever created. For years, Cascade has set the bar when it comes to impact management and they have exceeded expectations once again with their latest Cascade R. If you thought the PRO7 ™ was good, wait until you try the R which is the 2015 version of the “bestselling” PRO7™.
Much like its predecessor, the Cascade R reintroduces the ground-breaking SevenTechnology™ liner system that effectively transfers energy from direct high energy impacts. When a collision occurs, the SevenTechnology™ liner system compresses laterally displacing energy within seconds, and then resets to its original state for the next hit.
One new feature that the Cascade R offers is the PoronXRD™ comfort liner foam that works with the SevenTechnology™ to disperse impact pressure while also providing maximum comfort. The PoronXRD™ is a pliable yellow material that dissipates linear force from low energy impact.
A feature that stands out in the Cascade R is the NEW HardTail SPRfit™ which is an adjustable occipital pad system that can be resized on the fly to get a better 360 degree contoured fit. This will ultimately allow the player to tighten the helmet to his liking while also keeping it in an optimum position for protection.
Lastly the Cascade R is encapsulated by the SuperMono™ R Shell that is a one-piece shell and visor combo. This design creates a more rigid system against frontal impacts by dispersing collision energy evenly around the body of the shell. Cascade also moved the balance point closer to the middle of the helmet to establish a lighter and more symmetrical feel when the helmet is sitting on the players head.
The innovative technology instituted in the Cascade R is astounding, making it one of the most sought out lacrosse helmets on the market.

This is easily the best looking helmet on the market right now. In terms of comfort however, it isn't as comfortable as the cpx-R or Pro-7. Even with the thinnest exchangeable ear pads, the helmet still pinches my ears very tightly against my head. A problem I never had with the cpx-R or Pro-7. Otherwise, it fits comparably to the cpx-R although the R does fit better on the forehead. Also, the R has notably better sight lines than the cpx-R. All in all though, I would still recommend this if you have a smaller or more average head.
