The Easton Elite-Type Catcher’s Helmet Enhancer is a high-density polymer head covering designed to be worn underneath a catcher's (hockey-style) mask. It is designed to protect the head of the catcher or umpire during practice or competitive games. This Enhancer is currently being used by both players and umpires at all levels.
The Catcher’s Helmet Enhancer is a forehead piece that easily attaches to the inside of a catcher’s helmet for a comfortable fit.
When worn under a catcher's mask, the Enhancer is designed to reduce the force of an impact to the head. According to studies conducted using a CADEX Linear Impact Testing Machine at two major universities, this Enhancer can reduce the energy of a kinetic impact by up to 70 percent. It works by absorbing and redistributing the kinetic energy of an impact that could otherwise lead to a potential brain injury.
For best use, position the Enhancer inside the upper cushioned headpiece of your mask and place the VELCRO® strap (soft side up) over and through the Enhancer.
The Catcher’s Helmet Enhancer is made of a proprietary high-density thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) with Aircell polymers. It reforms after every impact, providing continual protection. The material is tough, lightweight, and durable.
