Combining athlete insights and an unprecedented level of research into non-tackle football, Xenith LOOP is the most comfortable and best performing non-tackle headgear on the market.

Founded in Boston in 2006 by former Harvard quarterback Vin Ferrara, the football helmet, gear, and apparel brand, Xenith, puts the safety, performance and comfort of athletes first — from youth to pros — during every step of the design and engineering process. Those 20 minutes and every second of sweat and prep leading up to them? Covered. Now, having based its entire design and manufacturing operation in Detroit, Xenith, which introduced its first helmet in 2009, has debuted Xenith Shadow — a five-star rated helmet featuring an industry-first novel polymer-shell and adaptive fit technology within a patented shock matrix that moves independently of the shell.

And every member of the design studio is Team CCS.

Lead product designer Connor Riegle (‘17, Product Design) says that Xenith Shadow was his first big project at Xenith, along with product designers Bailey Boyd and Andrew Lark (both ‘17, Product Design), and that the design process was so comfortable it felt as if “we had brought a little bit of CCS here. We’re basically a solid CCS design team. It really feels like a family both from a Xenith perspective and a CCS perspective, so we have this shared history. We know each other’s paths, and we’re on that journey together.”
