Winningest NCAA D1 Franchise Realigns with Industry Leader in Head Protection
LIVERPOOL, N.Y., Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Cascade Lacrosse, the industry leader in head protection, announced today that Johns Hopkins University will wear Cascade helmets for the upcoming 2018 season. Cascade helmet usage now approaches almost 75 percent across all NCAA Division 1 schools.
“We are excited to renew our relationship with Cascade,” stated Hopkins Head Coach Dave Pietramala. “Having worn their helmets before, we have great confidence in their product and are appreciative of Cascade’s ability to think outside the box when it comes to design,” continued Pietramala.
Johns Hopkins will wear the newest elite Cascade helmet, the S. The S incorporates several new, game-changing helmet technologies, including a new tri-liner integrated with the shell, new Xflo ventilation that more than doubles the breathability of previous helmets models, and a new Vision bar facemask that ensures the ball is never out of sight.
“The Hopkins name is synonymous with lacrosse and we’re thrilled to have them back on our squad,” commented Kevin Simmons, Sports Marketing Manager for Cascade Maverik Lacrosse. “Hopkins has such a rich history in the sport, like Cascade, so we’re very proud to reunite our two great college lacrosse brands.”
The S helmet is available through Cascade’s 48-hour factory custom manufacturing at a starting retail price of $289. Visit FactoryCustom.com for a full selection of color and component options and to make your own custom team design.
