- Shock absorbers where the cage connects to the shell... mentioned by a competitor but not verified by us to absorb 50% more energy
- A titanium cage that makes the overall mask only 2.3 lbs... that's 0.3 pounds less than Diamond's DCH-EDGE and only a little more than a half-a-pound more than standard masks
- Lined with Coolmax for all those wicking properties to keep you cool and dry
- Aegis microbe shield for odor
- and more
Wilson has been a little behind competitors on helmets. They've had one, but I don't think anyone has been that crazy about it. We chose not to resell it. All-Star, carried elsewhere from $320 and up, has a titanium helmet that MLB and top umpires have preferred, and it appears this is Wilson's attempt to claim more of that top market where its traditional masks have dominated. I certainly think they've done a good job with the Shock FX helmet.
