Reduce the shock of impact to an umpire's head by up to 50% with the cutting-edge energy absorption materials and technology of the Wilson Shock FX 2.0 Umpire Helmet. Featuring helmet-lightening titanium, maximum ventilation, a panoramic cage design and cooling helmet liners, its exclusive four-piston design technology features six vibration-reducing isolators that diffuse impact energy from an umpire's helmet in four key zones. By allowing the mask to "float" separately from the helmet itself, impact is absorbed to drastically reduce possible effects on an umpire's helmet and head. * Internal lab testing showed that the Wilson Shock FX System reduced impact forces to the head by up to 50% in a 60" impact drop test, when compared to a traditional helmet.

Mask Padding Falls Apart
PostedAugust 18, 2014
from Youngsville, North Carolina
I have had this Mask for 2 years. Every time I do a game with any moisture in the air a piece of the mask falls out on the field. I love the mask for it's vision but when Wilson offers NO soluction for this I may have to change to another vendor.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I've had mine for four seasons and its taken a beating. 94 mph fastball to the mask that the catcher didn't get a glove on. Yes, it rang my bell a bit but nothing like we've dealt with with the old style mask. The Shock really takes the impact out of that hit. They do have issues with the pads though they are easily replaced with hot glue gun.
I would recommend this to a friend!

Review 3 for Shock FX™ 2.0 Umpire Helmet - Titanium
the best mask ever!! but, only for a short time!
PostedApril 25, 2013
I am on my 3rd one of these masks in around 6 to 7 years. There is no better mask for umpiring in my opinion and I have been umpiring for 25+ years! Great vision, comfort, not too heavy, breathes great... I could go on. However, there seems to be some durability issues. Each one I have had, the "cooling" padding will come loose first, then the entire padding will come loose from the shell. Sometimes, like today, you will not even know the padding is gone until a bigger piece come loose, like it did to me today. I love these masks and don't want to switch, but for the price, I don't think I have a choice. I hope that's not the case! I have taken 2 pictures to show exactly what I am talking about. Please help!!!

I agree with the prior post. This is the best mask ever. I have however had the same issue with the padding. I have found those very easy to replace with a glue gun. I've been using mine for four seasons now and won't buy another brand. I do need to purchase replacement chin and forehead padding. I'm not sure if I want to get the leather replacements or if I'd rather have some like those in previous post but can't seem to find that material. Any help?
