LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The term nirvana refers to an ideal state of being. When the first catcher slipped on the new catcher’s helmet from Louisville Slugger®, it didn’t take long to come up with a name for the revolutionary new product. The
TPX® NIRVANA Catcher’s Helmet puts players in an ideal state of being with a combination of fit and function never before seen in catcher’s equipment.

Backstops throughout baseball and fastpitch softball are quickly finding relief from heavy, hot and constrictive catcher’s helmets with the all-new NIRVANA. The result of anatomically inspired design and innovative thinking by Louisville Slugger engineers, the NIRVANA fits better, weighs less, stays cool and gives catchers maximum peripheral vision all while providing optimal protection.

“It’s the most comfortable catcher’s helmet I’ve ever worn,” the first to try NIRVANA said. Its face-forward design features an off-set jaw line, allowing the forehead and chin to properly contact the padding for the ultimate anatomical fit. Compression-molded padding provides ultimate comfort and protection and interchangeable chin padding allows for a customizable fit.

Combine the custom fit features with a minimized cage design using over 39 percent less steel components and you are wearing a catcher’s helmet that feels as light and comfortable in extra innings as it did it the first.

The NIRVANA’s 20/20 vision, angled cage design allows maximum peripheral vision without sacrificing protection as well.

The NIRVANA meets NOCSAE standards.

The high school/college NIRVANA adjusts to fit hat sizes 7 1/8-inches to 7 7/8- inches and comes in black, navy, royal, scarlet, gray, dark green and maroon colors.
