Important SAFETY Notice from Easton re BLACK MAGIC 2.0 Catcher’s Helmets 

March 26, 2021 – Easton is issuing this important consumer SAFETY Notice regarding our BLACK MAGIC 2.0 catcher’s helmets for two reasons:

(i) the metal “cage” or “face protector” on certain units may experience poor paint adhesion which causes a risk of paint particles dislodging and impacting the wearer; and

(ii) Easton has made a design improvement to the “rear cap” (the rear portion of the helmet shell that is separate from the main helmet shell, and which covers the back of the head) to better reduce impact to reduce risk of a head injury caused by impact to the rear of the cap.

Depending on usage and environment, most consumers will not experience any issues with their Black Magic 2.0 catcher’s helmet. However, to improve safety and performance, we ask that you STOP USING the BLACK MAGIC 2.0 catcher’s helmet and allow us to improve it for you free of charge.

NOTE: This SAFETY Notice only applies to certain BLACK MAGIC 2.0 Helmets:

If you have a Black Magic 2.0 catcher’s helmet, and it has a white manufacturing date label (see below image), please return it to us by following the instructions in this notice. If your Black Magic 2.0 catcher’s helmet has a manufacturing date label of any other color, you do not need to return it to us as it does not need these improvements. Upon receipt of your Black Magic 2.0 catcher’s helmet with a white manufacturing label, we will improve it by replacing the face protector (if necessary) and the rear cap. We will make these improvements free of charge, and we will pay for shipping both ways.

Please note the Black Magic 2.0 helmet is generally sold in a box set containing a helmet, a chest protector and a pair of leg guards, although some Authorized Easton Dealers may sell (or have sold) the Black Magic 2.0 helmet separately. You only need to return the helmet to us. We have provided a picture of the box set, and the helmet, below. You can confirm whether your Easton catcher’s helmet is a Black Magic 2.0 by checking the manufacturing date label on the interior of the helmet in the lower jaw area. You can confirm whether your Easton Black Magic 2.0 is covered by this SAFETY Notice by checking whether that same label is white.

If you have a Black Magic 2.0 catcher’s helmet with a white manufacturing date label, please contact Easton at 800‐632‐7866 and our customer service team will provide a prepaid shipping label and instructions for how to get your catcher’s mask improved.
