EASTON DIAMOND SPORTS, LLC. EXPANDS FACE PROTECTION LINE, WITH ADDITIONS TO POPULAR EXTENDED JAW GUARD COLLECTION AND NEW UNIVERSAL JAW GUARD SYSTEM

THOUSAND OAKS, CA. (August 29, 2019) – Easton Diamond Sports, the industry leader in equipment innovation and technology, today announced the launch of more colorway options for its enormously popular Extended Jaw Guard helmet accessories collection as well as a new Universal Jaw Guard system for easier and wider use across many of Easton’s batting helmet lines. With the introduction of its Extended Jaw Guard last year, Easton has experienced rapid growth in the protective gear category and expects the new offerings to provide players with greater safety at the plate but also further progress the accessories’ stylish trend.

 

The Extended Jaw Guard is available in left-hand batting and right-hand batting options, is made of impact-resistant thermoplastic and fits Easton’s Pro X™, Elite X, Z5 2.0™, Z5™, Gametime and new Alpha helmets in all sizes without the need to drill any holes. In addition to broadening its solid color options to 17, the Extended Jaw Guard is now also available for the first time in camouflage and USA stars/stripes patterns.

 

The all-new Universal Jaw Guard comes pre-assembled with the Z5 2.0 helmet and, much like the Extended Jaw Guard, fits all current Easton baseball batting helmets in all sizes. The Universal Jaw Guard can be easily switched between left and right sides by players.

 

“With increasing focus on player safety in recent years, more leagues, players and parents are looking to increase the level of protection of baseball gear,” said Easton Category Manager Ian Fung. “Recognizing this, Easton has launched the Extended Jaw Guard and the Universal Jaw Guard that offer batters extra protection on the side of their helmet that faces the pitcher.” Easton’s new Extended Jaw Guard options and Universal Jaw Guard are available for purchase in stores as well as online starting today, August 29th.
