STX K18 Gear Review (Head, Handle, Arm Pads/Guards, Glove, Shoulder Pads)

Kyle Harrison STX K18 Gear Review

STX K18 Gear Overview

Kyle Harrison is a world famous lacrosse player and member of Team STX on the LXM Pro Tour that continues to push himself as well as the game of lacrosse to another level. He has once again gone to the drawing board with STX product managers and designers to release his latest K18 line of equipment. The new K18 line has features that will benefit players as they continue on their journey through the sport of lacrosse. The new line also give players an understanding of what lacrosse has meant to Kyle over the years and what influenced him on the lacrosse field.

The new K18 line features a full line of protection from new gloves, arm protection (arm pads and arm guards), and shoulder pads. A new shaft was released with K18 line graphics that features his autograph as well as the iconic turtle design. But the real staple of this line is the new K18 U head where Kyle spent time working with the STX product managers to release a head that is truly a game changer.

Kyle Harrison has been wearing the entire K18 line while playing on the LXM Pro Tour. When I asked him if he had to “beef up” any of the protection in the line while playing any of the LXM events and this was his response:

                “Absolutely not, the padding has held up really well didn’t need to change or add anything. I would recommend this for any level of play high school and youth but maybe not the D1 or college level where the levels of aggression are at their highest. I mean on the LXM Tour we have a good group of guys but there aren’t too many high impact hits because we are all trying to accomplish the same thing by growing the game of lacrosse and entertaining fans. But this entire line is designed for the competitive player who is looking to enhance their skills and take their game to a whole new level.”

The K18 line has started to trickle into stores and right now we have the K18 U head and shaft available for purchase with the protective line coming right around the corner.
