Bauer RE-AKT Helmet

Along with the Bauer Nexus product line, Bauer Hockey also unveiled the Bauer RE-AKT helmet at BauerWorld 2011 last week in Orlando, FL. It is set to compete with new offerings from other major hockey equipment manufacturers, such as the Easton E700 helmet, and the Warrior Krown 360 helmet.

The first hockey helmet specifically designed to help manage rotational impacts, the Bauer RE-AKT helmet features a true, free-floating suspension liner that moves independently from the VERTEX FOAM liner, which helps protect the brain from excessive intra-cranial movement. The new elite helmet, which will launch at retail in May 2012, also features a two-piece shell design and central tool-free adjustment to ensure proper fit, which is the most important aspect in protecting players of all levels.

Diving deeper into the specs, Bauer has made the RE-AKT helmet out of a two piece shell, allowing adjustments to fit different head shapes. The vents on the helmet were placed strategically for increased air flow, helping to keep your head at an optimal temperature throughout game play. To help keep your head locked in place, Bauer has used the occipital lock 3.0 adjustment feature, located in the back inside portion of the helmet. The occipital lock also helps to ensure a great fit.

As we mentioned above, the Bauer RE-AKT helmet features a vertex foam liner. The vertex foam is much lighter than the EPP foams typically used in helmets, but offers improved impact management. To help with comfortability, as well as protection, Bauer has placed memory foam pads along the temples. This will provide a more custom fit for your head, as well as increasing comfort as you wear it.

The new RE-AKT helmet from Bauer will also feature MICROBAN antibacterial protection. This is going to help keep your helmet smelling fresher for a longer period of time, and is also going to make it resistant to bacteria and mildew growth. Things like odor and bacteria protection are becoming increasingly important for the consumer, and Bauer is keeping up with demand by implementing antibacterial protection on several of its new products this year.

In terms of  design, the RE-AKT was inspired by the HH4500 helmet, but was updated to have a more modern appeal.

      Seth, material that forms to your body part. Think those infomercials talking about pillows and how you can have the best nights sleep of your life and that is the stuff.

    Does anyone have issues with the padding stiffing up? I bought the Helmet a 9 months ago and the temperpedic material is the consistency of rubber and no longer soft
