In this post, we’re going to do a quick review of the CCM Resistance hockey helmet. Look at the shell first; the air vents on the front and some more on the back provide a lot of great airflow.
CCM Resistance Ice Hockey Helmet
The shell design is closer to a one-piece design because, on the sides, they don’t have the adjustment features so it’s going to give you some really great stiffness on both sides from front to back and side to side.
The reason why they did not include the adjustment feature on the sides is because when you add in some more internal design and components, it lowers that overall level of protection so that’s why they moved it to the back.
It has a single tool-free adjustment mechanism so all you have to do is pop it up and it pivots on the two sides. Therefore, it really allows the helmet to cup underneath the occipital bone, giving you a great holding lock on the head.
In the liner, we see a totally new design from previous CCM helmets so it has two different functions. It will protect you from two different types of hits.
The first one’s going to protect you from linear impacts and that’s just a straight-on hit to the head you’re going to be protected from through those impact pods, which are the round cylinders.
These are constructed of an EPP lightweight foam with an internal shock absorber to protect a hockey player from straight-on impacts.
The liquid-filled bladders attached to the bottom of the attack pods then shield you from rotational impacts when you take a hit at an angle and your head spins.
Now what this does with that liquid fill bladder when you’re getting hit at that angle is slow down how quickly it’s going to spin your head and again, that’s going to help you protect from the rotational impacts, especially once you actually go ahead and hit something. Again, it gives you two different ways of protection.
For high-level comfort, they use two different types of liner foam too. This is a thick, medium-density foam, and then on top of it, they have soft memory foam, so it feels really great on the head. This is very similar to U-foam, which helps wick away moisture and keep it out of your eyes.
This CCM Resistance hockey helmet is pretty deep so it has a nice low-profile fit. Go ahead and throw it on your head; it really likes to sit down pretty low; therefore, it’s not going to be too tall or bulky-looking when you have it on, and it really looks great.
It also comes in a cage combo so it’s going to come with their new CCM resistance cage, which has a couple of great key features. At the top, it has two little shock absorbers so if you get hit in the cage, it helps dampen those vibrations from its rattling.
It also has a stainless steel flat wire design and a multi-density chin cup with a great antimicrobial coating on it as well.
