its great! i had the 9900 prior to this and this is just as or more protective as the 9900 but with the looks of the 4500. i give this 4 stars because it could do without the size changing thing on the back because it makes it hard to put travel numbers on an its a little weird looking.Review by eman (Posted on 7/24/2016)
This helmet is amazing! I have this helmet in black with a 450 ccm white cage, and boy it looks great. It feels like a pillow with alot of protection. I have previously worn the Reebok 6k, Bauer 9900, and the Reebok 11k which broke, and by far the re-akt is the best.Review by The L-Train (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I love this helmet. I had 9900 before getting this and it is definately a step up. It is very comfertable. Also, in my opinion, the most protective on the market. Although it is a bit pricey.Review by Jim the Runner (Posted on 7/24/2016)
This is overall a great helmet. It is very comfortable and protective.Review by boombox (Posted on 7/24/2016)
love this bucky......i have a big dome and would always have to order a large in any helmet except the m11....this helmet is wide at the top and fits my head great in a medium......so happy to get away from large helmets that were too big and also the m11Review by beauty (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Looks preety good with a white ccm cageReview by danglesnipeandcelly (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Got this cause i got a concussion with my 9900. I'm speechless. Got it in black and got a chrome 480 cage, looks so good. It's so lightweight and the neck protector in the back is really comfy. Best bucky out there.Review by k (Posted on 7/24/2016)
after big hits the helmet tends to adjust in sizes without being touchedReview by jack (Posted on 7/24/2016)
This is the best helmet there is i never get any headaches and it has good protection with the technolgy bauer has made.Review by garrett galligos (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Great helmet, I had the M11 and got a major concussion lasting nine months, looking back the M11 was a joke, and I cannot believe that I bought that helmet. Since I got my re-akt I have gotten no concussions. This helmet looks great, and is one of the most comfortable helmets out there.Review by Nick the hockey player (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Overall this helmet is great. I am a pretty small player for my age so I get knocked around sometimes and I needed a helmet to protect me. I had the 11k and I hated It. My team was sponcered by Bauer so it was the Re Akt or 4500 and when I tried it on I immediately picked the Re Akt because it was so comfortable. This helmet is amazing and everyone should buy it.Review by Hockeyman (Posted on 7/24/2016)
This is an awesome helmet. The fit is superb and very lightweight.Review by Tikiotool (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Although I do like this helmet a lot. It isn't as great as everyone made it out to be. Yes, it's comfortable, and yes it looks good. but not worth 200. I had a bauer 4500 before this one and I liked it more.Review by Heinzey (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I bought this helmet and it was a huge letdown. I was expecting it to be a very comfortable and fitted helmet but it was not. I would not recommend getting the bauer re-AKT. If you are looking for a comfortable helmet that's tough and very protective get a cascade.Review by 90 (Posted on 7/24/2016)
This helmet is unbelievable. I wanted a protective helmet that was extremely lightweight and that looked great as well. The Re-Akt was exactly what I was looking for.Review by Tim (Posted on 7/24/2016)
The protection in this helmet is superb. Extremely comfortable and is just fantastic.
Along with its great lightweight and protection, it is also the best looking helmet on the market in my opinion depending on what cage you rock it with. I've had two of these for different teams and the Oreo Bauer RBE III cage is soo fresh on it. People comment on how nice it looks. The CCM FM80 cage also looks good but not as nice as the bauer.
This helmet is for sure worth the $200, and I would not by any other helmet.
I play in the QMJHL in canada and we have to wear all ccm and reebook stuff, but I have used the Re-ACkt many times and it is by far a much better helemt then both CCM and Reebok. Trust me, I know. Bauer is a far better company then CCM and Rebook, so i recommend you buy all bauer products, especcially this helmet. Most protective helmet on earth, no doubt about it. Buy this product.Review by Dangle Snipe (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I have had the Re-Akt since the day it came out, recently I was hit from behind and I suffered from a minor concussion, but when I got hit I could feel the helmet absorb it hitting the wall. The helmet protected me from getting an even worse concussion. This helmet is great, it is very protective.Review by big hipper (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I use all bauer equipment, and this helmet is probably the best helmet I have used. ive taken a couple of big hits and I felt fine after, because this helmet absorbs impact super well!!Review by snipin corners 24/7 (Posted on 7/24/2016)
great overall helmet did get a minor concussion with it but i could barely feel my head hit off the boards with the protection of itReview by ironman41 (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I play bantam AA hockey and I got this helmet after a couple of my teammates got concussions. The majority of my team has this helmet, and as of right now nobody has gotten a concussion! There is a reason why it is worn at all levels, and many pro's/college/ juniors players wear it, it offers unreal protection. It is certainly and investment, but, it is a product that has protected me in numerous hits and has inevitable prevent me from concussions. I recommend this helmet, and I can guaranty that you will be satisfied with all Bauer products.Review by Da Sniper (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Really great bucket, lightweight, really slick looking, now as a disclaimer I did suffer a concussion in this helmet but the dirty check I received on the play would have been no difference in any helmet. Some people have complained that the helmet has put pressure on the front's of their heads however I have not had that problem but it's something you may want to try on before buying, obviously at $200 for the helmet it's not a mistake that you want to make, for all I know this helmet really saved me in the check I received, I was knocked unconscious on the play and maybe worse with a different bucket so I cannot complain (Bauer would not warrant the helmet either sadly) this ones a real gem, a real reaction saverReview by Matty6610 (Posted on 7/24/2016)
This is the most comfortable helmet I've ever used. It is not as light as the Easton e700, but it is light enough and fits better than any other helmet out there. For all you kids getting concussions, helmets don't prevent concussions. They prevent skull fractures. Stop playing full contact hockey because you're not going to become NHL players anyway.Review by John (Posted on 7/24/2016)
I've been all over the place with helmets. I've had the V08, 7K, Bauer 7500, Bauer 2100, This is by far the best helmet I've ever owned I highly doubt I'll be getting anything different when this helmet is no longer usable. The fit you get off this helmet is just as good as the protection you get from it. At the beginning of the season I had very short hair and I let it grow out a bit so I love that the helmet was so easy to adjust. I haven't had a single concussion of even a headache since I got this helmet. The great fit,its so comfortable, the protection are all good but you know if you don't like the way it looks you aren't going to wear it and it looks great especially with a the Bauer Concept 3 full shield on it. It great for younger players as well because it will take a while for me to out grow it put I'm pretty close to being done growing. Only thing I didn't like was the price but really helmets and skates are something you really need to invest in.Review by HJK79 (Posted on 7/24/2016)
This is the best helmet that I have ever owned. I suffered a minor concussion but I believe in any other helmet, it would have been much worse. Looks pretty slick also.Review by Eazy-Z (Posted on 7/24/2016)
Most comfortable helmet I've used and my favorite. Super lightweight and doesn't feel like it's pressuring my head.Review by The Hockey Dangler (Posted on 7/24/2016)
