Learn about Hockey Helmets, Cages & Accessories

Safety on the ice is crucial for every player, irrespective of age or skill level. Hockey helmets, cages, and accessories are designed to provide protection to the player’s head, face, and eyes from potential impacts, collisions, and flying pucks. As the intensity of the game increases, so does the potential for injuries, making it vital for every player—from young beginners to seasoned professionals—to equip themselves with quality protective headgear.

Hockey Helmets, Cages & Accessories FAQ

Why is it essential to wear a hockey helmet?

A hockey helmet is a fundamental piece of protective equipment that safeguards players from concussions and traumatic brain injuries. With the fast-paced nature of the game, accidents like slips, collisions, or flying pucks are unpredictable. A well-fitted helmet absorbs and distributes the force of impact, reducing the risk of severe head injuries.

What’s the difference between a hockey helmet with a cage and one with a visor?

Hockey helmets come in two primary styles: those with cages and those with visors. Cages offer full-face protection, typically made from metal, and are especially recommended for younger players or those playing at amateur levels. Visors, on the other hand, are usually made of transparent plastic, covering only the upper part of the face and offering clearer visibility. They are often chosen by professionals and advanced players who are more adept at avoiding facial impacts but still want eye protection.

How often should I replace my hockey helmet?

While helmets are built for durability, they don’t last forever. It’s recommended to replace your hockey helmet every 5 to 7 years or immediately after a significant impact. Over time, the protective materials inside the helmet can degrade, losing their effectiveness. Regular inspection for cracks, damaged padding, or faulty straps is essential to ensure maximum protection.

Can I customize my hockey helmet for a better fit?

Yes, many hockey helmets come with adjustable features to ensure a snug and comfortable fit. Different brands offer varying adjustability mechanisms like dials, clips, or inflatable bladders. Always refer to the manufacturer’s instructions and ensure the helmet sits level on your head, with the front edge no more than an inch above your eyebrows for optimal safety.
