The CCM Resistance Hockey Helmet features an innovative liner called the R.E.D. System (Rotational Energy Dampening) which allows it to manage rotational impacts like never before.
CCM Hockey worked with the Neurotrauma Impact Science Lab at the University of Ottawa to create a helmet that does an outstanding job of protecting players against both linear and rotational impacts. The new Impact Pods are constructed of a proven E.P.P. Foam with an internal shock absorber that allows them to handle the bulk of the linear and direct impacts.
Through intense research, CCM found the best way to dissipate rotational impact energy is to slow down the speed at which the helmet is spinning. With the liquid-filled bladders supporting the Impact Pods, the CCM Resistance helmet decelerates rotational spin and significantly increases the overall level of protection.
The front of the shell features thorough perforation for optimal airflow and comfort. The baseline material is constructed of a moisture-wicking medium-density foam that helps to keep sweat out of the eyes. CCM included a single, tool-free adjustment feature that ensures the back of the helmet securely locks onto the back of the head.
