Let’s talk about the 2018 Bauer RE-AKT 95 Hockey Helmet. The latest release from Bauer’s research and development team is an elite level helmet that packs protection and comfort technology from the IMS series into a new low-profile shell
The RE-AKT 95 was built from the inside out. People fell in love with the fit of the IMS 9.0 and IMS 11.0 helmets, so naturally, Bauer used that fit profile as a framework for the RE-AKT 95.
This was a genius move because getting the helmet structure dialled in is essential. No matter how many foams you add, if the helmet has pressure points or negative space, you’ll either be in pain or unprotected. A 3D mould of the IMS helmet was used to create the internal dimensions and geometry of the RE-AKT 95, and the helmet technology was built around that shape.
This fit profile is typically a good match for wide, round head shapes. If you loved the IMS 9.0 or IMS 11.0, you’ll love the RE-AKT 95.
For elite-level helmets, the traditional beige VX closed cell foam just doesn’t cut it anymore. The RE-AKT 95 features four of Bauer’s premier foam technologies, all with a unique purpose and design.
Let’s be honest; all the above doesn’t matter if you look like you’re wearing a Cooper SK 2000 (Google it, trust me. The Cooper’s were used in the original TRON movie!)
The RE-AKT 95 has a ventilated low-profile outer shell designed with smooth contours. This helmet looks good on its own, or with a visor or cage.
