The Microdial 3 really works. As soon as I put the helmet on and turned the dial a few times, I instantly felt the helmet tighten up and lock my head in. The helmet felt extremely secure and didn’t feel as if it was going to move. Additionally, the use of an occipital lock keeps the helmet in place during gameplay. Another nice benefit is that the adjustments are quick, easy and can be made on the fly. And of course the FitLITE 3DS features tool free adjustments so you can adjust the size of the helmet to your head without having to waste time on the bench. Snap open the side clips, adjust, and off you go.
As featured in CCM’s Ultra Tacks protective gear, D3O smart foam makes its way to the FitLITE 3DS helmet. This smart foam has high shock absorbing properties that makes it an excellent choice to help reduce high impact energy throughout gameplay. The foam provides pro level protection and the concept is that, at its resting sate, the foam is very soft and malleable, but during the occurrence of a high energy impact, the foam tenses to absorb the energy.
