Brand new for 2018 Bauer's research and development team has released the RE-AKT 95. This elite level helmet is the hybrid of all hybrids building from the IMS 9.0 and IMS 11.0. The RE-AKT 95 helmet structure has been designed for an optimal fit profile to keep you at the top of your game.
The new RE-AKT 95 helmet features four of Bauer's premier foam technologies all with a unique purpose and design. The VTX foam liner is 31% lighter than traditional EPP foam, and 18% better at dissipating impacts. The VTX foam is located in the base of the helmet, easily identified by the blue VTX graphics. In addition, the XRD dual layer temple pads provide both comfort and high impact protection, perfect for arduous battles in the corners. Furthermore, the SUSPEND-TECH Liner system, also found in the RE-AKT helmet, allows for slight movement during shearing impacts. Instead of locking your head to the helmet, the liner allows the helmet to absorb some of the twisting movement. This soft foam liner also offers moisture channels to promote cooling and wick away sweat while competing.
Another great amenity to the RE-AKT 95 helmet is the tool free adjustment and new occipital locking device. The locking adjustment switch is located on the top of the helmet which relieves the clunky, hard to hold adjustment concerns from its predecessors. The new occipital foam padding lock is positioned at the rear base of the helmet. The spring-loaded system allows the padding to expand or contract, adjusting to your specific occipital shape.
