The Bauer RE-AKT 100 Hockey Helmet with Cage is one of Bauer’s most advanced helmets to date. For this model, Bauer improved on key technologies from the original RE-AKT and combined them with the Seven+ Technology that debuted in the Cascade M11 and M11 Pro helmets. The resulting product is a very comfortable helmet that showcases exceptional linear and rotational impact protection.
The base level of the RE-AKT 100 features new VTX Foam that is lighter than traditional EPP and has even better protective properties. Four Seven+ Technology Pods are set into the rear portion of the VTX Foam, enabling them to combat high-energy impact hits that occur when a player slams their head straight back onto the ice or boards.
The VTX Foam and Seven+ Technology do a great job of protecting against high- and low-impact blows, but the Suspend-Tech 2 System was designed specifically to combat rotational impacts. This revolutionary design is constructed of FleXorb Technology and Bauer’s exclusive Poron XRD Foam, all built into a four-way stretch fabric. This creates a free-floating separation that minimizes rotational impact energy, since the outer liner can move independently of the internal liner.
On both sides near the temples, the Re-Akt 100 helmet has spring-loaded foam that automatically self-adjusts to different head sizes. The new YourFit System adjusts with a single, tool-less feature on the rear that can provide additional length front to back. The occipital-locking pad is also tool-free and is strategically placed to allow players to put their numbers or logos on the rear (unlike the original RE-AKT). The foam that sits on the forehead features moisture channels that guide sweat away from a player’s eyes and clears it to the sides of the face.
