Heads up: Head protection in contact sports is getting plenty of well-deserved attention, and CCM hockey helmets heed the call. More professional players wear CCM helmets than they do any other brand.
Player safety is a top priority at CCM. The company works with the Neurotrauma Impact Science Laboratory at the University of Ottawa to continually advance its helmet design and safety. CCM and the NISL test all CCM helmets beyond standards required anywhere.
Players experience the results of that work in helmet fit and protection technology. Remember that a well-fitting helmet isn’t just more comfortable—it’s safer. CCM’s two helmet lines offer different overall shapes and further fit adjustments within those shapes. The Tacks line is more snug around the temples and fits well on narrow, more oval head shapes, while the FitLite line fits well on wider, rounder heads. Look for the I.Q.SHION memory foam comfort liner in some models for further enhancement of comfort and fit. Many of CCM’s helmets feature a combination of patented and patent-pending materials called D30. These are “rate-sensitive smart materials” that absorb shocks differently depending on the force of the impact, for premium-level protection in a variety of circumstances.
