The New CCM Resistance Helmet

When it was time to get each of my girls helmets before hitting the ice for the first time, I only chose from the CCM brand. Whether your child is in hockey or just loves to skate – there’s no room to leave out safety. Head injuries are serious business and I think we all know that.

There’s a big reveal coming from the CCM brand, and it’s been 4 years in the making.

The new CCM Resistance Helmet was developed and tested with the Neurotrauma Impact Science Experts at the University of Ottawa. The helmet was impact-tested on head models to analyze the stress and strain hockey-related impacts might cause to the brain.

After all, current helmet certification standards only require the measurement of linear acceleration, similar to how a person would fall on the ice. In reality, an impact to the head causes both linear and rotational acceleration.

Therein lies the issue and CCM wanted a solution which protects the head better than the current standards.

To the average person, you can spot the new CCM Resistance Helmet by the characteristic R.E.D. System and impact pods that are on the inside of the helmet.

They are a series of liquid filled bladders that allow for improved rotational deceleration of the head. So basically the construction include impact pods and a shock absorber to help reduce impact to the head, from all angles.

One issue that I had with helmets {since I am not a hockey mom or an expert when it comes to helmets} is the adjusting to fit perfectly. Regularly I take the girls helmets {with them in tow} into sports shops and have this done for me. Better safe than sorry, yet sometimes they needed adjusting while at the rink and I always worried that I wasn’t adjusting them correctly.

Well, the new CCM Resistance Helmet has a simple tool-free adjustment mechanism at the back of the helmet which allows for a quick, customized adjustment for a great fit and high level of comfort. So, more user friendly for all, better looking and quicker to adjust on the fly.

The CCM Resistance Helmet can be used on hockey players of all levels {many NHL players have already switched to the new Resistance helmet} right down to young children that simply love to skate recreationally like mine.
