Hockey Helmets Best in Test 2022: We Compare 3 Different Models

The hockey helmet is invaluable in protecting you against serious head injuries while playing ice hockey. We have compared three hockey helmets from established brands such as CCM, Bauer, and TRUE and looked closer at important features.

The most important feature of a hockey helmet is its ability to protect against concussions and other head injuries. The level of protection provided by the helmet is partially determined by the inherent properties of its structure and material, but it must also fit properly on the head. A helmet that is too big may shift or fail to absorb shocks, while one that is too small may cause discomfort and become a distraction when playing hockey. Comfort is therefore a crucial aspect, especially for those who play hockey actively with multiple practices or games per week. A lightweight and comfortable helmet that can be easily adjusted will allow you to focus fully on the game.

Most of our helmets come in two or three sizes, with each size covering a specific range of head circumference. To choose the right size, measure your head circumference from your forehead and all the way around the back of your head. Then compare the circumference to the size intervals on the product page. The helmet can then be adjusted both front and back to fit your specific head shape and size.

This is how we have compared the helmets

To compare hockey helmets, we have considered the price, weight, protection capacity (materials and features that provide extra protection), adjustability (how easily it can be adjusted to the head), and comfort (such as padding and lining on the inside of the helmet).
