The V04 is a modern day version of the old CCM 492 still worn by players such as Scott Gomez and Tomas Kaberle. Its 2-piece shell design allows for easy adjustability and a more personalized fit. It consists of single density foams found in the classic helmets that is comfortable and forgiving. The V04 may not be the most protective helmet on the market but its a great value and will still keep your brain cells safe. The V04 also comes in a helmet/cage combo. The standard black cage comes with a floating chin cup that provides comfortable and adequate protection.
