Bauer’s 4500 model features dual density foam padding, creating a traditional fit inside the helmet. Many players enjoy this style of padding that Bauer has used for years, giving them the snug, classic fit they are looking for. The 4500 uses a dual density liner, found between the helmet’s shell and the thick layer of foam padding, adding extra resistance to head impact.
The dual ridge crown highlights the helmet’s construction, providing increased protection and comfort. On the outside of the 4500, the two-piece shell provides venting areas on the front, sides, and back, giving the helmet a sleek look while keeping your head cool during those fast-paced games. And the Ergo translucent ear covers provide a little extra protection for an area that helmet structures neglect.
The two-piece model also gives you the option to personalize the fit of the helmet. The quick tool adjustment feature allows you to easily unscrew the shell and expand or contract the helmet to give you the right fit for your head size.
The hockey helmet is arguably the most important piece of equipment in terms of safety. Experts state that concussions are mainly due to acceleration or deceleration of the brain. While helmets may not prevent concussions caused by these forces, they are crucial to limiting injuries of all kinds on the ice. The Bauer 4500 provides any level of player with a well-known fit and feel, and an iconic style recognized throughout the hockey world.
