The Mask Thread

Recommended Posts

Not to beat this horse any further, but Sportmask says it uses a “carbon fiber composite” shell, so curious how their particular flavor compares to others. Not clear where and how much carbon is in the mask. 

I go back to my earlier thought - the stiffness is just one element of the design, the contours/shape of the mask and how it reflects pucks away play a huge part as well and I imagine it’s important to find the best combination of both. 

As @TheGoalNet said I don’t think you can go wrong with any of these pro level masks, the approach to protection is just slightly different among them.

The biggest thing is to prevent too much deformation of the material on impact and disperse the shock. There are several ways to do it.

I do think masks could rapidly change as much as sticks do. Will be really cool to see if the weight and/or materials change a lot 

I'm honestly surprised by how little they've actually changed in the last couple decades. I wonder if something like Graphene or some other advanced material could ever make it into masks. The current standard shape seems to be tried and true, but who knows what might happen there as well.
