New for 2012, the Bauer Profile 950 goal mask is an extremely protective, slightly modified version of the popular Bauer 960 goal mask - the #1 goalie mask in the NHL. Goalies with a wider facial profile who prefer a slightly heavier mask will love the fit and feel of the 950.
The shell of the 950 is constructed of fiberglass with Kevlar reinforcements in the forehead and the chin for added strength. The shell is thicker than the shell found in the NME series masks which make them very impact resistant and durable. Pronounced "ribs" in the forehead insure that pucks will not squarely impact the shell - they will simply glance away. The chin and throat protection on the mask is projected foreward somewhat, and the bottom of the mask is flared up to keep the mask from getting caught against the goalie's chest and arm protection.
Interior foams of the 950 are made of layed vinyl-nitrile foams, with a perforated top layer for additional ventilation and weight savings. The interior foam is mechanically attached to the mask, making it easy to remove for cleaning or mask painting.
The cage of the 950 is made of round bar stainless steel, and the grid lines have been designed for optimal vision.
