PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Sportmask X8 goal mask shares a similar design to the masks worn by NHL goalies Jonathan Quick, Cam Ward, and Chris Mason.  The mask's aggressive design provides great protection, along with the "pro look" that today's goalies crave.

The shell construction of the X8 is made using multiple layers of high quality fiberglass to create a shell that is very rigid and light weight.  The shell's aggressive design features pronounced ribs in the forehead, which keep the puck from squarely impacting the shell - pucks simply glance away.  In fact, the ribs are so pronounced that a flat puck that hits the head can only hit the ribs on the mask - it cannot hit the space between the ribs, which is also the part of the mask that is closest to the head.  The chin design of the mask has also been optimized to minimize direct impacts.

The sightlines in the X8 are unmatched.  Cage placement has been designed to give the goalie the best possible vision and protection, and the window has been cut deeper along the side of the head to give the goalie incredible peripheral vision.

The rigid shell is lined with high-impact absorbing padding providing protection from severe forces.  The mask is secured by a four point elastic harness which flows through a contoured skull plate that completely protects the back of the head, and also keeps the mask from compressing due to side pressure or impacts.  The traditional plastic clips that secure the harness at the top of the mask have been moved to the backplate for better durability and security.

The X8 is a great choice for goalies with slightly wider faces.  It comes with a "sizing kit" - a small bag full of extra foam pieces to help customize the fit of the mask to the goalie's head.

SIZE CHART

Using a set of calipers, take measurements from the following areas on the head.  After each point is taken, place the calipers on a ruler and record the measurement in inches.  Once you have recorded the measurement, consult the chart below to find your correct sizeCalipers can be found at pottery supply or art stores, and a Sportmask Caliper Template can be found HERE.

If you do not have access to calipers, a tape measurer can be used to determine a general fit.  Measure the circumference of your head from approximately 1.5 inches above the eyebrows, then consult the Tape Measurer Method chart below to determine your approximate size.

  • CHEEK:  Highest point of cheek bone just in front of the ears
  • JAW:  Clench your teeth and feel for the muscle at the point of your jaw.  Don't be afraid to apply pressure to the calipers.  You want to measure the width of the jaw bone, not including skin and fat.
  • HEAD SIDE:  Measure 1.5 inches above and center to the ear.
  • HEAD WIDTH:  Center of forehead to back of head
