The Vaughn 9500 Goalie Mask features a complete composite outer shell constructed with Carbon and Aramid fibers for lighter weight and strength. The shell is high pressure molded and infused with epoxy resin to ensure complete saturation of the composite fibers and heat cured to provide durability and a smooth finish. The shell shape is carefully designed and contoured to move impact loads away from the frontal impact areas. Flared chin allows the mask to be tucked in the chest area to better protect the neck area. Extra wide facial opening provides enhanced vertical and peripheral vision. The cage design is a non certified large eye opening Pro cage and features stainless steel construction for durability and low glare. Internal padding of lightweight pro VN foam has full coverage and no gaps for continuous protection, padding is completely removable to allow for cleaning and maintenance.
