This season Bauer introduces the Bauer Vapor HyperLite Hockey Helmet. Building on the success of the Re-Akt 150, the Hyperlite helmet combines Bauer’s patented FreeForm system with a two-piece shell and the revolutionary Shocklite Foam Technology. Built on the foundation of Bauer’s mission to perfect lighter, quicker, and stronger products, this cutting edge hockey helmet is truly built for the elite level hockey player looking to bring their game to the next level.
Outer Shell Construction
After mastering the Re-Akt 150 FreeForm system, Bauer has optimized the Hyperlite even further to a two-piece shell with variable shell thicknesses in key areas. Bauer has combined the two-piece shell with a high occipital cut profile to reduce the shell weight even further.
Even though the Hyperlite is an astonishing 20% lighter than its predecessor the Re-Akt 150, Bauer did not lose track of the importance of comfort and fit to the player's head. The Hyperlite has optimized the head position in the shell so the player has a deeper fit and more secure wrap.
Internal Foams & Liner
New this season, Bauer introduces their new Shocklite Foam Technology. This revolutionary foam is built into all 5 key zones of the helmet for lightweight protection and comfort without sacrificing impact performance.
Bauer subjected each piece to over 2000 impact tests and 1500 plus hours of impact testing to ensure the Hyperlite is top-tier. The Shocklite Foam technology combined with the molded XRD multi-density foam protects the head across all energy levels. Finally, the liner is infused with memory foam and moisture channels to promote cooling, and ensure a comfortable wrap of the head.
Fit & Sizing Adjustments
The Bauer Hyperlite helmet has an independent width and length adjustment system that can be adjusted through three tool-free adjustment hinges/clamps. The width adjustment clamps are located just behind each ear cover and the length clamp can be found along the summit of the helmet. This FreeForm customization system allows for 18mm of width adjustment, which is approximately 2.5 times more than any other helmet on the market.
Bauer has also restructured their sizing in the Hyperlite model to two size ranges Small/Medium and Medium Large. Check out our size guide to find your perfect fit.
