If you’re born after 1975, visors are now mandatory. All players under 18 are required to wear complete face protection in the form of either a full face shield or a cage.
Visors provide excellent eye and nose protection but leave the jaw, cheekbones and teeth exposed to rogue sticks, skates and pucks. While they mostly provide excellent vision with limited blind spots, a common issue with visors is visibility issues when it gets scratched or fogged up. The Matrix X30 Pro Visor eliminates this problem with superior anti-fog and anti-scratch technology to deliver unrivalled optical clarity throughout your game.
Cages are the most durable and protective full-face shields you can get, with the metal bars spaced out to clearly see the action while protecting your entire face from sticks or pucks. They also don’t suffer from the issue of scratching or fogging up; however, they can be pretty heavy, and some players find that the bars impede your vision.
Full visors deliver the best of both worlds, with a clear visor around the eyes for maximum visibility and a breathable cage near the mouth to reduce fogging. They are usually lighter than cages but are still prone to fogging and scratches.
Order your cage or visor online, or visit our store at Willies Coventry to pick up all the kit you need to play ice hockey safely and comfortably.
