The Bauer Re-Akt helmet has taken the top spot over the 9900 helmet, but takes on the more sleek look of the 4500 helmet, and aims to become Bauer's best helmet on their line. Bauer has added upgraded features such as a suspended liner, advanced foams, and a new size adjustment system that just add more levels of features and protection when compared to any other helmet.

The Bauer Re-Akt helmet has a Suspend-Tech Liner system which means when the helmet takes an impact from any angle the suspended liner stays with the head to keep the pads in the proper place where they can best do their job. While the suspend liner stays with the head, the shell and interior liner of the helmet rotate to absorb and deflect the impact. With the Re-Akt helmet taking on it's literal name and reacting to the hit, this greatly reduces the brain from excess movement that can be very dangerous. 

The Re-Akt helmet also features PORON® XRD™, this foam is very lightweight, flexible, breathable, and dissolves any serious force on impact. The use of PORON® XRD™ and Suspend-Tech liner are used in the two key areas of the helmet that receive the most impact. Less exposed areas of the helmet, areas proven to not take the majority of the impacts,  use Vertex foam. When compared, Vertex foam has the same density as EPP foam but is lighter and provides improved impact protection.

Bauer still offers the same tool free adjustment, but this time they changed it up a bit. The Re-Akt now has a 3.0 Optical Lock that is a single adjustment located on the center back of the helmet. To use you just lift up the tap and slide the adjustment piece to fit your noggin and you’re ready to go. Also for comfort Bauer uses memory foam like padding that fits snuggly to the head while providing optimum comfort. Lastly, for the stink, Bauer installed Microban® antibacterial protection to resist odors and mildew.

You’ll enjoy the latest comfort, style, and protection with the Bauer Re-Akt helmet. The game of hockey is quick, you have to be on top of your game and so does your equipment, and the Re-Akt helmet does just that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet but pricey I've been wearing this helmet for more than a year and its held up very well. I've used a lot of Bauer helmets that after about a year the padding starts to fall out. I was about to try a different brand and decided to give this a try and I'm glad I did. The fit is the best I've ever had and the helmet is so lite and breathes well. I never feel like I am over heating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best protection Awesome helmet with the best protection on the market today with that Poron XRD foam I cant imagine hitting my head without this bucket.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Waste of Time Bought this helmet today. When I got home and looked into the mirror, it is very bulky. Not even sideways, but straight up. I now know how Matt Hendricks feels looking ridiculous with his helmet halfway off his head. I don't see how this would be protective at all, it looks like it's made for a conehead. Usually Bauer makes great helmets, don't know why the Re-Akt is such a huge disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it This helmet fits like a glove and is super light. I tried on pretty much every helmet out there and nothing felt like the re-akt. Yeah the e700 is a little lighter, but the easton is a one piece shell and doesn't adjust to your head like the re-akt. The e700 felt like a bike helmet and not a hockey helmet. I have used this helmet for a couple months now and I can say it was worth the money. I get a lot of complements on the bucket too. Looks great with my easton visor. They run a little big so I got the medium, I wear a hat size 7 1/8

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great helmet This helmet has excellent sizing adjustments, will conform to almost any size head. The quality of the internal padding works very well. I have taken several hits to head and hit boards, hardly felt a thing. Bauer has come up with another great product with excellent protection.

would this be a good upgrade from the 9900?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes. I found the 9900 to move around a but much and didn't last. This helmet was the best fit I've had and after more than a year it's not shown much wear.

Will the Bauer Profile II cage fit well on the Re Akt?

How does the Profile II compare to the CCM 580 Cage.
Asked by: Anonymous
The Profile II cage will fit. Ideally you want to match the size of the cage with the size of the helmet. You can however move up one size (ex. Large cage with work with medium helmet). The Profile II will be a better match then the 580 because its brand on brand.

I have a XL 4500

Would I be able to wear the re akt L helmet?
Asked by: Anonymous
That is a tough call. I would assume the Re-Akt would fit like large, not a XL. If you have been in an XL for some time I would recommend staying in an XL. The 9900, which is a very solid helmet, comes in a XL and might be worth checking in on.
