Taking after the Re-Akt , and second in line to the IMS line, is the IMS 9.0 Helmet by Bauer. Providing ultimate game day protection, customized fit, and superior comfort the IMS 9.0 is designed with your noggin in mind.

Game day is here, is your helmet ready? The IMS 9.0 is, with a V2 Liner system, which combines Vertex foam and VN foam for optimal impact management for both high and low energy impacts, while providing a significant weight reduction.

Add the V2 system with Triple Density impact management foam and ergo translucent ear covers, the IMS 9.0 is more than ready to keep your most fragile body part protected from pucks, collisions, hits, boards and other threatening factors.

Customized fit starts with the spring loaded optical lock, which provides a snug fit to your noggin, and finishes with the tool-free adjustment system allowing you to customize your fit at any time.

Just as the Re-Akt, Bauer added dual purpose PORON® XRD™ foams treated with MICROBAN®, an antimicrobial protection to resist the hockey stank, to the inside of the IMS 9.0. PORON® XRD™ foams are pliable materials offering maximum comfort with ability to dissipate extreme force, giving you the best of both worlds.

Take care of the one place that stores all your hockey sense, with the protective, customizable, and comfortable IMS 9.0 Helmet by Bauer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super comfortable! I previously owned a Bauer 7500. The padding kept coming unglued even after regluing, so I decided to replace it. I tried on several Bauer and CCM models and decided on this because of the price and comfort. I instantly noticed that the IMS 9 was much lighter and more comfortable than my 7500. This helmet had no pressure points and perfectly fit my head. The Poron and V2 foams are super comfortable that I barely noticed I was wearing the helmet. Adjusting the helmet size was a bit more difficult than the 7500, especially pulling the pieces apart with the lock fully open. Not a big deal since usually this sizing is a one and done for me. Also, the strap/ear loops are a bit longer, so they tended to rub on my neck a bit more. I switched them with the shorter ones from my 7500, just a personal preference and definitely not a deal-breaker. Beware, however, that even though it is advertised that all Bauer cages fit all Bauer helmets, this is not true. I used my old 7500 cage with this helmet. The IMS 9 is more narrow than the 7500, so the 7500 cage will not fit into the J-hooks easily. You can bend the cage to fit, but I solved this by simply placing some spacers from a hardware store between the helmet and the J-hook to widen them. Now the cage slides perfectly into the hooks with no bending or resistance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome I bought a Rebook 11k and returned it after one use. This helmet fits way more naturally and comfortable. By far better. Only reason for a 4 star on comfort, is the 11.0 is a little more comfortable, but not worth the extra cash!

Will the cage from the M11 (large) fit this helmet in Large?

Thanks for the answer.
Asked by: pz29
This helmet will work with most cages as long as the sizes are correctly matched. For a large helmet, the best fit would be a large cage.

Will the ccm fm480 cage fit on this helmet?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes the cage should work. Ideally you would want to match the size of the helmet with the size of the cage. You can however be within one size.
