Leagues across the world have tried to adopt the best technology possible to keep their players safe. This impact technology has led to multiple advancements in the helmet industry, but it has been a relatively slow moving process. Today, that process has taken a giant leap forward.

CCM ushers in a new renaissance with the Resistance Helmet, which features multiple systems to help keep you safe at all times.

The Resistance's R.E.D. System is a series of liquid-filled bladders that reduce rotational acceleration of your head during any impact, whether it be along the boards or in the open ice. The Impact Pods along the liner combine EPP and plastic shock absorbers to reduce linear forces caused by hits. This type of technology probably weighs your head down, right? Not so much, as it weighs in at a measly .60 pounds.

Complete with an easy, tool-less adjustment in the back, the shell is designed with a pro-preferred look with geometry that helps absorb impacts. So you'll look good when you bounce back from a monster hit.

Resist injury and keep your game moving forward with the Resistance Helmet.

This is what the experts at CCM have to say

--Charles Benoit, Product Manager

The Resistance helmet is an industry-changing helmet with scientifically proven technology. In order to develop the technology behind the Resistance, we partnered with the University of Ottawa’s Neurotrauma Impact Science Laboratory to find new ways to improve safety.

Before we get into the details of the helmet, we must understand that every time a player gets a hit on the head, two types of acceleration occur: a linear and a rotational acceleration. And all helmets do a good job to manage linear acceleration. However, we worked on a system that helps manage rotational accelerations, as well. So for the first time, we came up with an engineered liner for our helmets that addresses rotational acceleration. It’s a series of pods that are placed throughout the helmet. These pods are all different sizes to optimize the performance of the bladders underneath, each one at different locations. The pod is designed to manage linear acceleration. Therefore, you have an engineered structure with a different type of foam in the middle of it. The engineered structure (the plastic pod) absorbs energy.

Below the pods is a series of bladders. The engineering behind these bladders was designed to encase a liquid-filled substance and, when the helmet is spinning, they slow down the rotation. These bladders are designed to resist the rotational acceleration after an impact to the head.

The R.E.D. (Rotational Energy Dampening) system is really what is innovative about this helmet. Also, unique about the helmet is the adjustment system. Most helmets adjust front and back. We’ve moved the adjustment system from the side to the back of the helmet -- one reason is for design, but is mostly for safety purposes. Studies from the NHL showed that almost 70 percent of injuries to the head came from the side. So, by moving the mechanism in the back, we were able to bring more support to the side of the helmet to maximize protection. Finally, the shell has the classic CCM DNA look, approved by our NHL endorsees to make sure it passed the mirror test.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT HELMET At the beginning I was confused about the sizing because the different websites have different charts. I purchased a large size anti it fits perfect for me. This is a great helmet: low profile, light and the fit adjustment system is great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very happy found a helmet that fit my head and doesnt hurt. the padding is very light and sits deep on my head unlike other brands that sit a bit high for me. very happy and the price is high, but for me its worth it. coming from a bauer 5100 to this was a huge upgrade. thank you ccm also the vents keep me nice and cool, another issue i have had in the past with other brands.

My size medium helmet is hurting my head?

I got it fitted at the store and they adjusted it perfectly. It fit extremely comfortable. When I put a cage on it and started using it in practice it would hurt my forehead after a while? Is there anything I can do? Do you guys know any other cases like this? Thanks, Vince
Asked by: Heipfam
You may not have the helmet fully adjusted to fit you properly. Try adjusting it as much as possible. If still having issues, take it in store see what the TH staff can do.

Resistance and Resistance 300

What is the difference between the two helmets from CCM? They're about $70 apart, but both offer R.E.D. etc.
Asked by: grumpyoldman
The CCM RES 300 helmet will weigh about 500 grams and the Resistance will come in at 252 grams. The Liner of the Resistance will have an Impact pod liner while the RES 300 will be be constructed with a multi-density foam.

Whoever ordered a large, what size head would it fit?

I've noticed the sizing is different here than on CCM and is different on other sites as well. From this size chart and other sites the Large would fit me (24in circumference) but from CCMs site it would be small. Was just seeing if anyone could confirm the sizing. Thanks, James
Asked by: Heipfam
It would fit hat sizes 7 1/4 - 7 3/4 approximately
