Bauer NME IX Intermediate Fit 0.5 is the next generation of the popular Bauer NME series. The Bauer NME IX mask has the look of Bauer VTX Pro mask which is worn by goalies like Ben Bishop of the Dallas Stars. The NME IX has a very good protection rating because of a composite Powercore shell construction. Its Power Core shell is a blend of fiberglass and epoxy, which allows for better dampening throughout the forehead and chin. This mask uses a Poron and XRD liner construction which is not only extremely comfortable, it can help with deceleration of impacts to the shell of the mask. The Powercore Shell is rigid enough to deflect shot off the mask with little flex to the shell with the XRD & Poron foams helping absorb the remaining impact. There are no guarantees with any mask and even with the best protection available, an injury may result. It is our opinion that the Bauer NME IX is a well built mask and provides a substantial upgrade compared to polycarbonate (plastic) goalie masks. There are four sizes to the NME8 masks, Fit .5 = Junior, Fit 1 = Small, Fit 2 = Medium, Fit 3 = Large. A padded mask bag and an extra sweatband are included on each NME IX mask purchase. For price, style and protection – the NME IX is definitely a mask that is worth consideration for anyone serious about protecting their head.

Goalies Plus is very particular about the kind of masks we sell, we feel there are good masks on the market today and unsafe masks on the market today. Our pro level masks and high mid-level masks are all glass lay-up shells with either carbon or kevlar reinforcement. These types of masks are very rigid, when a shot hits the goalies mask – the mask is solid enough to deflect about 90 to 95 percent shots away from the head without any or minimal shell flex. What this means is the mask shell will not flex towards the goalies head under impact.
