It’s simple. When you get hit in the head you don’t want the force to travel into your head. We designed our new cage to deflect direct impacts away from a catcher’s head. With a strong center bar on the cage and its wedge shape, balls deflect upon impact.
With the goal of lessening the force to the head, we updated the mounting system of the cage. Without using any moving parts, which are prone to malfunction, we have mounted the cage in a unique way where the cage is not attached to the forehead. Instead, it is mounted down by the jaw and ears. When a ball impacts the cage the shockwave disperses to the mounting points and not directly to the forehead.
Advanced Shell Design
One of the most obvious new features is the shell. 21 vent ports throughout the shell are submerged so no foul tips will make direct contact. All the ridges in the shell increase the strength and durability of the helmet while at the same time make it look oh so stylish. The shell, 3/4 inch longer than our previous All Star MVP Catchers Helmets, allows for a more stable, balanced platform for it to rest, while at the same time increases coverage for protection.
The Back Plate
Are you tired of your snaps popping off? Our back plate features three “bridges” which force the snaps to stay hooked up no matter how hard you play. The straps also flow over the edges of the back plate, rather than through it, to keep the straps from snagging your ears when the mask is pulled on and off.
All of the System Seven catcher’s masks feature a completely removable liner. The liner can be machine washed with a mild detergent and we recommend that you let it air dry. The inside and outside of the shell are easy to clean once the liner is removed. These features will keep your mask feeling brand new over multiple seasons.
