Avision Ahead Senior Hockey Shield/Cage Combo

It's true the NCAA rules committee polled players and 70% said that they would abandon the full cage for a half shield. Can you blame them? The vision of wire cages is obstructive and they're just plain ugly. The AVISION AHEAD Mask is like playing hockey with a half mask only you get to keep your teeth and your smile.

The Avision mask gives a player a crystal clear, tough as nails look at the game up ice or god-forbid if they look down for the puck at their feet it might be the last crystal clear view they see before the lights in the ceiling of the rink. The cage frame is closer to your face than the competition so you enjoy the protection without seeing the game through the bars. The cage frame is just 5.2 oz. So light you barely know it's there till you get rocked in the jaw and you're okay.

Adult players realize that they too want to stay the good looking guys and gals they think they are on the ice or in their office cube...and dental visits are not free.

Best I've worn
February 23, 2015
I love this shield. It never fogs and has been tough as nails as far as scratches etc. I have worn this for 2+ years and would buy another. Several guys in our league have made the switch and feel the dam.

Functional Shield Combo

It works fine, a little spendy.
Beats a cage for visibility, fitment a little fiddly.

Not really worth the price, would recommend anyone to just stick to a cage. Looks kind of big and bulky on my CCM helmet

Good visibility
February 4, 2015
The overall visibility of the shield is pretty good, but I did have a slight problem with condensation buildup after about an hour.

Quality mask
January 13, 2015
My son decided he wanted to go back to cage, he felt his vision was not as good when looking down. No problem with the quality of the mask and did not fog up as advertised.

Very clear visor, doesn't fog.
October 31, 2014
I see the ice much better than I did with my cage, however there are drawbacks: It's harder to breathe, harder to yell at your teammates, and your sweat still gets on the shield, so you'll need to wipe it now and then.
No fog, great vision!

Amazing Visor
January 23, 2014
I received the visor for Christmas & I wish I would have received it sooner. This thing is amazingly clear, scratch resistant and flat out DOES NOT fog up! I took a stick blade to the visor, no discernible damage or scratching! The weight appears no better or worse than other similar visors. It is a little bulkier than other full shields, but my field of view; specifically my peripheral vision is wide open; couple that with the fact you can replace just the visor portion when the time comes, makes this visor combo well worth the money.
This thing is amazingly clear, scratch resistant, DOES NOT fog up, ability to replace just the visor.

Truly Never Fogs
November 14, 2013
I have used Intech and then Bauer face shields. Always start to fog after a several uses. I've been using my Avision helmet for 18 months and it never fogs.
It is a little tight or closer to the chin than the Bauer shield.

Excellent Product
July 16, 2013
I just switched to this shield combo after many years of wearing a full cage. After my first game I noticed a huge improvement in my field of vision and a significant reduction in weight. I could not be happier with this product. There was no problem with fogging during play although I did notice there was a reduction in airflow around my face and head. I cannot see me returning to a cage after experiencing this shield.
Improved field of vision, light weight, no fogging.
Reduced air flow around head and face.

First game impression....
June 10, 2013
The way hockey gear is marketed I was a skeptical in what I was reading about the Avisian Ahead hockey shield but I decided to give it a go. I have average skill sets and speed for an beer league player and I first started off with an cage 10 years ago and then changed over to the half cage / half visor Itech FX50, and then back to a cage - the Bauer Re Akt titanium cage (for lightness and the advertised Tru Vision improved visibility factor). I didn't like how the design of the FX 50 half cage rounded up to the nose area as I found this to interfere with my vision when I looked down t my skates for the puck. The Bauer Titanium cage is very light but the TruVision design did not even come close to improving my look down vision. I played with the AA face mask it for the first time last night at Britannia ice rink in Vancouver, it was 15C (59F) outside, not too warm, not too cold, and I must say I was quite impressed. As advertised the visor did not fog at all and the field of view was noticeably better, and unlike the FX50, looking down there is no rise in the nose area because the shield is cut straight across. I immediately noticed that my peripheral vision was much better than the FX50 and I felt a greater sense of 'space'. Looking down it was easier to find the puck in my skates. For me, these two visual experiences were the best part of the AA face mask. There is about a 1/4" gap between the shield and the rim of the helmet to provide greater ventilation and adding to the greater sense of space. If you are looking for a 'visor only' field of view experience with protection to your mouth and jaw area then I highly recommend you give this product a try. The price point is fair, and the replacement visor cost are really reasonable at $35. I use a size medium Easton E600 helmet and I ordered a size large 'clear' adult face mask. Packaging included clear instructions, steel J-clips and screws. Installation was completed in a few minutes. The fit was right on, no rubbing issue along the side of helmet, however, I changed out the stock chin pad and strapping with the one from my Itech FX50 because the included strap were not long enough and the chin cup was not a good fit.
Excellent field of view. Very good 'look down' view to your skates, noticeably better than the FX50. Excellent anti-fogging performance. Very light - comparable in weight to the Bauer Re-Akt titanium cage.
Chin cup fit felt narrow and inadequate. Chin cup strap was about two inches too short.

Best visor EVER!!!
February 25, 2013
Switched out all of my Bauer Recons after trying the Avision visor. It truly never fogs (requires an occasional toweling off of moisture from condensation), is super light weight and very easy to assemble.

By Derek Treusdale from San Jose, CA on October 20, 2014
Does this come with hardware for mounting to a helmet that did not come with a mask? i.e., the fasteners on the side, the clips on the side, and the screws at the top?
By Customer Service on October 21, 2014

Yes, it comes with the top mounting brackets, J-Clips and dome screws for the front attachment. The straps also have clip fasteners. It does not include the helmet screws for the sides of the helmet where the straps attach.

By Shawn from San Diego on April 22, 2013
Does this fit on any Reebok helmets?
By Jeremiah at on April 23, 2013

Yes, this shield should be compatible with all Medium and Large Reebok helmets. You may need to make additional adjustments in order to fit it onto a Small Reebok helmet, though.

By Dan from Boston on October 4, 2013

Yes, it will fit well on a Medium or Large Krown. It will likely be a bit too wide for the Small Krown.

In general, how often do people have to replace the lenses on these? Are they scratch resistant?
By Jeremiah at on June 11, 2013

Yes, per the description:
"Scratch Resistant Lens on both sides"
We haven't had many inquiries about replacement lenses, so it seems that they're holding up quite well so far. If you do need a replacement lens, please give customer service a call.

Will this fit the Small Mission Inhaler Helmet? If I am the 53cm size should I go down to a youth helmet or small adult?
Looking for shield with cage on bottom half. Are there any other options?
By Customer Service on November 12, 2014

Yes, you would be a Small in most helmet models. Youth would be too small. Regarding shield/cage combos, you can also go with the Bauer Hybrid Shield, which is available in size Small and will provide a great fit.

By Customer Service on February 28, 2014

It ought to fit the 11K Helmet in Medium and Large with no issues. The Avision Shield fits just about every helmet in Medium and Large.

By Keith Oliveira from Port St. Lucie, Florida on March 23, 2014
Just purchased this item along with a CCM Vector 8. Been trying to install on helmet and have been add it for over an hour. I read in a previous question that it would fit a ccm vector 10. Why does it not fit the vector 8? Any tips please. Also the screws for the j hooks, one of them refuses to come out. Why????
By Customer Service on March 24, 2014

The backside of the the screw probably needs to be held in place from the inside with a phillips screwdriver so that it doesn't rotate as you loosen the screw from the outside. You may need to pull back the padding on the side of the helmet to get access to the backside of the nut. Are the J Clips keeping the shield from fitting properly? What size is your CCM V08 Helmet?

By STEVE from Trinity, FL on November 18, 2013
By Customer Service on November 18, 2013

Yes, it will fit on every helmet we carry.

By Sasha from Israel on June 30, 2013
Will this fit Easton E700 small?

By Jeremiah at on July 1, 2013

Yes, it will fit, but you'll likely need to adjust the J Clips.
