Designed to comply with the high standards demanded by the FIE. The mask uses a stainless steel shell and is fitted with the Leon Paul patented Contour-Fit® system making it significantly lighter and more comfortable. This design in mask fitting uses a 3 point adjustment system so that the fit can be altered to fit all shapes of head. The shape of the shell conforms to FIE regulations with the front angle less than 130 degrees and the maximum possible depth of shell for added protection.
The side pieces of the bib are recessed slightly from the mesh so they are protected from side hits. The cloth lame used to make sabre masks comes in many different qualities and the durability is determined by the number of metal fibres and their thickness. Our Lame is manufactured with the highest density of very small fibres that make it extremely flexible and very durable. Cheaper masks have fewer larger fibres which break leaving dead spots. We only use nickle Lame as this is the most durable. Some masks uses copper coated thread which go green after a few months and loss conductivity very quickly.
