The most important aspect when choosing an ice hockey helmet is the size. Your helmet size depends on your head circumference, which is measured at the widest part of the head – beginning at the forehead, crossing the ears and the back of the head. As an example, size M corresponds to a head circumference of 54 cm to 59 cm. If in doubt, I recommend choosing the larger size.
First of all, you need to find out if you're right-handed or left-handed. It’s the lower hand that counts; if you have your right hand below your left, you're right-handed. If the other way around feels more natural to you, you’re left-handed. Your stick should be long enough to reach your nose (or your chin if you’re wearing ice skates). The so-called flex depends on the stiffness of your stick. The preferred flex is individual. As a general rule, defenders have regular or high flex, while forwards have lower flex. The most popular type is somewhere in the middle: a flex 85. However, if a professional player gives you his or her stick, it probably won’t fit you. Professionals have tailor-made sticks with individual flex and shaft, which are adjusted to suit the specific type of player they are. Therefore, every professional ice hockey stick is a one-off. The types of sticks that we offer have the most popular flex that are suitable for most players.
Gloves need to protect and keep your hands warm. If you don’t ice skate regularly, you don’t need expensive gloves, but if you’re planning to spend a lot of time on the ice, it’s worth going for high-quality gloves. These are more robust, durable and have a higher quality system for absorbing shocks. Gloves sizes are measured in inches. 13"-15" gloves are for adults (height of 170 cm to 180 cm = 14 inches) and 10"-12" fit juniors (height of 120 cm to 130 cm = 11 inches).
Your first question when it comes to choosing the right ice skates needs to be: How often am I going to use my ice skates? The types and models of ice skates are designed to cater for a range of needs and the differences are mainly in their style, material, manufacturing technology and price. When it comes to size, go for the same size as your shoes. There are two widths of ice skates; D (normal) or EE (extra wide). Goalie skates have a white cap and are not suitable for everyday use, as they are specifically designed to suit the needs and movements of a goalkeeper.
