OBO CK Carbon Helmet From £375.00
Carbon Helmet is the strongest and highest protection in the OBO range but lighter than the FG for peace of mind.
Made from specially formulated flexible resins and gel coat for maximum protection and durability. There are many features that make this helmet a popular choice for goal keepers. The angular shaping provides strength and ball deflection while closed cell polyethylene foam lines the helmet for a soft comfortable fit. It comes with a high carbon steel wire cage which enhances visibility using large eye holes, a fully adjustable five point back plate, and it's very own carry bag.
A goalkeeping helmet should fit snug to prevent any shifting and maximize protection. Make sure the chinstrap can be adjusted so it gently makes contact with the chin when fastened.
You should always look for equipment that feels comfortable. Although most helmets are lined with a protective foam, some helmets will feel better than others. Try on different brands of helmets for fit and comfort.
With your helmet opened to it’s largest setting gradually begin to downsize the helmet until a comfortably snug fit is achieved. The helmet should rest on the head so that the rim is one finger width above the eyebrow and making contact with the top of your head.

I thought long and hard about what helmet to get when my old one needed replacing; funds are somewhat limited. But having looked around, and sought advice from various sources, ultimately I thought this IS about protecting my head - I need to feel safe and confident in my kit, so I opted for this and am so glad I did. It fits beautifully, there's the added element of it covering the throat area, too. The chin cup helps to aid the comfort of the fit, while not impeding my ability to shout at my defenders! I also have the sun blinders, which I wore for the first time the night before writing this review - remarkably effective. Sometimes, there's no harm in shopping around for a bargain, and there's not always a lot of difference in quality/performance of products except for the price tag. I think with helmets, you can't afford to go too cheap, and while it IS pricey compared to many others, I think you do get what you pay for; I have total confidence and peace of mind with this helmet, and am very glad I bought it.

At last Total Hockey have this helmet I love the back colour and the protection levels are as high as normal with OBO.
Nice video on their website showing the testing they do to helments. This is why I won't skimp on price for my HEAD!!
