It's simple. When you get hit in the dead you don't want the force to travel into your head. All-Star has designed their new cage in a way to defelct the impacts away from the catcher's head. While using no moving parts, All-Star has been able to mount their cage in a specific manner to insure that the shockwave felt from the impact of a ball in dispersed to the mounting points as opposed to the head.
Advanced Shell Design
All-Star's new shell has been designed to increase maximum ventilation while still being able to deflect foul tips from conatacting the head. They have achieved this by submerging their vents throughout the shell. Also, their new shell is 3/4 inch longer than previous designs. This allows for a more stable, balanced platform for it to rest, while at the same time increases coverage protection.
The Back Plate
Tired of snaps popping off? All-Star's 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 on your ears while pulling the mask on and off.
All of the SystemSeven catcher's mask come with a removable liner. This liner can be machine washed with mild detergent and then air dry. While washing the liner the inside of the shell will be easy to clean as well, allowing to maintain the lifespan of your helmet for much longer.
