1. General :

This mask is the result of collaboration between DYE athletes and research and development department of the company. Indeed, the pros were asked to develop a lightweight mask: until now, it is the lightest mask on the market.  It weighs 290 g. It also had a mask equipped with a screen offering a panoramic view: I4 offers the broader viewing angle on the market.

 

2. Size :

The i4 is certainly one of the smaller masks on the market. It covers the basics. For sensitive players, please note that your forehead and your lower jaw will be exposed to impacts.

One last detail is important: eyeglass wearers can play with this mask while retaining their horses. Be aware that too wide frames can rub against the inside of your screen.

 

 

3. Dissamblement :

The disassembly of the screen is fast; it only takes 15 seconds to change it!

To disassemble the screen, you simply press the 2 clips placed on either side of the mask and push forward and inward clips. Once detached, the screen can easily get out by a slight pressure on its inner face.

What is a thermal mask? It is a mask with a separate double glazed foam screen. This will prevent, in most situations, fogging on your screen.

CAUTION: To wash a screen generally NEVER use glass or window washing products or water. A good microfiber will give you complete satisfaction.
