Important information concerning fencing masks

29.08.2014 | 15:55

In its urgent letter No. 14-14 the FIE has clarified, that from September 1st only masks with two independent fastening devices will be allowed for competitions. The reason for this is that ma...sks are being sold that are only equipped with one single elastic restraint to keep the mask on the head. This kind of mask has to be upgraded with a second fastening device.

allstar masks are not affected. For more than 30 years all allstar masks have been equipped with two independent fastening devices, the tongue and an additional elastic. Therefore all allstar FIE masks still conform without any change and without any restrictions to the FIE rules.
