Internal Padding Choices

Air Padding
Our latest mask padding range. It combines the comfort of our standard padding with the breathability of our ice padding. It is fully removable and washable, made from a soft touch 3D spacer fabric for maximum airflow

Ice Padding
Made from an anti-microbial material with moisture management to keep you fresh. The integrated memory foam padding reacts to your body heat to form to your head for maximum comfort. The design provides greatly increased airflow, improved hearing, lower temperatures, better padding and comfort.

Standard Padding
Ships with the mask unless you upgrade. Adjustable, removable and washable. This chin and face padding dampens impact from heavy hits and is made from an anti-microbial material with moisture management to keep you fresh.


Why do top fencers think that X-Change masks are the best in the world? The X-Change system allows all the fabric parts to be completely removed from the stainless-steel shell and washed. This keeps your mask clean and fresh. By utilising the lightest, strongest materials and removing unnecessary metal it is much lighter than standard masks making it more comfortable. The removal of excess padding unnecessary parts of the bib means that airflow through the mask has been increased by up to 75% compared to some competitors’ masks. For the ultimate in cooling please see the ice® padding upgrade. The bib can be slid out of the mask which means not only can you wash it monthly or replace it every few seasons. Most masks use a metal strip around the back mesh to save on cost, but Leon Paul masks use a split plastic tube in addition. This is to stop the blade whipping over the edge of the mask and causing painful hits to the back of the head, the tube absorbs the force of the blade and prevents this whip over.


Maintenence of the product
It’s important that as the masks gets older that the bib is removed and washed to ensure that when you do need to replace it that it is not locked in place.
