国内の試合でも禁止されますので、ご注意ください。

2.1.2. TRANSPARENT MASKS

1. General

The FIE in its standard practices has established the possibility for fencers to use either traditional masks made with metal mesh or transparent masks.

The transparent visor, when used, must be a minimum of 3.0 mm in thickness and must also have a separate replaceable outer covering (a “sacrificial” layer) at least 1 mm in thickness. The visor must be made of polycarbonate resin thermoplastic, and each mask and each replacement visor must be accompanied, at the time of purchase, with a statement that guarantees the authenticity and origin of the polycarbonate resin thermoplastic. The visor must correspond to the required norms of materials and manufacture as indicated in 2.1.2. of the annex to chapter 3 (Materials) of the rule book.

These transparent masks can be of two types:

— composite masks, made using traditional masks, of which a part of the front mesh has been replaced by a visor of transparent plastic;
— masks made entirely of plastic, of which the front part must be transparent.

Currently only composite masks have been accepted by the FIE.

The wearing of the transparent mask is forbidden at all weapons and in all FIE competitions (Application 1st March 2014 for sabre, already the rule for foil and épée).
