Gear Neat looking but not much more: the latest stuff for hockey and bowling

Clear Your Head
The X-Ray Helmet Series ($99.99), from CCM, is the dernier cri in
hockey headgear: It's see-through! The X-Ray comes in translucent
red, blue, electric green and black and is as safe as other CCM
helmets. This season it will be the official helmet of the East
Coast Hockey League. CCM, 800-524-4226; ccmsports.com.

Kegler's Kaleidoscope
Light up your lane with Ebonite's Quasar ball ($129.95), which
just for the fun of it contains red and white lights that begin
flashing upon contact with the floorboards. The Quasar blinks for
several seconds before shutting off automatically. According to
Ebonite, the replaceable lights will last for more than 40,000
games. Ebonite, 800-626-8350; ebonite.com.
