The 4-Strap Exposed Fibre Crown Helmet is a variant of the Exposed Fibre Crown Helmet in which leather or fibre reinforcing straps are added longitudinally and laterally across the crown. As with other exposed fibre crown models, the 4-Strap typically possessed a padded forehead in one of several design patterns. 4-Strap Exposed Fibre Crown Helmets were primarily sold as an entry level helmet for youth players.
