Helmets

Helmets made with Dyneema® are typically up to 25% lighter than competitive materials and offer protection against both legacy and emerging threats.

Why choose Dyneema®?

Dyneema® UD offers a lightweight solution for ballistic helmet applications – with weight reductions up to 25% compared to competitive materials.  

In a report studying the effect of weight on U.S. troops, the Center for a New American Security found that heavy loads affect situational awareness and decrease soldier performance by reducing cognitive and tactical performance and mobility. However, helmets made with Dyneema® offer protection without compromising on effectiveness by lowering the overall load of the wearer.
