TNVC is hosting MTEK, makers of the Flux helmet.  This NIJ IIIA features an undercut rear lip.  Additionally, that’s an M-LOK compatible rail which also accepts O2 masks.  The helmet is boltless, meaning no bolts protrude through the .186″ shell.  Yep, that’s the thickness of a carbon fiber shell, but it’s ballistic.  It also weighs just 2.2 lbs.  

There are a whole slew of innovations surrounding this helmet so check their site out.
