Team Wendy Launches New Helmet Liner Raising The Bar On Comfort

Tuesday, December 17th, 2019

New CloudLine™ System Available for Review at SHOT Show in January

CLEVELAND, OH (Dec. 17, 2019) – Cleveland-based Team Wendy®, a leading provider of exceptional head protection systems, announced today the immediate availability of the CloudLine™ System, a new drop-in helmet liner designed for exceptional comfort while upholding the safety standards operators have come to expect from the brand.

The liner, named CloudLine™ for its unique comfort grade, features the softest Team Wendy patented Zorbium® foam to-date, used in strategically placed hexagon-shaped comfort pads designed to prevent hot spots while maintaining protection. Furthermore, the exceptionally comfortable liner is optimized for the widest range of ground combat helmets on the market. Previous Team Wendy drop-in liners were developed around specs of the standard ACH/ECH helmets, while CloudLine is designed to fit a broader range of helmets, including those used throughout special operations communities.

“This liner is designed to feel as comfortable and effortless as a baseball cap,” said Team Wendy CEO Jose Rizo-Patron. “The CloudLine System furthers Team Wendy’s position as the market leader in drop-in helmet systems, combining the best in comfort and protection with the ability to customize fit.”

The system includes:
• Three impact liner pads (front, crown, rear)
• Four thick hexagon-shaped Cloud pads
• Seven soft comfort pads in various shapes and sizes
• Ten Velcro® brand hook disks

CloudLine retails for $109.99 and is available for purchase on TeamWendy.com and through authorized Team Wendy dealers.

CloudLine exceeds ACH blunt impact requirements (AR/PD 10-02) and is compatible with nearly all standard ground combat helmets, though some models may also require a CAM FIT™ Retention System retrofit in order for the CloudLine System to fit properly.

Attendees of the upcoming SHOT Show convention in Las Vegas will be among the first to experience the new liner. The trade show, running from Jan. 21 through Jan. 24 at the Sands Expo Center, draws more than 60,000 people each year across a myriad of communities, including military, law enforcement and SAR professionals.

Media and patrons are invited to try out the CloudLine system. Team Wendy will be located at booth 8311 on level one.

Remora™ for 3M Peltor™ Rail Adapters provides an accessory mounting platform directly overhead of the rail mount hub.

Based on the original Remora™ for our successful MARK platform, Remora™ for 3M Peltor™ quickly and easily installs to the headset mounting hub using included hardware. The mount platform provides unprecedented versatility. Users are no longer relegated to precariously attaching lights and other accessories with Velcro.

Former Parent Company of Revision Military Announces Name Change To Galvion

Tuesday, November 26th, 2019

MONTREAL, Quebec, Canada (November 26, 2019) – Following the recent announcement of the sale of its protective eyewear business to ASGARD Partners & Co., the remaining Armor, Soldier Power and Electronics, Vehicle Platform Power and Advanced Concept divisions of Revision Military will move forward under the new corporate name GALVION.

“Eyewear was the foundation on which the company was built and early on, the Revision name became synonymous with our world-class military eye protection. Today, the company’s portfolio has grown to encompass a much wider range of active and integrated systems, and strategically, it made sense for the Revision name to stay with the legacy eyewear business,” said CEO, Jonathan Blanshay. “As Galvion, we move forward with a sharpened focus, and a mission to provide solutions that enhance the overall agility and survivability of the modern military and tactical operator. We exist to empower them to meet both the immediate and future challenges they may face,” added Blanshay.

Galvion will continue to design and manufacture protective head and torso products, develop customized power supply and management solutions for both soldier and vehicle, and invest in the development of advanced concept, integrated systems based on human-centered innovation and deep end-user insights. “Our focus is on active, performance-enhancing equipment – making the soldier faster, lighter and more connected than ever before. For Galvion, it will always be about providing the absolute best solutions for operators, with the ultimate goal for protective gear to be the last line of defense, rather than the first,” said Blanshay.

“As a company, our strength has always been the caliber, passion and ingenuity of our people, and as a team, we are incredibly excited to build the Galvion name and brand while continuing to honor our history as a company,” continued Blanshay. Customers, vendors and partners should expect the same dedicated design, engineering, sales and support team at Galvion, along with an energized commitment to exceed expectation and imagination. Additional information regarding name change and conducting business with the new corporate entity will be shared with partners as available.
