CLEVELAND – An unsurpassed combination of protection and comfort. That is how customers describe our EPIC Air Helmet Liner System. The original EPIC Air was introduced to the market in 2011 as a helmet padding/liner system that could be installed in common ground combat helmets, designed to provide a high level of comfort and breathability while maintaining compatibility with communication headsets. The new EPIC Air retains many of the original design elements including its Zorbium® foam liner exceeding current ACH blunt impact protection requirements, with improvements that provide better fit, comfort, stability, and even further optimized air ventilation patterns to the end user.

The EPIC Air Helmet Liner System is available through and authorized Team Wendy distributors.

    Rampart Range Day – MTEK Weapon Systems

    Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

    MTEK Weapon Systems has been working on helmet technology for a little over two years but now they’ve cracked the code on a one-piece undercut helmet.  Their Future Lightweight UnderCut System or FLUX is available in a vented and nonvented carbon bump as well as a ballistic helmet.

    This ballistic model’s shell 1.1 lbs with a full helmet is about 1.9 lbs with full suspension, shroud and rails. In addition to featuring an undercut back, it is less than .25″ thick yet meets the ACH 17 grain v50 standard. Additionally, the shell has met NIJ level IIIA in testing but has not yet been certified while MTEK awaits final production suspension parts from the vendor.  You may notice the rail retainers which are adhered to the FLUX shell. This means that no holes are drilled in the shell to mount accessories.  In addition to the MTEK rails, the helmet will comes complete with Wilcox shroud.
