Enforce Tac 23 – Trivium Head Protection System by Hexonia

German company Hexonia was recently purchased by Norway-based NFM. They displayed quite a few technologies from both companies but what caught my eye was the new Trivium Head Protection System which was recently adopted by the German Bundeswehr’s Kommando Spezialkräfte (KSK). While Trivium is new, it finds its roots in the IdZ (Infanterist der Zukunft) helmet and is designed and manufactured in Germany.

The Trivium helmet system for the KSK comes in a hard case and includes nearly 20 components.

Ballistically the base helmet meets VPAM 3 25mm and boasts a V50 around 750 mps and will sustain 9mm on top with no deformation. The rifle appliqué dampens 7.63×39 mild steel core residual energy to 10 jule. Additionally, there are removable ballistic ear shields which are 50% lighter than precious versions and allow use of the side rails when attached.

The system includes two visors and a mandible.

The system includes both a ballistic helmet as well as a carbon bump helmet. Both helmets meet the EC mountaineering standard. The ballistic version is offered in Full Cut, Half Cut, High Cut and Super High Cut variants.

The suspension will look very familiar.

    Regarding rifle-rated head protection, you will probably be a vegetable or living with a severe chronic disability for the rest of your life, but you will be alive.

      Not exactly true when you have handgun rated combat helmet saves against rifle rounds. Your youtbue influencer who tested a helmet without a headfrom and pads thinking it’s a legit BFD test is like car crash testing without seatbelts and airbags…

    Finally a helmet company that has ballistic ear panels. What is the point of making different versions of low v high cut helmets, just have them with removable ballistic ear panels. Everyone can have a high cut when needed and add the ear panels when the situation calls for it. Hopefully PEO Soldier takes a page from this playbook in their IHPS re-boot….but that would make too much sense.
