 Our company’s research department is proud to employ experts
 from various fields thus creating an extensive database  of
 knowledge and competencies at our disposal. From the research and  1  • Through the use of                  process, 100% of the material of
 application of new materials to cutting-edge technology – everything is       the helmet shell is used in the absorption of ballistic energy, after
 geared toward improving the protective properties of our helmets. This      the shot channel has been cracked open.  THE FULL BALLISTIC EFFICIENCY
 will always remain our first and foremost priority.  • Trauma is reduced by 30%
          • Protected area of the head is increased by 14%.                             Advantages of new boltless helmet:
                                                                                        • no weak points on a helmet
          • Helmets are able to resist more shots                                       • Protected area of the head is increased
          • The minimum distance between shots is reduced by 30%
                                                                                        • no possibility of secondary fragmentation
                                                                                        • no added weight
                                                                                        • due to the better fixation of the helmet on the head
        2  In the conventional process, only 50% of the material of the helmet shell is      by attaching the belt 60 mm bellow the helmet
          used for the ballistic energy absorption, after the shot channel has             balance point
          been cracked open.                                                            • the force on the chin by the belt is reduced
