These new epic pads make this the most comfortable helmet I’ve ever worn in my career. Having been on 2 deployments and having to wear uncomfortable helmets my entire time in the military, do your head a favor and get these micro lattice pads! You won’t regret it!!!
HHV has changed the game when it comes to head protection and comfort. I’m active duty military and have tried almost every kind of helmet and padding out there but none have been as comfortable or felt as protected as the micro lattice.
I’m just starting IOC and it’s already getting hot out, breeze on my head feels like a blessing from Jesus himself every time it goes across my scalp.
We are excited to finally offer our Micro Lattice helmet pads for tactical or ballistic helmets. These pads have been in development for years and through our partnership with Carbon® and their Digital Light Synthesis ™ manufacturing process we are able to create energy absorbing complex structures in a helmet pad that could never be manufactured before.
These micro lattice pads average single digit deformation numbers when tested to 1400 fps with 9mm projectiles on our ATE ballistic helmet (click for test data). Regardless of whether they are at -60 degrees or 160 degrees they still perform the same. This can not be said for standard foam pads
The Carbon DLS™ process enables lattice structures that absorb and dissipate energy through the precise tuning of strut thickness and cell size.
This lattice structure facilitates the absorption and dissipation of energy by aligning internal damping struts against the directions of impact. With over 28,000 individual struts, the lattice is built so each strut is specially tuned at every point on the helmet. Increases or decreases in the stiffness of the lattice structure are enabled through precise adjustments to the thickness of each strut, allowing the lattice to absorb and disperse energy from various impacts.
The Carbon® Design Engine™ leverages physical simulation data to optimize each lattice structure with specific performance criteria in mind. The result is a protective, breathable, and comfortable padding that protects against ballistic, blunt, and rotational impact forces.
HHV and the Carbon DLS™ process are advancing the state-of-the-art in head protection and this is just the start of possibilities! Patents Pending.
