Testing and Warranty

ATE® BALLISTIC Helmet Testing

A helmet is worthless if it doesn't do what it's supposed to do so we will let our data speak for itself. We use NTS which is a certified NIJ 3rd party lab to conduct all of our testing. This includes everything from wet, dry, blunt, ballistic, impact, BTD/BTP, compression, V/50, and more. This is just a small sample of the data, but click here for more in depth data! 






We take quality control and the safety of our customers extremely seriously. We offer our warranty on ballistic helmet(s) against any defect in materials or workmanship. This means you should be inspecting your helmet and any gear you rely on when you receive it. Notice something wrong, send it back and we will refund or replace it. However we do not cover normal wear and tear, misuse, abuse, or improper storage.

  • Risk-Free Guarantee, If you don't like the helmet we will refund you the full amount and provide you with a return shipping label. 
  • Ballistic Shell – up to ten (10) years from date of delivery
  • Liner, retention, rail and shroud system(s) – up to one (1) year from date of delivery


We know the risks involved in your chosen profession, if one of our helmets saved your life we would like to hear about it. We would also like the helmet back for analysis, along with all the information you can provide. We will replace your damaged helmet with a new one, along with sending the original back to you as well.
