Team Wendy’s REVOLVE™ Helmet Liner is a 3-piece impact mitigating system designed to be a replacement liner for most ballistic shells.
It utilizes an array of engineered polymer structures along with a set of moisture wicking comfort pads to provide maximum protection, comfort, and stability.
The polymer structures were born out of an Army Natick Soldier RD&E Center program; with both the cylindrical geometry and material composition of the structures being optimized for headborne impact protection. The structures have been designed to act as the optimal crumple zone during impact – at the same time they provide an extremely stable, secure, and comfortable interface with your ballistic helmet shell. They are constructed from a thermoplastic urethane (TPU) material that exhibits excellent toughness, abrasion and wear resistance, and microbial resistance. This design also provides greatly improved airflow and ventilation beneath the helmet to minimize thermal burden.
The system’s comfort pads use a field-proven construction with internal zorbium foam sealed in a water-tight barrier, and encased with milspec outer wicking fabric. The system installs into standard ballistic helmets with hook and loop attachment (Velcro® coins not included). REVOLVE™ is protected by US Patent D683079 and other Patents Pending.
Testing based on use of the system in standard ACH shells, may vary by shell type and manufacturer.
- REVOLVE™ meets and exceeds the latest ACH blunt impact requirements (AR/PD 10-02 Rev A, 08 May 2012).
- Multiple impacts across all temperatures (14°F to 130°F) result in average head acceleration under 100G @ 10ft/sec, and under 180G @ 14ft/sec
*The performance capabilities of this system REQUIRE a minimum 1/2″ shell standoff from the head. While this is the common minimum standoff recommended for both blunt impact and ballistic protection in most ballistic helmets, some wearers at the upper end of a sizing range may still find that REVOLVE™ requires a larger shell size.
**Although Team Wendy's REVOLVE™ Combat Helmet Liner System exceeds blunt impact protection requirements of the Advanced Combat Helmet (AR/PD 10-02), the system is not currently authorized through first article testing for use in U.S. Military Advanced Combat Helmets or U.S. Marine Lightweight Helmets.
