Product Description

The EPIC™ Responder ballistic helmet, intended for law enforcement patrol officers, features exceptional performance and is substantially lighter than the ACH. It offers maximum adjustability and comes configured with Team Wendy’s CAM FIT™ H-back retention, 8-pad Zorbium® liner system and front cover plate for face shield alignment.

The EPIC™ ballistic helmet line for law enforcement operators is a result of the innovative synergies between Avon Protection, Team Wendy, and Ceradyne. The series features lightweight high-performance material paired with Team Wendy® retention and liner systems for maximum comfort.

Designed to provide the ultimate in head protection against ballistic threats in addition to mitigating head trauma from blunt impacts, all EPIC™ helmets feature Ceradyne seamless ballistic shell technology.
