EXFIL® Ballistic helmet now available from Team Wendy

CLEVELAND – Unmatched comfort. Exceptional versatility. Team Wendy protection. After 15 years of developing leading-edge products that protect against serious and potentially life-threatening injuries, Team Wendy announces the launch of the EXFIL® Ballistic—a superior ballistic helmet for law enforcement and military operators.

The EXFIL® Ballistic is the third model in the Team Wendy EXFIL® line, following two popular non-ballistic tactical bump helmets: Carbon (released in 2012) and LTP™ (lightweight tactical polymer, released in 2013).

“We’ve taken the best features of our Carbon and LTP™ bump helmets, as well as our helmet liners and retention systems for standard ballistic helmets, and brought them together into one comprehensive ballistic helmet platform,” said Team Wendy CEO Jose Rizo-Patron. “The result is a ballistic helmet that is lightweight, customizable and easy to adjust while providing exceptional protection.”

With a complete helmet system weight of 2.6 lbs. for Size 1 and 2.75 lbs. for Size 2, a new boltless CAM FIT™ retention with Boa® closure system for optimized stability and fit, cam-lock sliders for positive locking adjustment, and a new Zorbium® impact liner with 2 full sets of comfort pads, the EXFIL® Ballistic is designed to be comfortable during extended use by military and law enforcement operators.

The EXFIL Ballistic is now available through and authorized Team Wendy distributors.
