Helmet Pads from Hard Heads: Helmet accessories For Your Lid

Hard Head Veterans is excited to showcase their Micro Lattice Pads – helmet accessories that are an excellent and affordable upgrade for tactical or ballistic helmets.  Developed in association with Carbon, using their Digital Light Synthesis manufacturing process, the Micro Lattice assembly is a superb energy-absorbing structure.

This substantially improves the protective capabilities of a helmet by mitigating and even preventing head trauma.

The Micro Lattice Pads average single-digit deformation numbers when tested to 1400 fps with 9mm projectiles on our ATE ballistic helmet. Regardless of whether they are at -60 degrees or 160 degrees they still perform the same.

This cannot be said for standard foam pads.

HHV Micro Lattice Helmet Accessories

  • Up to a 66% decrease in ballistic transient deformation over standard foam pads
  • Up to a 21.70% decrease in blunt impact accelerations over standard foam pads
  • Lattice construction allows unrestricted airflow keeping helmets an average of 14 degrees cooler
  • Pads do not absorb sweat or water making them quick drying, positively buoyant, and easily washable.
  • Comfort lattice conforms evenly to the user’s head
  • Available in 1” and ¾” sizes

Shock Absorption

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.
