The Ops-Core FAST Carbon Helmet is a revolutionary lightweight helmet designed for speed and mobility while retaining the same modularity of its ballistic cousin. In fact, the Carbon Helmet is identical to the Ballistic version except for the shell material. The Carbon’s shell is constructed of lightweight carbon fiber making it ideal for recce operations, fast roping, climbing, and training. We also would recommend it for our brothers conducting Search And Rescue or maritime ops where ballistic protection is not a mission requirement.
The FAST Carbon Helmet offers a full compliment of standard accessories and innovative features. Its carbon fiber shell is extremely lightweight, yet possesses the structural integrity to comfortably support binocular-style NVD’s. The multi-impact shell is vented and introduces a new liner suspension system that offers superb ventilation with repositionable EPP impact pads and LDV closed cell comfort foam that is not affected by temperature, altitude, or moisture. The pads are coupled with a brand new adjustable “fitband” concept. This new liner has a replaceable leather front and nape with side pads that quickly detach to allow donning and doffing of COMs equipment with internal top headbands. The rear of the fitband features the “Occ-Dial,” a new tensioning dial that allows for fine-tuning the fit of the helmet to the wearer. The ever-popular Head-Loc system (don’t wear a helmet without it) is integrated into the package, providing 4x more stability than a standard MICH/ACH helmet suspension assembly.
The sides of the helmet sport proprietary FAST-ARC 4-position Rail Connectors for securing accessories like lights. These brand new ARC’s act as the hub for an entire suite of modular accessories.
Works in conjunction with locking and rotating adapters that utilize emergency break-away features for airborne operations.
Upper ARC dovetail for devices like low-profile lights, video camera, visor, mandible and up-armor side covers.
Corner ARC buckle receiver for gas and O2 mask strap kit attachments that eliminate the bulk and clutter of traditional bayonet style mounts.
Lower ARC dovetail for devices like flip-out COM headset, battery pack, goggle strap keeper, mandible and up-armor side covers.
Over-the-center side hook attachment for devices like illuminator, strobe light and battery pack.
The FAST Carbon Helmet incorporates the BISS-NVD lanyard/ elastic tensioner which eliminates night vision mount rattle and vibration by keeping your devices taut against the helmet shell.
We do not export outside the United States. PERIOD!
OPS CORE FAST CARBON HELMETS ARE CURRENTLY ON BACK-ORDER. THESE ARE SEMI-CUSTOM HELMETS AND ARE IN HIGH DEMAND BY TIER 1 SPECIAL OPERATIONS UNITS WHO ARE ALSO WAITING ON THEIR HELMETS. CURRENT LEAD TIMES ARE AVERAGING 14 WEEKS, BUT MAY BE A BIT LONGER.
IF YOU WANT TO GET A FAST CARBON HELMET, YOU MUST PLACE THE ORDER WITH US AND BE PATIENT. WE RECOMMEND NOT “WAITING UNTIL THEY COME IN BEFORE ORDERING” BECAUSE HELMETS ARE SPOKEN FOR BEFORE WE EVEN GET THEM ON THE SHELF. ALL OPS CORE DEALERS ARE IN THE SAME POSITION. WE SINCERELY APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE AND FRUSTRATION, BUT THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT.
