Arditi derived from the Italian verb ardire, lit “to dare”, and translates to “the daring ones” was the name of Italian elite special force units in the 1900s. These elite operators were well known for their helmets and their superior tactical equipment deployed. They were considered the most feared corps by opposing forces. Today, HighCom and XTEK are proud to introduce the Arditi Ballistic Helmet series with our revolutionary design and performance standard for the next generation of head protective systems.
The Striker Arditi Level III+ Rifle Enhanced Combat Helmet exceeds the U.S. military specifications for ballistic threats, fragmentation, and blunt impact. A true rifle rated helmet, the Striker Arditi is capable of defeating rifle special threats including 7.62 x 51mm (M80), 7.62 x 39mm (M43 MSC), 5.56 x 45mm (M193 FMJ), as well as Mil-Std frag protection beyond any protective helmet currently in theatre.
