When the 2013 edition of NFPA 1971 raised the requirements for helmet-mounted faceshields below the brim, Honeywell did not see an extra set of goggles as the answer. Firefighters should expect flip-down visors to do their job and to be fully certified to the new rigorous criteria. That’s why the Ben 2 with EZ-Flips™ visors is the only helmet with flip-down face protection dual-certified to NFPA 1971 and ANSI Z87.1 that does not require extra goggles.
Did you know that the Ben 2 helmet offers the strongest shell on the market? The Ben 2 is made of FYR-Glass - a proprietary custom-blended material found only in Morning Pride helmets. Our testing shows that FYR-Glass helmets are 39% more resistant to impact penetration than conventional fiberglass helmets and offer superior heat performance.
With a low center of gravity, the Ben 2 also rides low, resulting in better balance and significantly reduced neck strain.
Plus, the Ben 2 provides a 6-position suspension with one-piece headband and ratchet assembly that can be adjusted without disassembly.
