FAST-Future Assault Shell Technology


BallisticClub Fast Helmets Collection

 Pro SetUp  
  • The FAST style helmet was designed for professionals who expect the most from their equipment. Just like fine-tuning the suspension on a race car or sighting in a fire-arm, this helmet must be set up properly before use to function correctly. If you do not follow these instructions, your helmet will suck!

 Step1:Verify Your Helmet is the Correct Size  
  • Put the helmet on. If the band around your head (headband) is tight, return the helmet for a larger size.
  • Turn the dial on the back of the headband clockwise to tighten it around your head. If you cannot tighten it enough to comfortably secure the helmet, return the helmet for a smaller size.


 Step2:Adjust the Top Pads 
  • Turn the dial to loosen the headband so that all of the helmet weight is resting on top of your head. It is shipped with the smallest pads installed to let it sit in the lowest position on your head.
  • With the headband loose, check how high / low the helmet is sitting. The forehead pad should be above and not resting on the bony ridge of your eyebrows. There should be enough room around your ears for COMs/hearing protection.
  • If the helmet sits too low on your head, remove the 1/2" Top Pads (Pre-installed) and install the 3/4" top pads from the accessory bag.
  • If the helmet sits at an uncomfortable angle, adjust the top pads, or use a combination of 1/2" and 3/4" top pads until it sits correctly.

 Step3:Adjust the Rear Pads  
  • Remove the 1/2" pad in the back of the helmet and install the 3/4" pad from the accessory bag in the same location. Put the helmet on.
  • If you feel uncomfortable pressure on your forehead, take the 3/4" pad out and put it in the 1/2" pad.
  • If it feels the same as with 1/2" pad ( can not notice the difference) then keep the 3/4" installed. This will make the helmet more stable and comfortable.

 Step4:Adjust Headband Height  
  • Put the helmet on and turn the dial to tighten the headband until it feels secure. Lock up at the sky.
  • If the dial digs into your neck, it is too low. You can adjust the height of the dial by sliding the interior tabs that attach it to the inside of the snell up and down.
  • The helmet was shipped with the back screws that hold these tabs loose enough for you to perform this adjustment.
  • Set the dial at the height that is most comfortable for you.

 Step5:Adjust Pre-Load The Headband  
  • You can set the shape of the headband to match the shape of your head for long-term comfort.
  • Push or pull the interior tabs(used for height adjustment in step 4)to adjust the headband tension from around to a more oval shape.
  • Hold each interior tab with your hand in the location that sets the headband tension in the optimal shape and then tighten the back screws to lock the tabs in place.

 Step6:Tighten Back Screws  
  • Tighten the back screws to lock the interior headband tabs, chinstrap, and side rails permanently in place.
  • If you don't do this, all of the adjustments you just made will slip and the helmet will likely come apart.

 Step7:Install Side Pads  
  • Install the side pads onto the Velcro patches on the inside of the helmet. These pads make the helmet more stable and increase protection from side impacts.
  • If they feel tight or uncomfortable, Try to relocate them into a position that feels good.





 Chinstrap Operation  
  • Put the helmet on and turn the dial to tighten the headband until it is comfortably snug.
  • Attach the buckle at your chin to secure the chinstrap.
  • With both hands, pull the two rear Head-Loc sliders on the lower webbing straps toward your chin until snug. (The technique works best if you only hold the plastic sliders and don't touch the webbing.)
  • With both hands, pull the two front Head-Loc sliders on the webbing straps that come from the front temples of the helmet toward your chin until snug.


  • This helmet provides LIMITED protection for the head and does not offer any protection against neck, spinal, or certain types of brain injuries including those caused by rotational forces. Some hazards can exceed this helmet's ability to provide protection and could cause severe head, brain, or spinal injuries including paralysis or death.
  • Remember: the higher the impact velocity, the greater the chance of injury/death. Common sense is the best defense.
  • Inspect the helmet before each use. Make sure the shell, inner pads, plastic hardware, stitching, chinstrap, and fit system components are not damaged, cracked, loose, or showing signs of excessive wear. Do not remove or alter the front, top, or back impact pads. Do not apply paint, solvents, or like products as they could degrade Helmet integrity and resulting performance. Replace your helmet if it is subjected to a significant impact since the shell and/or liner pads could be damaged without showing any obvious signs of a problem.
  • These instructions must be followed by all persons using our maintaining this helmet in order for it to perform as designed. Failure to do so could result in equipment malfunction, serious injury, or death.
