The American Classic fire helmet combines the looks of a traditional helmet with the lighter weight and high performance protection of its modern-style counterparts.
TherMax technology keeps heads cooler
The American Classic is lightweight, but tough. It employs TherMax composite technology. This technology is analogous to the heat reflecting tiles NASA uses on the space shuttle. Like those tiles, it reflects heat without significantly adding weight. The American Classic weighs just a few ounces more than most of it's non-traditional, modern-style cousins. Now you don't have to sacrifice comfort for style.
Color molded into shell
Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) technology provides color pigmentation throughout the shell for lasting good looks.
Unique size and fit adjustment options
A complete system of adjustments provides maximum comfort and a custom fit. The patented Center of Gravity adjustment system allows you to adjust the center of gravity to your preference and keeps it there. The ratcheting headband easily adjusts from size 5 1/2 to 9 1/2 and there are three positions for height adjustment. The American Classic's headband is cushioned with foam and covered with Nomex for additional comfort. With the American Classic, you're fighting the fire, not your helmet.

Fire helmets are essential to firefighter safety. Improper fit, whether too loose or too tight, can cause fatigue, discomfort and even serious injury. Lion Helmets’ 9 point adjustment system provides optimum comfort and a customized fit. Straight out of the box, Lion Helmets will fit most fire fighters with a simple ratchet adjustment (accommodates sizes 5.5 to 9.5). Lion's patented Center of Gravity™ adjustment system allows firefighters to adjust the Center of Gravity™ to their preferred balance and keeps it there. You can't be at every department at all times, therefore Lion has developed a fit and adjustment video so firefighters can make the proper adjustments to their helmets. Check out the video below, taking fire fighters step-by-step through the process of adjusting the height and headband circumference of Lion Helmets™.
