FX Fiberglass helmets with TrakLite deliver a critical advantage to firefighters.
With an integral LED lighting system that’s safe, smoothly balanced, snag-proof, and always ready to light your way.
Helmet lighting has never been more convenient or better suited to so many situations.
- Designed to withstand frequent exposure to chemicals and hydrocarbons
- Low center of gravity provides a balanced and stable fit
- Sure-Lock ratchet headband adjusts with a quick turn of the knob.
- Additional adjustment points permit custom fit
- Interfaces well with SCBA
- Convenient TrakLite™ lighting system is smoothly integrated into the structure of the helmet
- 8 LEDs provides smooth, even light over a wide area for safer navigation and other operations
The Bullard TrakLite™ LED Helmet Lighting System is smoothly integrated into the structure of the helmet to provide safe, dependable, thoroughly functional lighting for a wide range of daily applications. The TrakLite features eight bright, durable dome-style LEDs protected behind a heat-resistant glass, and designed to cast a smooth, evenly-distributed 38 lumens of white light over a very wide area. No blinding hot spots, dark circles, or sharp cut-off—just the diffused area lighting you need to safely navigate in dark areas, indoors or out. With its tough, lightweight, waterproof, battery pack mounted beneath the rear brim of the helmet, TrakLite provides a safe, reliable source of light that’s snag-proof, perfectly balanced, and always available.
Simple, efficient, so easy to use.
Even with a thickly gloved hand, this system is a snap to operate. Just a flick of the single rotary switch turns on both the front LEDs and the rear buddy indicator light. The energy efficient TrakLite is conveniently powered by four standard AAA alkaline batteries. Each set of inexpensive, disposable batteries provides at least six hours of continuous runtime, to a minimum 50% brightness. Batteries can be quickly and easily replaced in the field with just a Phillips head screwdriver.
Engineered for reliable performance—with safety first.
The weight of TrakLite is perfectly centered from side-to-side, and distributed between the front and rear of the helmet to offer a more balanced lighting solution. With no protruding attachments, external clips, brackets, or wires, Bullard TrakLite reduces the likelihood of weight imbalance, or becoming snagged on obstructions or gear. When properly closed its virtually unbreakable Ultrem battery pack, lighting unit, and all connections are a completely waterproof, chemical-resistant sealed system, rated for use in volatile environments and hazmat situations. You can count on your Bullard TrakLite-equipped helmet to provide increased safety and additional utility over most traditional helmet-mounted lighting. Plus it’s an excellent compliment to a more highly focused smoke-cutting hand-held fire flashlight or lantern.

Quick, Easy Sizing
Bullard's Sure-Lock ratched headband adjusts to the wearer's head with a quick turn of the knob. Additional adjustment points permit custom fit, personalized balance and interface with the SCBA.
Tough and Durable Protection
The outer shell of the FX is made of fiberglass and is more resistant to chemical attack and more stable at extreme temperatures than those made of thermoplastic. The FX model has the color molded through the shell.
Bullard helmets are designed from the start to make maintenance simple and cost effective. For example, the browpad can easily be removed and cleaned. Competitive helmets have the brownpad sewn into the headband making for awkward cleaning and very expensive replacement.
FX helmets feature 3M Scotchlite striping which retains reflectivity to 500 degrees F (260 degrees C). That makes Scotchlite the toughest material available for helmet markings. FX helmets also feature the unique R330 optically-correct faceshield. The R330 eliminates distortion and reduces eye stress and fatigue.
