The Miltiades Helmet idea is out spoken and innovated 2017 at the Gym Sportello in Oulu Finland. The former Finnish Red Beret Sgt. Markku Tauriainen started to talk to workout friend Pertti Kettunen about new combat helmet idea. The idea with ´rolling parts´ was so crazy – out of the box idea – that we decided to have a test for it on the shooting rod. Heureka Pertti´s first prototype – “the bearing boiler” started to roll after a bullet hit. The test shooting was organized by gunsmith Joel Aholainen.
