R6 Challenger



Lightweight Multi-Purpose Helmet

The R6 Challenger is the leader in Pacific’s flagship R6 rescue helmet series. As a truly multi-purpose helmet, the Challenger is fully certified to the widest range of rescue helmet standards of any helmet in the world; AS/NZS 1801:1997 Type 3, EN 16471:2014, EN 16473:2014, and NFPA 1951:2020.

Complementing its modern compact design, user comfort, and superior protection, the Challenger offers compatibility with a wide range of accessories and additional protective equipment. For face protection, the Challenger can accommodate either clip on or fixed external face shields (clear polycarbonate or mesh options), internal eye protection, and goggle straps or clips to support a range of safety goggles. Additional compatibilities include brackets to support earmuffs, an interchangeable range of neck protectors, multiple torch/lamp attachment options, picatinny rails, and boom microphone and speaker compatibility.

The Challenger provides the user with the highest level of rescue/wildland fire protection currently available in the world today. It is the multipurpose helmet of choice for many rescue and military services across the globe.

Please note: the R6 Challenger was previously called the R6C.
