In 1950, the production of a new series of leather helmets, SHL-50 begins. Helmets were produced in the usual, winter and summer versions. The only difference was that the usual helmets had an inner covering made of cloth, the winter helmets had a lining on the dog's fur, and the summer helmets finally got a mesh top. The design of the leather helmet remained almost unchanged and very much like German helmets, with the difference that the headphones were now made of rubber, almost like American helmets of the Second World War. Judging by the type of fur and electrical connectors, this is an early type of helmet.
