Shell made of strong fiber glass layers
Attention: the mirror visor is very delicate.
Icaro 2000 is a company committed to ongoing product research and development. For this reason, following requests by many pilots and dealers for a full-face Microlight helmet with built-in headsets, we opted for a different solution: the first helmet with a rollbar, offering excellent vision and a high level of safety.
This helmet, with its exciting, high-tech design, is hallmarked by its most distinctive feature, the rollbar, which guarantees protection for the lower part of the face without reducing field of vision.
The helmet is built using highly reliable materials and modern components. In particular, the rollbar, in high-performance aluminium, is highlighted by its titanium-colour anodized finish, which enhances the unit’s visual appearance.
In flight, the sensation provided by the rollbar is that of a full-face helmet, but with improved vision and with an excellent protection against the chin.
Sizes and interchangeable internal padding
The size number therefore corresponds to the head circumference in centimetres.
There are 5 internal padding for the sizes:
- 56 (Small)
- 58 (Medium)
- 60 (Large)
- 62 (X Large)
- 64 (XX Large)
Steel wire sidepieces with luxury chin strap
The system is a registered model.
We are the only usig this unique solution.The strap is millimeter adjustable
Ear defenders or electronic headsets
We can apply the electronic apparatus for any type of radio equipment, including the professional headsets used by the Solar Impulse 2 and the Swiss aerial rescue service with our Rega helmet.
For further information, go to our electronic headsets page.If customers or dealers already have their own headset and they wish to use them with a new helmet, we suggest to send us the headset so that we can fit it perfectly to the helmet.
If you have any doubt about the application of the headset, please send us a mail to email@example.comFor safety reasons, we do not sell the helmet to pilots who wish to use a conventional arching headset worn under the helmet.
Your head would no longer be well protected! See our page about headsets.
The advantages of headsets fixed to the helmet
- the ear cups can be flipped upwards or aside quickly and easily
- on the ground you can thus hear normally
- in the air you can ventilate your ears whenever you like
Certification E.N. 966
Look at the complete Certification.The certification is the same for both helmets Rollbar and Scarab and expired in September 2018.
The new one is in progress.
Our helmets were designed and built specifically to be as light as possible. However they optimize safety for hang glider, paraglider and micro light pilots, as shown by the information above.For more information about the E.N. 966 test please read our page About safety.Look also at our very interesting video we made during the EN 966 test of the helmet Rega.
- Helmet fiber glass: grams 900 +/- grams 50 including the visors
- Ear defendeers Peltor Op II. grams 230 just to filter out engine noise
- Electronic Headsets with cable: grams 390
The weight of a fiber glass helmet has a tolerance of +/- 50 grams due to the glue applied and to the thickness of the fiber glass layers.
