Default My New Helmet

Icaro 2000 is an Italian Helmet manufacturer and big on Gliders, LSA's UL's, Parachute and even Snow Skying. All of their helmets pass a std.certification process as part of their manufacturing efforts.

Their new helmet is the ICARO 2000 NERV. It comes in plain CF or different colors. You can add a choice of 5 different visor colors when you order. Fits well, cool and light feel while wearing. You can order both the helmet and your visor on line directly from them for about $200.00 US (Euros 170) .

Helmet sizes are in cm's so make sure you convert those Inches properly when you order. I have a 24 Inch circumference and using a large helmet.

For Comm I am using very confortable the Clarity Aloft which give me the option to use my headset with or w/out my helmet and also eliminating the need carry additional headsets or to order a different brand helmet w an incorporated headset installed which equals to more $$$$$$$$

If in need to talk/write to someone in Icaros, make sure you communicate w Carolina. She is the best English speaking person there and will take good care of you.

For more info on the helmets; Google Icaro 2000 Helmets. Once in their web site choose: Products - Helmets -Free flight and scroll down to the NERV helmet option.

Enjoy!

Looks a lot like a Bolle ski helmet with less ventilation. Always wondered if my POC ski helmet would be just as good as something like this. Only use it one week a year now!

This looks best vs. birds and added bonus, original "Star Wars"-esque. "Hits Away!"

Have to get this one just to look like "Rocketeer":
