We are very proud to have contributed to this incredible mission.
So we called the helmet “SOLAR X” in honor of this unique adventure.
Shell made of strong polycarbonate
Between the shell and the polystyrene there are 2 channels with their wholes for the air flow
Airflow inside the helmet
It is made of polycarbonate with anti-scratch and anti-fog treatment.2 types are available:
- Short, tranparent and tinted brown
- Long, tranparent, tinted brown and mirror
Interchangeable internal padding
You just choose your own size of ICARO tailored inner helmet lining for a safe, perfectly comfortable head fit….
It can be changed in moments in case a different size is needed.
If the helmet is not a perfect fit, we send a new padding free of charge, independently from where you bought the helmet.
The important advantage: you can easily remove the padding and replace it with a new one or just wash it.
Covering shell edge
We found the method to stich a strip of fabric around all the helmet
The result is just unique and beautiful
Steel wire sidepieces
We are the only usig this unique solution.
Micrometric chin strap
Ear defenders or electronic headsets
We use the best ear defenders on the market and we mount them perfectly onto the helmet.The advantages of wearing a headset fixed to the helmet
- the ear cups can be flipped upwards quickly and easily
- on the ground you can thus hear normally
- in the air you can ventilate your ears whenever you like
We can apply the electronic apparatus for any type of radio equipment, including the professional headsets used by the Swiss aerial rescue service with our Rega helmet. For further information, go to our headsets page.
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.
Certification E.N. 966
The Solar X is certified only with attached ear defenders or electronic headsets.
All our helmets are designed especially for free flight and micro light pilots, in accordance with the European standards (EN 966).
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.
