Designed by Ignazio Bernardi, with the technical consultancy from the greatest Italian helmet developer.
Shell made of strong polycarbonate
The 3 mm thickness polycarbonate shell has the advantage to be very light but still very strong.
The Visor (Optional)
3 colors: transparent, orange, grey
- Small (cm 56)
- Medium (cm 58)
- Large (cm 60)
- Extralarge XL (cm 62)
- XXL (cm 64)
The size of a helmet is always described by the inner circumference of the internal padding.
The size number therefore corresponds to the head circumference in centimetres.
Interchangeable internal padding
4 internal paddings are adapted to the 4 sizes determinated by the wheel regulator situated in the back of the helmet. They can be replaced by larger or smaller padding pieces, thus varying the helmet size.
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, ICARO will send you 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.
most of our dealers buy this helmet with fixed sizes where you can't remove the internal padding.
Ear defenders or the electronic headsets
We use only the finest Peltor-brand headsets, and we mount them perfectly onto the helmet.
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.
Once the headsets are fixed with our special screws onto the helmet and the polystirene is perfectly positioned in to the shell, it's nearly impossible to take it out again. It becomes also difficult to change the headset.
For this reason we recommend to decide at order time the appropriate headset.
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. We will make up for not sending the noise-reduction headset (included in the price) by totally reimbursing the costs entailed in the despatch of your headset to our adress.
If you have any doubt about the application of the headset, please send us a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
For 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 wearing a headset 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
The helmet is $332 with Pelter noise protection.
It is $670 with Loescher noise cancelling ear phones and radio connection.
+$78 for a UV protective visor.

Certification E.N. 966
The TZ model has been tested by the italian laboratory CSI a company authorized by the Italian Ministry of Transport and recognized by the German TUV.
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.
