Icaro - SOLAR X  - ICE Model
"NEW July 2015" Solar Impulse Range

Solar Impulse's first Round-the-World Solar Flight using our Icaro Helmets.

Solar Impulse is the only airplane of perpetual endurance, able to fly day and night on solar power,
without a drop of fuel. Icaro is proud to contribute to this incredible mission.
The two famous pilots Bertrand Piccard and Andre Borschberg are wearing our helmets with our
ICE headsets.
In honor of this exploit we call this new helmet Solar X


Piccard and Borschberg have chosen our helmets because they are light, strong, modern,
reliable and have EN 966 certification.
The electronic ICE headsets have been developed expressly for this mission.



follow this unique event on the official Solarimpulse website.


The helmet Solar X has the same shape as the Nerv helmet, expressly modified for the
paramotor pilots and available in 4 Fresh Colours: Carbon Optic, Orange, Green, White.

The Design
Designed by Ignazio Bernardi, with the technical consultancy from the greatest
Italian helmet developer the Solar X has a very modern look.

Reduced Width of the HelmetThe advantage of a reduced width of the helmet are evident: less weight and
less resistance to the air.
The disadvantage: if there is only one dimension of the shell like in this helmet,
the maximum size is XL (61 cm of head circumference)


   












Polycarbonate Shell
The 3mm thickness polycarbonate shell has the advantage to be very light but still very strong.

 
Polystyrene reinforced
The polystyrene is reinforced with one more layer of polycarbonate to achieve the
hard penetration test of the E.N. 966 certification.
Between the shell and the polystyrene there are 2 channels with their wholes for the air flow.



Visor Options
2 types: Transparent, Brown Tint
2 sizes: Long or Short, (We recommend theLong Visor for Comms Microphones
in a non enclosed cockpit enviroment)


Airflow Inside the Helmet
You can open or close the entrance of the air into the helmet just with
one hand and while you are flying



Sizes:
The are 3 variable, available sizes with a wheel regulator for a perfect fit
of the head circumference from 53cm to 61cm.

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.
  • Small     (53-54-55-56 cm)
  • Medium (57-58-59 cm)
  • Large     (60-61 cm)




Interchangeable Internal Padding
3 internal paddings are adapted to the 3 sizes determinated by the wheel
regulator situated in the back of the helmet.
They can be replaced by larger or smaller padding pieces included the wheel regulator,
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, 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
For the first time we don't use the normal rubber to cover the edge of the shell
We found the method to stich a strip of fabric around all the helmet
The result is just unique and beautiful
