Rega II     the professional Icaro helmet developed for the Swiss "Rega" rescue service.
Important informations

We developed the Rega helmet on commission from the Swiss "Rega" rescue service.
It is used by the helicopter pilots and the doctors who have to rescue injured people. The doctors are inside the helicopter or on the outside winch. So they never receive a horizontal air flow directly from the front, but only from above.
As the visor is very short, it is not suitable for pilots flying paramotors or open microlights. In such craft, the airflow reaching the pilot causes uncomfortable turbulence between the visor and the eyes. Therefore we recommend that this helmet should be used only by pilots flying in an enclosed cockpit.

We developed the helmet with the technical support of Mr. Robert Grob. He was responsable for Peltor in Switzerland and he is still an expert for the application of the Peltor professional electronics systems used with the helmets by the Swiss Rescue service.

Mr. Grob is in charge of all global sales to the professional business.

The red Rega logo is applied only to the helmet we sell to the Swiss Rescue service.

Sizes

  • Small (cm 56)
  • Medium (cm 58)
  • Large (cm 60)

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

This helmet has a luxury internal padding that can be replaced by larger or smaller padding pieces, thus varying the helmet size.

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.
