Nerv light & Oceano


Nerv

A very light helmet for a number of sports: from 355 to 390 grams.

Nerv light, for Hike & Fly and land sports.
Standard and exclusive edition with our new patented ESR (Elastic size regulator) for perfect regulation from size S (56 cm) to L (61 cm)

Oceano, for water sports.
Completely waterproof and buoyant.

A single certification for both: EN 1385 (Helmets for canoeing and white water sports)

Please note that a lightweight helmet – just 355 to 390 grams – will never pass the demanding EN 966 certification.
Nevertheless the helmet provides excellent head protection.

Year 2017

Icaro starts selling Ski & Snowboard helmets


Laminar

For over thirty years, Icaro 2000 has held a leadership position worldwide for the production of flight helmets (hang gliding, paragliding, ultralight aircraft).

The reasons for this continuing success can be found in the company's commitment to research and development, finding new ways of meeting the requirements of sports pilots, in addition to its sleek and attractive "Italian Design”.

All our flight helmets have always received European EN966 certification.

Icaro 2000 is now extending its range of operations. From this year we are launching products for areas different to sports flying. This gives people who practice other sports (skiing, biking, skydiving, water sports) the chance to benefit from Icaro 2000's hallmarks of lightness, safety and appealing design that have always set our helmets apart from the rest.

Subject: We made it!

Dear Gianni,
We succeeded in flying around the world using only the power available from the sun. An historic achievement for aviation and energy, showing the world what is possible and opening their minds and hearts to a better future.

I wanted to thank you for your tremendous support in creating a custom pilot helmet capable of standing up to the extreme demands of life inside the Solar Impulse cockpit. Your commitment to the project and to being here in person time and again to be sure that the pilots got the best and most comfortable fit possible was remarkable and beyond appreciated.

I truly enjoyed working with you and I hope that we can find projects to collaborate on in the future together.

Thank you,
Michael

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.

They 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.
The helmets will be available for all our sport pilots at the end of March.

We will call them "SOLAR X"
