Technical data (Index)

Design

Italian Design

The Rollbar Plus has been designed by Ignazio Bernardi, with the technical consultancy from the greatest Italian helmet developer.
The result is a helmet with a very modern look.

Shell

Shell made of strong fiber glass layers

Rollbar Plus, a helmet built using the same technology as in military applications, including high-modulus glass fibre and high- density polystyrol to guarantee the highest possible standards of safety.

Visiere

Double Visor

Rollbar

Rollbar and Turboskip

The Rollbar, has the function to protect the chin with a titanium-anodized aluminium tube.
Icaro 2000 is a company committed to ongoing product research and development. For this reason, following requests by many pilots and dealers for a full-face Microlight helmet with built-in headsets, we opted for a different solution: the first helmet with a rollbar, offering excellent vision and a high level of safety.
This helmet, with its exciting, high-tech design, is hallmarked by its most distinctive feature, the rollbar, which guarantees protection for the lower part of the face without reducing field of vision.
The helmet is built using highly reliable materials and modern components. In particular, the rollbar, in high-performance aluminium, is highlighted by its titanium-colour anodized finish, which enhances the unit’s visual appearance.
In flight, the sensation provided by Rollbar is that of a full-face helmet, but with improved vision.

The turbo skip avoids that the air flow can enter from the under side of the helmet and create annoying turbolences between the eyes and the visor.
It is fixed on the rollbar and can easyly be replaced.

Polistirolo

Polystyrene

The polystyrene is very thick to achieve the hard penetration test of the E.N. 966 certification.

Ventilazione

Airflow inside the helmet

Big wholes allow a perfect inside ventilation

Padding

Sizes and Interchangeable internal padding

This helmet has a fixed luxury internal padding that can be replaced by larger or smaller one, 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.

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.
There are 5 internal padding for the sizes:

Cinturino

Adjustable plastic-coated stainless steel wire sidepieces with luxury chin strap

You can easily adjust the steel wire sidepieces with a allen key (supplied with the helmet)
The strap is millimeter adjustable
Registered model.

Headsets

Ear defenders or 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.

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.
If you have any doubt about the application of the headset, please send us a mail to staff@icaro2000.com

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.

Certificato

Certification E.N. 966

All our helmets are designed especially for free flight and micro light pilots, in accordance with the European standards (EN 966).

The Rollbar Plus has all the same parts as our model Rega plus the long visor.
Therefore the certification is the same of the helmet Rega.
The Rega II has been tested by the italian laboratory Newton and the certification has been issued by the SNCH Luxembourg
Look at the complete Certification

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.

For more information about the E.N. 966 test please read our page About safety

Look also at our very interesting video we made during the EN 966 test of the helmet Rega.

Weights


The weight of a fiber glass helmet has a tolerance of +/- 50 grams due to the glue applied and to the thickness of the fiber glass layers.
