The light Icaro helmet: only 390 grams

In the Red Bull X-Alps 2013 competition it was for the first time mandatory to wear a helmet with E.N. 966 certification.

The pilots have searched for a helmet that is as light as possible, and they have found our TZ model without ear defenders or electronic headsets.

Clement Latour, second classified, was wearing this slightly modified helmet of just 390 grams.

4fight Skydive the helmet for skydivers

All 4fight full-face models are now available with a mini-skirt that prevents air flow from entering the helmet.

We are convinced that for the skydivers we can offer a better protection with our E.N. 966 certified helmets.

The mini-skirt is also ideal for giving paraglider and hang glider pilots protection from cold air.
