The new helmet replace the full-face 4fight models.
One size fits all from Small (56 cm) to Large (61 cm)
EN 966 certification
4fight leaves the scene, to a standing ovation. Our helmet with its distinctive tail first saw the light in 2004, and it attained immediate and long-lasting success. As a result of its intriguing appearance and its great aerodynamic efficiency, masterminded by our designer and photographer Ignazio Bernardi, many hang glider pilots used it, above all in competitions, and still today it is the best-selling helmet ever in this sport.
Over the years, 4fight has been made in a number of different models. One of them, 4fight Cut, with a truncated tail, was created for paraglider pilots because the long tail was impractical for their specific requirements. Other versions include the Jet model, and the 4fight MR, in which MR are the initials of Manfred Ruhmer, winner of many hang gliding and rigid wing World Championships.
Even though 4fight is still a very popular product, we wanted to create an innovative helmet that could meet the developing expectations of contemporary pilots.
And so today we are proud to present NeroHero, tough and modern, very beautiful especially in the real carbon version. With NeroHero, safety has a new shape.
Use your head, wear a better helmet!
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.

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!
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.
