The Rollbar has been designed by Ignazio Bernardi, with the technical consultancy from the greatest Italian helmet developer.
The result is a helmet with an exclusive modern look.
Rollbar, a helmet built using the same technology as in military applications, including high-modulus glass fibre and high-density Polystyrene to guarantee the highest possible standards of safety.
The long transparent visor gives you great visibility both open and closed.
It can be easely locked onto the Rollbar, thus avoiding that it opens at high velocities.
Moreover the strong visor helps to protect the face like an integral helmet.
3 colors are available: transparent, tinted brown and mirror.
Attention: the mirror visor is very delicate.
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 the Rollbar is that of a full-face helmet, but with improved vision and with an excellent protection against the cold.
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.
The polystyrene is very thick to achieve the hard penetration test of the E.N. 966 certification.
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:
The stainless steel wire sidepieces are plastic-coated.
You can easily adjust them with a allen key (supplied with the helmet)
The system is a registered model.
We are the only usig this unique solution.
The strap is millimeter adjustable
We use only the best 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 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 [email protected]
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.
All our helmets are designed especially for free flight and micro light pilots, in accordance with the European standards (EN 966).
The Rollbar has been tested by the italian laboratory CSI a company authorized by the Italian Ministry of Transport.
Look at the complete Certification.
The certification expired in September 2018.
The new one is in progress.
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.
