Icaro Nerv Lite


The Design
In the Red Bull X-Alps 2013 competition, it was mandatory for the first time to wear a helmet with E.N. 966 certification. The pilots searched for a helmet that is as light as possible, and they found the TZ model without ear defenders or electronic headsets. Clement Latour, second classified, was wearing this slightly modified helmet of just 390 grams.

The 3 mm thickness polycarbonate shell has the advantage to be very light but still very strong. The carbon look is just a perfect serigraphy. The polystyrene has a density of 90 g/cm3.

Interchangeable internal padding
Three internal pads are adapted to the three sizes determined by the wheel regulator situated in the back of the helmet. They can be replaced by larger or smaller padding pieces which included the wheel regulator. If the helmet is not a perfect fit, contact us and we will exchange padding to achieve the desired fit. One major advantage to the interchangeable padding is that you can easily remove and wash or replace it with a new one.

New Edge Piping
We've replaced the normal rubber edge piping of the shell with a stitched strip of fabric around all the helmet. The result is unique and beautiful.

Certification E.N. 966
The Transalp helmet is a slightly modified TZ, and it has the same certification.

The TZ model has been tested by the Italian laboratory CSI a company authorized by the Italian Ministry of Transport and recognized by the German TUV.

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

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 the Icaro website page about safety.
