The Nerv 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.
The 3 mm thickness polycarbonate shell has the advantage to be very light but still very strong.
The polystyrene is reinforced with one more layer of polycarbonate to achieve the hard penetration test of the E.N. 966 certification. Between the shell and the polystyrene there are 2 channels with their wholes for the air flow.
You can open or close the entrance of the air into the helmet just with one hand and while you are flying.
The visor is an option. It is made of polycarbonate with anti-scratch and anti-fog treatment. Four types are available: transparent, tinted grey, orange, mirror. You can also apply a foam on the visor to avoid any air inside the visor.
There are 3 available sizes with wheel regulator for a perfect fit of the head circumference from 53 cm to 61 cm. 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 centimeters.
Three internal paddings are adapted to the 3 sizes determinated by the wheel regulator situated in the back of the helmet. They can be replaced by larger or smaller padding pieces included the wheel regulator, thus varying the helmet size. You just choose your own size of ICARO tailored inner helmet lining for a safe, perfectly comfortable head fit…. It can be changed in moments in case a different size is needed. 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 very soft ear covers are easily removable. Sometimes they can change the fabrics of the strap. In order to increase the protection we advise to always use the helmet with the ear pads protection and never take them off.
Certification E.N. 966
The Nerv has been tested by the italian laboratory Newton 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 our page About safety. Look also at our very interesting video we made during the EN 966 test of the helmet Rega. Look at the complete EN 966 test report.
