The NeroHero helmet was designed by Ignazio Bernardi, with technical consultancy from the most important helmet developer in Italy.
The result is a unique, highly aerodynamic, state-of-the-art helmet.
Full Carbon or Fiberglass
NeroHero is a helmet constructed with the same technology as used in military applications, including high-modulus carbon or glass fiber and high-density polystyrene to guarantee optimal standards of safety.
The polystyrene is very thick in order to pass the stringent penetration test required by E.N. 966 certification.
This helmet is always sold with a visor.
There are 3 visor colours available: transparent, tinted brown and mirror.
Please bear in mind that the mirror visor is particularly delicate.
All our visors are anti-fog, anti-scratch, and have full UV protection.
Interchangeable Internal Padding
The internal padding pieces are very attractive, but above all they are soft and very comfortable.
The size of a helmet is specified by the inner circumference of the internal padding.
The size number therefore corresponds to the head circumference in centimetres.
The NeroHero helmet is supplied with 3 sets of internal padding with different thicknesses, for the sizes:
For sizes 61 and 62, Icaro will be making a NeroHero helmet with a larger shell and thicker polystyrene.
In addition, we have created a brand-new system to further enhance helmet comfort.
Every size is attained by means of 8 small, soft, breathable padding pieces that can all be replaced by 8 thicker or thinner versions.
The chin padding pieces are also interchangeable, and have different thicknesses.
We deliver the helmet with 3 sets of 8 internal padding pieces and 3 sets of chin padding pieces of different thicknesses, so that you can be sure to attain a perfect fit simply by changing all or some of the padding pieces.
This system provides another benefit: it is easy to remove the padding pieces and replace them with new pieces. They are simply attached to the polystyrene liner with small lengths of Velcro.
Airflow Inside the Helmet
There are two small apertures at the front, and two at the back of the helmet, plus two large channels between the internal padding pieces. These features ensure good ventilation for the head inside the helmet.
E.N. 966 Certification
The NeroHero helmet was tested by the Italian laboratory CSI, a company authorized by the Italian Ministry of Transport.
This helmet was designed specifically for free flight pilots, in accordance with the respective European standard (EN 966).
But it is also ideal for land sports.
Our helmets were designed and built specifically to be as light as possible for paraglider and hang glider pilots. However, the optimization of safety is our primary priority. On pages 7 and 8, the test report shows that the impact measurements for the NeroHero helmet are far lower (and therefore safer) than the Max Peak Deceleration (-250 g) permitted.

In addition, you could take a look at the interesting video we made during the EN 966 tests on the Rega helmet.
