Icaro 2000 Oceano Helmet
Italian Design: The Oceano has been designed by Ignazio Bernardi, with the technical consultancy from the greatest Italian helmet designer.
The result is a helmet with a distinctive, modern appearance.
The creation of a new helmet is a lengthy process. It begins with a prototype made in wood and plaster, sculpted like a fine artwork with all the classic Italian artisanal talent.
Once this has been perfected, it is scanned to create a 3D file, which can be used for computer simulations, colour tests and detailed design. After further refinements, this file is then used to programme the CNC machines that cut the dies for the outer shell and the polystyrene lining.
This is just the start: the process continues with manufacturing, assembly, quality control, testing and packaging. The result is alluringly attractive and technically impeccable. In short, 100% Italian style.
Shell is polycarbonate: The 3 mm polycarbonate shell is very light but also very strong.
Polystyrene: To make the helmet as light as possible, the polystyrene has a series of carefully-engineered perforations.
4 fixed sizes with interchangeable internal paddings:
This helmet has a waterproof 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.
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 4 internal padding for the sizes:
- 56 (Small)
- 58 (Medium)
- 60 (Large)
- 61 (X Large)
Micrometric chin strap: The chin strap can be infinitesimally adjusted.
E.N.1385 Certification: For the first time, we have attained a new certification for this lightweight helmet: E.N. 1385 (Helmets for canoeing and white water sports)
The Oceano has the same certification of the helmet Nerv light.
It has been tested by the italian laboratory CSI, a company authorized by the Italian Ministry of Transport.
