paragliding and paramotor helmets

Protection where it matters most: When selecting the appropriate paragliding or paramotor helmet, several factors should be taken into consideration to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. Making the wrong choice can not only lead to discomfort but also greatly compromises your safety. Look for helmets that meet CE certification standards to enhance safety measures.

faq Paragliding Helmets

While open face helmets are generally cheaper and still protective it is worth looking into a helmet with a full face helmet to protect your head even better from any potential injuries. It is known that other helmets have been used by flyers, however we do not recommend using a helmet that was not designed for paragliding specifically since these helmets are designed to protect flyers from specific falls and usually offer a lighter weight construction when compared to stereotypically helmets.

Some best selling helmets include the charly no limit  and the ozone shield helmets. While both helmets offer different experiences for flyers they both utilize up to date materials and technology to keep the flyers safe while also providing a light weight feeling great for enthusiast flyers.

Visors offer a host of benefits for added protection, UV light protection and act as a great cover from harsh winds. There are a variety of third party visors that generally attach with two screws into each of the temple areas of the helmet.

However we generally recommend to go with a helmet that has a visor built in as it is generally cheaper than buying each part separately and you can be guaranteed that the visor will fit the helmet perfectly. One of the most popular helmets that comes with a visor is the charly no limit helmet that offers a great visor system for visibility and comfort.
