Aegis-D Aviation Helmet

The Aegis-D is designed for comfort and protection. It is the modern version of the SPH style helmet. The Aegis family of helmets benefitted from the technological innovations developed for Paraclete’s performance helmet the Aspida™. Constructed using a unique Fiberglass shell composite and extensive 3rd party testing. The Aegis designed with a shock-absorbent shell core and Pilotview ergonomics for unmatched visibility in a budget-friendly package.

The -D indicates that the helmet has been approved by an ISO certified 3rd party testing facility to the standard set by the United States Department of Interiors and the United States Forestry Service (DOI/USFS). The helmet is classified as a Type 1 (helicopter) helmet by the testing parameters that it met. The helmet can be used by the agencies and contractors for DOI/USFS.

The Aegis family of helmets come with a painted gloss white shell and visor cover. Any variations in the paint colors will include a $200 fee.

The shape of the helmet is round oval. If the user’s head is long or intermediate oval they may need to go up in size or go with a thinner Nephos™ Comfort Liner.
