Standard Com Features    
     

Safe and Comfortable
These fully certified helmets are super light weight and extremely durable Polycarbonate. They are amoung the most comfortable helmets we have ever tried.

Radio Compatibility
The Com helmets work with most FRS, GMRS, VHF, UHF, and aviation radios. Choose your connector from the lists below. If you don't see your radio, email or call: 619-993-1922.

 

Sound Clarity
The noise canceling microphone keeps the conversations clear, even at full throttle. Normal microphones are useless in this environment.

Push to talk, left or right side
The push to talk button is available either on the left or right side ear cup. Typically you will choose a PTT that is on the opposite side of your throttle. The trend now is for left hand throttles so the dominate right hand is free for other tasks.

     
Deluxe Com Additional Features    
     

Side Tone
The Deluxe Com adds side tone, which allows you to hear yourself while you transmit, providing confirmation that the radio is working. Side tone helps you speak at the correct volume to avoid over modulation while still speaking loud enough. Though many experienced pilots do without side tone, it is especially helpful for newer pilots.

Music Input
The Deluxe Com comes with a 5mm music input (RCA mono) which allows you to listen to music devices like an MP3 player or iphone. The Peltor Earcups deliver crisp clear sound for music and radio transmissions. Since thehelmet input is RCA mono, you will need the optional Music Adaptor (above) to convert the 3.5mm stereo output from most music devices.
  Deluxe Com Music Adaptor
 

Aviation Radios
The Deluxe Coms are compatible with many aviation radios including Icoms and Vertex. The aviation 2 pin connector enables you to use the helmet with a general aviation intercom.

Of the 3 helmets, the Fly UL is typically more difficult to fit correctly. The sizes on the left are the manufacturer's recommended sizes. However, we have found that pilots need to choose a Fly UL that is one size larger than that indicated by the manufacturer.

xxLarge is not available in the Fly UL, but is available in the SkyRider and Horus. Also we've noticed that the Fly UL is a bit tighter front to back give yourself a bit more room when ordering the Fly UL.

When measuring your head, please give this the attention it deserves. It takes less time to measure carefully than to repack and return a helmet.

Place the tape measure around your head, just above the center of the forehead, and on the "lump" in back. Make sure the tape is level all around and pull it snug. Measure to the nearest 1/8 inch or 1/2 centimeter.

Standard and Deluxe Com helmets are compatable with most radios. Choose from the 10 connectors when ordering. It's also a good idea to include your model number in the notes page during the checkout process for your order. Don't worry, if for some reason you have a radio we can not accomidate, you will not be charged.

Aviation radios such as the Icom IC-A4, IC-A5, IC-A6, IC-A14 and the Vertex VXA220 require the Deluxe Com, which has the amplified mic that most aviation radios need.

If you aren't sure which connector you need or don't see your radio listed, call or email us with your radio model information.

CT-44 Adaptor

If you have a Yaesu/Vertex vx-270 or v-x250, consider choosing the Standard 2 pin connector and purchase a CT-44 or CT-91 adpator. This will give you more versitility, because you'll bee able to use radios with either connector type. These adaptors are available at most Ham Radio stores such as Universal Radio or Ham Radio Outlet.

What Radio should I use?
When it comes to powered paragliding, cheap FRS radios are popular, but they are not always the best solution. Aviation band radios are rarely needed. More...
