FINALLY, SMART HELMET IS HERE!
In constant pursuit of safety aspects of our sport we at Papillon Paragliding, have joined forces with RECCO and BOERI to produce most exciting helmet in sub 500gr range – BOERI MERCURY PAPILLON HELMET.
With only 470g it is one of the lightest flying helmets on the market and it comes just 16.408g heavier than a pint of beer that is 16 ounces or 453.592g.
It comes with an electronic transponder that weighs less than four grams sewn to the chin strap of your helmet.
RECCO Reflector technology makes you searchable to professional rescuers in the event of an accident. This RECCO reflector is a small, battery-free transponder which responds to signals from a RECCO detector to assist detection of the helmet wearer in the case of an avalanche usually but can also be used for remote mountain climbers and very adventurous paragliders.
