Improved Helmet Design – 1st February 2011

Lynx Avionics has announced significant improvements to the design of its aviation helmets.

Lynx helmets now have an outer shell of high impact Polycarbonate and an internal trauma liner made from a combination of Polystyrene and Viscoelastic Polyurethane (Memory Foam). The new trauma liner moulds to the shape of the user's head, which makes the helmets very comfortable, whilst the composite design of the liner maintains full impact protection.

In addition, the collar padding has been redesigned to prevent helmets tilting forward when used with flying suits that also have a large collar. The helmet side straps are also longer to allow the helmet to fit over a headset more easily.

These latest improvements combine to make Lynx flying helmets the most comfortable and user friendly on the market.

Lynx Avionics helmets are CE marked and certified against the European Standard EN966:1996 'Helmets for Airborne Sports'.
