Is it really the best helmet for the money?
Starting out in powered paragliding, I like many others, went learned about the sport on Youtube. Once I was in the phase to search for helmets I was very overwhelmed with prices ranging from $200 - over $1300. Do I build my own? Do I drop $1,300+ on a new helmet? Hit up ebay for the MX-03 or Yueny China helmets? Piece together my own with a Sena and two way radio adapter? Buy a PPG Helmet and headset designed for the PPG sport?
So what did we do?
All of the above. Yes, we bought, borrowed, and built all of the above combinations and I'd like to share what we've learned:

Whats up with the headset?
At the end of the day there are many options out there. Several pilots are looking to save a few buck and go with a DIY helmet. Most who do this use it for a few months and want to upgrade to something that gives better communication and is more comfortable. We worked out a deal and have ICARO and PLUS MAX IN STOCK and able to provide 2-5 Day delivery and these high quality helmets for $225 Helmet only to $570 Helmet with Bluetooth /noise canceling.
My intent with sharing this is to provide some insight into the world of helmets that tend to be an after thought for pilots. I don't subscribe to buying the cheapest item, nor the most expensive. Rather the happy medium achieving the biggest bang for the buck.
