Flight Helmets and Carbon Fiber Aviation Products
Perris, California, July 13, 2016 - Bonehead Composites has been the leading manufacturer of carbon fiber helmets for extreme sports since 1996, primarily focusing on products for skydiving.

We take great pride in everything we design and manufacture from the early stages of CAD design, Rapid Prototyping, CNC work to testing and production - all of which is done in-house. And best of all, our products are manufactured in the USA.

Our flight helmets are the preferred choice of Aerobatic, Sport and Agricultural pilots due to their light-weight and low-profile design, customization options and integrated communications.

At 2016 Airventure we are releasing the newest helmet in our line of flight helmets, the Aries.

he Aries features an integrated visor, which opens and closes into the shell of the helmet with a single-handed turn of the knob. The Aries addresses the need for a low-profile communication helmet tailored to aircraft with limited headroom. Constructed of vacuum molded carbon fiber and fiberglass, this light-weight helmet packs a punch when it comes to completing the mission.

The shell features a quick release chin strap buckle and adjustable strap, nape strap, visor snaps and fastened ABS adjustable ear cups with conform foam seals for sound attenuation. A Velcro-fastened adjustable liner completes the fitting.

The total weight of the helmet is 2.6 pounds.

The Aries comes standard with the communication package and can be customized to each specific pilot's needs including:

- Oxygen Receivers
- Tinted Visor
- Gentex Visor
- Gel Ear Seal Upgrade
- Cloth Ear Covers
- Single Plug or 2-plug Cord
- CEP Ear Buds

The Aries and PilotX Flight helmets come standard with the communication package that includes a choice of two-plug general aviation panel cord or single-plug helicopter cord with an emergency disconnect at the helmet via a Nexus U-92 A/U plug. The microphone, which can be mounted on either the right or left side, is an electret flex boom with foam wind muff. Hearing options include the standard 300 ohm ear cup mounted speakers as well as the optional military grade ear buds (CEP).

When the PilotX flight helmet was released in early 2015 it quickly became the helmet of choice for Aerobatic pilots, such as Rob Holland and is the Official Flight Helmet of the Airbus Perlan II Mission.

Flight Helmet Line:
Comm-It, an introductory Flight helmet with CEPs.
PilotX, a mid-level customizable flight helmet with integrated comms.
Aries, a customizable flight helmet with integrated comms and integrated visor.
