Paragliders are lightweight, free-flying, self-launched glider aircraft with no rigid structure, under which a pilot is suspended in a harness. The primary component of a paraglider is the fabric wing, the shape of which is formed and controlled by suspension lines, air vents, and local weather conditions.
When selecting a paragliding helmet look for one that is snug enough to avoid moving while underway without being so snug that you feel continuous pressure. Too much pressure could result in a nagging headache, which, in turn, might cause you to become unfocused during flight. Color comes down to personal preference, although white tends to be both cheaper and highly visible. You might also consider adding a visor for sunny days as well a built in radio headset for communication. Another popular option is a helmet-mounted camera that allows you to record every beautiful vista.
