Looks very nice, but very noisy!

Helmet looks great, airflow is good, even better when I get below my f4i's windshield, and if you close the top vents the bottom vents provide more air. Stable and works good, very noisy! (As if you open a window on the highway), noise is not from the vents being opened or closed, drowns out the noise from my yoshi headers/exhaust to just wind.

I bought this helmet for my spoiled boyfriend for his birthday...he LOVES it. The only complaint is the threads of the carbon fiber on the left side of the helmet are crooked and wavy in about a 1 1/2"X1 1/2" area. For $500 this should have been caught, and never sent out. Neither of us wanted to deal with stress that replacing things via web usually takes so we just kept it the way it is.

It’s a great fit, looks awesome, and flows air very well. Lots of wind noise when going fast and all the vents open. My only concern is when the helmet is closed, then you open it up, on the left and right sides of the shield the rubber pieces catch on the shield and it can be difficult to open, unless I missed something? It only does it when it is fully closed and opened, not partially open still.

Super light, great fit for me I have a huge head, got the medium and it was a little tight but broke in just fine. So for me I would definitely recommend this helmet, you can't complain about a price when it's protecting your head.

Great looking helmet, but no sizes fit my head properly I have an oval head and couldn't find the right line or cheek pad combination, so I had to return multiple pads and helmet. No luck, but I did like the way this helmet looks so I was very disappointed.

What a piece of crap, the mechanism that holds the face shield broke once, sent it back and as soon as I flipped up the shield, both sides of the shield popped off. I am returning it for a refund, never buy an ICON helmet again, going back to Arai.

I have been riding for 16 years and I have been through my share of helmets and Icon has hit it on the nose. Let us start with the look, very attractive and looks aggressive, it screams bad ass. The weight is ridiculously light and I thought Aria was supposed to be light but Aria can't touch this helmet at all. As for the price, it being made of carbon fiber it is cheap and compared to the upper end helmets like Shoei and Aria it is priced below those two. The only issue I had with this helmet is the noise level which is somewhat loud but this helmet gives you options to customize the fit with different size padding which fixes the problem of noise. I always thought it funny to see a person with the sickest bike with all the aftermarket mods to improve the bikes' performance but when it came to the gear they wear they go cheap. Take it from me if you got the bike to show invest in the gear to protect yourself it is worth the money when you need the protection. As for this helmet, you won't regret the money you spend on it.

I got the black Carbon. It looks great. I had an Icon Alliance Rubatone before this helmet. The Carbon maintains the stealth look with some graphics, too. The helmet is very light. It seems to weigh about half of the Alliance, holding one in each hand. On my head, you can barely feel it. And surprisingly, the spoiler does stabilize the helmet significantly at speed. Fit is a little smaller than the Alliance in medium. Just for reference.
