LOVE LOVE LOVE this helmet!!!

Finally, a helmet that matches the feel of my bike...I own at least 4 helmets and this by far has become my favorite. Everything about this helmet is great, the air flow is great, visibility is better then any of my other helmets and the look that people give you is also unlike no other. It wouldn't be good for a track day or fast fast riding, but for my daily commute and traffic dodging it's perfect. There is a slight wind pull when looking back but with such a visor, it's not too bad, I feel that their choice of putting a white liner inside wasn't the best idea, it gets dirty pretty quickly. I highly recommend a mirror color shield, it just looks so sinister. The helmet sizing is pretty small, I had to order a MD which is a first for a helmet, but the sizing chart was right on. For the price you can't beat the features and styling. TWO THUMBS UP!

Awesome this helmet rocks!

This helmet is awesome. The fit is right on par with other icon helmets like the airframe. Other comments have been missing the point of this helmet. This helmet is not a touring or a race helmet. Icon calls it an urban assault helmet. I purchased this helmet for using when I ride my street fighter, but I find that this is my new favorite helmet; I wear it all the time. The air flow through this helmet is great. I’ve had other standard full face helmets that were less aerodynamically stable. You hear the wind a bit more but between the amount of air that flows through it and the visor it is not bad at all. If you are worried about the wind resistance or drag its not that bad. This helmet has attitude I added the chrome face shield and its sick. It is worth every penny as long as its the style you want if you plan on using it for its intended use city commuting.

Absolutely Love It!!!

I found the Fit to be perfect. My head size was on the border between a Medium and Large and selected the Large. It is a good snug fit without being overly tight. The airflow is incredible and the vents are easy to adjust, even while wearing winter gloves. As for the appearance... it was the "look" that first got me looking more closely at the helmet. It just has that "bad boy" look that I found appealing. A closer look revealed some very nice features... airflow being the most important. I've only had the opportunity to ride in 45-60 degree weather so far, and the airflow was very noticeable... so much so that I've had to close a couple of the vents. I'm really looking forward to seeing how well it cools the head in the 90-100 degree weather we get in mid-summer. As for cost... I see a lot of helmets on the market that are significantly more expensive with fewer features. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS HELMET!!!!

GREAT!!!!!!!

This helmet is super sick, I get looks all the time from people. The air flow is better than any other helmet I own. This helmet will make you stand out and make your friends jealous. Chatter Box was a lil tough to put on and the head phones push the pads out so it takes a lil getting used to. But other than that, best helmet I have gotten so far. Deff worth it.

Excellent Helmet

Just purchased a Variant. Wore an AFX FX-39 for approximately a year and a half daily. The AFX's liner is cheap and tears easily, started to look ratty pretty quick. FX-39 is okay for price but wears quickly. The Variant is worth the extra few dollars. Seems like an excellent middle choice between Shoei and AFX. I have worn the Variant several times, like the ratcheting visor, multi position; excellent liner; fit is excellent.

Super Comfortable

The liner in this helmet is plush, and the field of view is amazing. I think it's a great helmet for anyone like me, searching for a long oval headform helmet with a visor.

Awesome helmet!

Been riding for over 40 years. This is the most comfortable helmet I've had. Don't understand negative comments about changing visors. It was very easy for me. Airflow is great! Instead of a helmet, it feels like I'm wearing a hat!

Outstanding Helmet

Recently purchased the Variant and have worn it on several rides, about 500 miles on it now. Excellent air flow. My eyes do not dry out like they do in my SHOEI. Sunglasses fit well. I have not changed out the visor. Pads can be washed easily. Replacement parts readily available. Great buy!

Worth the 350$

First off let me start by saying that the shipping was super-fast and you get emails with the status of your order every step of the shipment price. The helmet is very sick looking, you can tell the quality just by looking at it. Everything works to perfection. The ventilation is incredible you can feel it flowing through your head despite how snug it is. I drove at 130 plus and it didn’t try to fly off like I thought it would, actually the visor and spoiler make your head very stable and not wobbly like the round ones. The presentation off the box it came in was very good. **NEGATIVES** One of the cheek pads is constantly un-buttoning from the inside. It’s very tight at the neck which is good for safety but it rips the hell out of your ears when taking it off. And it also looks way larger than any other helmet out there even for a large makes you kinda look like a real cool bobble head lol.

Great looking, and comfortable

I ordered the flat black Icon Variant Helmet and do not have a single complaint. The fit was a little smaller so I went with a size above the measurement on the size chart. If I had to complain I guess I would say the cost was a little much, but when it comes to protecting your brain going cheap doesn't seem like a smart thing to do. I read reviews from others and yes when you’re going 70 and up and you turn your head the wind does catch the visor. It's science, it’s gonna happen, but it’s not like it will rip your head off so relax. I also purchased the Dark Smoke visor and am very happy with the whole look. The air flow in the helmet is great, and the fact that you can take out the entire inside after sweating in it all day to let it dry makes the helmet perfect for me.

Best Helmet I've ever Owned!!!!

The helmet is very large, but I guess that's the price you pay for safety. The air flow has been the best I've ever experienced and the way the air is directed over the helmet it doesn't shake even over 100mph!!!! I have owned two other helmets and for the money the Icon is by far the best. You get what you pay for. Couldn't be happier. The only downfall is the cheek pads are a little tight. I can live with this, there is ample room for my sunglasses and my earphones for my mp3 player. I don't know what everyone is talking about with getting it on and off. Its pretty easy on and off. I would and will be buying another one for my girlfriend very soon. -Happy Riding

Strange but great!

Fantastic airflow. It's the first helmet I've ever owned (over 35 years riding) that I can feel the airflow within the helmet. Like the added peripheral vision with the large eye-port. I was concerned about feeling "drag" with all the plastic on the top but, it's not a problem. I regularly drive over 85 mph with no noticeable drag at all.

Great Lid

Nice DS Helmet. Cool modern design and features. Pros: Excellent visibility. Peak does shade sun. Pretty quiet, no visor whistling. Visor solid, without flexing and stable at speed. Cons: Some brow pressure from liner (spoiled by Arai). Can't open shield "just a crack" (spoiled by Arai). But quality build and futuristic Halo styling. Iconic.
