This is the second variant I've owned...
First was the rubber-tone, Second is the construct.
The only issue I've had is the strip around the bottom came
came off, I just glued it back on.
They are loud but what can you expect. It's a reverse teardrop
with a visor..(wear headphones)... Not the most aerodynamic shape but still cuts through the wind decent
ICON Variant Helmet - Construct

Stripped of graphics and devoid of undo flair - the Construct wanders the earth in opaque minimalism. It is purity of form amongst the flamenco masses. It is truth of materials amid the Technicolor hordes. In a world where no two helmets are created equal, the Variant Construct and its raw shell stand alone.
The wind tunnel-tested Variant unleashes street-based performance specifically made for your style of riding. For a street rider, perhaps the most important consideration is environment. Icon analyzed common street-specific situations - impact protection, comfort, ventilation, visibility - and addressed those concerns with the Variant.

Received product with extra Visor , really loved this fact as I prefer GIFT VISOR over the original.
It's a bit small than supposed to be, yet Im very happy
The best street helmet I have ever purchased!! The styling is fantastic, has the hybrid look of dirt and street, but does not catch the wind as one would think. Obviously at hwy speeds the peak will catch some, not nearly as much as a motocross helmet does, and it does make a bit more wind noise due to the peak and all the air channels in it. Great fit for a person with a less than round head (oval or egg shape) so it doesn't squeeze the forehead as others would. The finish is awesome, each construct will be different than others because of how the clear coat the fibers, making each one unique. The peak is a matte black same with the nose piece and the rest of the helmet is a glossy clear finish (which in the pictures looks all matte) but is not. And comes with an extra smoked colored lens.

1. Measure your head size. To do this, pass a tape measure horizontally around your head at a height of about one inch above your eye- brows. When done properly, you will have measured the largest part of your head.
2. Check your measurement with the helmet sizing chart and select the closest size. As the helmet may not always meet your head size exactly, and your head measurement may fall between two sizes, first try the smaller size.
WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR HELMET
1. Expand the helmet opening by pulling outwards on each chinstrap, and slide your head into the helmet. If you are unfamiliar with helmets you may be reluctant to pull the helmet down, as it may feel too tight. Even if the helmet is difficult to put on, please use the smallest helmet possible. The helmet should feel snug. If the helmet is not tight, it is too big for you. New helmets will break in and loosen slightly over time.
2. Once the helmet is on:
- Check that the helmet inner lining fits snugly all around your head.
- Check that the top pad presses on the top of your head.
- Check that the cheek pads press up against your cheeks. When you open and close your mouth, you should drag your teeth along the inside of your cheeks.
- Check to make sure that you cannot easily slide your finger into the helmet along the side of your temple.
- Hold the helmet with one hand on each side. Without moving your head, try to move the helmet up and down, and side to side. You should feel the skin of your head and face being pulled as you try to move the helmet. If you can move the helmet around easily, it is too big. Try a smaller size. Please note that during this check, the chinstraps should be properly fastened.
