Facelifts are a mixed blessing. Don't get Icon wrong - they're in favor of cougars looking their best - but they've seen some scary lizard faces lately. Icon decided to go a different route with the Headtrip. She was never given a fair shake the first time around; banished to hell by an overzealous corporate purchasing monster. Re-colored but not stretched thin, Icon brought her back for another go. Don't look at it like a facelift. Think of it more like an eyeliner tattoo with LSD instead of ink.
Evolved. Refined. Perfected. Icon has never been satisfied with the status quo - which is why they created the new Icon Alliance helmet. Based on the proven Alliance SSR, this next gen helmet is fitted with a multitude of key revisions. The first revision is the new EPS liner. Icon has listened to the customers requests and reshaped the EPS liner into a more oval geometry. This new headform increases rider comfort by slightly elongating the entire inner circumference. Combine this geometry with their removable Hydra-Dry wicking comfort liner and the result is a nearly perfect rider-focused enclosure. To further increase rider comfort they've revised the entire venting system. Much like a finely tuned motor, Icon has reshaped and enlarged the intake and exhaust ports for increased airflow.
Additional ventilation ports have also been added to the lateral aspect of the helmet to further increase ventilation. The shield itself has been upgraded to Icon's distortion free Pro-Shield. The ProShield features the ProLock shield locking system, graphic enabled sideplates, fog-free coating, and a no-tools shield change interface. Continuing with Icon's commitment to excellence, the Alliance is constructed with premier manufacturing processes and stringent quality assurance procedures. This, combined with rigorous testing, assures that the Alliance meets or exceeds the highest safety standards in the world (DOT, ECE, SG, SAI).
