I recently had a cheap hjc helmet. So this one was a big upgrade. It fits nice and snug for an extra large. It has the lid lock which is great. Ive drove my bike four times with this helmet as of this writing and no problems to report. Def worth it!
10 years of pushing the envelope, of going above and beyond. A decade of creating technologically advanced products designed by and for the needs of the street rider: you. The Airmada™ is the end result of all of Icon's hard-earned experience in an industry that doesn't tolerate second best. This is Icon's highest evolution of helmet craftsmanship and you'll realize this from the moment you take off.
The first thing you'll notice is the new low profile shell, which now comes in four separate sizes to better fit a variety of riders. The energy absorbing dual-density EPS liner uses the rider-preferred oval head form and comes in a further five sizes to offer a personalized fit without an ounce of wasted space. The effort to reduce the helmet size combines with the tough polycarbonate shell to create a helmet that fits better, is ridiculously light, and still maintains the exclusive ALL WORLD STANDARD of Icon to suit your riding style.
With fit and function in mind, the designers of the Airmada™ focused on bringing rider comfort to a new level. The Airmada™ keeps you cool when the pace heats up. The SuperVent™ system has been completely revamped with even more effective ventilation and exhaust porting across the helmet. The new Ventral Primary™ intake improves the Airmada's™ cooling airflow in ways other helmets can only dream of, and long nights were spent improving the ergonomics and function of the venting controls. Designed and positioned to make on-the-fly adjustments quick and easy, the Airmada™ is built from the ground up to offer perfect comfort for any riding condition.
Even the shield system has been completely redesigned to give riders the best view of the road ahead. The new Rapid Release™ shield removal system allows you to change an Icon Optics™ shield in a fraction of a second. This cutting-edge system allows you to select the right shield for the conditions, all of which produce an unrivaled distortion-free line of sight to what lies ahead.
The Icon® Airmada™ once again sets the standard for the ideal street helmet.
