Product Description

It's a matter of survival. In an unforgiving maze of gravel strewn corners and malevolent steel a rider needs protection, vision and comfort. The call to arms has been answered. Introducing the Icon Variant helmet.

The wind tunnel refined shell, executed in a Fiberglass / Dyneema / Carbon matrix, forms a solid first line of defense. Internally, a dual-density EPS core provides critical Energy Management, greatly reducing impact forces transmitted to the head.

Of course safety is best affected by avoiding the crash altogether. To this end the Variant features a reshaped eyeport which provides enhanced peripheral vision. The Variant's unique visor system also contributes to improved vision. When properly designed, such as on the Variant, the visor can help block bright sunlight while producing minimal lift characteristics. Couple this with Icon's Fog-Free coating and it is obvious why the vision aspects of the Variant are superior.

Another important method of increasing safety is by reducing rider fatigue. Excessive heat buildup can result in both discomfort and distraction. Neither a good situation. The Variant's extensive venting system works at all speeds providing necessary airflow to the helmet interior. The airflow works in conjunction with the wicking Hydrady liner to effectively reduce heat buildup.

Awesome Helmet

I love this helmet! Fits nice and snug just like it should. I ordered a Large (I have a Large Fox V2 and V3 for dirt biking) and figured it should be in the same ball park sizing as my motocross helmets, which it was. The flat/rubberized black looks great with the Fire/Iridium shield. I would strongly recommend this helmet!

Solid Dual Sport Helmet for the Money

I use this helmet on my supermoto and dual sport. At highway speeds there is a lot of wind drag. The visor isn't the easiest to swap out which can be less than ideal when going out for rides at night or in inclement weather. The visor works well to block sun when it's in your eyes. Very well constructed helmet, haven't had any issues with it yet. I would usually wear a Medium helmet however I first got the medium and had to return it for a large as I couldn't even get my head into the helmet. I'd recommend ordering 1 size up or try to find a store that has them and trying out which size works best for you.

I found my favorite helmet

I first ordered the orange version of this helmet thinking it would go with my repsol CBR but it didn't go well so I returned it (no problems at all) and got the matte black rubberized version. It fits like a charm and the venting is great on hot days - beats all my other helmets by far and so worth the money. Just a note on sizing, it was snug the day I got it but broke it in within a week or so and now fits great. Medium = about a 7 3/8 sized fitted hat.

Completely Disappointing!

Bought a Variant and a silver mirrored shield. Replacement shield doesn't fit right and one of the inner vent covers completely fell out of the helmet before I even had a chance to wear it on my bike. $415 for two pieces of garbage! If you're gonna spend that much for a helmet and shield, it had better be higher quality. Be warned! I expected more from Icon.
