Gazing down the barrel reveals a clarity of purpose. A single minded mission devoid of right or wrong. The Variant Battlescar understands this unequivocally. The raw shell, tinted in variegating shades of dark earth and covert green, it is truly unique amongst its contemporaries. It is both unrefined and elegant. A natural beauty with a penchant for three-round bursts.

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.
Very impressed with the ventilation and lack of noise. Visor grabs the wind a bit lane checking at speed however don't notice after a couple miles. Quieter than my shoei quest on the highway!!

This helmet looks great and is very comfortable. Its a real head turner. Theres only 2 problems. The "charcoal" color actually turns brown in sunlights which is weird but in indoor lighting it looks like a dark grey. And the top piece of the helmet can get pretty annoying on windy days. When the wind hits it it moves the helmet alot and it feels like your a bobble head haha. Other than that this helmet is freaking amazing.

More than I expected
I ordered the green version of this helmet, and it is awesome! I was riding with a Shoei RF-1100 and this helmet feels lighter and has a better fit than my shoei. Props to ICON for sending a free shield cleaning kit and an extra shield with the helmet. Changing the shield can be a little intimidating the first time you do it. When I was removing the side plates the helmet felt like something was going to break. While riding, the visor is noticable but after a week I have adjusted and hardle feel it while cruising at normal human speeds. Don't hesitate to buy this helmet!

This is AS1698 certified, but will not include that sticker unless the helmet is purchased in Australia.
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.
