The Icon Airframe helmet represents the pinnacle in modern helmet design. The Airframe is equipped with multiple safety and comfort features developed through exhaustive research and real world feedback. Premier manufacturing processes assure that the Airframe meets or exceeds the high safety standards set by DOT, ECE, SG and SAI. When fitted properly, the precisely-engineered fiberglass / Dyneema / carbon fiber composite shell and energy-absorbing dual-density EPS liner reduce transmitted impact forces.
To keep you focused on what's ahead of you, the Airframe is fitted with Icon's Proshield. Not only is the Proshield available in a variety of tinted styles with side plates for more graphic real estate, but it also features the Prolock shield lock system to keep your shield locked down, even during those high-speed head-checks. Icon knows people come in all shapes and sizes, so why not helmets? The Airframe is available in XS - 3X with cheekpads that are interchangeable across the entire size range for tailoring just the right fit. Additionally, the HydraDry moisture wicking material used throughout the interior comfort liner and extensive venting system combine to produce the industry's most ventilated and comfortable helmet.
I have owned easily a dozen helmets over the years but so far this is my favorite. The look of the carbon fiber is great the pictures really don't do it justice. The fit is perfect and personally I have no complaints but I will confirm what others have stated in their reviews which is the wind noise does seem a little louder than most helmets. The weight really is the most amazing part and believe or not on a long ride it does make for a more comfortable ride. If you've got the coin buy it you definitely won't regret it.
This Helmet is absolutely THE BEST HELMET I have ever owned..The style is great, it is so light you dont get the feeling of "ughh, I cant wait to get this helmet off" after long rides...It is just an ALL AROUND GREAT HELMET!! Yes, the price is preaty steep, BUT, this helmet is the perfect example of that saying "YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR" and that is exactly it, it may be alittle steep, but if you want a helmet that is going to last and you wont have to buy a new one ever couple years, lol heck, aslong as your head dont shrink or grow, this helmet will prob last a VERY LONG TIME and you WILL get your money's worth...ICON did great with this one!!!! And it Matches my bike PERFECTLY :)
this helmet is nice its by far the lightest helmet I have ever owned. it is a little noisy but the weight, look and fitment make up for that . I add the blue shield and makes the helmet look even better . cant wait to go on a long ride with it
Good looking helmet. Vents work well. Visor lock is almost to secure but is nice to know it won't pop open. Also the wind noise is very notable. Its worse the more upright you are sitting. Tollerable though. All in all a good helmet for the price.
Very light weight, amazing style, and actually works flows excellent air and keeps you cool on those hot days would recommend this helmet to any sport bike rider... ;)
Loved this helmet overall! fits great, good venting ece rating, and super comfortable when it breaks in!
The only reason I didn't give this helmet 100% is because it didn't fit ME. It might fit your head shape just fine. I have a longer front to back head shape so this helmet was giving me a pressure point in the middle of my forehead. There were two things I didn't like about this helmet tho 1) The faceshield lock system is just a metal pin that you have to slide the shield over every time to lock in place which made it hard to open when riding and 2) The faceshield has side plates that are hard to remove. I felt like I was going to break it if I removed it. However the design is AWESOME inside and out and it is VERY light. I'm quite sad that it didn't fit me.
I absolutely loved this helmet when I saw it & I had to get it for my first helmet. I was ecstatic to get it. I just got it in yesterday & it's even more amazing in person. Cute and sassy kinda helmet for us female riders. The only thing is I measured my head to be about 21-22 inches the day I ordered it. So I got a small(SM) but it's too big. It fits my bf's head perfectly, but me & my sister are the same size (she has a small shoei helmet) and it fits us both perfectly. I just have to return it for another size because Icon runs a little bigger I guess, but I love this helmet! I will write another review when I get the size that fits me & I actually get to use it. For now I'm stuck with my boyfriend's extra helmet that is still too big for me :/
this was a birthday present for my girlfriend. she loves it. it looks even better than in the pictures and fits her great. i am very pleased with the quality and features of this helmet. very light and comfortable. now i want an icon airframe!
Fits great. Chrome shield works great. Only downside is its a little noisy with the side plates.
