- Good quality and solid construction.
- Good Aero dynamics, does a good job at deflecting wind, especially when riding fast against the wind on a windy day.
- Comfortable and snug. Fit was spot on according to size charts.
- Compared to better priced alternatives, this helmet isn't really worth it. It DOES NOT do a great job at blocking wind-whistle noise.
- After 2 weeks of use, head entry is still very tight and it hurts, I wonder if it will eventually break-in.
- The visor lock is THE WORST design I've ever used, but that's not to say it's useless, it actually works, it's just an annoying mechanism.
- Round and fat ugly design (In my opinion).
Bottom line: Would I recommend it/buy it again? Nope. There are better alternatives at better prices.
nice helmet that won't break the bank
This is my first helmet. The internet highly recommended it and I have to agree. It's not hot or heavy. I followed the sizing chart, but the helmet was too small. Customer service was super helpful and I exchanged for a larger size with zero problems.
First full face helmet I've ever owned, and was surprised how well it I could see with it on. I'm a Harley owner and I bought a sports bike so I needed a full face. The helmet is light and quiet. I measured just under 22 on my head and the small is perfect! I also love the graphics ..
This is the second Airmada helmet I've purchased. Got the first one in 2013 and just replaced it this year with the exact same helmet, just different color. I'd love to have a $1000 helmet, I'm sure they're great. But I haven't even tried one of them on for fear I'd realize the superiority instantly and never be able to own reasonably priced gear ever again! And that' what the Airmada is, reasonably priced gear that's comfortable and lasts long past the expiration date. Definitely recommend trying one of these out, they're worth a lot more than the price.
I just love everything about this helmet. The color is just amazing. It is a perfect fit. I have gotten so many complaints with this helmet.
First of all, this helmet fits great. I bought a small according to the size chart and my head measures 22 inches. It was snug out of the box but after an hour or so of wear it has broken in very nicely.
Wind noise is a minimum and although it doesn't have a chin skirt it lets in little to no air through the bottom. I ride a cruiser so it's out in the open and it cuts very cleanly at highway speeds without the tossing turbulence that I've experienced with other helmets.
It is very light compared with lower to middle end HJCs and even my older Shoei.
The windscreen doesn't fog in even in colder 45-50 degree weather and this is the first helmet I've used that I could tell if the vents were open or not.Can't wait to see how they perform in the heat of summer.
I've always wanted an ICON and I'm not in the least disappointed and although I got mine on sale at nearly half off (thanks motosport) I'd have no problem paying full retail for another one in the future.
PS the graphics are even nicer than they appear in the pictures
It was a nice helmet I just didn't like the white circle in back with words " Thriller " on it. Liked like something for Michael Jackson. I don't know why the graphics just didn't go over that area. Instead of the white circle with words in it.
The Airmada is Icons best helmet in my opinion, lots of breathability when needed, and seals up when you don't. Not to mention all the great design options. The Bioskull specifically is super rad with the oil chrome gloss finish.
The sizing is pretty spot on, I ordered a small at first and couldn't get in on, but it was exchanged for free, and the medium fits really snug.
