 Icon Alliance Helmet - Solid
Icon Alliance Helmet - Solid
Icon Alliance Solid Helmet The Icon Alliance Solid Helmet is the spirited refinement of the original Alliance SSR Helmet, its predecessor. The new Icon Alliance Helmet improves upon the original design in some key ways making it a good option for a mid-price range sport helmet. Nothing beats a solid color to emphasize the styling of a helmet and the Icon Alliance is available in a variety of colors and a Rubatone matte or gloss finish that gives the rider choice in their simplicity. This kick ass helmet packs a lot of bang for your buck which is why it is one of our favorites. All world standard, meets or exceeds the following DOT FMVSS 218 (US), ECE 22-05 (EUROPE), SAI AS1698 (AUSTRALIA) and SG (JAPAN) safety and testing standards. Does not ship with SAI OR SG Certification stickers unless purchased from an authorized dealer in that country. Wind tunnel tested and refined Molded twin channel supervent for increased cooling Rear exhaust ports prevent heat buildup Injection molded polycarbonate shell for strength Long oval headform Removable molded breath deflector reduces shield fogging Chin venting system reduces shield fogging Fully removable/washable Hydradry interior Quick-change for-free proshield with sideplates Prolock shield locking system

This is my first full face helmet. I've tried on Shoei, Nolan, and others. I know it's my only head, but it's hard to drop $400 or $500 on a helmet. This was a great bargain for me. I have a small head (22"), and the small is a perfect fit with no pressure points or discomfort. It is a little heavy. I don't know if it would be the best helmet for a day-long ride, but it's fine for my 30 minute commute to work or riding around town. The quality seems to be very good, and I haven't noticed any fogging issues. The only real problem is installing the face shield. It's hard to tell when it's secured, and I've had it come loose once or twice while I was riding. Vision, however, seems to be very good, and the helmet is very stable at hiway speeds.
There are better helmets out there for sure. But, at this price I can't imagine a better bargain. I'm thinking of getting another as a backup.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I didn't get much use out of these goggles. I was intrigued by the idea of having goggles and sunglasses rolled into one package. I also liked the idea of having the ability to change the lenses out. Unfortunately, the sunglasses never worked for me because the earpieces were a little too long to fit snugly or comfortably. This is probably just as well because the mechanism to switch between glasses and goggles is simply a hard plastic "tab" that you have to sort of force into place. I would imagine that over time these tabs would break from repeated use, although this never happened to me.
The foam padding around the eyes is thinly padded. It wasn't necessarily uncomfortable, but it was almost an afterthought. After using them sparingly for just over a year, they broke at the bridge of the nose and were rendered useless.
Despite the features, they just aren't worth the price for the quality.
No, I do not recommend this product.

This is the 2nd Teknic product that I've ordered from Revzilla. The other was the Rage Jacket, which I found to be too small, uncomfortable, and a little cheap feeling. This is a much better product, although I did order 2 sizes larger this time. I'm about 5'8" and 160lbs. The 42 fits well.
This jacket has a very aggressive sport look. It's a fine gauge mesh with armored elbows, shoulders, and back. It is a little heavier than I expected, but it offers good protection. The removable liner is a nice touch, but it does eliminate the jacket's breathability. With the liner in it seems rather clammy in hot temps. It's easily removable, however. There are just 2 snaps on either side, the rest is held in place with Velcro. Putting the liner back in requires some patience, mostly in getting the sleeves back in their proper place.
There are 2 outside pockets and one interior pocket that is not usable if the liner is in. This may not seem like a lot of storage, but this is not a touring jacket. In fact, the fit and look of this jacket is geared more towards a sport rider. As the video implies, it is very short, with broad shoulders and pre-curved arms. Keep this in mind as it probably won't suit every type of rider.
I found the adjusters on the waist and forearms and wrists were very good. I like the Velcro wrist adjuster. It seems more comfortable than snaps. It has both a belt attachment and a zippered attachment for jeans or riding pants.
Overall, I like this jacket, especially at this closeout price. I don't think the look or fit is right for everyone. But, it is a great value for someone looking for a nice warm weather jacket with good protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These shields are great! I own several in different colors. They do not fog since they aren't close to your face. The field of vision is excellent, and they offer more protection from dust and debris than goggles. They're great in the rain or summer heat. Just be careful, they're prone to scuffs and scratches if you're not careful where you store' em.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I had my eye on this jacket for a while. I thought it might be a good alternative to a neon yellow hi-vis jacket. Unfortunately, it runs toward the opposite end of the spectrum in terms of style.
First, it runs really small, almost a full 2 sizes smaller than my other jackets. Secondly, the shoulders are very square and wide, while the waist is extremely tapered. It reminded of something my wife would have worn in the eighties.
Third, the material is very stiff and plastic-like. Any arm movement made the entire jacket ride up my torso in jerky, crunchy fits. It was uncomfortable just standing in it for a few minutes.
There are some nice details, like the unique open-ended snaps on the waist adjuster and sleeves and the leather panels on the shoulders and forearms are kinda cool!
Overall, the jacket doesn't have the comfort and feel of something in this price range.

I'll admit I never actually used this suit. I was drawn to it because of the price and the retro styling. Unfortunately, I did not pay enough attention to the "arctic" aspect of the suit. Living in a warm weather climate I don't have much need for insulation. Assuming you have some gear underneath, I would imagine it to be very warm. Wearing it briefly inside, it was more than adequate for warmth.
However, beware of the fit. The torso runs on the small side. The cuffs are elasticized and are extremely small. Anyone with large forearms or wrists would probably find it uncomfortable. On the flip side, the legs are rather baggy. I would think they would catch quite a bit of air riding at hiway speed. They have zippered legs openings to fit over boots easily, but stepping into the suit can be a bit of a chore because the zipper does not go down quite far enough.
As for utility, I thought the oversized map pockets and flap pockets on the chest were a nice touch.

This is a decent helmet for the price. It is very lightweight and comfortable. However, it is best suited for riding around town as, like most open face helmets, it is very noisy. Also, at hiway speeds air tends to get under the shorty-style visor and lift up a little. Still, it's a good choice for leisurely rides at slower speeds or throwing on to run some errands.
