Icon Variant Helmet - Solid Survival is a matter of enhanced situational awareness - an unforgiving maze of gravel strewn corners and malevolent steel. Comfort, vision, protection. Introducing the Variant helmet from Icon. A wind tunnel refined shape, executed in a Fiberglass/ Dyneema/Carbon matrix, along with an dual-density EPS core provide critical impact energy management. Extensive venting and a removable Hydradry wicking liner provide increase comfort by reducing rider fatigue. The anti-lift visor directs and channels airflow as it reduces the glare from an unyielding UV assault. While the extended eyeport and zero distortion optics provide unrivaled field of view. If the streets are your area of operation - equip yourself for the fight with the Icon Variant . 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. Fiberglass / Dyneema / Carbon Fiber Shell Industry leading multi-inlet ventilation system Wind tunnel tested and refined Antilife visor Integrated chin EPS Air Channels reduce shield fogging Distortion free precision optics Anti-fog shield Removable Hydra-Dry moisture wicking liner Removable chin curtain

I have been wearing an Icon Variant Salvo for about 2 years now. The helmet fits good, but is a little noisy. I wore this helmet to ride from NJ to TX and had no problems at all. The only small downside is that in high winds the helmet will pull with the wind, but overall very good, especially if you use a communicator in your helmet or a camelback while riding.

The install of this headset is simple and the improvements over prior models are great. The one downside I have is that when singing along with music, the product will switch over to the radio function. I am sure this is something that could be remedied with the settings, but unfortunately this product is not supported by Mac so I have not been able to do the online settings.
Overall this is a great product and just made a 1200 mile ride very enjoyable for both music and conversation with my brother who also has a g9 and the pairing was simple.
Yes, I recommend this product.
