Icon Variant Battlescar Helmet 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 variegated 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. Features 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 NOTE Helmet ships with both Clear and Dark Smoke faceshields.

First, I love this helmet! It is awesome looking, pretty quiet compared to other helmets I have had in the past, and very comfortable on long trips, even with earbuds in. The fit was fine, I read some reviews where they had issues with the seal, but mine sealed up just like the original face shield, maybe I got lucky. I bought the Charcoal Battlescar which came with the dark smoke face shield and a clear shield. The dark smoke is optically clear and I get very little reflection on the inside when looking out. I screwed up and must have used something abrasive and scratched the inside pretty bad when cleaning it. I ordered the silver face shield because I thought it would look cool, which it does, but it is as though the mirror is on the inside and you are staring at your face when looking through. The optical clarity is not as good as the original dark smoke either, but it is not that noticeable unless you look for it. I rode at all times of day and positions of the sun, but only found clarity and little reflection when the sun was at my back. I can't recommend the silver face shield, maybe it's better with the gold, but the dark smoke is not only clearer, it's also quite a bit darker for sunny days.

Read a lot of reviews for these tires and decided to give them a go. Glad I did because they look great, feel great and met all my expectations for an awesome price. I have these on a Triumph Tiger 800XC. Not bad when you can buy the pair for less than the cost of most others rear. They are nice and aggressive looking, have handled speeds over 100 smoothly and feel good in the dirt. They are a little slick the first 100 miles or so, but most new tires are. I can't speak of the life, but after reading reviews they should hold up for at least 6-7k, and at this price no biggie if they go a little less. I will buy again when the time comes!!!

I really like this windscreen. It helps a lot with wind buffeting and has greatly dropped the wind noise levels. This screen is not perfect and will not eliminate all wind and noise, but with all other reviews I have read from more expensive and other viable options, this screen is up to par. I like the look and style, it is not gawky and distracting from the bikes good looks and is fairly close to design as the stock windscreen. I am very pleased with my purchase and would recommend this to anyone. I have driven with this screen for over a month and am very pleased!
