Icon made the switch in 2010 and all of the newer models (listed below) now take the ICON Pro Faceshield.

I ordered the dark smoke lens to ride in the daytime arizona sun. Works perfect! No need for sunglasses anymore. Also enhances the look of my helmet 10fold. A great addition if you plan to ride in the bright sun a lot. Doesn't make things dark, but cuts the sunlight effectively.

Not much to say about it. It's chest armor. It does what it's meant to do. A nice upgrade from my flimsy, thin foam chest pads that came in my Astars jacket. Feels solid to hit, but don't really notice its there when wearing, which is good. Looks great, but no one's going to see it anyway. In summary: a great upgreat to your jacket if you want some added protection from a fall or even just hitting up against the tank or handlebars.

First off, this jacket flows a lot of air, which is great for this summer. The jacket fits tight but runs a little small. I'm a more tall and slender guy so while the chest and width fits perfect, the arms and length are a lil short. something to keep in mind when trying sizes. The jacket looks great in person and feels amazing. I upgraded the chest and back protection to the bio armor and it slips right in and fits perfectly. Doesn't add much more bulk either. So in summary:
PRO's: Great looks. Flows tons of air. Easily upgradeable armor, and good features.
CON's: Slightly short fit for tall/slender guys in arms and length. Have to check elbow armor a lot as it tends to slide down arm after hanging up.

Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves - 2011 version With carbon protection and motocross inspired styling and comfort, the Alpinestars SMX2 Air Carbon glove makes an excellent choice for summer motorcycle riding. Utilizing an advanced leather and mesh hybrid construction, Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Glove offers the street rider superior comfort and performance while the carbon fiber knuckle and Clarino reinforced palm ensures high levels of protection. Lightweight hybrid leather and mesh upper construction offers the ideal combination of durability, abrasion resistance and comfort. Synthetic leather palm construction with Clarino reinforcements provides extra durability and protection where it is needed most. Reinforced landing zone with built in foam padding offers additional impact protection Sizing Note If you are in between sizes order a size larger, in RevZilla's experience these gloves fit slightly small.

These glove look amazing and fit very comfortably. No seams sticking out and bothering your fingers. They flow a lot of air and i have yet to get sweaty or hot hands. And thats saying a lot in the 90-100+ arizona sun. Great buy overall. However my warning to buyers is that the glove fits a little on the small size. Of course it fits like skin and will stretch a little to mold to your hands, but the fingers in mine were a little short. If inbetween measurements for sizing, go with the larger one. Also, as others mentioned, the mesh will stick to velcro easily so you have to be aware not to fray them. P.S. IMO The green ones look sick with kawasaki's.

 Icon Alliance Threshold Helmet
Icon Alliance Threshold Helmet
Icon Alliance Threshold Helmet So long, normality. Adios, last shred of reason. Hello, reckoning. At the very threshold of sanity there can be only one Icon Alliance Threshold Helmet. Correction - there can be only four Red, Blue, Silver and Pink. The strong point graphics on this helmet sweep over a tattered under graphic that compliments the Icon Hooligan 2 Jacket. But whether it is combined with the jacket or worn separately, this Icon Alliance delivers you to the edge of reason. Not only does this helmet deliver on graphics but it also delivers on features from the more ergonomic shape to a refined air vent system to a distortion free shield. All World Standard, meets or exceeds the following DOT FMVSS 218 (US), ECE 22-05 (Europe), SAI AS1698 (Australia) and SG (Japan) safety and teting standards. Does not ship with SAI or SG certification stickers unless purchased from an authorized dealer in that country Injection molded polycarbonate shell for strength Long oval headform Wind tunnel tested and refined Molded twin channel supervent for increased cooling Rear exhaust ports prevent heat buildup Removable molded breath deflector reduces shield fogging Chin venting system reduces shield fogging Fully removable/washable Hydradry interior Quick-change fog-free proshield with sideplates Prolock shield locking system

Love this helmet. Fits nice and snug to my head shape (do not get if you have a round head as this is more for oval shapes), and flows a LOT of air. Has 5 different adjustable vents to control airflow.Riding in Arizona where the temps are around 90-100+, this helmet is perfect. Can't say i've tested protection, but overall- fit is great has ton of airflow, looks amazing, and all for under $200! Bargain buy! I bought the green one and switched out the clear lens with the dark smoked lens. No need for sun glasses anymore! For reference, my head measured around 22 1/8" which put me between sizes sm and md. Customer service recommended to go with the small and while it was initally tight, it formed to my head in a few days and feels great now. So if in similar situation between sizes, don't go the size up on your helmet, go down one and let it mold to your head instead of wobble around.
Side Note: this helmet is on the larger side in outer appearance
