Looks great, as someone mentioned earlier, the gold does reflect back your own face at some light levels. I find it easy to ignore and focus on the road. The gold is a bit dark for night riding or tunnels, but again, it is manageable. If you plan on doing lots of night riding, this probably isn't the best visor for you. If you're primarily riding during the day, then this visor is great.
Yes, I recommend this product.

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

This is a great helmet that fits like other Icon helmets. It has exceptional air flow and is incredibly aerodynamic despite the visor. With about 2,000 miles with the helmet, I have noticed that it is a bit louder than other helmets I have used. I have not installed the neck skirt that comes with it which would probably cut down on the road noise substantially. On durability, the rubatone black scratches easily.
Yes, I recommend this product.
