This armor feels like it will provide much more protection than the standard armor fitted in my gear. It's also more comfortable.

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

My head size was right in the middle between Medium and Large. Revzilla recommended I go with the Large and it fits perfectly. Buffeting from visor is minimal when looking over shoulder at 60mph, certainly not enough to cause any problems. Difficult to notice the visor was even there most of the time, except when it kept the sun out of my eyes. Padding is comfortable and easy to remove. Removable chin curtain is perhaps a bit too big, making it tricky to drink from a camalbak while riding. Once removed, drinking on the move is easy. Overall, great helmet.
