Bought a silver mirror replacement shield for my Variant and I can't believe how poorly it fits. Replacement is awkward and difficult and the shield doesn't seal/close properly. Totally disappointed in Icon's poor quality.

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. 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

Bought a Variant and a silver mirrored shield. Replacement shield doesn't fit right and one of the inner vent covers completely fell out of the helmet before I even had a chance to wear it on my bike. $415 for two pieces of garbage! If you're gonna spend that much for a helmet and shield, it had better be higher quality. I expected more from Icon. Be warned!!
