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.

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!!
