Icon Airframe Construct Manic Helmet Those of a certain age may recognize the snarling chin bar grin from the ICON archives. Gone are the fiesta of colors, the greens and reds and yellows that made the Manic such a hit with the K-5 crowd. What is left is a pure skeletal form that reveals the Manics true colors. A glossy bone matrix overlaid in black lines of nightmarish demarcation. Frantic scratchings of one possible future. The Construct Manic an ICON 1000 interpretation of beast mode. Features All world standard, meets or exceeds the following DOT FMVSS 218(US), ECE 22-05(EUROPE), SAI AS1698(AUSTRALIA) SG(JAPAN) safety and testing standards. Does not ship with SAI or SG certification stickers unless purchased in that country Special 'Naked' Finish Fiberglass/Dyneema/Carbon fiber shell Wind tunnel tested and refined Imported Helmet ships with both Clear and Dark Smoke faceshields

This is basically my first road helmet so I have nothing to compare it with. The helmet I did have before this one was to big so I really needed an new and well fitting helmet. Before I purchased this helmet I contacted Revzilla about size and fitment and also read all of the reviews about it. I gave them the size of my head, 21 1/2" roughly, and they told me that I needed an XS! I wasn't sure because according to the size chart I was basically in between a XS and a SM. They told me to get the XS because the padding would break in eventually and it would fit better. When the helmet arrived I tried it on to see how tight it would be but it fit perfectly. I love this helmet (granted I have no comparison) but it seems to be a light helmet and the wind noise, well, to me its a helmet and it is subject to high speed winds so it is inevitable to have wind noise. I can't say it if it is excessive or not because once again I have nothing to compare it to. So I would say go a size smaller with this helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.
