I tried on the Airmada Stack and was immediately sold. Based on fit and comfort alone, this helmet is worth the purchase. I went from an older Icon helmet design (Mainframe) straight to the Airmada, and the difference was astounding. The materials are top notch, and the fit and finish of my "Stack" colour way in Red/Blue are superb. The helmet liner is very soft, and the thick neck roll feels great and helps the helmet hold securely even when looking back at speed. About the neck roll... it does feel tighter at first because its designed to hold you better therefor makes the opening smaller than what you may be used to (like me and my Mainframe for example). But don't even worry about it. Once your head pushes past the opening and slides into the rest of the helmet, you feel at home. Its a great fitting, great feeling, comfortable, and secure helmet! Another area in which this helmet excels is ventilation. Even at lower speeds I can feel air coming through and it feels great! There is no "chin curtain" on this helmet, but it fits your head so well and that neck roll makes such a nice seal, that I honestly don't think it would make much difference. Some people have mentioned that the graphic panels that attach to the visor are doomed to fall off at speed... I say not likely! They are easy to swap between your different visors, and if you take your time and make sure you do it right, they fit so tightly that they aren't going anywhere. The Airmada has a very wide FOV (very wide!), and I noticed how good it was the first time I went for a ride with it on. Visibility is fantastic. Also, the new visors are perfect: no distortion at all, easy to lock down, and those suckers will not fog up. All in all, I should have bought the Airmada when it first came out, because for the price it offers so much style, comfort, and quality that wearing something else is just silly. I'd buy this helmet again in a heartbeat.

Icon Hooligan Denim Jeans A gap in traffic, an empty on-ramp, a lonesome parking lot. These opportunities are a call to fulfill the hunger to hoon. The Hooligan street pant is designed to be the perfect accomplice. Heavy-duty denim chassis, reinforced Aramid knees, and Field Armor knee impact protectors complement each other for the ultimate street pant. With the addition of external zippers to remove the knee armor at any time, you can be at your destination looking innocent, leaving only burnt asphalt and a fulfilled adrenaline fix behind. Features ICON RELAXED FIT DURABLE DENIM CHASSIS EXTERNAL SEAM ZIPPERS FOR EASY ARMOR FITMENT ABRASION-RESISTANT ARAMID-REINFORCED KNEES CE CERTIFIED FIELD ARMOR KNEE IMPACT PROTECTORS (REMOVABLE)

I have from Revzilla the Icon Hooligan in grey. They are very comfortable and stylish, are well made, and for about the same price as regular jeans offer way more protection. That's all there is too it, really. The knee pads fit in their pockets very well and don't move around even when you walk, which is a nice detail I didn't consider until I wore them. Everything about the Hooligan pants is spot on, save for maybe some tail-bone protection, but I'm not even sure that's a real issue with riding pants these days. I caught a glimpse of myself in a window walking away from my bike, and even with the knee pads still in place, these pants looked incredible. If you're going to wear jeans when you ride you may as well get these pants because they do everything jeans do, and protect you in every way jeans can't.

Icon Turnbuckle Glory Gloves Sometimes the best way forward is back. Craftsmanship and technologies, once abandoned, can be reexamined and repurposed. The Icon 1000 Turnbuckle uses such refound tech to its advantage. Custom knit forchettes, circa-OG MX gloves, provide uncompromised fit feel. When paired with a French cowhide chassis and fingertips, the Turnbuckle provides a handheld barricade against asphalt intrusion. D3O armor integrated into the main knuckle furthers the riding legitimacy of the Turnbuckle platform. Whats old is new again. Features D3O Armor in knuckles Abrasion resistant premium grade French cowhide chassis Knit nylon finger gussets Perforated panels for increased ventilation Secure wrist closure keeps glove in place Pre-curved palm and finger design

I Ordered the 1000 Turnbuckle in the Glory colour-way to go with my 1000 Elsinore Glory boots, and what a winning combo that turned out to be! I have had a couple different pairs of Icon gloves and liked them a lot, but the Turnbuckle took Icon gloves to a whole other level for me. The colour and design is so classic yet the quality and fit are cutting edge.
The leather in the glove is beautiful and incredibly supple; I felt confident at the controls the second I laid hands on the grips. Then, once at speed, my typically sweaty hands were greeted with refreshing airflow down the sides of my fingers, keeping me dry and comfortable. One feature I really like is how the wristband on the Turnbuckle pinches in a little. This feature, added to the adjustable wrist strap, makes the gloves feel very tailored and premium - they fit like a dream.
I consider myself to have slightly below average palm size so I tend to not order gloves online. Of course, Revzilla eases any worries about sizing with their return policies so I ordered without any hesitation. When I tried on the glove for the first time however, I was very very happy. The fit is incredible (and feels tailored, like I said), the materials feel so nice against your skin, there aren't any seams threads tags folds or anything on the inside of the fingers or anywhere else that could bother you or make wearing them a pain. This is a fantastic glove.
In terms of protection, well I'd only be speculating. The D30 on the top is unobtrusive even when gripping your bars, but since the whole glove feels so soft and form-fitting, it's hard to imagine how much protection they actually have. Maybe this isn't a criticism towards the gloves but a nod to Icon's ability to marry the protection we need and the premium fit and style that we want more and more... If the 1000 Turnbuckle is still available in the future in new, trendy and classic colour-ways, I don't think I'll be able to resist!

Icon Elsinore Glory Boots The Elsinores five-strap, alloy-buckle chassis, stamped metal heel plate, and internal steel shank combine for a serious dose of moto-x homage. The traditional Goodyear welt construction mates the ICON street-specific sole to the magnificent leather upper. A medial entry zipper, allocated from Paratrooper jump boots, is the only luxury the Icon One Thousand Elsinore will allow itself. A modern relic from an era when men were iron and tanks were steel. The Elsinore, old-school MX reinterpreted for the urban sprawl. Features 12 TOP GRAIN LEATHER UPPER GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTION ICON CAST METAL BUCKLES ICON STAMPED METAL HEEL PLATE HEAT PRESSED LEATHER SHIFTER PANEL HEAT PRESSED MOULDED LEATHER SHIN PLATE INTERNAL ANKLE PROTECTION AXIALMETRIC STEEL YKK ZIPPERS

Wow, what a riding boot! I knew what to expect from the Elsinore through Anthony and RevzillaTV, but when I held them and wore them it was a whole new ballgame.
Super tough, impeccable style, fantastic build quality. My "Glory" colour-way are hand numbered 026/100 and that little detail in itself was quite a surprise. I wore them out and about before riding in them to get them broken in a little and acclimatise myself to a tall boot; the response from strangers and passers by was overwhelmingly positive, and it's understandable, just look at them! Colour, cut, details - everything with the Elsinore Glory is bang-on and you can't avoid speaking about them to even non-riders! They win.
In terms of fit they are perfect, and as Anthony says, no surprises there from Icon. They fit true for length and in my opinion may be on the narrow side regarding width. At least I think so, because I typically wear a narrower sneaker and the Elsinore fit in the same fashion. The zipper is awesome, the ankle bone cup is comfortable and you don't even notice it in place, and the boot really makes your feet feel secure when it's properly done up.
This is an outstanding boot in terms of style - it's unequalled. The great thing is though, is that it's so well made and offers a serious level of protection with premium materials and construction. I have been recommending this boot to all riders in my closest circle, if not the LE "Glory" colour-way then the other versions for sure. Epic boots; worth every cent!
PS the 1000 Turnbuckle "Glory" gloves match these boots to a tee!
Yes, I recommend this product.
