 Icon Alliance Speedmetal Helmet
Icon Alliance Speedmetal Helmet
Icon Alliance Speedmetal Helmet It was once said that slow is good - but we all know fast is better. And so it is with the Speedmetal. The next generation of full coverage tonality from the Icon Alliance mind. A deviant interpretation of life beyond societies norm. Tracks spiraling out of control from the deepest thoughts of a riders mind on to their helmet. Tracks reminiscent of backbone - the kind of backbone found in spirited riders. Indeed...fast is always better and the Icon Alliance Speedmetal Helmet does fast. 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 unless purchased in that country. Injection molded Polycarbonate shell Wind tunnel tested and refined Molded twin channel supervent for increased cooling Rear exhaust ports prevent heat buildup Internal on/off cheek exhaust switches Removable molded breath deflector Chin venting system reduces shield fogging Fully removable/washable HydraDryTM interior Quick-change fog-free eye ProshieldTM ProLockTM secure shield locking system

Purchased the XS -- my head measures to 1/4" right in between the XS and S, so was advised by the excellent RevZilla customer service to go with the smaller size. XS is very tight, especially around the cheekpads, making it initially difficult to take the helmet off, but I can already feel them giving a little -- so, right size. Overall, the helmet fits very true to size, the ventilation is good, and it does a decent job at noise reduction.

I like the fit and the style: as other reviews said, they run tight and sit relatively low (that's a good thing, IMHO). Quality in terms of workmanship seems to be good and the protection seems to be decent: strong, thick leather, cannot judge yet how well they hold up to abrasions (I hope I won't have to find out) -- the foam pads on the hips extend to the top of the thigh and have a pretty solid feel to them.
One big problem I have is with the knee protectors. They are either oddly placed or oddly shaped. One of the knee protectors started cutting in above my knee and causing a fair amount of irritation. Moving it around in the pocket doesn't really solve it, in part because it just won't stay put in its position in the pocket. Also, there are several rough seams on the inside of the legs that become irritating after a while.
All in all, I'd give them a marginal endorsement, mostly based on style, fit and quality.
