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 with the Icon Variant . 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

Excellent fit, runs slightly large, padding is more comfortable than my Arai. Slightly heavier than most is my only negative.

One thing to get straight, and it's a positive if you're 90% street. It's not a motocross helmet! It's a sportbike helmet made to function like a dirtbike helmet. My only negative aspect of the helmet is that it's slightly heavy. Other than that, I love it. I ride a supermoto and have the all white with a gold shield and the styling is literally a head turner. The bubble shield not only looks good but it's functional as well. Excellent peripheral visibility. The visor blocks out the sun (unlike a regular sportbike helmet) and it doesn't catch wind!! Aerodynamically refined to make buffeting almost a thing of the past. I was really surprised. The venting is great and the fog free shield works pretty well. The best thing about it is how quiet it is! Even quieter than my Arai. Icon really did it right with this helmet and I couldn't be happier.
Yes, I recommend this product.
