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. 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

I love this helmet. It looks awesome, it breaths well, it scares children. This was my first helmet, so I don't have much to compare it too except my new helmet I recently got. The Icon flows air really well, the interior is soft and plush, and it doesn't feel all flimsy like other helmets I tried on.
I've owned two Variants. The first one had a problem with one of the visor screws getting stuck in the helmet. The screws are made from a soft metal that will easily get cross threaded, or over torqued when changing shields. My suggestion is to just hand tighten the screw, and use the tool that is supplied with the helmet to just unscrew them. Icon replaced the helmet for me, and I have had no problems with the new one.
Overall, I'm extremely happy with the helmet, and would highly recommend it to anyone.
Yes, I recommend this product.
