Icon Airframe Carbon Lifeform Helmet
After multiple neck injuries due to car accidents, I knew I needed a very light weight helmet and this one takes the cake. When I purchased it, it was the only manufacturer that published how much their carbon fiber helmet weighed so I went with the Airframe. I ride 30-45 mins every day to and then from work and never has it felt heavy. Everyone who gets up close to it, is really impressed with the design. LOTS of airflow and vents, had it for 3 years now, never a problem.

Worth every penny!!! Awesome helmet
First off, this helmet looks unbelievable. The craftsmanship of the carbon fiber is superb. Just the small, intricate details really sets this helmet apart from all the others. The super vent system flows a ton of air and literally sucks the heat right out the back! It is a little noisy but c'mon, I'd rather be cool n dry instead of feeling like my head is in an oven!! It's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. The rear spoiler really does serve a purpose. At high speeds or when it's windy, the helmet stabilizes itself and actually feels lighter. It feels like you're not even wearing a helmet! You do not get that thrashing motion during high speed head checks. What else can I say, I truly love this helmet!

First helmet seems to be quiet with easy to use vents that makes air flow control easy when riding. Visor is really easy to snap on and off to clean/change. overall i would recommend this helmet

Half helmet to full face helmet
This is my first full face helmet in about 15 years so my ratings may be a little bias. I usually wear a half helmet. The visability on the icon seems to be a narrow to me. Its a bit snug but then Ive only been riding with it for about a month now. It surprised me with how much airflow it gives. All in all I would recommend this to any of my friends.

I upgraded to this helmet after riding with AFX helmet and of course anything is almost better than what i had but this helmet is incredible! When I received the package it was very light and i couldn't believe there was an motorcycle helmet inside. The pictures on the website don't do justice to how good the graphics look and quality of the padding inside. This helmet is very expensive but i feel you can't put a price on the most important piece of safety gear that you ride with! This is a great investment and the airflow is awesome. I never have a sweaty head, the noise level isn't quite but it's definitely not loud. You'll be happy with this helmet.

Sick styling + light weight!
First off, this helmet is ridiculously light weight. My old helmet was a basic HJC and I could definitely feel the bulk of that helmet while riding; whereas, the lifeform carbon basically makes me feel as if I am not wearing a helmet at all. Also, my field of vision is a lot wider compared to my old helmet. Moreover, the venting on the helmet was done well, so air flow is not an issue. As far as features go, this helmet offers a strong locking mechanism for the visor, two strong vents, removable/cleanable liner and beautiful styling. Overall, this icon helmet seems rather durable; minus the spoiler because that piece does not feel like it can withstand a crash and come out in one piece. . My only con's for this icon helmet is the lack of noise reduction (helmet gets rather noisy when all the vents are open) and of course the price tag, but I guess I get what I pay for, which is super sexy styling with carbon fiber and top grade protection from Icon!

Worth the money
My first helmet was a cheaper scorpion helmet, which worked good but I wanted something better. I looked into the normal Icon Airframe and was planning on buying one, then I found this one. Even though the price is a little steep, it's well worth the money. Head checks are no hassle with this helmet, I didn't realize how much buffeting my scorpion helmet casued until I put this one on, its almost feels like you're not wearing a helmet at all. The only con I can think of is that it's quite loud with all of the vents open but I wear ear plugs while I ride so that is a non-issue for me. All in all this helmet is worth the purchase.
