Icon Airframe Ghost Carbon Helmet
Just got mine in the mail yesterday and love it already. Packaging was nice and well put together, the box it came in represented the price of the helmet. It wasn't some cheap box with an expensive helmet inside.
Helmet comes with a nice carrying bag, a few stickers, and a cloth w/ spray bottle to clean the face shield. It didn't come with any glass cleaner though which was a bit surprising, but it is inexpensive and readily available anywhere. The yellow shield comes pre-installed, I also bought a dark smoke shield to go along with the helmet. Which was included in the box and came in its own plastic sleeve.
After getting the helmet out of the box and trying it on. The fit seemed very snug but not uncomfortable(keep in mind this is my first helmet and have nothing to compare it to). My head measured 23.25 inches and I purchased a size large. The shield locks securely in place on the bottom and the vents are easy to open/close with gloves on and easy to find.
Shortly afterward I began the process of changing the shields out. Taking the original shield off was no problem, the locking mechanisms were relatively easy to open but did not seem like they were flimsy or would open easily at highway speeds. Removing the face shield and the black covers(cant remember what theyre called) was easy. However, getting the new shield on was a totally different ballgame. It was more difficult than I expected it to be. Eventually, after some swearing, I was able to get it in. It came down to manipulating the hooks when the lock is in the open position. The helmet looks awesome with the dark smoke shield!
Being the first helmet Ive purchased and have not had a chance to ride with it yet, I cannot speak about protection, durability, air flow, and noise level. I will update the review once I have ridden with the helmet on.
Overall, Id say this helmet is definitely a good buy and would recommend purchasing from Revzilla. Delivery was timely and as expected without any delays.

Love the look and feel of this helmet!
Amazing! Love the looks and feels of the Rubatone.
Tactical visor adds the perfect element, although I will most likely be switching it to my tinted visor.

3XL is really small
I really like the look of this helmet. I wanted it to work, but it just was not at all comfortable. My head is 24-3/4" I ordered the 3x and it was way small. Hurt the front and back of my head and the chin strap was to short. Revzilla was great sent it back got a 2x Shoei Qwest Passage Helmet fits perfect. True to size.

Best helmet ever owned- better then my old HJC helmet
This helmet is great. Enhanced visor is bad butt. Visors are hard to change but still very cool design- gets easy once you get the hang of it. I was going to put a batman sticker on my helmet but once I saw it I had to respect the beautiful art work out in to this helmet:) best helmet I ever had.

Great Helmet - A little expensive
This helmet is execelent although a little on the expensive side. I like how light it was and the amount of air that flowed through it. Couple cons would be the amount of road noise that comes through the helmet and that I only had it for six weeks before i wrecked. Glad was wearing it because here is a pretty hefty gouge across the front.

ive had mine for a while now, it looks wicked ive got a green tinted visor on it the yellow one worked well i just prefer tinted one. the only down side is the noise nothing ear plugs cant fix, i had hoped it would be rather quite but once you get to 100kmh its pretty noisy still love it though, my helmet got a little lost on the way to new zealand but rev zilla were awesome about it and got back on track right away really helpful and awesome products.

This helmet was a great find! Easy take-off put-on lens, great snap fit interior and not cheap snaps like other helmets, snug and secure fit when helmet is on making you feel safe, gold mirrored lens is sick (currently on helmet), great feel of lens when it its up a little bit, it doesnt feel chinsey or loose. It is firm holding its position you put it in and GREAT VISION.
The cons: It does get a little noisey at higher speeds because of the good airflow, lightness of helmet and face shield caps, and when you lock the shield on the tab, it definitely locks and will not fly open, making a difficult time opening the shield. You really got to work at it to release it from the tab.
Great helmet with a secure and safe fit. Great purchase on my end and I will be looking forward to more of Icon's products!

This product is great!
This is my first helmet and I made a great choice. It offers some good venting for air flow and fits great around your head making you feel totally secure and protected. After a couple of days of riding and a little sweat into the helmet it fits perfectly! The yellow vizor is great for both nighttime and daytime riding. If you have sensitive eyes, wearing sunglasses for added protection against the sun would definitely help with the yellow vizor. Overall I would highly recommend this helmet to anyone who wants a protective and badass looking helmet!
