Icon Airmada Bioskull Helmet
Coolest looking helmet on the market...
By far the coolest looking helmet on the market.
I like silver. Everything I wear is black, white, or silver. My gear is all black, my bike is silver and black, I wear a silver watch, chains, rings, etc. I like attention and I like to be loud and flashy. This helmet feeds that appetite.
It's a head turner and everywhere I go people comment on it.
It has a very unique almost holographic shimmer to it when the light catches it just right. Outstanding.
COMFORT & FIT:
As far as the helmet features and comfort, I'd mark them as just above average.
Liner is comfortable and removable.
Chin strap is easy to get on and off and doesn't irritate me.
NOISE & VENTILATION:
It's loud, but that's the trade-off if you want maximum ventilation. Wear earplugs. Wind noise can kill your hearing in just a few rides. I've never had a helmet that wasn't loud, but then again, I've never spent more than $275 for a helmet so wouldn't know any better. Ventilation is plenty and there is a lot of options to decrease or increase it to your liking. Adjustable vents on dome, forehead, chin, sides, and then two vents INSIDE the mouth area you can open in 3 positions each or close completely.
Optics look really cool. This helmet comes with BOTH silver/mirror AND the clear. This is great because the mirror is not very good at night. It gets a double frame of headlights at night and makes detail hard to see. Wear the clear at night and the mirror during the day as it has a nice tint to it (and looks the coolest). Nobody will see how cool you look at night, so wear the clear at night. These run for $40 a piece, so at only $25 more than the other Airmada helmets that only have the clear, you are getting a deal.
Beware: the visor will come off when you bring it up all the way if you bring it up even a little bit farther than this position. This is a major mistake by ICON as it could technically come off while riding if you raise your shield up all the way. It's not supposed to be able to do this without pressing the release buttons but does anyways. This has been verified as my other buddy who has a different Airmada helmet does the same thing.
Quick release and quick change is therefore a hassle and complicated. I'm a smart guy and good with intricate stuff, but this system is silly. Could be worse I suppose.
True to size. Get the exact size recommended based on your head circumference. It will be snug at first and you might wonder if it's too tight. It's not! Ignore reviews talking about too snug a fit. Give it a week or two max and it will feel custom formed to your head and perfect! Sizing your helmet a size too large is dangerous so make sure you get the right size based on the chart. Icon did sizing right!
I think for this helmet, it's somewhat fair given the complexity of the graphics. For the other Airmada helmets, I think they are overpriced. They should be $200 and the Bioskull should be $225.
If you want a decent helmet with good ventilation and has BY FAR the COOLEST design and graphics and you like to floss, show off, get attention, be in the lime light, loud, gaudy, and flashy, then this is the ULTIMATE helmet! You will NOT be disappointed with this thing...it's beautiful.

Great vented helmet
This is my second helmet. Roommate when down in my scorpion exo500. This helmet is way better. Vents a lot more and is quieter. Feels softer and isn't as bulky. My roommate keeps wanting to use it.

Awesome Helmet, but a bit too expensive at $280.00+
Excellent fit, comfortable, looks great and easy to clean. Overall an awesome helmet, but I do think its a bit too expensive at $280.00+

I'm a new rider but everywhere I've gone, I've received nothing but compliments on the helmet. Looks really nice in person, and the extra chromed shield it comes with is a great added value granted the price. As with most fitted things, it feels pretty tight at first ( I have a 7/14 hat size) but it loosened up nicely by the 2nd day of riding. It does fog even with the airflow vents as soon as you stop so that was kind of a bummer but overall very nice first helmet

Awesome Helmet Indeed
I have had this helmet for a month so far and it has been great so far. The graphics for one are absolutely sic and matches my Atomic Silver ZX14 dead on. It has very above average ventilation and visibility. Also not too heavy making it bearable to have on during longer rides. It did fit a little snug at first (so did my Icon Torrent at first) but after it's broken in it feels perfect so do get your proper size. Helmets gets lots of compliments. Didn't rate protection & durability because hopefully that'll never be tested.

Very nice Helmet
One of the coolest helmets out there specially when a light hits it, it changes color. Followed Rezvilla size chart and it was a Percfect fit. Very good quality overall.
