Icon Airmada Ganesh Helmet
Great summer helmet, great graphics
This helmet feels light and flows a ton of air. It looks exceptional. It's comfortable to me and I found that common complaints about a wind whistle are entirely blown out of proportion. I tried all vent configurations at 80mph, looking left and right in the tucked, straight up, and 3/4 positions. It's slightly loud but I couldn't make it whistle, even with a replacement shield. The Ganesh graphic is very aggressive and stylish too. The colors have depth and the artwork is intricate and detailed.
Now that I've covered the things i like, there are two huge issues i have with this helmet. First, there are no round speaker cut-outs on the inside of the helmet. I understand that its a 'race fit' or whatever, and it's a minimalist philosophy design, but this is almost a standard feature in helmets that cost a lot less. Second, no option for a chin curtain means that it's going to be a problem in the winter. For the amount of money that this helmet costs, these two features should have been considered.
Despite those oversights or deliberate omissions that would have made this a 5 star helmet, I would still reach for this helmet first on the hottest days because it is so comfortable.

I got the med size and had a really hard time getting it off but didn't return it cuz once it was on it fit solid so I'm glad I kept it after 2 weeks of riding everyday it comes off a lot easier now had a bird hit the shield last week and it held up fine no cracks very glad to have it.

Such a great looking helmet for the price. comes with multiple vents for air flow to keep you cool in warm weather. the unique design is eye catching and stands out among other helmets out there on the road. the screen stays closed no matter how fast you ride thanx to the metal pin that keeps it in place. the fit is very snug once you first start out to wear it due to the thick padding (which is a plus in my book) but give it time to break the helmet in so that it feels more comfortable.

Snug fit, cool graphics, good airflow
My last helmet was a bell vortex which, while generally great, looked HUGE on my head. Being the vain guy that I am I ordered this so as not to look like a bobble head. I'm super happy with it. Good airflow, no fog, lighter than the Vortex, looks cool/cheesy (which I like). It's VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU MEASURE YOUR HEAD PRECISELY. You will NOT fit into even one size smaller, guaranteed. Also your first three or four days riding will be a little cramped until it breaks in (also initially putting on and taking off are difficult). After that it fits like a glove and is fantastic!

Great helmet, fits a little snug around the cheek area due to "race fit"
Absolutely love the design and features of this helmet, my only complaint is the snug fit around the cheeks, but I neflected to inform myself prior to purchasing that this is a more "race fit" style helmet & isn't intended to be easy on- easy off. I'm sure you could purchase aftermarket cheek pads to resolve this issue, if you even find it to be one.

Great product but runs small
I ordered the red version and it looks great in person. I had an older Md Airdframe I was replacing so I ordered a Md in this one too but it was super small so definitely order a size up. Other than the sizing the helmet is a great value and looks great too. Definitely a good purchase.
