When you first un-wrap this lid, you can't help but smile like its your high school graduation. Icon has done it again with it's incredible design! the "Tempt Fate" & "Cheat Death" text you'll see on the sides will give you a sinister grin and makes you want to pull on the throttle. Also you'll notice the "No Rest For The Wicked" script on the top, exclusively for other riders to see when you're tucked behind your windscreen. Comfort is a huge feature for riders and Icon has really hit home with their Airmada series. At first, it'll feel snug, but soon you'll break in the pads and it'll feel out to be a great lid. It isn't heavy at all and the view of periphials are a plus. Very wide view so you can get a glance of the traffic surrounding you and the actual optics shied is a thumbs up. The clarity makes you feel like you've had the shield up the whole time. Now the airflow is a unique feature this time around for Icon. Possessing 3 key points on the front, you can slide up the airflow channels and get a cooler more comfortable ride. Icon really looked out for the riders who sweat under their caps and with the lip vent, forehead vent and crown vent, Icon makes the Airmada series a serious competition on the market. I highly recommend this helmet for beginners and veteran riders all around! I got mine in red and matches my red CBR6RR and sits right on top of the tank. Everyday I see it I can't help but cheese and I'd want riders to feel the same when they get this lid!

Best looking, most comfortable helmet I've come across.
I got it in red and it looks 10x better than in pictures. The artwork is phenomenal. Airflow is great, more vents on it than you could imagine. Use the fitment guide, measure your head and choose the size, it was a little tight for the first week but after breaking it in it's a perfect fit. After using this helmet for a few weeks now I would recommend it to anyone. Definitely worth more than it cost. Revzilla shipped it very fast and completely protected. Also, it came with a tinted shield and a clear shield. Most other sellers only include the clear.

My first helmet, no complains
This is my first helmet, and overall, it has been great. At first, as others have indicated, it feels a bit tight, but it definitely breaks in very quickly. It is easy to change visors from clear to tinted. It was great that both a clear and a tinted visor were included. There are numerous ventilation options. Two near the mouth, and two above the eyes. the helmet fits snug enough and firmly enough that it is sometimes easy to forget to strap it. The graphics are very unique and cool, and I've yet to experience any notable vision issues.
One small issue that I've noticed, and is probably common with all full face helmets, is that sometimes on cold days, condensation can gather around the bottom edge on the visor. It is not significant and doesn't impact vision, but it does seem to happen.

Love this helmet
Wasn't sure about it when I first got it, seemed very tight. As I have rode with it, it has grown on me. Got it in red to match my bike. Vision is great, cooling is good. Would buy another

I'm happy with the purchase
This is my first helmet for my first bike. My opinion may not hold much weight. I got the helmet in the mail. Tried it on. It was unbearably tight on my head. I read the reviews though, and a lot of people said that. I gave it a week, rode with it. It slips on and off now. It doesn't feel heavy on my head, I can literally hear the air whistling through my helmet. It came with a tinted mask but i don't really use it. It has cool graphics, I get tons of compliments. Compared to other helmets on here I thought it was cheap. The helmet is pretty simple. I don't need all the bells and whistles yet. Very comfortable. I would recommend it. It's better than my friends and he's been riding for years.

extremely good value
Bought and used this helmet for my Washington state training course which is all under 25mph and my head didn't get sweaty despite the 6hrs in 70-80 degree weather. The ssatin rubberized finish is uniform and durable feeling. The pattern is awesome, fits very nice and the liner padding and material is extremely comfortable. Its a little rough going on but only due to my gauged earrings. Once its in it has just the right amount of room. Highly recommend this lid.
