Icon Airmada Parahuman Helmet
Great product and awesome price
This is a light slick looking helmet. The skull graphics and ICON logo look great and are a crowd favorite. I bought the gold reflective shield for it and it really boosted the looks. Everyone loves this helmet.
Just a word to the wise it does fit narrow. I wear XXL in all other helmets without problems but ICON fit very snug. I bought the 3XL pads and it made a HUGE difference.
As far as performance I ride with a Sena 20 communicator all the time. It causes quite a lot of noise but I feel no pull from the wind at all. I have used an open face and modular but both caused a little pull and not nearly as well built as this bad boy.
My only gripes are the metal pin that locks the shield down is annoying. I usually just flap the shield down and don't lock it. It will add a touch of noise but no big difference. Also, when doing a shoulder check the side panels for the shield block my view a bit. You really have to turn a far way. None of these gripes are deal breakers at all.
Buy this helmet unless you are willing to spend the extra bucks for something like the carbon version.

Top shelf helmet!
I'm gonna start from the unboxing. I couldn't wait to get this helmet on. At first I could barley get it on my head! Very tight in the beginning. Whatever you do don't let this scare you off and return it. I wore the helmet for a day and a half and now the helmet fits perfect! Trust me, it's very tight in beginning but will loosen up and fit perfect... I got the red para human. Pictures don't do it justce. This thing is a head turner! The metallic in the sun with the different color reds looks sweet! Of course you can spend 7 to 8 hundred dollars more and get a better helmet but Icon hit a home run with this one! I will definitely buy this helmet again. Very well made!

can't wait to try it!
Talk about super fast shipping. I'm in Europe at an APO address which usually takes about 7-10 business days to get here. I got this in 3. Phenomenal! I haven't had a chance to try the helmets airflow an noise level yet as I am waiting on my 2015 Ducati 899 Panigale to be shipped here. Will update later. Revzilla's has got all my future business.

Awesome helmet and design!
This helmet is great and looks awesome. I always get compliments on it. The air flow is great with all the vents it has. The quick release makes it super easy to take on and off the visor. Only issue I had which was mainly my fault. The check pads on a large were too tight to my cheeks. I had to get 15mm cheek pads to acomadate my chubby cheeks aside from that I would deffenitly recommend an Icon Airmada. Great helmet!

Stylish protection at entry level cost
I bought this helmet primarily because it looked pretty sleek and was priced really well for someone just getting into riding. When it comes time for a new helmet, I will be tempted to buy another one of these. It does not seem much heavier than my friends all carbon fiber helmet. You have good control over the airflow in this helmet. There are plenty of other colored visors available - I made sure to have both a clear and a dark smoke. One important thing to note about this helmet: it requires a break in period. I bought the appropriate size for my head. It fits perfect now, and has a serious amount of neck support. But the first time I put it on, I thought I might need to have it cut off my head. It probably took a solid minute to get it off, and my face and ears were bright red. Definitely check out the video reviews on this helmet. Two other minor complaints / things to be aware of. First, the gloss scratches easily, so if you care about how the helmet looks you'll have to be careful handling it. Second, changing the lens can be difficult, with the plastic side panels on the lens. They don't feel like they were meant to be popped on and off a lot. I feel like the plastic retainers will snap off eventually. You can buy a separate set on revzilla for your second lens, but it's more difficult to attach the lens to the helmet when the plastic panels are on and you can't really see what you are doing. Not a deal breaker with this helmet for me though. Overall really good comfort and protection at a reasonable price.

Great style and aerodynamics. A little heavy for long rides
Pros: styling - I get compliments about the looks of the helmet everywhere I go
Aerodynamics - excellent, even when you I turn my head the wind doesn't bother me
Air flow - excellent and all the clips and sliders are easily opened even with gloves on
Cons: weight - for city riding the weight is not an issue, but I had some neck soreness when I road 300+ miles in one day
Shield seal - not horrendous or bothersome but some air does get in through the gasket. Seal could be improved if shield was spring loaded and pushed itself back as it came down

I really like the helmet feels lighter and more arodynamic than my scorpion Exo 750 and beter visibility
