Good product!!!!!!Please, read all of this!!!!!!!!
Bought the rubatone, bought the gold mirrored sheild, bought the extra side covers for the windscreen, i bought gloss black ones cause they want 10 bucks more for anything "rubatone". LOOKS RAD! i just use the gloss black pair for my night time rides on the clear screen.
I have been using this helmet for about 2 months and its held up to my standards for a daily helmet. Keeps the wind out, keeps the rain out and keeps your head pretty cozzy. I have not broken the windshield locking compont yet and i change my sheild 2 times a day, atleast 3 times a week, has held up this far.
It is pretty quite...too quite infact that Im throwing in speakers but thats because im used to hauling A** on a dirt bike and all you can hear is the wind and the bike. Now all i hear is my own thoughts......which, theres too many to listen too during my all day rides or short 2 hour runs.
i see that everyone has the rubatone, seen quite a few other riders in my area with it. I wear an XL helment in everything, dirt bike helmets and full face street helmets, the fit feels pretty spot on but a bit small in the check area, might just be my head, but all the other xl's ive own fit perfect!
Im one of those kinda people who have a long skinny head, so thats my reference if your looking for one.
OH and I almost forgot, I cant remember cause its been a while since i've owned a "fullface", i just wore dirtbiike helmets for a lot of years, saved me money.
...........When I'm taking tight turns, at "tight" speeds, I;ve noticed that the top of the helmet blocks a bit of your "full speed ahead!!!!" vision, what i mean is it blocks your look up, even though your supposed to look down as to where you'll be in your lane of the road. so if your pinning it 'round the twisties, you'll have to "wait" to see whats next.....other than impending doom, you can see out of the sides like you wernt wearing a helmet!
Just wish the price was 175 shipped to my door.
If you buy a helmet for yourself, shouldn't it fit like it was for someone else? Incorrect, so why do I have to pay extra for cheek pads when it already comes with some, oh cause its not the right size, oh so i bought this helmet for you then, here take it.

This was my first helmet and love everything about it. Would buy another Icon helmet again.

Great first helmet
This is the first helmet I've purchased, and it's been excellent so far. Air flow is fantastic, even at slower speeds. No discomfort even after several hours of riding. The anti-fog coating on the shields work incredibly well (I've purposely tried to fog it up and it stays clear).
My only complaint is that the shield change mechanism isn't especially easy to use. I wear prescription sunglasses most of the time, so I just keep the clear one on at all times.
I installed a Sena SMH10R and the speakers and side controls don't affect the performance of the helmet at all. Even with my glasses, there's enough room for the speakers behind the cheek pads for everything to fit comfortably.

I was very happy with the purchase. Shipping was super fast and the helmet came well protected! Very happy and I would highly recommend RevZilla to anyone!

Perfect step up for me.
I've been wearing an Icon Alliance for the last couple of years and liked it a lot, but maybe my head swells in the summer or something, but it was getting way tight and uncomfortably hot as summer came on. Also pretty scuffed up. So! Time for a new bucket.
The Airmada seems to be an update of the Alliance, with similar styling, features and price. And because I have a long oval head, the shape is right for me. After reading up on it, I decided to go up a size to a large and that was a smart move. It's still snug but getting it on and off isn't such an ear-twisting pain in the... ear.
What I like:
More air flow for these hot summer rides. Much improved over the Alliance.
Wider vision. It really does make a difference.
Easier vent controls, and lots of them.
Noise level. It's quiet enough that I go most days without earplugs. I like to hear SOMETHING when I ride.
Fit is long oval. Us funny looking people need love, too. And a good fit.
So, after a 2100 mile ride over four days, I have a lot of things to whine about (can you say Monkey Butt?), but the Airmada ain't one of them. I hardly noticed it, and that's what it's all about.

Very comfortable helmet for a long oval head
I've only recently gotten the chance to try out this helmet while riding, and It's my first helmet so take this review with a grain of salt. The helmet is true to what they said in the video, it is a long oval head shape which is perfect for me. The sizing was right on with the video's sizing, and with the sizing chart. The airflow in the helmet is good, it hasn't felt too hot while riding at all. It is a snug fit, but it still feels comfortable. The visor doesn't fog up while riding, and it lifts up and down pretty easily. Overall I enjoy riding with this helmet and I'd recommend it to anyone with a similar head shape.

This Helmet is a great buy for you money!!
I ride my bike on the freeway 50 miles to work. A lot of traffic and a lot of big rig trucks. So that means rocks flying around. The face shield on the Airmada protects me from them and not only that I live in AZ where its VERY HOT!! and yes riding with this helmet does get warm but not hot where I'm suffocating. As I'm riding I can feel a little cool breeze coming in from the vents. So good airflow through this bad boy. Very light for your head. Also very quiet!! This helmet is a great buy for you money. Money WELL spent on this product.
