Icon Airmada Rubatone Helmet
Talk About BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!
This is my first helmet and I have to say I love it. It has great airflow to your head, the shield changing is quick and simple, and the fit is just right just make sure you follow the sizing chart.

Like it? LOVE IT.
Awesome helmet. I'm a daily commuter down here in FL, and I ride a Vulcan and a CBR; I use this helmet for both and they both look great. Good air flow (as the name suggests) and great weight ratio. Style is great, I put a new optic lense on the front and it works. Just make sure you order the SPECIFIC BRAND ONE. I made this mistake and had to wait.
My only problems are these:
-tends to whistle, if you don't mind that, then ignore this point.
-Sometimes, it's too air-y (if thats a word). Not recomended for the cold, unless you have a balaclava (which RevZilla offers a wide and useful range.)
All in All? Buy it for the holiday season for a good first, second or third helmet. It works,and they'll (or you) will be happy.

I have had my Rubtone for a while now and have never written a review, but i just wrote one for the AGV 5 Continents K3 I got and for the fact I like this helmet more for its features I thought I write a review about it.. I have had my Airmada For a while now and i have to say it is a great helmet for everyday riding. Tons of airflow, very comfortable and I replaced the Cheek pads for some bigger ones recently and it feel perfect on my head! The pin lock is a great feature for the price as well!! Plus anywhere you go every girl that sees it wants to touch it because of how soft and smooth the Rubatone feels!! lol.. If your purchase this helmet you wont be disappointed!!

Great Sub 200$ helmet
Low sided at 70km on the street, this helmet did a great job taking the impact. A little noisy at faster speeds, but then again its a sub 200$ helmet. Lots of features for ventilation, although unless your bald or focus really hard you cant feel the cooling. Rode everyday for about 8 months straight, no problems with the helmet. Fit is normal, over all great helmet!

Great Value with Great Features
I've only had the helmet for about a month but I am happy with it is so far. It definitely has good airflow but it is a little noisy especially at high speeds. I would definitely recommend ear plugs with this helmet. Looks good, feels good, and should protect me if I need it to.

I hit a deer while riding to work early one morning, going about 65mph. My Vmax took the deer out, but I hit the road. Hard. the leather jacket saved my upper body, but the Airmada saved my life. I was knocked out upon impact, but received no head injury. (Brain included). Just some big scrapes all over and lots of lost material on the back of the helmet (did not scrape through the material).
It had decent airflow. I rode a Vmax, so I had no fairings to stop any wind, so I am rating it fair since I couldn't feel much. Upon closing the vents, the air was stopped, but with no chin skirt, it was really easy to get cold in. VERY LOUD even with the vents closed.
It is, however, a very comfortable helmet. I do recommend this helmet, but will be gunning for the Airframe this go around.
Remember, it only takes one time. Always wear that helmet.

This is my first Icon Helmet and I really do like it, although there are some things that aren't so good. I have been having trouble with the shield sealing and it tends to come off the pin when doing left head checks at highway speeds. This helmet is a a pain to get on and off, it is really tight going on and the inner chin vents hit my forehead when i take it off. I love the rubatone finish but it is a hassle to clean (bugs make greasy marks all over it). I have worn this helmet in 90+ degree temps and it stays pretty cool while moving.

Icon airmada fits great
The icon airmada is the best fitting helmet I've ever tried. When I first tried it on it seemed almost too tight, but after a couple of rides it molded perfectly to my head.
It gives great airflow but is quite noisy.
