Icon Airmada Rubatone Helmet
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.

Very uncomfortable getting on/off
Ok, so first of all I understand that this is a "sport" fit, so it shouldn't be easy on easy off. However, as you see in the video there are two vents right above the chin of the helmet. These two vents are operated from inside the helmet. The switches are made of plastic and poke out from the inside of the helmet a bit. Just enough so that when I go to put on the helmet, they scrape my forehead. It hurts lol. Once the helmet is on it is very comfortable and I love it, but putting on this helmet and taking it off is something I very much dread. I'm actually considering taking a flat head screw driver to those vents and prying them off from the inside. I almost hate putting on the helmet because of the first 2 seconds of pain and the last 2 seconds lol.

Best bang for the buck
Good looking and cheap
Looks awesome with reflective shield
Matte scratches easily and looks dirty after a while
Can be loud
Thinking of upgrading to schuberth s2 or shoei GT air
This is a great helmet and all but my head is worth way more than $190

Very lightweight. As soon as you get the helmet on it is very comfortable. The padding is easy to remove and wash. Airflow is great as long as you are moving. The vents on the bottom can be opened from the inside with the helmet on and the chimney vent does a great job.
