Icon Airmada Rubatone Helmet
I've had several icon helmets before mostly alliance line. The airmada has a "tailored" fit to me and is much lighter due to the shell size matching your size fit. Super nice, great venting for an economically priced helmet!!

So far I'm very happy with this helmet! Fit, styling and features are all top notch for a mid-priced entry helmet.
I have a long oval head and right out of the box this helmet was a sigh of relief for me! Snug all the way around and on the money sizing, the only wiggle is around my cheeks. But with adjustable padding that's an issue that should be easy to solve.
Venting is great, and even with all of the front vents closed I can feel the Venturi effect drawing air off the back of my head! Very nice for when I'm trying to reduce noise (wind noise is noticeably less with vents closed) at freeway speed. Wind noise is noticeable, but so much less than the last helmets I've had that I consider it a huge improvement.
Really enjoying not having starbursts in my view whenever I ride at night (which is often), field of view is pretty wide, I barely see the sides on peripheral head checks.
All in all a great find, I'm very happy with this so far.

Had this helmet for a few weeks now,
Very Durable Helmet and Airflow is great!
Perfect for people with more of a Oval Shaped head!
No break-in period with this helmet.
I've seen a lot of complaints about the visor hard to prop up.
Yes it may be a little tough than many other helmets but in the case of a crash I'd prefer the visor that'd be secure. Although if you press the visor outwards it's pretty easy to get it up.
Only Con I would say you may have a tough time turning your head looking at blind stops/directly behind you depending the kind of riding jacket you wear with it. Other than that it's a perfect helmet!

Best helmet for long oval head.
Best helmet Ive ever owned. I have owned a shoei and a scorpion in the past and this by far is a more quality helmet then both of those IMO. Also the only helmet that actually fits my long oval head, which is not really that long. This helmet fit in a large just perfect and my other helmets were extra large because of my head shape they fit front to back but were too loose on the side. Not sure why more companies dont make helmets shaped like this. I would like an open face in this shape but no one makes them. Anyway rant over, if youre considering this helmet buy it. Great finish, a little loud but I wear headphones so it doesnt bother me, very soft and comfortable inside. Its either this or a aria that costs almost triple the price. Icon for the win!

Good for starting, not good for highway
The helmet was the first helmet I've ever gotten. The fit was good and I was very happy for my everyday commute. However, once I started riding on the highway I realized how loud this helmet really was.
Already I'm looking to upgrade. Would not recommend if you plan on going fast.

Im new to riding and bought this helmet to start wearing once I get a bike. I wanted it for the graphics to be honest the safety value seemed pretty high and overall its a good looking helmet. Air flow is nice at higher speeds would recommend cracking the visor up slightly to get more. Living in florida full face is always hot. I bought the glory edition and must say it was a great decision. While I love this helmet I would recommend someone new to riding to buy something like hjc for the weight. Icon airmadas are heavier as ive talked to other riders who agree with me. Once you wear it a few times the weight lessons and you become use to it. Overall id give it a 10 for looks and quality there isnt a stitch out of place.

Worst Icon Yet
I have been happy with the last two generations of Icon helmets and ASSumed that this would be an improvement over the last, well I was wrong.
Fit is extremely tight getting on and off and while you would think this would lessen noise, it doesn't.
Shield whistles, it's not a tight seal.
Ear pockets are so small that my very thin scala rider speakers touch my ears, which do not fit into the ear pockets and are normally scrunched.
And the biggest complaint, there is no thought, not even a consideration towards a glasses slot. You will destroy your glasses trying to get them behind your ears with this helmet.
I wouldn't even sell this secondhand to someone, it would be cruel.
