Icon Airmada Rubatone Helmet
Great helmet, incredible value, but noisy
Almost everything about this helmet is exceptional for its price point. Very comfortable, great field of view, exceptional airflow (a must in Texas summer), great looks and lightweight compared to other $200 helmets. Haven't hit the pavement yet, but I'm inclined to trust its protection due to the ECE rating. Also, it's the only helmet I found that fit me perfectly for less than $500.
The only downside of this helmet is the noise. Past around 50mph the wind noise is overpowering. Oddly, clicking the visor into the sealed position only makes it worse. Haven't done much riding with the vents shut, but that doesn't really help either. Bottom line: to fully protect yourself, wear earplugs with this helmet.
Would definitely buy again, unless some miracle put me in a financial situation where spending an extra few hundred dollars to do away with the minor inconvenience of wearing earplugs was worthwhile.

Awesome helmet, my second Airmada!
I just bought this helmet for my girlfriend to wear. I already have an Airmada helmet and I was so happy with mine that I bought her the same one in the Rubatone finish. She loves it and so do I. Tons of airflow, sleek look, lots of functionality and vents. No complaints!

Great helmet, tight on the cheeks
This is a great helmet for the price. It has great airflow and a stylish look. My only gripe is that the default cheekpads are very tights. They do sell additional sizes which you'll probably have to look into. Otherwise its a great helmet.

Killer look with great feel
I added a green mirrored face shield and it really makes this helmet look BEAST! When riding the air flow through the helmet keeps my head dry. The comfort of this helmet is great and with the light weight of it, makes riding a blast!

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.

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.

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.

Great Helmet and Company!
I have always rode Icon and was wearing one when i had my motorcycle accident a year ago and the helmet definitely protected my face and head. Great looking helmet and very fast shipping. I would recommend revzilla to anyone looking for accesories and I will always ride Icon.
