Great First Helmet! Being somewhat of a novice rider, I haven't had the opportunity to try out more than a few helmets. This one by far was the best. I decided to buy it after showrooming at a local dealer. All the other helmets were super tight (I wear an XL) and this one was snug, but comfortable. Love the vents while riding, and it just looks plain cool:) April 17, 2014
Great helmet Race-like fit, great air flow. Easy to clean inside padding. One of the best helmets out there. April 15, 2014
What a sweet deal!!! Looks bad a@@ and fits perfect. Time for me to get a second one for my wife. April 7, 2014
Great Helmet!! I came into this helmet from a really cheap HJC. The fit is perfect and it looks so sharp! Now I have to wait for all this snow to go away before I can try it out. I can imagine it will continue to impress! You can see and feel the quality of this helmet. Great buy and a very high quality helmet for a good price. February 20, 2014
Great looking helmet So far I love this helmet. It looks great and is very comfortable once you get it on. The helmet is snug, which is why I am glad I took the recommendation of others and ordered up a size since I was towards the top end of Medium. The chin vent is very easy to use with gloves on, while the top vent I had a hard time finding while I was riding. I put the dark smoke shield on the black Airmada Salient and it pairs up very nicely. The helmet is great and doesn't "grab" your head during high speed head checks. Overall this helmet is great but would recommend getting one size larger due to how it fits. December 30, 2013
Extremely High Value The Airmada is tons of helmet for its price point. High-speed head-checks are a non issue and I have yet to experience any buffeting at freeway speeds after nearly 1,500 miles of use. It really is all encompassing which is a great feeling to have on aggressive back country roads on the weekends. That said, airflow is amazing. I'm still amazed at how dry it was after long summer rides. It doesn't seem to cook while idling in traffic either. Fogging hasn't been an issue and it gets humid and cold in Minnesota. My one major gripe is the lack of a chin curtain. I didn't think I would really notice this, but I've had a few too many mosquitoes and other stray insects join the party. All in all. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great helmet whether they're in the market for an entry level lid or something more premium. It does many things well. November 8, 2013
Great feel, look, airflow, and features I got the black and white version and it shipped quickly and I was very excited to get it. When I pulled it out of the box it looked way better than expected! It fit perfectly with the sizing chart and adding the dark smoke shield made it look even better. The padding inside is soft, comfortable, and snug! Its a tiny bit difficult to get on and off around my ears (my ears are not big) but I prefer that so I know it stays on and wont move around in the unfortunate event I crash. The airflow feels great in the hot Texas sun. Sure it gets a little hot sitting still but get moving and its just fine. I fully recommend this product September 24, 2013
Looks great and feels good! As the other reviewers have mentioned it is a little tight when putting it on, but once it is on it feels good. I wear a size small normally but am at the larger end so I followed the advice of other reviewers and ordered a size up - medium. September 16, 2013

Mark S: What I loved most was the styling. After looking at all the sport bike helmet this for me was the best. Then the color scheme (RED) was fantastic, just enough red not to drown the design.

Juan I: I am a huge fan of Icon products. They have yet to let me down. I have had an icon airframe for the past years and it was a great helmet. I hope that with this icon helmet the great ventilation and fit continues. Aug 8, 2013
A shopper asked: Thinking about buying this helmet. I need a little information on the fit. I'm a woman with a head size is 55 cm/21.5 inches. I'd say my head is longer than it is wide. I recently had bought a Shark Vision helmet but had to return it because the chin guard was only a fingers width from my chin/lip. How is the sizing on this helmet? What size do you guys think I should go with? Any help would be absolutely wonderful!! Mar 31, 2014

Emily H: I tried on a friends Airframe and based my decision off of the fit of hers as well as wearing a different size of a different brand all together. I wore a friends medium and tried on my friends XS and that's how i based my decision to get a small. I think that the two should fit very very similarly and you should have no problem. :) Aug 27, 2013

Juan I: I have found that the Salient is very tight around the cheek area at first. It's a bit snug to put on but after a few times the pads start to mold and soften up a bit. If your unsure of your size, just go with Revzilla's chart. I have found it to be spot on when it comes to finding what size to go with. Aug 19, 2013
Reply to Juan Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Vietsana S: The fitment should be the same if you have tried on at a local shop. Unless you are going with a totally difference brand/make and model. Because S/M/L/XL comes different in fitting. And remember there is a break in time frame depending on how often you wear it. Aug 19, 2013
Reply to Vietsana Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Patricia S: My experience was using the size chart, which it will be a tight fit to put on.
I believe the snug fit helps with the noise quality. If you were closer to the higher end of the size, you may need to determine whether you need the next size up?

Casey S: Yes they should fit similar...however going from a airmada helmet to let's say a airframe they may not fit the same because of the different shell sizes they use. Airmada helmets do fit to the sizes on the chart...enjoy I sure am with mine! Aug 20, 2013

Chris M: Sure does! Absolutely love mine. I used the Sena Bluetooth and it worked GREAT! Definitely a great helmet. It's a third the price of my Shoei RF1100 but better in EVERY way. One thing to consider though, you definitely want to order a size bigger than you're probably used to. I wear a small in the Shoei, but this is snug in a medium (or I could just have a weird shaped head) Apr 9, 2014

Matt S: This helmet comes with a clear face shield only. I purchased the very dark one when I bought the helmet with extra shield end covers, and it works awesome on sunny days but too dark for night. I have recently purchased the Chrome mirror face shield and love it, perfect for when I ride to the gym after work and sun is going down and can see well enough when It is dark as I am riding home. Plus looks badass! Little kid made my day yesterday complimenting the helmet. Hope this helps your decision. -Matt Apr 11, 2014

GREGORY D: Yes. I wear two different types. Plastic Ray-Bans which have thicker construction and metal ones which fit even better. I ware my helmet tight and its fine. By the way the Icon Salient is a better helmet than my Arai or Shoei. Better construction and so much quieter. Best Greg de Marchi. Sep 23, 2013

Brad B: I know it's not sunglasses friendly, since it is very snug fitting and there isn't a slot for glasses in the side padding. It would have to depend on how small and flexible your glasses are. Sep 22, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Alec M: Don't know the weight. Wasn't a factor for me. However, I no longer use this helmet since I commute and the helmet is a really snug fit. Getting the helmet on and off becomes an annoyance if you commute a lot. Once on, the helmet fits fine but the opening is much smaller and it's a tight squeeze to get it on and off. It's a slick-looking helmet though but it's not very practical for everyday commuting IMO. Mar 18, 2014

Jonathon F asked: My question is not about sizing, since I'm sure I will be a medium according to the size chart. My question is in regards to the shell size itself. Would it be considered a bobble head size like the Bell helmets, being large and chunky and possibly interfering with your gear (such as a speed hump)?? Or is it on the more compact and sleek end of the spectrum like the Arai helmets? Thanks in advance! Feb 19, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris M: Definitely NOT a "bobble head" helmet. In fact, quite a bit more narrow than my Sheoi that cost 3 times more! Actually, in my opinion, superior to the Shoei in pretty much every way. I will tell you though, in my Sheoi and other helmets before that I wore a size small. In the Icon I wear a medium. The opening in this helmet is much smaller than the other helmets which helps keep the wind noise down quite a bit. The interior of this helmet in a medium fits like my size small Sheoi. Seems to be the most fog free helmet that I've had so far. Has vents all over it. For the bang for buck, I definitely won't feel the need to buy another $600 helmet again! Get it, you'll like it Feb 19, 2014

Santo O: Its more like an Arai helmet. I am a mdeium in all other helmets and i bought this in medium and wouldn't fit had to exchange it for a large and that was very tight at first i hope this helps. Feb 19, 2014
Reply to Santo Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Casey S: Defiantly on the more sleek compact side as far as helmets go. I've had this helmet for a year now and love it. No bobble head feeling like bell like you mentioned. I will let you know that they are a snug fit getting on until they get broken in but it becomes a non issue. You will be happy with this helmet, I was. Feb 20, 2014
Reply to Casey Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Francisco M: The Helmet is for my girlfriend, and I don´t use the helmet.

So, I think is like Arai (compact)

A shopper asked: Looking at the size chart, I see some discrepancies. If I use hat size, I should get an XXL. If I use head circumference, I should get a L... I'm assuming I have a pretty long oval head. I can't find any stores close to me that stock this thing to try it on... which one should I try first? Oct 14, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Alec M: The Salient is a much different fit. I had the Alliance previously (medium: based on head circumference) so I got the Salient in medium.

Tradeoffs: Salient, as advertised, has less mass (shell size) and is a cool-looking helmet. Good peripheral visibility as well. However, it is a snug fit and getting it on and off takes a lot more effort. The shell opening at the bottom is much smaller. On short rides, the fit seemed right but as I found out later on longer rides, the pressure from the snug fit made my head hurt. This didn't happen with the Alliance (same size).

I think the head circumference measurement is most reliable. I measured out on the high end of the medium scale range. If you measure out similarly high on the large scale range, perhaps an XL will be more comfortable. If your measurement is on the low end of the large scale range, then a large may work for you. IMO, the Salient is a medium-oval fit so if it's too snug and you have a long oval head like I do, you may feel the effects of the pressure on longer rides. Your ears will also take some punishment when you take off the helmet.

Another option, if you can afford it, is to consider Arai's Signet-Q which claims to be a true long-oval shape. I got the medium and the fit and comfort level is much better for my head shape. Obvious tradeoff: a couple hundred bucks.

Matthew K: I went by hat size. I wear a 7 1/2.and I bought a large. Fits perfectly. This helmet definitely fits long oval. Tough on and off but that's the style. I love this helmet. Vents awesome and is fairly quiet. Oct 14, 2013

Lukasz L: I would get xl because the helmet has cushion pads inside so if your head size is really L then XL helmet from this icon line should fit well Oct 14, 2013
