Icon Airmada Stack Helmet
This product has great fitting.
The Icon Airmada helmet is a great one. It has great weight and size ratio.

AIRmada is truly airy, not to mention sexy
Air flow is really there! It is my first helmet, so I don't have much to compare it to from personal experience, but I can absolutely feel the air rushing in on my forehead and chin when I open the vents. According to my boyfriend, who's had several helmets, that's a big deal :)
The helmet takes a bit of muscle to get in and out of, but once on, is comfortable. The shape of the helmet isn't quite right for me - it's more narrow (as Icon is famous for), but good enough to give me a safe fit.
It's marketed as being "quiet", and again, not having another helmet to compare it to, my review may be biased, but frankly I don't find the helmet to be particularly quiet - seems average compared to other helmets I've tested out. There is a slight whistle depending on how I turn my head - but I also haven't yet tried it out while riding on my own (only as a passenger) which can absolutely affect noise level.
The shield can be a little tricky to open with one hand - and I tend to accidentally close the chin vent when doing so, but perhaps I just haven't figured out a good method yet, and isn't a big detractor. It does latch down securely, which is nice.
One thing I'd like to see Icon change is putting the XS helmet in a XXS shell size, rather than the Small shell size. Airmada comes in 4 shell sizes, one of the reasons I went with this helmet, because I have a tiny little head and looked like a bobble doll in other helmets. But the XXS helmet was too small, so I went with the XS - it fits my head, but again the shell size looks large on me. Then again, it fits and will keep my noggin protected.
Overall - great helmet!

Best helmet for the money.
One of my first helmets and it's been great! It's a little loud sometimes but it gets the job done. Probably the best helmet you can get at this price.

Outstanding helmet for the price
Absolutely love this helmet. I have a long, oval shaped head and it fits perfectly. Airflow and style are outstanding. It looks really BA with a dark smoke shield.

Great helmet for the price!
Got this helmet after I highsided and cracked that helmet and this helmet actually makes me feel safer due to its nice snug race fit. Everyone compliments me on the color and style of the helmet. Noise level isn't super quiet but it's not loud at all and the vents are good but they could be better but overall it's a pretty great buy.

Glow in the dark not only look great with detail. But it helps me be seen by other drivers when they are staring.

Good helmet! My second Airmada.
This is my second Airmada helmet. I've had my first one for 2 years but I had to replace it because the rubber rubber/plastic piece on the bottom came off mostly because I was dumb and left it out all day in the sun on my bike in the Hawaii summer/humid heat. I guess it melted the glue holding it to the helmet. I tried to glue it back on but it was a messy fail.
Besides that, this is a very good helmet for the price. I love the rubatone finish on this helmet. I had the black gloss previously but the rubatone looks way better! The helmet is a bit loud over 60mph but it is nothing ear plugs won't fix. The helmet does fit true to size but the opening is a bit small and taking it off sometimes is a struggle but in time the comfort lining does loosen up so it isn't that bad. The visor system is a bit of an annoyance but I rarely change out visor so it is a minor issue.
If you are wondering if it can hold a communications system like a Sena 20S, it can but you might have to position the speakers more towards the front of the helmet you or will have have some discomfort since there isn't much space between your ears and the speakers.
I love Icon products so that is why I bought another one but also I really didn't have a budget to go over $200 for a helmet so If you are looking for a good sub $200 helmet, pick up the Icon Airmada!

Had it for a month, but the rubber lining already started peeling off and I had to super glue it back on. The whole thing fell off. Looks pretty ratchet now. Probably be getting a different brand for my next helmet.
