Icon Airmada Stack Hi Viz 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.

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.

when i first purchased this helmet i was really happy with it.... that was because i didn't know any better. the fit and finish is horrible. i set the helmet on the ground and it rolled on to the top of it and scratched the vynil. that is small potatoes though. my big concern is i purchased this helmet less than 3 months ago and already the ruber gasket around the base of the helmet has come off 3/4 of the way. now i at first didn't care because stuff happens. i emailed icon and they informed me they were going to send me a "helmet safe adhesive" as the CSR said. so a week later of not being able to safely use my helmet i get a package from icon. i follow the instructions and attempt to repair my helmet only to have the gasket not stay on where i placed the glue. then i noticed the smell and paid close attention and noticed they literally have bought a small tube of super glue and have stuck an icon lable over the super glue brand lable. this is my second icon product i've had that has failed. i would not suggest anyone purchase from this company. after emailing icon back voicing my concern and discontent and how i felt they have no regard for customer safety they were no longer willing to help and told me to contact the retailer. Which is not close by at all. So I now have to mail my helmet to the retailer and can't ride or drive over 3 hours to exchange it where I bought the helmet. It's a very frustrating experience so far.

Awesome Airmada Helmet
Great helmet so far. Have been riding with the Icon Airmada helmet for the past month.
- the fit, I have a large oval-shaped head, usually XL or 7-1/2 in hats, but after reading reviews and measurement guidelines, went with the L. Fits Great!
- the style, all black shiny. great looking style to match my black M50 cruiser.
- the comfort is pretty solid all around, the padding is nice, no irritating pressure points
- the airflow feels nice when riding, thanks to the multiple vents
- the view, pretty good, no blind spots
The helmet doesnt smudge too much, or does not fog. Comes with a nice protective bag from icon.
I strongly recommend.

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!

I crashed in this helmet before. Saved my skull for sure. So I bought another. It has the Oval shape. I have a long thin face. Helmet fits tight and comfortable. Best features are the covers that go on the side of the visor. Makes it look a lot smoother. Also there is a metal clip that holds the visor down in place. I had a helmet before where the wind would push the visor up when shoulder checking at high speeds. This will never happen with the icon. The graphics look really cool. It's great that icon let's you choose from so many colors and options for this awesome helmet. Only reason to might buy is if you have a very round and fat head. Probably wouldn't be comfortable.
