Icon Alliance Dark Helmet

The murdered out Icon Alliance Dark Helmet is ready to fade into the shadows or disappear into the night. The non-reflective matte black Rubatone finish and included Dark Smoke ProShield give you a monotone look that goes well with...just about anything. Plenty of venting, a moisture wicking Hydradry liner and DOT, as well as ECE, safety certifications means that the Alliance Dark gives you tons of premium features without a premium price tag.

  • Fully removable/washable Hydradry interior
  • Quick-change fog-free proshield with sideplates
  • Prolock shield locking system
  • Wind tunnel tested and refined
  • Molded twin channel supervent for increased cooling
  • Rear exhaust ports prevent heat buildup
  • Removable molded breath deflector reduces shield fogging
  • Chin venting system reduces shield fogging
  • All world standard, meets or exceeds the following: DOT FMVSS 218 (US), ECE 22-05 (EUROPE), SAI AS1698 (AUSTRALIA) and SG (JAPAN) safety and testing standards. Does not ship with SAI OR SG Certification stickers unless purchased from an authorized dealer in that country

Note: The Icon Alliance Dark Includes both Dark Smoke and Clear face shields

Icon Alliance Dark Helmet 4.6 5 267 267
Best bang for the buck! I've had this helmet for just over a year now and am still very satisfied with it. The liners are exceptional, very soft and comfy, especially when compared to other similarly priced helmets. However, compared to a Shoei or HJC helmet I've worn in size large, the cheek pads seem to be a little more snug than those, so be aware of that. Ventilation is good, but that's to be expected with the big opening right by your chin. I installed a Shoei chin curtain (which fits perfectly) and it made the helmet much more high speed friendly, but it will cut down on airflow quite a bit since the vents aren't really that awesome. The Rubatone finish looks great when new but is a major pain to keep clean due to it's rubberized texture. Not impossible, but it takes more effort. The shields (it comes with two) are nice quality and easy to exchange. Fogging is mostly non present except when quite cold and only when I have the chin curtain installed. Even then it only happens when I'm stopped and clears right up once I start going again. Overall this helmet is aces. I can wholly recommend this as a budget helmet which is much nicer than most others in it's price range. Even with a $15 chin curtain added, it's still a huge bang for the buck, especially with the two included shields. November 19, 2015
Great Full Face Without Breaking the Bank I have ridden with a wide variety of helmets from skid lid to full face of the years, and i have to say that the comfort fit and finish are very nice with the Alliance.I purchased this as a fall/ early spring helmet for more protection from the elements. I have been riding in 32 degree weather in the morning, and 59 degree weather in the evening and found that in both cases the helmet was comfortable. It is fairly quiet at highway speeds, and honestly i want a little road noise and to hear the sound of the pipes. the fit and finish on the helmet is pretty nice. The design is eye catching and simplistic. The rubatone finish feels soft to the touch, but i could see this scratching over time. The interior pads are very soft on the face. The microfiber is very comfortable on long rides. This helmet will really squish your face when you first get it. It breaks in nicely and now fits like a glove. 2 Shields are a nice touch, and i like the look of the side-plates. They are a bit of a pain in the butt to get off, and like another reviewer said, felt like i was going to break it when i was pulling them. The face shield is difficult to get over the retention pin when trying to raise the shield from fully closed position. A bit of an annoyance, but i can over look that for all the positives. I holy fogged the shield once, it was at a stop on a 32 degree day and 90% humidity. It cleared fast when i started to move due to the awesome venting. I highly recommend this lid. is it a $900 helmet, no...is it worth the price of admission...yes and then some. November 16, 2015
My new fave This helmet is Great. I have not had it long but I will say this is my new favorite. This helmet is stylish if you are into the murdered out black style, but the fit is great and it comes with the clear and dark shield. The price for all that is offered is great. The fit seems true to size. i wear a large in all the other icon helmets and this one is no different. the only draw back is the white liner shows dirt easy, but you can wash it so not a deal breaker. ALL in all i suggest this helmet to everyone. November 14, 2015
No room in ear for accessories. Icon could have made a little more room around the ears so I can at least fit one of my headphones in without feeling like it's being pushed into my brain. Overall, it does what it's meant to do. Keep you safe and for a budget price. Not to mention it looks nice :3 November 12, 2015
Nice helmet My fiancée was really happy with this helmet and can't stop raving about it. November 9, 2015
Great helmet Great helmet. I would have guessed this helmet could cost a whole lot more than it did. Great look, quality, and comfort. Sena bluetooth kit fit right in, and the smoke AND clear visor was a great bonus. Overall very good helmet, highly reccomended November 2, 2015
Great Price, Great Fit *This is my first helmet and I have roughly 12 hours in it* I left the "Noise Level", "Weight", and "Vision" sliders at neutral because I have nothing to compare it with. FIT: I have a round oval, narrow head and measured just over 22". I ordered the small and it was very tight and left a hot spot on my forehead after 15 minutes. Ordered the Medium and the Small cheek pads and fit was snug but better. Now that my MSF course time is over the helmet feels very comfortable and is broken in. It seems true to size I am just unfortunate enough to land right in the middle of small and medium. LOOK: Helmet is cool. Definitely got some compliments already. It's a rubberized skin so it is soft to the touch and matte black. Pretty much like the sidewall of a tire. I like simple but different and this fit the bill perfectly. ACCESSORIES: Comes with (2) shields, (1) clear and (1) smoked. Change out is pretty easy, but in the future I will buy a helmet with the integrated sun shield and clear visor. AIR FLOW/NOISE: Unfortunately we only get up to about 15mph on the course so I cannot comment on this. It has chin vent that flips up and two venturi vents on top both of which can be opened or closed. it also has (2) vents that are always open on the sides. I did a lot of research to find the right shape helmet for my head and I am very happy with the quality and value. November 2, 2015
If nothing else, purchase this helmet When I first got my bike, I did my research - I read as many helmet reviews as I could. Being on a budget too, I decided to pull the trigger finally on the Icon Alliance Dark. I could not be happier. While the fit was initially a bit tight, the innards have since molded to my head shape and size (very much a round shape). Though I haven't had a chance to test out the helmet yet (thankfully), I am pleased to say that it feels sturdy and passes all DOT and ECE standards. It's pretty hard to find a helmet with this amount of safety for this affordable price point. While riding, I have never fogged up the visor. Airflow is great - but the flipside is that I get a whole lot of wind noise. The visor can also be difficult to pull up due to the Prolock system, but I guess that means the visor won't suddenly fly up when I need it most. All in all, a great first helmet. If you're looking for starter gear, this should be your first purchase. October 28, 2015

Richard B: I've been looking for a new full face helmet for a couple weeks. I've read reviews on the Bell Vortex and HJC FG-17. Roughly $200 to $210 with dark shield. Saw this review here, I was going to order a flat black helmet anyway and thought this was a great deal on the ICON, dark shield included. I've never purchased from RevZilla before, but they have free helmet returns if not satisfied and they gave the ICON Alliance a good review. Looks like a quality helmet inside and out. Feb 7, 2015
Andrew P: Matte Black color, Feb 3, 2015

Eric S: Based on reviews. Great helmet and smells good at first. Oct 31, 2014
Charles B: After trying on helmets at a few local stores I knew this was the best choice for me. It's extremely comfortable, packed with features, and hands down best bang for my buck. It doesn't have high viz properties, but I will add a custom reflective decals for night riding. Oct 30, 2014
Jair S: Needed a copilot helmet, best value. Oct 27, 2014
Cory R: Smooth, bold, and elegant all at the same time. The flat black color is less prone to show scratches and looks nice with any of ICON's selection of shield colors. Oct 17, 2014
Michael W: Saw the video and looked like such a kool helment and has all the perks you would be looking for in a helment for only 150 bucks. WOW. Oct 7, 2014
David L: Nice and lean look Oct 3, 2014
Adam E: This will be my first full face. I've always heard good things about Icon, and I prefer the flat black finish. Two shields was also a big selling point as well as the shape. Sep 16, 2014

Jorge G: Quality, Style, and price! Aug 19, 2014
Ashley M: Color style and ability to remove core/ dry wick! Eish it were a little less... $70 would be more reasonable. Aug 16, 2014
Glenmore L: Highly recommended on multiple websites with good insight. RevZilla DOES try and up-sale a bit with products and usually fails to mention cons, yet the overall summary of what I've learned about this helmet from multiple sources is that you should own one wether it is your main helmet or otherwise due to VERY successful anti-fogging features, protection, price, and fashion. Aug 16, 2014
Erik M: The many positive reviews. I have been a Shoei user and wanted to try out a new helmet. Aug 14, 2014

A shopper asked: I noticed that it is cheaper to buy the matte black alliance and a dark smoked shield. Then I thought about the side plates. Does the dark helmet set come with two sets of side plates? Also if you have two lenses do you need two sets of side plates? Aug 12, 2013

Chris KStaff: Yes, this is technically true while inventory remains on the Icon Alliance Rubatone helmet. The standard price for that helmet was $170, but since it is on closeout, it actually undercuts the Alliance Dark. When purchasing a new shield you only get the shield, the sideplates do not come with it. You can, however, change the sideplates over from shield to shield. Aug 12, 2013

Dark face shield comes like extra in the packege.

At first it was a bit difficult and scarry to get sideplares off the shield. But after some time they click out just fine. And trust me, you want to see what happening behind the sideplates when you putting the shield on.

I got myself also a yellow face field. It looks great and works very good at night and/or cloudy weather. A combination of matte black and yellow, gives that helmet a cool (ghost) look and at the same time a little retro feel.

Said A asked: Can you tell me about the shell size of this Alliance (in small) vs the shell size of the Airmada (also in small). I live in a very windy country, and ride a bike with no wind fairings, so neck fatigue is an issue. I want the most streamlined, smallest/thinnest helmet I can find. Between the two, which fits the bill the best? Aug 16, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Carlos C: While I dont have an Airmada, I did run an Airframe for a considerable amount of time. I know from the Icon folks the Alliance was founded off the principals of the Airframe. That being said I dont ride anything with a fairing either and I loved the aerodynamics of that helmet.

I am now commuting about an hour back and forth to work on a vintage GS1000 and I am using the Alliance as my main helmet and so far it has been right up there with the Airframe as far as comfort in and out of wind. It's a little louder than the very quiet Airframe but comfort is good. I also have neck, well more back issues and this is important to me as well. I hope this helps a little.

Cameron G: Well, from what I've heard and know, they run a size smaller, so I ordered a large alliance which is basically a medium. But they both have the same padding and material.

If you are hit head on by a vehicle, or you hit a tree there is not much any helmet can do for you depending on the force of the impact and situation.

Sergei S: Hey Andrew,

When I bought my Icon Alliance Dark Helmet, in was a bit tight. After some time it takes a shape of your head and becomes wery comfortable.

Personally I would choose a medium. It's more tighter. It gives that more secure and safe filing. And doesn't look big on your shoulders (like a alien head).

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (1) No (0)
Christian I: Mine was a little tight when I first received mine. After you break it in it should be a little more comfortable and come off easier. if it's interfering with the riding I would say go up a size but you want it to be slightly tight in case of an accident. so if it only hurts coming off then keep it and it will break in soon enough.

Long L: My head is a 21 so I purchased a small and it fits really well. It isn't tight enough to where it hurts my head but it's also not super loose.

First it fits tight on my cheeks. But it has losen up a bit. There enough space for my ears. It is very comfortable. And ventilation is great!
I have a very secure feeling with that helmet. I went about 160-170 mph on my bike, and helmet feld very stabile.

I think you should take a size L. It will by more stabile.

And I bought also a yellow proshild. It looks great (ghost like) and at night, it filters traffic light relaxed, what is more relaxed for your eyes.

A shopper asked: Is there inserts/room for a communication/audio system inside the helmet? How is the wind noise? Any weird whistling? Also the peripherals.. how is the visablity? Jan 27, 2015

Ralph S: I haven't personally bought a communication device for it yet. However, I believe the design gives more than enough room for a communication device.

It's a pretty quiet helmet. The shield locks in pretty good, which, I think minimizes unwanted whistling.

You will have full range of visibility with this helmet.

All in all, this one of the most comfortable helmets I've tried..Hope this information helps...

Benjamin C: Yes. it works very well. i installed the SMH10R from Sena and it works perfectly. Noise is minimum and people can hear me perfectly. You should consider the space it will take the speakers and mic inside the helmet so make sure you don’t purchase one that hardly fits.

Helmet sizes are very reliable so take that under consideration when purchasing the helmet

Paul H asked: How Dark is this helmet? Can you see the rider inside if the shield is closed? Sep 3, 2014

Colt M: It is just like wearing a pair of dark tinted sunglasses. Daytime riding is not a problem - You may get into trouble riding at night in areas that are not well lit. I have ridden at night where there were ample street lights, and I did not have to worry about anything like a deer running out in front of me. Actually, it helped with bright HIDs, and drivers who forget to turn their bright lights off, but you will lose your peripherals - You will not be able to see anything that does not have light shinning on it.
