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. 

Features:

  • Injection molded polycarbonate shell for strength
  • 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

Saved My Life
I had this helmet for about 3 months before I hit a patch of gravel on a back road at about 55-60 miles per hour and rolled more than 80 feet. The helmet held up great and saved my life as I remember hitting my head real hard on the pavement. I've been recovering for about 3 months from a fractured ankle, real bad road rash , fractured fingers. But my head is perfectly fine. Icon made a quality product. I would recommend this product 100% if you are interested. Looks cool, Comfortable, and a real good bang for your buck. I'm also adding a link to a video of my bike after the wreck (It was totaled out by my insurance company)

One of the best helmets on the market
I've ridden a lot, approx 10-20k/yr depending on the year. I've fallen only with full face helmets, once with a shoei and once with an Icon.

I trust both brands equally, should be noted my icon took far greater impact with no impact to rider.

That said about this helmet, its superb. I didn't have noise or air problems until the helmet was > 18mos and a vent had broken. I find Icon tight fit to be quite comforting and easy to get used to.

I don't wear headphones with their helmets, I use bluetooth sena speakers with good success.

Great visibility, smoke is a bit dark at night but that's more my lack of lumens in the HD stock lamp I have now.

Overall, great helmet I'd prefer you not get it bc I like the sleek black, and full faces like this are rare. I prefer to not stick out, and not be too terribly distinguishable from yet another hooligan, therefore the flat black without emblems is great for my needs.

Again, I've put probably 35k+ miles on this helmet easily and have no complaints. I'm at the site right now to buy another one, this one is a bit old after such use.

I ride a Harley everyday, but also own a Yamaha FZ9 which this helmet has been used with both bikes equally well at really all speed ranges.

The best value around
If you're looking for the cheapest, best value helmet for everyday riding, stop reading this now and just buy the helmet. You get a dark visor, a clear visor, quick change mechanisms for the visors, plenty of venting in the helmet, comfortable liners, great protection, badass looks, all for an amazing price. After riding for a year, my gripes are:

-Loud. Wind is loud AF with this thing. I got used to it, but still, that's probably my biggest problem.

-Air flows almost too well... In cooler/colder months, the icy air will still cut through very easily with the vents closed.

-The quick change mechanisms are a bit annoying to use. You have to really wedge your finger in there to pop them and getting the visor back on can also be a pain.

-It only comes with one pair of side plates for the visors... So you have to pop them off and swap them every time. They feel like they're going to break every time. $15 extra for two pieces of plastic.

-Doesn't come with a chin curtain. You can buy one.

-The visors do fog up at times. They also aren't the clearest things in the world. Good enough though.

If you can deal with these things, the helmet is the best value around. And again, it looks badass. However there might be hundreds of other people around you wearing the same helmet because it's so dope.

Great Helmet!!
I have been riding in this helmet for some while now. Its a great helmet for highway and local use. The airflow is good and there's not that much noise on the highway. This was my second alliance helmet since i wanted one with no graphics and rubatone so this was a steal with the smoked visor that comes with it.

Great brain bucket
After giving the EPS a good breaking-in with my fist to fit my oval head. I found this Alliance Dark to be comfortable on long rides and it has a ton of features for the cost. I wear a full face for colder NE weather and the Dark doesn't disappoint there.....Both visors have been fog free, with the vents closed its warm and as temps come opening the vents keeps things cooled. All that aside.....this bucket just looks bad-axx.

basic done right
I like this helmet. It's a basic no frills helmet with nice venting. Two top vents, a chin vent, and two side vents. I didn't realize how well it vented till I got my head wet on a hot day and you can really feel the airflow. I've never changed the shield cause I prefer the clear, but it came with an additional tinted shield and instructions on how to change them out.

Alliance never disappoints!
I've used Alliance helmets for some time now and like the fit very much. They are very cool and well ventilated and the construction is very good. My only complaint about the Alliance is that the two vents in the chin are opened from inside the helmet with two very small knobs that are only accessible with the helmet off. Higher end Icon helmets now have sliders that can be activated with the helmet on. Icon should incorporate these in all of their helmets. Other than that, the Alliance helmets are very good.

Awesome for the price
To sum this helmet up I would say that everything about it is budget, but not cheap. It is definitely worth the price and the extra shield is a great addition. As a word of warning I used the size chart and when I got my helmet I was worried it was too tight, but knowing that some helmets tend to form to your head after a few rides I waited it out - and I have to say it fits perfectly now. It is a really comfortable helmet (I love the liner). And for anyone with glasses I'll mention that I do wear glasses and I haven't had any troubles there - though I'm sure some helmets are better suited to glasses, the padding seems to be flattening down a bit around my temples in a good way the more I ride.

Pros: It is very light - actually surprisingly light! It is really comfortable. I haven't experienced fog of any kind, actually the first time I took it out on my motorcycle it was early in the morning and lightly raining - even my glasses fogged up a bit but the helmet didn't at all! (though it was a bit hard to see with all of the rain drops on my shield...)

Cons: The vents are just cheap plastic and really nothing fancy. I also think the pin lock shield is a bit rough, but maybe it will wear in a bit more over time. I like to ride with the shield up as much as I can and I end up really jamming it up and down as I go around. The rubatone finish seems like it is a lot more scratch prone than a regular gloss. I thought it would be the other way around, but just the buttons on my collar are making small dents/scratches in the chin of the helmet.

Overall: if you only have a few bucks for a helmet I definitely recommend it. It feels great on your head and works as advertised - but you can tell they cut every corner they could while maintaining some quality. Some of the materials feel a little cheap and there are no features really, but what is really important (the shield, weight, fogging and comfort) it does better than some helmets twice the price.

Surprisingly a great helmet!
I have to say, I'm really impressed with the Icon helmet. I bought a size medium (what I normally wear), but ended up buying Large liner to fit my head and kept the Medium cheek pads, so the helmet is on the smaller size. I plan on retiring it for passenger use later on, hence I haven't exchanged it for a larger model.

I bought this helmet specifically because it came with two face shields, a smoked one and a clear one. Made my night time riding a blast.

Vents provide adequate cooling, I haven't had a single problem with the shield fogging up either. Only real con is that the chin strap could me a bit more comfortable.

If you're not sure which helmet to pick as your first, I definitely recommend this one, especially for newer riders.

Great helmet for a great price
This is a great helmet. Simple as that. I highly recommend it for the price. The only reason that it is not 5 stars is that the padding inside is not very soft. The pads inside seem to have very little give and are very firm. I assume that when I wear it more, it will soften up a bit. Other than that, it is a great helmet.

Didn't see it being mentioned anywhere in the reviews and video, so I thought I'd ask if this helmet has cutouts if I want to fit a Sienna Bluetooth kit in it?
Flurp S on Jun 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Pretty tight fit. My iPhone headphones felt uncomfortable!
hi. i ordered this helmet in a size small. my head circumference is a solid 22 inches. my cheeks feel squished and it feels a little snug but i am wondering if that is normal. just trying to find out if i should exchange for the medium?

this is my first helmet.

thanks in advance!
kristina g on Oct 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: the 22'' measurement is just a number,,,I'm 58cm and according to the chart I should wear M to Large,,,,,,BUT do to my head is not long but more round shaped, the large was so small I couldn't get it on,,,,,so if your head is thick or more round you should not get a Long Oval Helmet, but an Intermedi Oval or round shaped one,,,,
Weight?
Julio Cesar G on May 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I know this is probably a very crude number, because i just weighed myself then weighed myself again with the helmet, but the helmet with my sena bluetooth headset was about 3.4lbs according to my cheapo bathroom scale...
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?
A shopper on Aug 12, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
With the two face shields included, do they both have sideplates or just one set for the two of them?
Adam E on Sep 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Just 1 set for both.
my head size is between L and XL which one should i get?
A shopper on Jul 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I'm also between L and XL depending on brand, and the L fits me great on the Icon Alliance! I have a long oval head. Previous helmet was a L Arai Profile.
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?
Said A on Aug 16, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
I wear prescription glasses – will that be a problem with how this helmet fits?
A shopper on Apr 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have had difficulty getting glasses on under this helmet. The way the inner pads fit with my head, pushes the arms and lenses up on my face and head. Maybe with a looser fitting helmet you would have no problems.
Anyone have experience with this helmet in the rain? I've had my clear visor get a little foggy on a cooler night and was curious if anyone experienced this in the rain.
Nathan D on Jun 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes in the rain it didnt fog up on me. Underneath the visor is a little flap to open which helped my hot breath escape instead of building up on the visor. They also say they are fog resistant visors!
I'm a new rider and this helmet has tons of positive reviews. Does anyone recommend this helmet for long/oval shaped head? I'm having trouble finding a helmet that doesn't leave my chin hanging out.

Thank you!
Peter L on Feb 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Recommended for oval. I had the same issue with too round helmets. This is very comfortable. Highly recommended
