  • Prolock shield locking system
  • Wind tunnel tested and refined
  • Molded twin channel supervent for increased cooling

Awesome helmet I bought this helmet to replace a heavy, fogging, narrow visibility Bell and I'd did everything I needed it to. It looks amazing, cycles air, never gets fogged up, has wide visibility, and drops panties.....I'd give it 10 out of 10 February 23, 2015
Great product Icon helmets have been a great item of protection for me while i have been riding. Thankfully I have never been in an accident to test its lts strength, I can still tell that this helmet is snug and durable. The fit is amazing, it is a deep helmet that fits well even after its broken in. I approve of this helmet and its designs. Shipping and packaging was top notch by revzilla! February 23, 2015
Good helmet for 150 Great bargain for the price, you get 2 shields (clear and black) I use the black one even at night. The only thing with this helmet is that it's a bit tight on the sides and the "pro lock" system, I don't like it it's a bit hard to open the shield back up with only one hand. In summary, it's a good helmet for the price, it looks great! February 17, 2015
Coolest looking helmet on the market This helmet looks awesome. And you get BOTH the smoked and clear facesheilds. This helmet flows a TON of air. It doesn't feel heavy and it fits exactly as the chart says. February 16, 2015
Great Beginner's Helmet! I bought this helmet with my new Kawasaki last year and this fit on the small side. I have a round head.. normally wearing a M i had up size into an XL (good thing for the free return policy!). The liner inside is extremely easy to clean and this fits my head more snug than the other brands. I will buy another after this wears its time. February 15, 2015
If you don't like it, you're most likely nit-picking. So let's start on my purchase. This was my first helmet from Revzilla (who really do stick to their word on great shipping and return) and I was extremely excited. I chose to measure my head in CM to get a more accurate measurement, and I was 56.7cm. I figured it was better to wear a snug helmet than a loose one, but I made a mistake. I ordered small and by putting it on twice, it rashed and scratched my face upon removal. So I returned it and got a medium. Now that I have the medium, it does feel like a perfect fit, and I do recommend it for head protection and fit, but it's the taking it off that is a bummer. It's still a tight fit coming off, but I figure that over time the lower neck pads will loosen up. Really, that's my only issue, unless you wanna complain about the pro lock that is in fact extremely stiff at letting you slide the shield up, but you have two choices: take a little more protein to pop if up from the metal nipple it latches on to, or file the circle on the shield A LITTLE bit to an angle to let it slide (REPEAT, A LITTLE) easier - I did not do this, nor will I, but it's just a recommendation for some others complaining - although you do risk making it too easy to slide up. Other than those two things, it fits, my ears are fine, and I do have big ears. I do have a more Long-Oval/Oval head, but if you have the proper size it fits more than fine. February 15, 2015
Great Bang for the Buck! This helmet was my first when I was starting to learn how to ride. The value is fantastic, you get 2 lenses, the comfort is excellent, and it looks great! It is a little on the heavier side but for the price I do not mind. Highly recommend if you are on a budget. February 12, 2015
Awesome helmet but it hurts. I love this helmet. I fell in love with it when I first put it on but i hated it when I tried to take it off. My ears are red, they are killing me. They will try to rip your ears off. The "lock mechanic" is like impossible to take off with gloves. Lol. I like it though. hopefully it won't hurt my ears anymore. February 7, 2015

Octavio I S: Great value, it came with 2 shields, I only use the dark one even at night just have to open the shield a bit to get a better view in poor lighted streets. It fits snug.

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

Marc N: Needed a copilot helmet, best value. Oct 27, 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.

Matthew P: First off, I like the looks of Icon helmets but they were always a little too pricey; this helmet is relatively cheap and still looks great. Not to mention I have a long oval shaped head (I also have dreads) so I wear a 3XL... this helmet meets the requirements. Apr 5, 2014

Christian R: my friend has this helmet, its pretty nice. Nov 16, 2013
Hilesh G: Like the rubberized helmet skin. The visor is crap though. It regularly comes off hinges if you like to open close it in hot weather to let in extra air. The ok. Lock thing in the front to raise helmet is tough to operate. I'm pretty much using this as my track helmet where visor will pretty much be kept shut. Nov 3, 2013

Ayush S: 1. Heard great reviews about this helmet.
2. I like that the manufacturer name is not advertised all over the helmet. Its very subtle.
3. Comes with an additional dark smoke face shield.
4. One of the few under $150 helmet that boasts being wind tunnel tested.
Sep 14, 2013
Josh O: Awesome value. I am not a hardcore rider, just love to ride; around town, at the beach, in the canyon. At a 150$ I feel like I stole it! The smoke Pro Shield comes included and that is the first thing I usually buy and almost always mentally calculate that cost into any helmet purchase I make. Good protection, fits great, cool look. Sep 12, 2013
Anthony G: Best bang for the buck! Great line of helmet, great model, and now a great finish with both dark and clear visors available in one purchase. Icon for the win. Sep 6, 2013
Steven B: I comes in Matte Black with two visors. $150? You cannot beat that deal with a 10 foot pole. Aug 31, 2013
S H: I currently have an Alliance helmet and am happy with it. I like the idea that this one comes with two face shields. Aug 24, 2013
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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (2) No (0)
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

Sergei S: You get just one set sideplates.
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.

Hilesh G: just one set, you have to remove the side plates to install on the other face shield. Face shield is also difficult to pry open slightly on hotter days, and i did have issues with easily installing the sides of the faceshield in the sides. locking mechanism is weird. Sep 12, 2014

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 (0) 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. Not sure on size wise, but does very well in wind. I ride constantly on freeways and don't have a problem with wind. Hope this helps! Aug 18, 2013

SCOTT D: I have had five icon helmets, the airframe the alliance and others I know that in the past three years, they have changed the manufacture were of their helmet shells because they are running very small I just got a 3X And it almost tore my face off so they are definitely running very small.

A S asked: How does this helmet work for an upright riding position? Is it geared more toward a sport rider? Apr 21, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Paul G: I use this helmet on my harley. Although I do reach SLIGHTLY forward for my bars I consider my bike pretty upright. The alliance is comfortable, not terribly heavy and the dark shield is convenient for riding in the late afternoons when the sun may get into your eyes. I wear this helmet daily and would recommend it for someone that rides any style motorcycle... So long as you follow the fitment guide and pay attention to the detailed breakdown on revzilla. Apr 21, 2014
Reply to Paul Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
david c: I think it'd work fine for an upright riding position. It's very comfortable and a snug fit. It blocks the wind pretty well and it doesn't fog up that much either. I ride a Triumph Daytona but I have a 3-inch clip swap so it's a more upright position and I don't have any complaints about it. Apr 21, 2014

Jacob B: i have been wearing this for the last 3 years on my cruiser and although i have not had much experience with anything short of a half-helmet, i get very little resistance and only the usual amount of wind noise, etc. from it in this upright position. unless im going 90+ mph...!

Richard O: Works fine for upright seating positions. The chin bar actually covers your chin completely, good field of vision. Great helmet for ADV bikes (I ride a Guzzi Stelvio). It also works great on unfaired standard bikes and cruisers. Probably good for most bikes, but these are the ones I've actually used with the Alliance. Apr 21, 2014

A shopper asked: Hey guys, quick couple questions for anyone who owns and uses this helmet:

1) Is the darker shield too dark to use at night/ is it dark enough to be useful facing sunlight?

2) Are the shields easily interchangeable?
Jun 26, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Stephen F: 1) I do not wear the dark at night, if I have the dark shield on I simply wear clear glasses. The glasses are a little tight with the fit of the helmet, but it works at least to get me home.

2) The shields were a little tough at first, but once you get the hang of it, I can swap them out in seconds.

Marty M: I wear my dark visor at night but I stay in a well lit city. What I do at night is keep a pair of clear safety glasses on at night so I can flip up the visor if its too dark or if I want to ride aggressively. Jun 30, 2014

Hadi W: 1) It is safe to use at night, however at night I ride slow because of safety reasons and I wouldn't want to have the dark one on at night.

2)no it takes time for mine to get in properly.

Look at the Icon Alliance shields and see if a Gold is available. I know there is a yellow which fits, and I have the dark, which is excellent and allows surprisingly clear and glare free vision.

Stephen F: 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. Apr 22, 2014

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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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.

A shopper asked: Can this thing really protect you? It looks awesome but, by the way the material looks I feel like the protection is lacking. Can this thing really protect me if I go down? Jul 26, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Colt M: Protection is a relative term. This helmet will save your life if you are in a standard motorcycle crash. Standard meaning "normal circumstances". 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. I do not know what type of testing was done for track, or high speed use. I trust it to wear on my everyday commute. I have had a high side wreck in an Icon AirFrame, and it only came out with mild abrasions. Sep 3, 2014

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Richard O: I have a long oval head shape and also occasionally get those pressure points with the Alliance. My previous helmet was an Arai Profile which did not have this problem...but also cost a lot more. I've been thinking about carefully shaving some of the material from the forehead area if it gets worse. Apr 21, 2014

Gaurav P: I am yet to use the Airframe and so I won't be of much help when it comes to comparing the two. Having said that, I have been using the Alliance for close to an year now and I am more than satisfied with the snug fit it offers. Apr 17, 2014

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. I would try the small because it's better to have a snug helmet than a loose one when it comes to crashing. If it's too tight you can always do the exchange like I did when I bought a medium. Hope this helps. Cheers. Jul 5, 2014

Sergei S: I have an oval shape head in size MD. So I bought a MD.
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.
