In a nutshell, badass looks & bang for your buck Ok, this is an ICON, you can find some of these helmets for $110 bucks on Revzilla (SALE), but the graphics are plain ugly. The Alliance Dark looks great and the spare dark lens makes this even better, DARK REIGNS SUPREME!!! Everybody complains on the locking system, well this was designed for that, holding your lens on high speeds and specially in case of a crash, so stop whining. The fit is tight on the head, which is nice again in case of a crash, and as the material will not suffer any deformation with moisture and after hours of driving, This helmet truly deserves a 5 star rating in bang for your buck! pseudoCONS: Looks big, but it feels just right thanks to its great visibility and safety April 21, 2014
This product has everything you want for a great price This helmet is definitely a bang for your buck. The rubatone finish is really nice don't leave finger prints and easy to clean. Very comfortable and easy to use the black visor is definitely a great deal getting it with helmet.. great air flow overal a great helmet A++ April 21, 2014
Great helmet for the price I have ridden with open face or partially open face helmets for the last few years. Lately, I've been riding on the freeways a lot more and started looking for a full face helmet that wouldn't cost a fortune. After researching a lot of them, I decided to give the Icon Alliance Dark a try. I've been really pleased with the comfort, fit and finish, especially for the price. A couple of minor things that I want to mention: the pin that locks the shield closed is a little bit of a pain sometimes. I noticed on more expensive helmets there are nicer systems for this. Also, wind noise can get pretty loud at high speeds, but again, for the price I think it does a great job and I would highly recommend it to anyone. April 14, 2014
best helmet for the price At $130 you cant find a better helmet, even if it was $300 this is a excellent helmet. First sizing, I always use XL size on helmets, no matter what brand, bell, nolan, LS2, Arai, any brand I've had and tried at stores always the XL fits me just right. This however does not :S, I ordered the XL and found it to be incredible tight putting the helmet on and off its a horrible experience, once on the cheeks are way to tight, I left the cheek pads under a box of books overnight hoping they would compress a little, they didn't... I've been using the helmet like this for about 2 weeks now and its not getting better I finally decided to order the replacement cheek pads in xxl size hopefully that will take care of the problem. As for the features: It virtually never fogs!! I've try to bread as heavily as possible, throwing as much hot air into the visor and it remains clear!! Airflow is amazing, if you open all the vents 5 in total you will never sweat. It looks amazing in rubatone finish with the smoke shiled, the shield is not that dark and it allows you to see at night, but I still prefer the clear shield. April 14, 2014
Great economical helmet As a point of reference, I'll have to compare against my other helmet, which is a Scorpion EXO-700. This package is definitely a great deal as you get an additional dark smoke face shield and a good helmet. Being matte black, it's no frills but for those of us that doesn't need crazy graphics on a helmet, it works just fine. However, the matte black may not be ideal for summer riding as it could get a little hot in there but when moving the airflow is nice. The weight is comparable to the Scorpion EXO-700 but the noise level is a bit odd. The general noise of the bike seems to be less in the Icon but the wind noise is louder in the icon as well. Usually, medium helmets tend to be a little snug for me and it takes a bit of time for them to expand a little but this one seemed to be a little bigger than other helmet's I've bought in the past as the medium size wasn't super snug when I first tried it on. It is still a good fit for my head though which is slightly more round than oval. Changing the face shield is a bit of a pain and not the easiest. Also a lot of people complain that the face shield lock is really tight and hard to pop the face shield off and this is the case for mine as well as my helmet will tilt upwards when I try to lift the face shield and I have to readjust my helmet again. It would have been a better design if they made that little metal pin spring loaded but you can't expect that for the price. April 14, 2014
Can't go wrong with this helmet I decided to try out a Icon helmet and it is light, slick and comfortable. For the price point you can't beat it, my max for spending on a helmet is about 350.00, I just don't see the point of spending 700 or 800 bucks on a helmet that will do the same thing, (protect your head) but I would suggest this to everyone plus it matches the flat black on my bike! April 4, 2014
Great helmet, fits comfortably and no strain on my neck. My one and only complaint is it didn't come with a second set of side covers. I ride to work when its still dark, using the clear shield, and ride home facing the sun, using the sunshield. When I swap shields I feel like im going to break the covers or the shield. I will be buying set of covers for sure. Other than that, I am extrememly happy with my purchase. April 4, 2014
Great for its price Overall great helmet, light weight, matte black looks great, inside pads do not retain odors which is a big plus, air ventilation isn't that great on top, it lets a lot of air in through the bottom which isn't necessarily a bad thing on warm weather but it would be a problem in colder situations, helmet looks and feels great and for the price it would be very difficult to find something better.

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.

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

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

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.

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

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? 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...!

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

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
