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
Laura P: Every review I have seen said good things and the price is right!Oct 27, 2013
Cedric H: I got a new bike and needed a helmet to matchOct 22, 2013
Benjamin S: Perfect fit, readily available in XS, great price point with both dark smoke and clear face shield.Oct 9, 2013
dennis m: Less than $200, one of the only helmets that fit my headSep 16, 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
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
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.Aug 16, 2013
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.Aug 19, 2013
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
