Icon Alliance Dark Helmet
Lots of compliments
I usually don't write reviews but this helmet deserves some praise. First off I get a lot of compliments, you look like a straight badass with the smoked screen on. It's nice that it came with that. It's a little difficult to change out screens at first but I'm slowly getting it down. I was looking at getting the Airmada because I live in MN and it can get over 100° and humid so I didn't want anything hot. It's my first helmet so I don't have a frame of reference but it definitely breathes. Open all the vents and leave the screen popped open a little and it'll move a ton of air. It's very comfortable and I can't really say anything negative about it. Maybe the only thing is that the padding will start to wear in as you wear it. It went from being nice and snuggle to having a little play. Only time it really interferes is when I look completely behind me on the highway, the wind takes it a little. Apparently you can get different pads to customize it to your head but it's not bad. Helmet feels solid, quality all the way around. For $150 you're getting a lot of helmet. Would buy again without hesitation.

Peripheral vision blocked by side plates; Bottom of cheek pads worn out quickly
I ride every single day, rain, sun, hail, etc. I take my helmet on and off tons of times, so I'm not surprised that the cheek pads have worn out. I am putting my faith in to this helmet and hope that it'll protect my skull. Anyways, when I first wore this helmet, it was super tight. After I broke it in, the helmet has molded to the shape of my head nicely.
Another disadvantage is that peripheral vision is limited because of the side plates.
Overall, I like this helmet. The rubatone is really nice looking. I get compliments on my helmet all the time. I've got comments that it reminded them of Batman's helmet.

If you're on a budget you can't go wrong here
This helmet is definitely a great bang for your buck. Fit is comfortable.
I do get annoyed at changing the lense out as it's pretty difficult. However the tinted visor it comes with isn't too dark and is even suitable for night riding in well lit areas. So I just roll with the dark for day and night commute.
Definitely a great looking helmet.
The wind noise is pretty high and I do wear earplugs (you should too) but it's not ridiculously loud. My bike is also quite loud so maybe that's a factor too.
Overall if you're on a budget, do it. It's DOT and ECE rated.

This helmet is simple and looks great. Comes with two visors, both clear and black. The cheeks are a bit narrower than expected but, overall, the helmet is awesome.

Great helmet for the price!
This is my first bike helmet, I love the helmet cannot really find anything bad about it. I did notice a little bit of air noise but that's about it. All in all a great helmet for the price.

Get the most of what you pay for
Bought this last year and have traveled 11000 miles in it. I love plain and simple and that is just what this is. Visor has relatively hard detents, so it stays where you put it at any speed. With that button holding the visor closed it is hard to open with a thick glove.
Behind a windshield this is the loudest helmet I have ever put on my head, but in clean air it is very quiet. I have a whistle that comes from the right exhaust vent, but with it only on one side I assume it is an anomaly. I just plug the hole in cool wether and it's gone. A lot of air moves through the helmet, but it will still fog behind a windshield around 55 degrees (just crack the shield). It will move to much air even with the vents closed in the cold, but in Kansas summers it's an easy trade.
I take all the bells and whistles off my bikes, and this is a helmet to match.

Beautiful and great helmet.
Amazing helmet especially for the price! Size fits true to chart they have on here. I am 22" and I got the medium, it fit a little tight around the cheeks but after wearing it for a few hours it fits perfect, nice and snugged. Very sleek looking helmet, feels safe. I dropped it once from like 2 feet and a little tiny peice that hold that visor in on the side chipped off, but thankfully everything on this helmet is fixable with the repair kits revzilla provides. Not expensive either. Just try not dropping it. The visor is a little difficult to get open sometimes, but if you put some muscle to it, it'll open just fine. Don't worry, it won't break. I had that fear too. It gets easier after a while as well. Over all this helmet is amazing. 4.5/5 I give it. Many compliments on it as well.
I attached a picture of my buddy wearing the same helmet with his boyfriend lol (hope you see this TEO)
