Gazing down the barrel reveals a clarity of purpose. A single-minded mission devoid of right or wrong. The Variant Battlescar understands this unequivocally. The raw shell, tinted in variegated shades of dark earth and covert green, is truly unique amongst its contemporaries. It is both unrefined and elegant. A natural beauty with a penchant for three-round bursts.

Love this helmet I ride this helmet on my fz09 and I love it. The wind does crazy or a tuck doesn't fix. They style is perfect for what I was looking for and the battle scar coloring was so unique I always have people asking me about it. I would recommend this product for anything debating it and will probably buy it again once this one goes. The fit and finish was perfect. Always quality stuff from icon. April 27, 2015
best helmet ever!!!!! Best helmet ever, Pros: Lightweight Good vision Style Price Cons: If you don't have a intermediate oval shape head will be difficult to get the helmet out. I wear a size medium on a hjc helmet, in this particular helmetI got a size Large and fits perfect. Best helmet ever. April 23, 2015
cant go wrong with icon I have several variant helmets myself, this one is for the gf. She tried mine on and loved it. People complain about the visor catching wind, but honestly, it isn't that bad April 20, 2015
This helmet is very comfortable and visually great. The helmet looks great and fits wonderfully. I feel very safe in it and know that I would buy a product like this one again. The only thing I don't enjoy is that it is very hard to remove the eye guard. I wish I could put the clear and the one that is darker in easier. April 14, 2015
A gorgeous helmet with only one real drawback. As manufacturers go, Icon is on the forefront in terms style and brand design. This is evident in the Variant. This helmet looks amazing, has tons of airflow, is feature rich, is durable, and comfortable to wear. Of the multiple helmets I own, its the one I like to wear the most. And thats part of the one problem I have with it. Changing shields is a pain. You must remove a plastic cover on each side, with a flat-blade. Then, you must use a tool of some kind to remove the philips-head screws that hold the shield in place. However, the grooves are rather wide, and the metal is soft. You WILL start to round out the screw grooves pretty much immediately. Icon includes a keyring flat-blade, but its somewhat useless. A quarter works better, but you still have to fight to get purchase, in order to ensure you don't round out the screw grooves. Once you're changed out, you have to try several times to get the angle right for replacing the screws. If you mis-thread, the screw can lock into the mount. Then you're replacing a helmet, as the mount is embedded in the fiberglass of the helmet, not the mounting system. To wit, you end up not being able to perform quick shield changes. This is kind of a downside if you're like me, and you carry a smoke shield for day riding, and a yellow shield for night riding. If I know I'm heading out in the day, and coming home after dark, I'll invariably grab one of my other helmets that I can quick change a shield on, so that I'm not locked into one option. Now, don't get me wrong. The variant is my favourite helmet. I wear it whenever I can. But if I might need to switch shields, it quickly becomes my secondary choice. May 25, 2015
Typical Icon quality, style and fit! This helmet falls right in line with other Variant helmets from Icon. High quality construction, great fit and finish, and detail makes this a winner! May 4, 2015
Good Helmet I've had my Variant for a little over a season now and I still love it. It's comfortable, not too loud, and has a very good field of vision. I do have some complaints though, my biggest one being the face shield and changing it. When changing to the clear shield for night riding I'm always the last one in my group messing around with my helmet. The threads are very soft so be careful when tightening. I stripped them and Icon sent me a new helmet which I was very pleased with. Air flow could be better too. Overall it's a good helmet with good value not to mention it looks great with a mirrored shield! April 25, 2015
Horrible and noisy I believe this helmet is the worst on the market. Don't even think about using this helmet in ANY other weather than sunny days. The lens seal is virtually nonexistent which helps water and snow find it's way into the helmet. because the seal is so bad it makes the helmet VERY noisy. I put the silver RST lens on and that may or may not contribute to the problem but for such an expensive helmet, you would think that iicon could make a lens that fits properly. Changing the lens in itself is a complete pain and changing the visor is just as horrible. I would definitely NOT recommend this product to anybody I know and if I hear of someone looking at them, I will do everything I can to talk them out of buying this helmet. April 16, 2015

Y U: Looks very different from everything else in the market, reviews are mostly positive. First purchase at revizilla and I'm pretty confident it will turn up quickly. Heard only good things about the revi team customer service. Keep it up guys :) Mar 29, 2014
David P: This helmet is awesome! I bought the charcoal color and it changes color with different lighting. I added the Gold Mirror shield and even rode with it and night and the visibility was fine. The wind noise is minimal but the visor does catch in the wind with high speed but its not that bad. I wear a size 7 1/8 hat and ordered the helmet in medium. Its a bit tight but eventually it will break in but for now my ears feel like they are going to rip off every time I take the helmet off. Mar 21, 2014

A shopper asked: I want to get a third party Bluetooth but the guys at my motorcycle shop told me that the visor will collect a lot of wind and create a lot of wind/road noise and so I should go with something different. Is that true? How does the helmet do with wind and road noise in terms of bluetooth communications and etc.? Nov 17, 2013

Kyle C: The main idea of this helmet was to bring a lot of air into the helmet. But each air vent has a close switch. As far as a Bluetooth goes. The padding inside does not separate from the shell like most so you have to make sure you can crunch the padding enough for the mounting bracket. I have a scala rider q2. It took some engineering by using longer bolts w nuts to crunch the padding so I could use the bolts that came w the unit. The combo is great and the headset has a noise filter. My wife hasn't complained when we talk on the phone so I think you'll be ok. Good luck. And ride safe. Nov 17, 2013

Shane D: I have the Scala rider G9 which works really well even at 70mph+ speeds while on phone calls. Audio is also great for listening to music and the corded option is great for saving battery on a longer trip.

However you cant mount the unit on with the screw compression backing. You are left with the stick on option which given the shape of the helmet requires adding new adhesive strips even few months!

Great looking helmet! with the dark visor you will get lots of looks stopped at the traffic lights

Payam S: The Icon Variant Battlescar Helmet is a fairly quiet helmet. I would compare it to the noise level of a shoei Qwest. It is very comfortable and well built. The Visor surprisingly does not catch too much air. I ride a sport bike and I commute around 1 hour to work and back at highway speeds. My only issue with the helmet is that the face shield does not go far back enough so it obstructs my field of vision when riding with face shield up.
Overall great helmet, with great looks.

A shopper asked: I currently measure at a 22in (rounded) at the circumference of my head (my forehead). It says 22in maxes out at a small, though once the helmet is broken in, would it be pretty snug?
I wore a sevenzeroseven (707) helmet, at a medium- which is about the same measurement at 22in for a medium, but the helmet is broken in for a good 4-5 months and the fit is starting to get ugly (it IS a cheaper helmet).
How are your sizing compared to other helmets like the shoei and arai? (I tried shoei and arai at my local MC store and they all seem to fit really good, but I'm just a bit skeptical on once it is broken in.

james b: In my opinion icon does not fit the same as shoei or arai. Otherwise I would have one of their adventure style helmets. The icon is snug at first but loosens some with wear. I have 2 variant helmets and the older still fits snug but the padding is obviously broken in. Hope this helps May 29, 2014
Reply to james Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Scott B: The helmets size pretty similar to the 707 line, and will break in, though I've found not as much as the cheap 707 liner. The liner for the variant is firm but plush. I would go for the small, though ordering without wearing the helmet first is always a crapshoot. Good luck. May 29, 2014

steven w: It is very similar to Simpson helmets... I went off the size I used to wear in simpson helmets and it was a perfect fit. I used to wear shoei... like this helmet a lot more.

Ulrich B: An inner shield? Not sure what you mean. It has a great shield, and you can use the clear or the the dark one. I have been using the dark one for about a year now, mostly off road, and other than sticky vent controls it's been a great helmet for me. Nov 15, 2013

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jody M: I cant comment on the UCLEAR HBC100 specifically but I attached my Sena to it with ease. You can either stick it to it with the 3m tape mount or use the clamp and it works perfect. The liner you can just pull out and right where your speakers would go the variant already comes with velcro on it so all you have to do is stick the speaker on. No modding necessary. May 10, 2015

A shopper asked: I'm looking into buying one of these and the size chart recommends to take a XL. I have one street bike HJC helmet and on dirtbike HJC helmet and they're both XXL. So I wonder if the size between the ICON and the HJC are the same? Apr 19, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Guy C: I had an old Arai helmet it was a Large. I stuck to Large even though I was really tempted to go XL. And I didn't regret it, the first couple of rides the helmet was more than snug, but did fit. After a week of daily drive, everything squished into place and the Large is perfect for me.

I don't know about HJC, never had one. But in your case I'd recommend going XL, try it out, (without riding) if it's really too small, you can exchange it, Revzilla is great for that...

my 2 cents.

Just wondering if anyone could compare sizing of the Variant to a Shoei RF-1100? I wear a medium 1100 at the moment (fits very well albeit could be tighter) but I could fit a small 1100 for a snug "race" fit.
Thanks!
