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.

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

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.

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.

My new fav
I purchased the Matte Black version. Threw some black reflective ICON stickers on the sides and its looks completely bada$$.
Love the fit. Very comfortable. I've seen mixed reviews on wind noise, for me I don't think its bad at all. Only time I notice the wind is head checks at 70+ mph Other than that, its my new favorite helmet. Thanks Icon and Revzilla.

I got this helmet in a white with the Breathbox and the mirrored visor and it works awesome!! ive gotten alot of positive comments on the looks, and the air flow is just top level! i ride a 2012 ZX10r and it matches my bike color scheme! :D So happy with this product! I highly recommend it!

Know what you are getting
I bought this helmet, as it looks very cool! Everyone elses reviews say how awesome this helmet is and how light it is ect. Well im not an icon fanboy, so ill give an honest review. I got the helmet and the first thing i noticed was how noisy the visor is rubbing against the shell. Like screeching noises so that was very annoying. The helmet is very comfortable, breathes very well, and has awesome field of view. But thats were the positives end. I ride a naked bike. At speeds above 30 mph, its the most uncomfortable helmet ive ever owned. Head checking is unbearable at these speeds. Above 40 mph and I now feel like a bobble head and cant keep my head straight. Forget head checking for sure now. Even looking into my mirrors whips my head around. And another complaint; New lens' cost $45 a piece. Thats alot. And also the lens change isnt tool less, and the screws that hold the lens in are garbage and want to strip. This helmet weighs almost 3/4 a pound more than my Sparx helmet. I unfortunately had to sell the Variant. Its a very cool and modern helmet, it just wasnt for me.

Really cool helmet.
Cons: Helmet is not as quiet as my other 2 helmets. (Shoei GT Air & RF1200) The noise is really minor but is noticeable because I was used to my previous helmets which were very quiet.
Note: I read other reviews of the helmet dragging at highway speeds, but it did not drag for me until I reached about 110mph (when head checking). Or at least I did not notice anything until speeds beyond that.
Pros: Great ventilation for hot days and also prevents my visor from fogging in cold temperatures as much as my other 2 helmets. Very comfortable padding along with a snug neck fit. With the visor being a bit bigger than your average one, I really enjoy the wide range of view. And of course, the helmet looks pretty badass which is the main reason I decided to buy it. It looks even better with a tinted or mirrored visor.
