Icon Variant Big Game Helmet

What’s black and white and red all over? Conventional wisdom says a newspaper. Or a zebra in a blender. But the Variant Big Game defies convention. A brazen stripe pattern with a bold red flash dares the lurking pride to take their best shot. The Big Game turns the tables. The hunted now has become the hunter.

Icon Variant Big Game Helmet 4.5 5 186 186
Great style This helmet is a sexy beast, yet it has its flaws. The fit is amazing for an intermediate oval head shape. Very comfortable fit on the inside. It is a little on the heavy side though. Air flow is the best I've ever seen, does a great job keeping your head cool on hot rides. The down side to that is the noise level. By far the loudest helmet I've ever worn. I installed a Sena smh 10r for music and phone calls, any speed above 50 and it is extremely difficult to hear. The sun visor is a bit of a chore to get use to. I have a 2 hour daily commute and it gets to be a strain on the neck at times. Looking dead ahead is not that big of a deal but when you turn your head you get a bit of a whip once the wind catches it. The construction is a bit of an issue. The gaskets around the visor and bottom of the helmet came off within a few weeks of use. It may have just been the helmet I got, but its quite an issue for the amount of money spent. On the bright side, Icon is a pleasure to deal with when it comes to exchanges on the warrantee, no sweat return and quick shipment for the replacement. Over all it is a solid helmet. Decent price and a sexy beast. July 28, 2015
Great Helmet!! This helmet is sick, has good ventilation, was able to stay cool in 90+ degree weather. May get a little cold during early spring and late fall but haven't tried it in under 60 degree weather yet. The wind resistance took a little getting used to at highway speeds but I don't really notice it anymore. It's a great looking helmet and is really comfortable on the inside. The only real downside to the helmet is the price point but I had my mind set on it so I had to get it! July 27, 2015
Saved my life This helmet saved my life. Wrecked when I hit gravel on an S curve in rural farm lands. Was knocked unconscious and slammed the living heck out of my head. Had I been wearing an inferior helmet I would have died that day. Already ordered another one to replace it as I loved the look but more importantly I loved that it more than did its job. When you look at the way it absorbed the impact its quite incredible, I regret not taking a picture to share. On impact it spread the damage across the entire helmet instead of cracking it open where my head hit the pavement, The visor is nice in summertime, along with excellent airflow. These helmets also offer quite a bit of cusomization as you can change the guts, shield, and add a breathguard and/or chin guard. Never fogged on me the entire time I had it, my only gripe is the sticker on the under side of the visor started peeling off almost immediately. All in all a great helmet, my only thing is this is a very oval shaped helmet, so if you are a rounder head person you may need to go up a size but since Revzilla offers free returns for sizing I would not stress it too much.

Love it! Looks badass with the mirror visor, my Sena 20s Bluetooth headset and a Gopro hero4. I love this helmet! May 27, 2015
Great for warm weather overall it's a great product. Great airflow, pretty comfortable once it's broken in and the style is second to none. I've rides in about 40 degree weather with this thing and i think it catches too much air for colder weather riding. It's amazing in 90 degree summer heat though. This helmet runs a little small because of the narrow profile (I'm a medium in HJC and Shoei and a large fit perfectly for the variant). The first few weeks it was a little uncomfortable but once the padding is softened up and broken in, it's actually one of the more comfortable helmets I've worn. I would definitely recommend a mirrored visor over the smoked visor if you're going for that type of look due to the fact that the mirrored visor is a lot easier to see through at night than a mirrored visor. I would also recommend using the chin curtain that comes with the helmet because the large opening at the nose tends to catch a lot of bugs and debris at faster speeds. The indents for comm. speakers in the sides of the helmet are also a huge plus. Overall, I really enjoy the helmet and would absolutely recommend it. July 6, 2015
Great helmet, make sure to order one size up Great helmet. Looks great, plenty of room for speakers / microphone if you're using a Sena Bluetooth system or something similar. Air flow is fantastic and so is the field of vision. Some complain about the visor catching the wind and tugging on your head but I've never had that problem. Definitely consider ordering a size up. I'm usually a size large. Ordered a large, when I got it, it went on okay but was painful to take off. It's since worn it and it's better, but I wish I had gotten the XL. Still rubs my face and can get uncomfortable on several hour rides. I don't think I'd be complaining about the comfort with an XL. I also like that it comes with the clear and dark tinted visors.

First week review! I just got this helmet recently, so this is more of a first look review. This helmet is a drastic improvement from my old one. It's quieter, more snug, has much better airflow, and is super light comparatively. Out of the box it was tight but so is every helmet you get if you get the right size. The cheek pads are still a bit tight even now whereas the rest of the helmet has broken in nicely, but my cheeks don't hurt after a long ride or anything, but I'm assuming those will loosen up. I was very pleased when I found out that this model has a defog position for the face shield which will come in handy when it gets colder. I immediately changed to a gold mirrored lens and boy, it was a lot more of a pain than I thought it would be, but the gold mirrored has great night time vis as well so I don't really need to switch anymore. I've ridden at highway speeds and higher and can say that the peak is not a huge factor. I actually like the way it keeps my head straight. When head checking, you can feel that it is there but it in no way tries to rip your head off. You learn to head check a certain way with time that makes it even less noticeable, and looking up isn't a problem at all. Over-all a great helmet so far! I absolutely love the way it looks! Everyone who compliments it says I look like master Chief! Anyway, I will be back later for another review. June 24, 2015
