Icon Variant Big Game Helmet
Best helmet I have ever had.
The Icon Variant is a great helmet. It has a comfortable fit, great ventilation, and styling. Even with the sun shield it does not catch the wind as much as previous helmets. It is much quieter and lighter than my old SHOEI. You can't go wrong.

Awesome Helmet, Money well spent
I have read several reviews on this helmet that are less than honest, maybe trolls from other companies with intentions of driving buyers their way. I have ridden with this helmet for 6 months enduring almost any type weather imaginable. From searing hot to bone chilling cold and it has by far handled the weather amicably. I have ridden for over 30 years and have gone through several "lids" of all flavers and brands and the Variant Battle Scar has become my favorite. It was a little tight out of the box but it broke in nicely and is very comfortable. Air flow is exceptional and can easily be controlled by simply using the vent adjustors. I have used it in the cold with all controllable vents shut off and it was very warm, a mild amount of breath condensation at the very bottom of the lense but that is to be expected, but not in my field of view. The head buffeting is very over exagerated by many reviewers as it is a minimal. Tilting slightly down before looking back eliminates any head snatching caused by the visor. The visor itself doesn't really cause any excessive air noise as over exagerated by some reviewers. Some people would'nt be satisfied if the helmet was free. I find the helmet is over all more quiet than most others I have used even when not listening to music through my UClear bluetooth unit which reminds me, the huge speakers of the UClear fit perfectly in the helmet with enough space to adjust them to your liking. You really can't go wrong with this "lid" even though it's a little more costly than others. But keep in mind, what's your most important piece of equipment when you're headed face down towards the asphault? I would definately bet my life on this one! Last but not least, the lense screws, yeah, they can be a PITA and I did purchase the mirrored gold lense, (totally rocks this helmet), I have found the trick to not screwing up the threads is to not over tighten the screws, I have changed my lense back and forth between the gold and clear depending on what time of day I'm riding and have yet to have any issues. Quit thinking about it, quit beeing a CA and get this helmet, you won't regret it!

This is the first helmet I've bought so I have nothing to compare it to, but my oh my do I love it. It's not a race helmet. That's not why you buy this helmet. You buy it to look badass. Especially with the mirrored visor.

My wife bought this helmet for me for Christmas... awesome looking, really comfortable, fits perfect(she used the size chart). Can't wait for spring to try it out, I'll give an update then.

Super comfortable to wear, hugs head/face just right so it's secure but you can still function normally. While it looks like a duel sport, it is definitely a street helmet.
Only small downfall I would say is that you have to get your glasses sitting just right or they get pushed a bit askew by the cheek pads. But with a little practice it's not that hard to do. I'm talking eyeglasses, though may be similar for sunglasses too.

Recently pulled the trigger on the now discontinued construct graphic and first impression was incredible. I upgraded from the Scorpion Exo 500 and the variant fits much more comfortably and vents much better. The field of vision is exceptional compared to my old helmet, and feels very light on my head. Overall very satisfied with it, and once again Revzilla was very helpful with the YouTube videos and customer support which is where my search started. This was my third purchase from Revzilla, and certainly won't be the last. Can't wait until I order the silver reflective shield to really pull all the style out of this helmet. Thanks again Revzilla.

Overall, the icon variant is a great,stylish helmet
I was looking for an upgrade from my $50 helmet and something a little bit stylish. This helmet fits both of that category and more. The liners were really comfortable, the straps was better, and the aggressive look that it gives everytime I ride. This is really a great purchase for me cause it really is worth it.
