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. November 3, 2014
Awesome design, great fit. I recently destroyed my Shoei RF-1200 and started looking for a replacement helmet. Initially the crazy design of this helmet caught my eye, but when I tried on an Icon Airmada, it fit me much better than my Shoei did. I tried on a Large Airmada at a local store and it fit me exactly the same as the Variant does. Very comfortable lining. The visor is a b**** to replace, and one of the screws came pre-cross threaded. Really cool helmet, I recommend it. Shipping took forever though; I hate UPS with a passion. September 18, 2014
Variant Helmet Matt Black Few months ago I bought a Variant Helmet. Never saw one here in New Zealand. I just like the looked of it as I follow Miz Shift on YouTube and it does stand out from everything else even when you have a flash bike but people first point of view will be your head. When I first got it I had been pulled over more then I can ever count cause the cops never seen one. Never got a speeding tickets just wanna check out my helmet and take a picture with it. Everything about the Variant is great. I don't know about you guys with the wind noise but I listen to my music when I ride and I wear a bennie and a neck cover which make it air tight on my ears and I can't hear the wind noise. The only reason will make me think twice about buying another is that I have to pay an extra NZ$386.00 as custom fees. It's sucks but I want my helmet so bad. Revzilla and Icon, please I know a lot of people they wanna buy a Variant helmet from here but since they found out that I have to pay another NZ$386.00 custom fees they back off from it. I want a few but too bad cause by the time the helmet get here I am spending NZ$900.00+. It's a great helmet and I recommend it.

Great Airflow... a bit too much! The visor does get whipped around at speed. Great helmet... super comfortable! Great Airflow... a bit too much! The visor does get whipped around at speed. Up to about 40 mph is great... but after that if a bit too much. I ride a naked bike and you can really feel it at speed. Excellent styling... looks pretty sick! October 20, 2014
My head is intact A few years ago I went to the store looking to buy an Arai XD-somethingorother, and the salesperson (whose judgment I trust) convinced me to try a Hi-Viz Variant. It was a better fit, and the outwardly-curved visor had better optics. On the bike, there was a bit of buffeting and noise from the visor, but no big deal once I knew what to expect. It never made my neck tired on long trips, plus I commute east in the morning and west in the evening, so the visor was a great sun-blocking feature. In the rain (I live in Oregon), the helmet never fogged. Because of the curve of the visor, any water that seeped in around the top edge did not run down the inside of it, obscuring my vision, but merely dripped straight down and out the bottom of the helmet. Three days ago, my helmet did its job. I lost traction on a wet road, avoiding a cager who violated my right of way. Helmet hit pavement at about 25 mph, on the right side, and scraped for a bit. I have no head trauma and no neck trauma. My head didn't bounce. I didn't even see stars. I will absolutely be buying this helmet again. I only wish they still made it in hi-viz orange.

Work of Art - No - It's a MASTERPIECE WOW - LOVE IT. Gotta be the coolest helmet ever. Outside of looking amazing it is really well built. I agree when I first tried it on I felt like the guy getting his face pinched between two fingers. But after a few hours in the saddle it relaxed and is very comfortable now. Since I ride a "dual sport" massive speeds and helmet lift will never be a problem. Was going for the flat black but at the last minute decided everyone wears that so got the silver (Medallion) with a silver face shield. Holy Moly it looks great. The finish is perfect > Went over it with a flashlight and magnifying glass. The shield is not too dark (kinda a little darker would be nice) but now I can keep it on at night and no need to change. Also I have thick sunglasses and just tried them with the helmet since people said you could not ear glasses - they feel fine. Cons - Very minor - Wish they would make the strap a ratchet strap like my old helmet, D rings are a real PIA. 2nd my cleaner bottle was empty...waaa. :) No bigs. Also glad Icon does not go overboard with crazy fancy packaging. It is nice packaging but companies that go over the top make you wonder if they could just chill out and save me money on something I throw away anyways. ZLA you guys are AWESOME!!! October 17, 2014
Satisfied with the Icon Variant I've had a couple hundred miles under this helmet so far and I am completely satisfied so far. I bought this helmet for its looks, safety, price and overall rating. Good airflow on the hot days. Good wide field of view. Average noise. Yes, the shield is a bit of a pain to change but I knew that going in so I'm okay with that. I would recommend this helmet.

After many helmets this is the one. I have went through several helmets over the last 5 years looking for one that met my needs. I had a HJC Symax 2, and a Scorpion 900 transformer. in the last 3 years and did not like several things about them. I was always going modular helmet because I did not want to take my glasses off to put a helmet on. The Scorpion was too round for my longer oval head and went with this baby and glad I did. I spent the extra money for the limited edition Big game (zebra pattern with red graphic on the side because it matched my new Honda 2014 CX500. Looks good and love the look of the fiber through the color. Best thing is though it really keeps your head cool and when I leave for work at 4:00AM does not fog. It is comfortable on a long (4+ hours on the bike). I finally found something that fit good and was comfortable and didn't fog. August 18, 2014

Jane C: When I received my helmet it came with both clear and smoke visor. I definitely recommend the Icon Variant, I ride a street fighter and this helmet completely eliminates the effects of wind in a full tuck. Feb 12, 2014

Daniel L: When I ordered my Variant Big Game Helmet, it came with a dark smoke shield in the box. Although, there was a mixup, Icon had packed a proshield dark smoke shield, but Revzilla resolved that issue for me. Feb 11, 2014
Reply to Daniel Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Andrew H: Yes. It comes equipped with a clear visor, but there's a dark smoke visor in the package, along with a cleaning kit, chin skirt, and helmet bag that's like a nice gym backpack. Aug 14, 2014
Reply to Andrew Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Luke B: Yes!, mine came with a dark smoke visor! Be gentle when changing them out though; I was a bit to vigorous with the screw and stripped it. Nothing duck tape cannot fix though :) Feb 11, 2014

Reply to Alvaro A Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
C J: Yes it does. Also, take IMMACULATE care when cleaning the inside of the visor. For some reason it scratches very easily, more so than the exterior of the visor. Never had this issue with cheaper helmets... Feb 14, 2014
