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.

Boss unless you have little wimp neck.
This helmet is awesome... At low speeds. The variant is not quite as aerodynamic as Icon claim (surprised? I mean look at it) but as long as you keep your speed at or under 120kmph it remains quite comfortable. That being said, controlling road speed is an entirely different matter than wind speed. Pray you aren't riding into a headwind for any extended time (side winds are similarly irritating).
Now back to the awesome part: the huge field of view will likely ruin your last helmet's attempt to provide peripheral awareness. This helmet almost has the FOV of an open face lid (almost, it still has a nose piece) and flows more air than a turbofan engine. With the visor, harsh sunlight is almost never in your eyes. As an added bonus, the bizarre pattern really turns heads. Great visibility for cage driver awareness. I love this lid, but it's not for the faint of neck...

Performs as it should
Style: I've always wanted this helmet because I love the style of it. I've received a ton of complements on it from people that I ride with as well as people that just see me and give me a shout out on the street.
Fit: My head measures 23" (exactly in between sizes according to Icon's website) and bought the large. Not sure if the helmet fits amazing, or if my old lid was just so bad that anything would feel awesome.
Performance: I relied heavily on the reviews of different customers, and naively bought into the "no head shake until I reached 120 mph" that others are writing. This is absolutely ridiculous, which I should have known just by thinking logically. Highway riding is fine unless you have moderate to high winds. Once you hit the interstate and you're doing 80-85 MPH, even a slight cross wind will pick up the visor from the side and cause a lot of head movement. If you're considering purchasing this helmet as a daily commuter for interstate riding, do yourself a favor a move onto something else. I take this on an hour long commute via the interstate 1-2 times per week and hate it. Would it keep me from buying it again? Absolutely not. However, if I made that commute any more often, I would definitely rethink the purchase. If you're buying this to cruise around town, don't worry about the visor doing anything but blocking out the sun.
Overall: Overall its a great helmet and it does what its supposed to... looks amazing while cruising around town. I'd definitely recommend it, just not for a long commute at high speeds.

Great product, A little snug but gets better with time
This is a great helmet and truly well-formed outer shell. The visor could be attached a little firmer and would most likely break if you dropped it hard enough on it but otherwise good all around helmet. Comes a tiny bit small in comparison to other helmets but really softens up on the ears after a week or two of riding.
The visor is surprisingly not too strenuous on your neck at speeds up to about 120mph but gets difficult to keep steady beyond that.

People will stare
LOVE this lid. As for the Variant itself, it is a pretty sick helmet. Best for urban riding but no problems on the highway. Many people worry the visor will catch air and pull your head but unless your canyon carving or constantly bombing through traffic you shouldn't have any problems. The Big Game comes with a dark smoke shield(nice touch!). People will stare. Which I like...that means they SEE me and won't forget I'm there! haha Fit and Finish are superb. Watch the revzilla video review for a great look at the graphic.

John B: I wanted something that was different from all the other street helmets that are out there and this definitely succeeds at that. Just looks badass.Nov 9, 2013
Wilhelm H: Aside from all the functional aspects I really like the aggressive styling and the mad graphics. Of all the icon helmets this one is my favourtie and it just so happens that it's well suited to the type of riding I'll be doing.Oct 19, 2013
