  • Wind tunnel tested and refined
  • Anti-lift visor to reduce glare
  • Multiple oversized intake and exhaust ports

Great Flashy Helmet!
I've worn this helmet every day for about three months now. This is a great helmet (perfect for supermoto riders like me) that has an incredible field of view and the Big Game graphics are awesome.<br><br>The Icon Variant as a whole has been an awesome looking helmet that has been well crafted and well designed. I used to avoid Icon gear because historically, they have been awful. However, while browsing for a new helmet, I kept coming back to the Variant because it really is the perfect helmet for the urban hoodlum supermoto rider.<br><br>The helmet is incredibly comfortable. When I first got it, I thought I would have to return it to Revzilla because it squished my cheeks so much I had an awful chipmunk face that wasn't particularly comfortable. However, I read a number of reviews here that said once the pads break down, they get much more comfortable. So I kept wearing the helmet and sure enough, the pads lost their initial firmness, and my face is no longer smashed in chipmunk style. It has actually turned into one of the most comfortable helmets I've ever owned.<br><br>Styling wise, this helmet is incredible. Nothing looks more badass than this helmet on a supermoto bike doing wheelies and whatever else hoodlum things supermoto riders are typically known for. When I first saw the Big Game graphic, I thought it was stupid. Its basically a zebra pattern with a random lightning bolt on each side, with a rubbery type coating over it. However, its grown on me, and matched with Icon's mirrored gold lens for the Variant, it looks incredible (in my opinion).<br><br>The field of view is excellent, and has kinda spoiled me. The visor does catch wind on the highway, but you learn how you can tilt your head so that it doesn't tear your face off. I rarely notice it anymore. The airflow is excellent, and the vents are easy to open or close with gloves on. The liner is really comfortable and great at wicking sweat away.<br><br>Complaints wise, I have very little. The noise level is a little bit higher than some other helmets I've owned, but I wear ear plugs most of the time I ride, so this is less of a concern. Also, I got an XL helmet, but the shell size is massive with thicker foam pads. It makes for a bigger, bulkier helmet thats probably heavier than it needs to be for my head. It looks massive next to my old retired helmet.<br><br>Its a very safe feeling helmet and I often catch people either staring or taking pictures of me riding with it on. I never got that, even with some crazy graphics I've had on older helmets. Its definitely a unique shape that works great for the streets.

Coolest looking worst product Icon makes
My girlfriend bought this helmet for me for our anniversary last month. I have loved every Icon product I have ever had till now. After several hundred miles I am ready to give my thoughts about this helmet. First, like most Icon stuff it is very well made with a fantastic aggressive style and a good soft inner lining. That ends the good stuff. The peek is very well designed to give very minimal lift up till about 60mph. At expressway speeds you do notice the peek and when you turn your head for a lane check you best be ready for a large lift from the peek. If you are not prepared it will feel like your head might get ripped off. Next, the fit is problematic if you are between sizes. Icon's size chart has some gaps between sizes so, if you are close to the max size for a large (like me) it will be very very tight. Don't even try it if you are really between sizes! The chin bar looks like it has lots of room but don't be fooled!!! Icon for some reason filled the inside of the chin guard with almost 2 inches of rubberized plastic. This is ok if you have a small nose but, I do not. Every time my nose rubs the inside of the chin guard. If you wear glasses the extra snug fit around the face makes it almost impossible to get your glasses on. And now the worst problem is the shield changing system. I am SHOCKED that Icon thought this is an "ok" system!!!! To change a shield it takes a tool and at least 10+ minutes and a bunch of frustration!<br>In short DO NOT buy this helmet if you..<br>Are between sizes.<br>Spend anytime on the expressway.<br>Have a big nose.<br>Wear glasses.<br>Want to change shields for any reason at any time.

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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.

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.<br>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.

This helmet is AWESOME, Period!!
I ordered the same size as my other 2 helmets which is 2x, and when it arrived i put it on and it is tighter than my other helmets. I think it will be just fine once broken in but right now it is very snug. I might suggest ordering a size bigger than your normal. I was told this by a friend who bought a variant last year but biggest size was 2x so I went with that. The helmet is awesome though. Can't wait to put it to use and loosen it up. Revzilla is my favorite place to shop, always ship very quickly. Waiting on my next order of boots I just put in right now :)

YES.
Bit of a risk getting a helmet sent halfway round the world<br>but I am stoked. The design is pretty out there but I just<br>didn't want another black lid. I did lots of research and<br>this is was the coolest hi-tec helmet I could find. I love all<br>that post-apocalyptic stuff that Icon do so well, and the<br>quality of materials and construction is superb.<br>Smoked visor a must for that cyborg look, but the vision<br>through it is crystal clear, and a panoramic field of view.

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.<br><br>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.

Style mostly, making the assumption that it (better be) would be decent enough for the price.
C J on May 16, 2014
i chose this because it offers the protection i need for riding but the deciding factor was definitely the very unique graphic that i haven't seen anywhere else. once i saw it i couldn't have picked anything else
Lawrence W on May 12, 2014
Awesome looking helmet! People cant help but turn their heads. Neat features with the chin, vizor and rocker vents. The red guts(padding) is just icing on the cake.
BRADLY J on Apr 24, 2014
I've had my eye on this for quite sometime. I just feel like the design itself reflects my intensity to strike when the opportunity arrises. Also, ICON makes the sexiest biking gear for my generation.

Good helmet. lots of compliments
Trey S on Mar 31, 2014
This Icon Variant Big Game Helmet is a gift for my grandson. He chose it because his colleague in the Iowa National Guard has one and loves it. I want it because of the reviews and I want him to be as safe as possible. Of course, the color scheme is awesome, too. My grandson will add a review after he has worn it for awhile.
Dwila S on Mar 18, 2014
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.
John B on Nov 9, 2013
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.

what kind f temperature range is this helmet good for?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The venting on the helmet is not that good. I would get really hot when riding in hot weather, and it got almost unbearable when stuck in trafic.
Does this helmet come with a dark smoke visor? I have heard different things.
Trey S on Feb 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
what kind of temperature range is this helmet good for?
A shopper on Oct 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I've been wearing it in 100F humid environments and it's been doing fine with its vents open, much better than expected. Haven't experienced cold temps yet, but I'm sure it'll do well in the winters as well. No problems, no regrets,
