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.

Love it! Looks badass with the mirror visor, my Sena 20s Bluetooth headset and a Gopro hero4. I love this helmet! May 27, 2015
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
Typical Icon quality, style and fit! This helmet falls right in line with other Variant helmets from Icon. High quality construction, great fit and finish, and detail makes this a winner! May 4, 2015
Awesome looking helmet but wind resistance is horrid So this is the first ever helmet I have ever purchased and the main reason was because of how it looked and felt. I have no complaints with this helmet as long as I am going below 50 mph. Anything above that and it gets really hard to do head checks and my head is constantly jittering because of the wind. I don't know what it's like on other helmets but this makes faster speeds very uncomfortable. Other than that major flaw, I think everything else about it is great, it's quiet at high speeds, well ventilated, quite comfortable. Maybe I'll buy another helmet and keep this one for cruising around town! June 16, 2015
My favorite helmet I love these helmets, this is my second one and wear it every single day. It has great visibility and looks incredible. The visor on top doesn't catch as much wind as you may think. It is certainly manageable for city and highway riding, although track use where you're going 115+.. you may want a different one as you will DEFINITELY notice that visor unless you are fully tucked in under the wind screen.

A gorgeous helmet with only one real drawback. As manufacturers go, Icon is on the forefront in terms style and brand design. This is evident in the Variant. This helmet looks amazing, has tons of airflow, is feature rich, is durable, and comfortable to wear. Of the multiple helmets I own, its the one I like to wear the most. And thats part of the one problem I have with it. Changing shields is a pain. You must remove a plastic cover on each side, with a flat-blade. Then, you must use a tool of some kind to remove the philips-head screws that hold the shield in place. However, the grooves are rather wide, and the metal is soft. You WILL start to round out the screw grooves pretty much immediately. Icon includes a keyring flat-blade, but its somewhat useless. A quarter works better, but you still have to fight to get purchase, in order to ensure you don't round out the screw grooves. Once you're changed out, you have to try several times to get the angle right for replacing the screws. If you mis-thread, the screw can lock into the mount. Then you're replacing a helmet, as the mount is embedded in the fiberglass of the helmet, not the mounting system. To wit, you end up not being able to perform quick shield changes. This is kind of a downside if you're like me, and you carry a smoke shield for day riding, and a yellow shield for night riding. If I know I'm heading out in the day, and coming home after dark, I'll invariably grab one of my other helmets that I can quick change a shield on, so that I'm not locked into one option. Now, don't get me wrong. The variant is my favourite helmet. I wear it whenever I can. But if I might need to switch shields, it quickly becomes my secondary choice. May 25, 2015
Love this helmet I ride this helmet on my fz09 and I love it. The wind does crazy or a tuck doesn't fix. They style is perfect for what I was looking for and the battle scar coloring was so unique I always have people asking me about it. I would recommend this product for anything debating it and will probably buy it again once this one goes. The fit and finish was perfect. Always quality stuff from icon. April 27, 2015

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

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

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
