Flawless helmet Coolest looking helmet hands down. Everything is great on this helmet except for two things: the lens removal which isn't hard just a little time consuming, and it's a a bit expensive for just a little bit of less weight. pictures don't do its justice on how awesome this thing looks.

Awesome helmet if you can afford it. This is an awesome helmet. It is definitely one of a kind and looks amazing! The air flow is extremely great, it is all around an extremely good helmet. Though it is a huge wad of cash to drop. As far as the air drag argument, facing forward, this helmet has no drag. The only drag I've experienced is from turning my head to look over my shoulder at highway speeds. I don't know if the price tag is worth it for a single helmet but if you want the coolest helmet, this is it. March 13, 2014
Amazing Just Amazing. I'd recommend this helmet... Perfect fit. November 11, 2013
Helmet that has it all Just got my white carbon cyclic and first off the photos don't do it the justice. The carbon looks amazing in person and the quality and finish reflects the premium price. Fit to me is more like my dirt bike helmets more than a road bike helmet but still feels great on and the eye port is huge. Looks insane with the RST Silver shield also. If your thinking about this helmet just go for it, you won't be disappointed. Looks so aggressive and turns lots of heads, but most of all it's comfortable and feels quality. Also thanks to revzilla for the best international shipping and customer service experience. October 14, 2013
A good Arai Shoei alternative The Variant carbon corrected some issues I had with the Arai XD I wore for years. First; the shield doesn't fog.. and I tried really hard to make it fog. It just doesn't. I tried on a Shoei Hornet at a local store, and it's shield seem to fog more than my Arai. Second; the shield is optically correct, no more minor distortions as on my Arai. The shield also has a good number of smooth quality feeling detents. I use this helmet sometimes on the street, but mostly offroad enduro (Yamaha WR w/lic plate). It's well suited for both. Wind noise and weight are both very low for this style of helmet. Construction and finish quality are excellent and on par with my Arai XD or Shoei RF1100. The interior pads are well designed and easy to remove and wash - stylish as well. The peak is not quite as offroad tuned as the Arai, but it's still functional enough for sun blocking and incoming roost or branches. Traditional goggles don't work; no strap gap and interfere with the shield, but instead of goggles I've used prescription 7Eyes for years, which for me have worked way better than goggles and fit excellent with the Variant. The helmet comes with a nice helmet bag, cleaning cloth, squirt bottle, and chin curtain. My only complaint, which is VERY minor, is that given $550, pricing it between a Shoei and Arai, replacing the shield requires popping off these snap-on caps on the sides which cover the mount screws. The snapping feature just doesn't feel as quality as the rest of the helmet. They're merely cosmetic caps, but still, there has to be a better way. Finally for those who find country of origin important - made in Korea. April 16, 2013
The Best Helmet Ever The Icon brand stays up with their word. The helmet is marvelous I couldn't ask better. January 28, 2013
One of my favorite Helmets One of the things i love most about this helmet is the look. It looks like a dual sport, but its a street helmet for sure. I get no drag on the freeway. The visor reduces a lot of sun irritation and glare. There is a lot of air flow with this helmet and the vents are easy to close with your gloves. The only down fall is that the shield does not have a locking position or semi open like the shoei shields. You do need a tool to change the shields, so people who change from tint to clear on a daily basis beware. Overall i would buy this helmet again November 28, 2012
Best colour scheme of the variant helmet Like the colour scheme very much. Very stylish looks, compare to Arai XD series. Slightly heavy on the weight, small on fit. Got to get 1 size up. Noise level is bearable at 120 km/h, vision is good & wide enough. One thing to take note is got to get the breath guard or tinted visor. Look much better, if not it's doesn't look cool. Haha. I'll definitely recommend this product. November 5, 2012

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Christopher S: After at least 3 weeks scouting the web, and looking in to all alternatives it came at last to this alternative or Aria XD4, at this point and looking at all reviews I could find, many went for Aria, not due big specifications differences rather than something more in to de "like" zone "I like removable this, easier change that, etc." with not much of quality arguments. I like my money, and I liked both helmets too. Plus I have to import it,so it is at least -125 buck´s which is always welcome. Jan 24, 2014
Adam B: Suits my bike and has an aggressive style that no other helmet has on the street. Oct 7, 2013
