Icon Variant Construct Helmet 4.4 5 50 50
Saved my head This helmet is absolutely stunning! Pics don't do it justice. Goes great with my white alpinestars mesh jacket. The noise at high speeds is a little loud, but no worse than my icon airmada. At high speeds, the peak can pick up some wind but its not bad, especially if you tuck down. I was going to give the helmet a 4/5 except today i put its protection to the test. Long story short, a guy fell asleep and drifted into oncoming traffic, causing a chain reaction of braking. My front brakes locked up and i went shoulder first into the suv in front of me. My shoulder left a huge dent, but is ok from the shoulder pad in my jacket. My head hit and shattered the tail light, no concussion, no head pain, nothing. Its truly amazing. August 8, 2014
Great looking, great fit, but a bit loud when doing highway speeds Love this helmet! Took me awhile to bit the bullet and buy it, but I did and don't regret it. Always get comments (which is just a fun thing) and I know I'm protected well. I trusted the fitment chart and as others have said.. it was very snug to start with. But after 2 weeks of normal use, it's perfect. I switched out of my XL Shoei Qwest to the XL Variant and am super happy I did. Way more air flow and vision. I actually have most of the chin bar vents closed because it was a bit too much on most occasions. Currently using it on my 2007 Ninja 650r. Haven't tried it yet on the BMW 1150RT July 28, 2014
Best dual sport helmet out there Still happy with it. Little noisy on the freeway but a supermoto doesn't belong in the freeway anyways. Great field of view, never gets too hot. Visor seals and lifts with ease. I'd buy another if I was in the market again. July 14, 2014
verry nice helmet great fit after its broken in!!! I've had this helmet for about 3weeks and ive used it every day. When I first put the helmet on I thought I was sick in it after finally getting it off and almost ripping my ear off I decided to give it some time to see if it would break in, so about after a week and possibly a broken ear (not really) the helmet was finally fitting normaly like my other helmets. The fit is snug and takes a little maneuvering to get off but overall it's a great helmet!!! June 23, 2014
Great Helmet! Overall this is a great helmet. It looks awesome and always turns heads! My only gripe with it is the noise level at speeds over 70MPH. Great for cruising around at lower speeds but when your trying to talk to a riding buddy on the highway over comms its very hard to hear them. If you do not intend to use communications devices or record with microphone then this is probably not an issue. May 13, 2014
The Variant is by far one of the best looking helmets I've owned. This helmet is great. I originally bought it specifically because of its looks but after I wore it a few times the features are really intuitive. The variant gives you massive airflow, visibility, and you can't beat the head turns from other drivers on the road. it fits really snug and it does take a couple of rides to break in the cheek pads but after that it's fine. The visor doesn't put a strain on my neck any more than any other helmet at high speeds. The pattern is an interesting touch. I wasn't totally liking it but it definitely grew. All in all its a great helmet. April 28, 2014
awesome craftmanship this helmet is better than what I expected , top quality April 16, 2014
unique helmet as others have stated, this helmet isn't a true dual sport, but it looks the part and is has some nice features including the visor (obviously), good ventilation, a wide field of vision, and a very solid feel. the weight seems on par with my arai and shoe helmets, but you will notice the air noise as it passes through the visor. the face shield also takes some getting used to. given the unique shape around the nose portion, it's a little awkward to ride with the shield half up - it causes a bit of distortion as the shield is not straight along the bottom. the removable liner/cheek pads are a nice touch, and allow you to really customize the fit. i ended up buying an xl helmet and m cheek pads. i haven't tried to remove the shield yet, but the instructions seem pretty clear. not as easy as some others, but i rarely change the shield so for me, not a big deal.

caninphx: As others have stated the Construct one does come with a dark smoke shield as well as the clear shield. Both shields are treated with the antifog coating. However, with my dark smoke shield the fit of it is not as good as the clear shield. It seems to stick out slightly to the left and right of the nose area on the chin bar. Not much but just slightly, like it is not curved correctly or something. Maybe just my shield, does it affect anything no, it just allows a bit of air to come in. Apr 10, 2013

Chris M: It is a moderately heavy helmet. A friend of mine has a full carbon helmet and it is dramatically lighter!!! ( and more expensive). This helmet is a Kevlar compound. That being said I have no complaints about the weight when comparing to my old fiberglass helmet.

Cool look, Get tons of compliments about my lid.

Side note: Visor is not quick change, must remove screws.

derek w: It does not come with a removable peak. That being said, there is a video on youtube about how to remove it. Also you can get instructions from icon on how to remove it. It doesn't look hard to do, just not something you could do quickly and easily. Hope that helps.

Steven D: No it isn't. It is replaceable but I definitely do not recommend trying to swap it in and out. Very tricky and the back edge is held on with double sided tape. Took me a while to get mine installed correctly. Quite a bit of swearing involved as well. Nov 26, 2013

Joe S: i've never tried to take it off, but it doesn't bother me too much on highway riding. granted i ride a moto so it hasn't seen much over 100mph. but either way it cuts through the wind pretty good imo. and for the record, this is a great helmet. Nov 26, 2013

A shopper asked: Even though this touted as street helmet, are there any features/aspects that prevent this from being a viable dirt or dual sport helmet? Aug 27, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ronals C: This is what I would consider a great helmet for adventure bike owners who spend about 60-80% of their time on the street. I have owned this helmet for nearly a year now and wear it daily on my commute to work. It is very comfortable, vents well, and turns heads. However, there are better choices if you spend over half your time on the trail. Aug 27, 2013
Reply to Ronals Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Jared S: It really is quite similar to other dual sport helmets, I have used mine on trails quite a bit. Obviously you want to be careful not to scratch the visor on branches and the like, but I've been happy with it. I ride a supermoto

Also, the pads are easily removable for cleaning if you happen to get them muddy or otherwise dirty.

Timothy R: The only feature I would see is if you want tear offs. As a dual sport it would be fine. But when u go to dirt, i would have a regular helmet and goggles for that. I have not tried this helmet with goggles since i dont ride dirt yet. But i do love this helmet. Changing lenses is a pain with the two screws but, it is easy. Aug 28, 2013
Reply to Timothy Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Robert L: I believe this is the perfect helmet for duel sport/adventure riding. Taking the visor off and using googles would make it just right for dirt/duel sport. Good air flow but it is not affected by wind. The helmet runs a little small. I'm normally a large but its a bit tight in the cheeks. I would not size up though. Aug 28, 2013

RevZilla: The ICON Construct helmet is just a new graphic that ICON has offered for the Variant in 2012. The primary difference is that the Construct includes an extra dark smoke tinted windshield. The fit on the Variant is a bit tight, so if you are between two sizes, we would recommend to go one size larger. May 2, 2012

Sean11: I wore a Large in my other helmet and ordered a large in the Variant and it fits pretty tight on my cheeck bone area but feels like it could be a little tighter around the side of my head and the back. But it doesn't wobble side to side or up and down so it works well for me. Apr 2, 2012

Larell: I have a size LARGE in the Bell Vortex but a MEDIUM in the Variant. Both helmets fit very well. I tried on the Icon Alliance before buying the Variant, and I was a LARGE in that as well. Also, the fit is a little narrower than the Alliance. Jul 16, 2012
Reply to Larell Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Thomas S: Slightly bigger. I went down a size and it was a very snug fit. If you are a larger medium you may not want to order a small. If you are a smart medium then I'd order a size down. Feb 18, 2013

A shopper asked: I have an Icon Alliance Helmet, size Medium...
For the life of me I can't find this helmet in any of the shops near me to try it out, and I was wondering how the sizing of this helmet compares to any of the other helmets in the icon line up, such as the airmada, alliance, etc...
Is the sizing similar to any other helmet?
Sep 9, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Yeshe P: I found that the sizing is partially accurate. I normally wear a large helmet, and while most brands are comparable, the cheek pads in this helmet may be a little too tight depending on the shape of your dome.. For me It's far too tight as is and removing the helmet is difficult. There is a sizing reference for cheek pads and I've read that another owner purchased the 3XL cheek pads since they are thinner.

Jet T: The Variant runs slightly smaller in fit than the Alliance. Depends on how snug you like your helmet but It was still really comfortable for me. Kind of like the difference between a standard car seat compared to a racing seat. Sep 18, 2013

A shopper asked: what is the extra hydradry piece with the butterfly wings for? and where do i place it? Jul 4, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Lakiri H: It's for cold weather riding. You attach it to the helmet on the bottom just below where your chin would be while wearing the helmet. The " butterfly" wings are tucked in between the plastic outer rim and the cheek pads. If you have ever pulled your cheek pads out you will see that the pads have the same type of plastic butterfly-looking pieces that hold them in place. The wind stopper device attaches the exact same way. With it installed is sucks getting the helmet on and off but it's worth it when the temps are 50 degrees and below. Hope this helps... Jul 4, 2014
Reply to Lakiri Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
