Icon Variant Construct Helmet

Stripped of graphics and devoid of undue flair - the Construct wanders the earth in opaque minimalism. It is purity of form amongst the flamenco masses. It is truth of materials amid the technicolor hordes. In a world where no two helmets are created equal, the Variant Construct and its raw shell stand alone.

  • Industry leading multi-inlet ventilation system
  • Wind tunnel tested and refined anti-lift visor 
  • Integrated chin EPS air channels reduce shield fogging
  • Optically correct anti-fog shield
  • Removable and washable HydraDry moisture wicking liner
  • Removable chin curtain

Icon Variant Construct Helmet 4.5 5 281 281
The dang faceshield! I've had this helmet for about a year, but not too many miles on it. This is the nicest helmet I've owned. It's very evident ICON cares about build quality. I get a good feeling owning this helmet. The Construct looks sick too. There are a lot of complaints about changing out the faceshield. I don't mind it that much. I don't really change out faceshields during rides, but if I did it wouldn't be a big deal. Pull over, grab a coffee and change out the shield.. just do it carefully. I also don't notice the peak at all. Whatever light movement I get while turned to the side I'm totally used to at this point. I also actually have muscle in my neck that I exercise and use.. yes even when I'm riding. So you get a clear and dark faceshield with the Construct, this is great! The helmet looks great with the dark and it's a bit tight to wear sunglasses under, which isn't my preference anyway. The clear shield seals perfectly; makes it the quietest helmet I've put on. The dark shield does not; this is my biggest complaint about this helmet. I think the helmet looks even better with the yellow shield but if I bought it for 45 bucks there's no evidence now that it would fit. The dark shield hits the "nose bridge" on the helmet and leaves gaps under the "eye sockets". This funnels noise and air right into your eyeballs with the shield fully closed. To me this is a pretty bad flaw but still not a deal breaker. I'm interested to see if/how I can fix it and what ICON has to say about it. July 28, 2015
Loved it at first Loved the helmet at first even though it arrived with a minuscule scratch on the shield and the top left vent doesn't close despite application of a small amount of silicon lube. I've had a chance to put about 500 miles on using it on both my 2013 GoldWing and 2015 CRF250l. Now either the shield or visor rattles so loudly it's distracting me from enjoying my ride. If I can't figure out how to get it to stop rattling it's a deal breaker and will be going back to ICON. Too bad because of all my 20 or so helmets I liked this one best at first J August 24, 2015
Great helmet! I purchased the Battlescar helmet while on closeout, and I'm very happy I did. The day I got it, I took it right out and did a 150 mile ride through the mountains to really see what I got into. Pros: Awesome design! I was getting compliments from someone every time I stopped for gas about the helmet. It's really a unique look! It's also light and very comfortable. I rode for about 6 straight hours with no problem. Other helmets I own will start to hurt after a couple hours, but this Icon was comfortable all day. Next, visibility is great! Much better than a standard street helmet, and finally the airflow is just fantastic, and probably the best thing about it! I rode on a very hot/humid day, and while cruising with all the vents/slots open, it honestly feels like sticking your face out a car window. There is so much airflow into, and out of the helmet that when moving I didn't sweat at all. You can easily control how much air you want into/out of the helmet as well because Icon made the vents big enough that you can operate them easily with gloves on. Cons: The helmet is a little loud, but not more than my other full face HJC or Scorpions. The visor does cause lift when turning your head. I will hand it to Icon, when facing into the wind, there is almost no lift at all, and I can even look up without discomfort, but once you turn your head you can definitely feel the visor act like a sail as it pulls with the wind. I noticed that after doing over the shoulder checks for traffic, I'd have to slightly readjust the helmet by pulling it back down. It's not terrible, but definitely a bit of a nuisance. Finally the visor is not quick change, so you basically need to chose what you're going to wear for the day. For me, I generally ride day only, so the smoke visor is a permanent fixture for me, but for those who commute and need a clear lens for early mornings or evenings, making the switch requires a tool (Included in the box) and a few minutes of your time. Overall I'd definitely recommend this helmet to a friend. It's light, comfortable, great airflow and looks great. I ride a motard so I think this helmet is a perfect accessory for it! August 18, 2015
Air flow, Comfort and it just looks good. I bought this one for the high air flow, living in Las Vegas and commuting daily in 100+ heat I find this helmet is one of the better ones at circulating air. I am not disappointed in this helmet in any way August 17, 2015
Visor lift? No problem here I've had about a dozen various helmets and this one is my favorite, hands-down. So, there's really no aero-effect from the visor at really any legal speeds (75 and below) for me on my R1, and around the century mark and a little over, it's still ok, no neck injuries :-). Keep in mind this greatly depends on your bike (windscreen?) and your riding position, but I can't understand guys saying its a problem. Touching high speeds for a few seconds is one thing, but If you're sustaining speeds of around 100 or more, you need to be on a track and you need a track helmet with no visor... Airflow...just fantastic. I'm bald and I still get hot with pretty much every helmet out there, until I got this one. It really flows air like crazy in the face/forehead/chin area, so much so that I actually close vents around 65 degrees or cooler. In 90 degree/90% humidity weather, you're getting 90 degree/90% air flowing through, so it's still hot and no helmet is going to "air condition" its own ventilation. I wear size L in everything I've had, and there was no surprise here when I bought mine. There's no quick-release for the visor, and yeah, that kinda sucks but I'm ok with it. Just don't sneeze, and keep your nose clean if you do, and you can just wipe down the outside of it still attached. This isn't really a dirt-bike/off-road helmet, but that never stops some from using it as such. I can't speak to that. You should definitely buy one. August 15, 2015
Great helmet with a few flaws I love the design of the helmet, for me the visor on the dual sport design helps when riding into the sun. The airflow is superb on this helmet, not overly noisy but I do wear ear plugs. Came with dark and clear shield plus a chin skirt. I went with the Icon due to it being more of a true street helmet as I am not going to be using goggles with it. My only real complaint with this helmet is changing the shield. More than likely most people who purchase this helmet might not have to change the shield twice a day like I do during my commute. But Icon really came up short with not having a quick release system for this helmet. My Airframe I replaced this one with could be changed with my eyes shut or in the dark. This is the fist helmet that I have had that uses screws to retain the shield in over 8 years. But overall I like the helmet. August 15, 2015
Awesome helmet and looks great I love this helmet. It is really eye catching I got the green and also added the gold face shield. Everyone says it looks like its out of halo but it gets a lot of attention. The cheek pads come very bulky but I was told that as long as you go with the right size shell(as measured) you just get different size padding to custom fit to your head. Can't wait to see how it holds up. August 12, 2015
great helmet I have had this helmet for years and I love it. I originally bought it because I had a DRZ400sm and it did awesome with that bike but now I have a victory cross country and this helmet is way more comfortable and more stable in my opinion than the scorpion helmet I just currently bought. It currently is my go to helmet and very comfortable. It is on the loud side and when the weather gets cold it can get chilli with this helmet but overall I am very happy with this helmet. The one thing I would like to see from Icon is to get Snell testing done, I just feel for the price you pay for their products they should be willing to get a Snell rating for their customers.

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.

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

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

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

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?

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.

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

Brann H asked: Two question; What's the weight difference of this compared to the Variant Carbon? Do you think the "exposed" construction of this helmet makes it more susceptible to sun damage? Nov 3, 2014

A shopper asked: Revzilla, I tried on two other Icon helmets locally, and hopefully you can me which fit is closer to the Variant.

I wore different sizes in each style:
Airmada Large
Alliance Medium

Please tell me which got the Variant is closer to? Thanks!

Chris H: From what I can tell the shell is closer to the Airmada. I take a medium in my Seven Zero Seven and Shoei but a Large in other makes. I'm right between sizes on the chart but I've got a large Variant fits great. The sizing guide is accurate from what I can tell and with the cheek pads that are available you should be able to adjust the fit. Sep 13, 2014

Joseph R asked: I just received the Large helmet, my head measured 23 1/4. The helmet still lifts from the back with a hard pull, and if I push hard I still get movement side to side on the cheeks. Not sure if this should happen or if the helmet is just really plush. Everything feels good though, with comfortable pressure. Should I size down to a Medium? Apr 9, 2015
