Icon Variant Construct Helmet
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.

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!!!

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.

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.

this helmet is better than what I expected , top quality

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.

the helmet looks amazing , but are some quality issues:
1. the slider that cover the top vent on the right side( on top of the helmet) is off by 5-6 mm and doesn't close the vent .
2. the face shield ( mirror like) doesn't fit . actually the holes on the face shield should be 2-3 mm offset towards the center.
3 . the noise inside is too loud . i ride in city condition, and over 70 km per hour is difficult for me to concentrate because of the noise.
the helmet is advertised as white but the actual color is butter like . i have no problem that the fabric is visible , but the color of the resin i don't like.

awesome helmet but some cheap parts
This helmet is and looks killer. But 2 things really bother me about the quality after spending almost 400 buck's. The plastic visor and the clip on cover's that go over the screws for the shield feel very cheap and fragile, This definitely discourages me from changing the shield from the tinted to clear for day and night time riding. The visor flows to the back of the helmet to form what seem's like a handle which i wouldn't recommend picking it up by. what am getting at is for a helmet that supposed to take an impact i feel like you have to handle this thing like a baby for fear of breaking the look of the helmet, the #1 goal is to not wreck or mess the helmet up but it feels like a mild bump, bang or drop will crack or break the visor and clips. Other then that i love this helmet, its comfortable the shield is clear and you can see a wide field of view and i get a lot of complements on it.
