Icon Variant Face Shield
Not what I expected from Icon.
Love the look but it doesn't own up to its feature. I keep my gear in my house and I keep my house fairly cool. (summer time) When I walk out into my garage my shield instantly fogs up. I understand that that is how the natural order of a sudden rise in temperature works but for this to be a "fog free" lens, I don't think it owns up to the name. Now that being said, it has never fogged up during riding. But I haven't used it in the winter yet. Plus there isn't a lot of sun blockage from this lens. So if you go from a dark tent visor to the mirrored visor, like I did, be prepared to wear sunglasses as well. I also get the slightest little glare on the inside of the lens, of my face. Might just be because I'm very very white. Room for improvement but for me it's not a deal breaker.

Nice face shield...
At first when i opened it, i thought it was darker than i wanted, but once i try it, was ok, got a clear view for sunny days, even in the night i can use it.

I bought the Gold RTS to pain with my Variant Carbon Ghost. The combination looks great, lots of compliments. Works well during the day and is still useable at night in city lighting. No issues with fitment.

Great buy, no problems!
I recently purchased the gold mirrored visor and think it looks awesome. From reviews i read they said that it didn't fit as well as the stock clear visor but I actually see that it fits just as well with no gaps of any sort. I use the visor in both day and night and visibility is great in both conditions. To clean I use the spray bottle it came with filled up with a little soap and water and wipe it with the cloth it came with. I've read that cleaning with paper towels will ruin the shield so beware!

fits poor and scratches easy, looks killer
This is the second shield I have bought for this helmet.
It looks amazing. The exterior coating/material is very strong. I did a lot of desert riding, and never got any scratches on the outside.
The first visor fit poor, it would never really click into place, leaving a little air gap. If you look at the little peg on the right side (looking at it) you can see that the shield bends out too far for it to catch on the clicking notches.
I kept the shield because let's be honest, it looks so good.
Then I cleaned it, and bam, completely scuffed up. BE SUPER CAREFUL WHEN CLEANING. I thought I was being careful, gentle, but it scuffed so bad I never wanted to put the visor down.
despite the flaws, I bought another one to replace the scratched one, I hoped it would fit better, but nope, just as poor a fit.
It looks good, but given how easily the inside scratches, and that both of them fit poorly, I can't recommend the visor at this price.

Went for the reflective gold shield; receive endless comments suggesting I look like Master Chief. Looks great, is indeed mirrored, you can not see into the helmet from the outside. Install was simple; couldn't ask for better.

Icon Variant Gold
Don't touch this with a paper towel! The gold reflective surface coating rubbed completely off. Glass cleaner and a paper towel is all it took to ruin this shield. Im a fan of Icons stuff but this doesn't do the brand justice.

I would have given this product a 5/5 for every category because it looks great. However, it doesn't fit quite right and there is a small gap on the left hand side on the bottom of the lens when it is closed. Haven't had an issue with water getting in but some small debris has made it through during freeway riding.
