Icon Variant Face Shield
This lens is awesome!
I put this lens on my variant helmet and makes it look way more sick! I would recommend it on sunny days as it does work for those days when sun is beating down on you! Perfect fit great product thank you!

A great looking visor, but doesn't fit as well as the factory clear
As others have mentioned, the gold shield is great looking, but seems not to fit as well as the stock clear one. Icon should also design their helmets to be easier to swap out the shields, as I would change back to the clear one for night riding if it wasn't such a pain to do.
Overall, it's a great look, but unfortunately its form over function. Otherwise, I would have given it 5 stars.

Nice shield. Pain to install
You need the hands of a surgeon to put these shields on compared to other shields for other helmets. I found that the plastic nubs that, i guess guide the helmet, were weak and extremely mis aligned. I had to bend them to make them fit. Of course one broke. Overall i guess it could be worse.

Great shield anti fog not so great
The sun protection and look/fit etc are all great on the shield, however the fog free protection is not the greatest. I have since coated it in the Clarity defog drops, best stuff on the market just do not get the towel packs those do not work, has to be the drops and they need to be buffed into the shield with a microfibre cloth.
Bit of a pain in the butt to remove the shield once every two weeks to do this, but it is worth it in my opinion as the antifog coating is not all that it is cracked up to be and the Clarity defog drops are the best on the marker IMO.

This shield is very easy to put on, looks outstanding on the helmet and it gives you a wide view. It also keeps your eyes protected during those sunny days.

Looks great and has a good fit
I bought the silver mirrored visor to go along with my helmet. The first thing I'll mention is the fit. The visor does fit very well, except for one little corner on the right side where it doesn't quite touch the seal. Also should mention that fitting another visor can be a bit tedious with this helmet, but if you take your time it is not hard. Visibility is very good with this visor as well, and the visor hasn't fogged on me yet. Good looking visor, good fit and a good price overall.

Reflective Shields give the Variant a wicked, rogue look
Ordered an extra shield for my variant (Reflective Silver) Gives the variant a wicked look. Makes you that mysterious rider. Love the look. In my opinion Variant shields are a pain to swap. Having to use a tool, remove parts and to snap visor and plate back together. My spare shield was a little tricky to install, the hooks for the click mechanism were slightly smaller than the stock and made it tough to snap in. I don't recommend riding at night with the reflective gold or silver. Still gives that unsafe tint on poorly lit roads. Overall it's a great product for my day adventures and look speaks for itself. People stare at stop lights, stare back and don't stop staring, they become very uncomfortable. It's too much fun, try it. 4/5 Because of hook situation, makes me hold off switching shields as much as possible

It lets you do the halo look.
Its a reasonably priced aftermarket visor compared to other premium visors, its clear and seems durable.
