Icon Variant Face Shield
Face shield does what its suppose too
I ordered the light tinted visor after breaking the little tab on my original clear one. I like the light tint, its just about right for most of my riding. Fit seemed a little off on the helmet, but not an issue.

Great for sun protection
I needed sun protection and this gold tinted shield works great! It's not "rated" for UV protection but it saves my face from sunburn. Love it. Good vision clarity as well.

Shield look badass and works great during the day, keeps the sun light and glare out, at night not so much. You have about 75-80% visibility which is bareable but the problem is the halo-like effect the headlights from oncoming traffic produce. I just lift the shield and wear glasses...but that's me. installation was a bit of a pain but otherwise it was a great buy

I bought two shields: one silver and one dark smoke.
The silver looks fantastic, but is not 100% correct concerning optics; I will survive with this, but it's important to mention.
My Variant is matte black, so the dark smoke shield looks absolutely "bandit". I love it and the optics is much closer to the perfection of the stock one.
For both shields the shape/profile are not as accurate as the stock one's, causing to pieces not to sit quite as well on the helmet rubber sealing. I expect some wind whistles tomorrow on the road... let's see

Be careful when cleaning RST Gold/Silver
This is a great shield for I'm sure everyone knows by now a great helmet. The only flaw I've noticed is that you have to be extremely careful when cleaning the shield with the RST Gold/Silver to keep the finish looking new. Rub too hard and you will rub the chrome finish right off. I would recommend that when cleaning your chromed shield that you only use a microfiber towel, damp with warm water, and lay it across the shield. Let it sit for a few minutes to allow the bugs/debris soak and then gently wipe the shield clean being careful not to apply too much pressure. I've had to replace one of my gold shields already after two months and I was following the exact cleaning procedure specified by Icon. It is a great looking shield you just have to be more careful when it comes to cleaning it. I own the dark smoke version as well and there is no such problem, only the chromed shields.

This is my second one. i got into a motorcycle accident in Germany while i was there on vacation. I was on my BMW K 1300GT. It saved my head. Also works great at really high speeds like those you find on the Autobahn. its comfortable and keeps me cool on a hot say or i can close the vents if it get a bit chilly. i love the vision aspect. i can see much much better then a normal helmet. i bought my second one about a month ago and would defiantly recommend it to anyone.

Second time is the charm
I purchased the gold shield for my icon battlescar. Unfortunately the first one I received had a chip in the gold finish, which was surprising with the large box it wrapped in. The reason my review is still strong is because the second one I got has been near perfect. Fit is a hair off, but its easy enough to get on. Your vision isn't "gold" at all, just slightly tinted - which is good for day and night riding. This shield is perfect if you don't want to wear sunglasses in your helmet during the day, and don't want to change to a clear shield at night. Also, it looks bada.
