Icon Variant Face Shield
Nice mirror face shield
i ordered the Silver mirror face shield and it looks great on my icon variant battlescar charcoal helmet. Has style to it and makes the helmet looks 10+ better than just a regular face shield. It's also fun to stare at people when sitting at lights with the face shield is down and they can't see your eyes at all haha

Mirror shield for Icon Variant 4.5 stars*
Bought the mirror shield option and it looks real nice on the variant helmet (prefer over the Smoked Shield).
-Exchanging of the face shield will take you 5 minutes due to unscrewing and fastening but not hard at all. Tool is Included. i keep it on my key chain.
-Only thing bad i have to say about it is that the area underneath the latch where your finger flips the visor up seems to leak air into the helmet making it pretty loud inside. Either the plastic wasn't cut accurately or it might be my helmet. When i cover the area with my hand its quite but when i uncover it, the air flows in and again; its a little loud. I might have to add extra rubber sealant or something.
Overall nice looking face shield. Im enjoying it.

Love the Gold Mirrored
Put the gold mirrored on my battlescar variant and it looks phenomenal. My city is light enough where I can ride with it at night and be fine. If you live in an area where there is limited lighting, I would still considering keeping a clear with you, especially for night highway riding. Other than that, it's awesome!

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.
