Icon Variant Ghost Helmet

For assignments off the official record, ICON offers the Ghost Carbon Variant. They've taken the standard Variant’s cross-terrain functionality and added a hand-laid carbon fiber shell, translucent supervents, and endurance yellow tinted Optics shield - all finished with a Rubatone tactile coating. We can neither confirm nor deny the specifics of any mission involving the Icon Variant Ghost Carbon.

Comfort, vision, protection. A wind tunnel refined shape, executed in a Carbon Fiber/Kevlar/Spectra shell construction matrix, along with an dual-density EPS core provide critical impact energy management. Extensive venting and a removable Hydradry wicking liner provide increase comfort by reducing rider fatigue. The anti-lift visor directs and channels airflow as it reduces the glare from an unyielding UV assault. While the extended eyeport and zero distortion optics provide unrivaled field of view. If the streets are your area of operation - equip yourself for the fight with the Icon Variant.

Features:

  • All world standard, meets or exceeds the following: dot fmvss 218 (US), ECE 22-05 (Europe), SAI AS1698 (Australia) and SG (Japan) safety and testing standards. Does not ship with SAI or SG certification stickers
  • Carbon Fiber/Kevlar/Spectra shell construction
  • Long oval headform
  • Multiple oversized intake and exhaust ports
  • Molded EPS nose reduces shield fogging
  • Wind tunnel tested and refined
  • Distortion free precision optics anti-fog, quick-change face shield
  • Removable Hydra-Dry moisture wicking liner
  • Rear spoiler for reduced helmet buffeting
  • Removable chin curtain

Note: Ships with yellow face shield only.

Icon Variant Ghost Carbon Helmet 4.8 5 11 11
Check figment before buying. Bring earplugs for long rides. Too of the head fits true. But cheek pads run a little small. Definitely seem to be paying for the look and not so much for the weight. Side by side it's hard to tell a difference. View is excellent. Yellow visor is awesome. Good for day and night. Can get pretty noisy when on long rides. Wind in the ears is pretty bad. Over all though I am happy with it. June 2, 2014
Solid Helmet, Teriible visor system. I bought this helmet for lightness and looks. It has both. Everything about it is cool except 3 things. First is the Visor system. To change visors is pretty simple and straight forward, but the indexing tabs on the visors are easily damaged in the process. The channel they have to fit in on the helmet is small and oddly shaped. I wound up breaking the tabs on both my visors the first time I tried to install the mirrored shield I bought. This meant that the visor wouldn't stay locked down. When I shoulder check at highway speed it would crack open every time. To fix this I had to break the indexing tabs off the visors. Now they lock down, but obviously don't index or stay open very well. Still not a huge issue, Second problem is directly related to the massive amounts of air this helmet flows. The airflow is tremendous and awesome, but leads to a whole bunch of wind noise due to the unique shape of this lid. Gotta wear earplugs. Not a huge deal. Third problem is one that constantly seems to plague Icon gear. The build quality, But there is good news. The only place I noticed this was in the chinstrap. Material feels a little less refined than other helmet systems I have experience with. And also in the Visor design and quality. I know this has mostly been cons, but the helmet is great, and I would certainly buy it again. May 19, 2014
Just get it! Just got the Icon Variant Ghost Carbon Helmet with a mirrored gold shield and I get compliments about it everytime I ride. Not only does it look good, but its very comfortable. I wore it during a two day motocycle endorsement course and it preformed amazingly! I have a very small head and wear a 7 1/8" fitted hat and the Medium size fits great! May 9, 2014
This product has amazing features I loved this helmet, it fit like a glove. I wear a size 7 1/8 hat , so a medium size helmet fit perfectly. Amazing ventilation , looks and feels great. April 15, 2014
Amazing helmet Got this helmet for christmas with the intent of riding it for Snowmobiling AND riding when riding season came around. Along with the helmet I got the gold mirror lens (which looks absolutely amazing) and the breath box to help with fog in cold weather. My buddy got the battlescar with a dark smoke lens and wishes he would've spent the extra money and just gone with the Ghost CarbonXD In the cold it works ok, The helmet does quite well for a while and never does fog but condensation builds on the inside of the lens after about 30 minutes. If you crack the lens it creates enough ventilation to stop it. The vents work fine, If your head gets too hot you can always open up a couple of vents and when they're all closed your head stays toasty. Haven't got a chance to ride with it in the summer but so far this springs its worked great. Its very light and the visor doesn't create any extra drag like you might expect. At freeway speeds when turning your head to check your blindspot you do feel the wind but that can be expected to some degree with all helmets. Overall I absolutely love the look and feel of the helmet and am very happy with the purchase. March 17, 2014
Excellent ventilation, viewing angle, weight, looks the coolest Excellent in: Looks - this is by far the coolest looking helmet without forcing it. It's cool naturally. The carbon and that translucent plastic shell is just killer. Ventilation - with the balaclava on, with its tight fit, top of my head still feels the breeze. I love it. This is an amazingly well vented helmet. Viewing angle - excellent. With deep peripheral vision, wide opening for the visor this is one nicely open helmet Weight - at 3.2 pounds (I weighed mine) this is pretty light by my standards My only problem with this helmet was that it does not have cavities for the Sena speakers. But I had a spare Sena mount kit that has the stereo jack for earbuds so I used that one and guess what - this will force me to wear ear buds which will also take care of my non-existing habit of wearing ear protection. Ear protection is important and I would always be lazy about it and not wear it. Now I have to; if I want to listen to my precious music! Everything happens for a reason. Though not all people may take it so lightly so be aware of this: no cavity for the speakers. February 20, 2014
Mil-Spec and Sexy As my wardrobe is utterly filled with Revzilla products, I am on a mission today to be helpful and provide an up-to-date review of as many products as possible. As such, this review will be current (as of late January 2014), quick and to the point. First off, I am a street/custom rider, so the brand's approach is dead-on for me. Might not be for racers and what have you, but to each their own. I wear a "Medium" in practically everything ICON, including this product. The "Ghost Carbon Helmet" is unreal - in the best possible way. Pictures don't do it justice. I'm coming from an Arai Corsair V, and LOVE this thing. The fit is what it should be, but still manages to seem "roomy." The field of view is wide, which I love. The yellow visor was different for me, but works really well on the road. I needn't say anything about the styling, cause it speaks for itself. SEXY, Spec-Ops style. Can't speak to the protection, hope I never have to. Seems very solid though. Very satisfied. 5 out of 5 stars for these reasons. Some people feel ICON is a "bargain-brand" of some sort, but I disagree entirely. My closet is filled with their stuff, and I wouldn't spend my hard-earned money on garbage - repeatedly. Their quality has vastly improved, and the ICON 1000 line is a true winner. Ride safely. January 25, 2014
awesome helmet! I just got this helmet in today, and it was definitely worth it! I was on the fence at first about spending the extra money on this helmet, but I'm glad I did. I've read a few different things about the drag from the visor and it got me a bit worried, but it feels fine, even at higher speeds(over 120mph). The airflow feels amazing and keeps you cool. The yellow visor is nice and it does enhance your surroundings, but I switched to a mirrored visor for aesthetics, and it took it to a whole new level of badass! Pros: looks AWESOME!! Good fitment, wide view, lightweight, great airflow Cons: none On a side note, the symbol on the back doesn't mean "ghost" it means "shadow" which still ties in with the helmet. December 16, 2013

Sean S: Non adjustable and wind noise but it's a great lid, I woulda bought the shoei but no gold mirror visor Dec 12, 2013
Reply to Sean Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Jerry L: It is not adjustable. It does do well at blocking the sun, depending on your head position of course. I want to warn you that I purchased this helmet $520 and dropped it one time as I bent down to pick up my son. It hit a the floor and broke the visor. Revzilla wouldn't return or refund any of it and ICON doesn't make a replacment visor for it. I was very disappointed in the fact that I paid over $500 dollars for a helmet and it wasn't very durable. Other then the durability it is a great helmet, very light and looks cool. Don't drop it though! Dec 12, 2013
