Icon Variant Hard Luck Helmet

Black ink sleeved across its raw construct shell speaks to the Hard Luck's felonious intent. 13's emblazoned across its flanks sneer politely at the society from which it was ostracized.The Icon Variant Hard Luck will never taste a silver spoon or know the loving embrace of a fat trust fund.

The Icon Variant Helmet is a revolution in ADV and urban riding. Designed give riders the advantages of both a street and dirt helmet, the Variant makes use of a wide field of view, aerodynamically tuned peak visor, super strong Fiberglass/ Dyneema/Carbon matrix shell and a dual density EPS core. Extensive venting and the HydraDry sweat wicking liner helps prevent serious moisture buildup and keeps you cool when the heat is on. 

To keep the Variant stable at speed, the engineers at Icon developed the anti-lift visor to direct airflow, both into the intake vents and over the shell of the helmet to reduce buffeting and wind noise. An optically correct face shield and extended viewport keeps your vision clear and your eyes on the prize.

Features:

  • Fiberglass / Dyneema / Carbon Fiber shell
  • Industry leading multi-inlet ventilation system
  • Wind tunnel tested and refined anti-lift visor
  • Integrated chin EPS air channels reduce shield fogging
  • Distortion free precision optics anti-fog shield
  • Removable and washable HydraDry moisture wicking liner
  • Removable chin curtain
  • Includes both Dark Smoke and Clear face shields
  • 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

Icon Variant Hard Luck Helmet 4.5 5 331 331
4 years and countless cross country trips and still going Over the last 4 years I have logged many miles in this helmet. Although the helmet is mostly good and well worth the money there are a couple key things I feel I need to point out. Now I do a lot of long distance touring and behind the windscreen of my GS it is great. However if my windshield was much smaller I would think that the shape would dirve me crazy over 1,000 miles. Its not like it wants to rip off your head, but you can definitely notice the shape. They also need to come up with a quicker way to change your visor, its not difficult but it does take about 5 minutes to do so. The visor also does not lock into place like I have seen some Arai and Shoei helmets do. For example when youre going down the highway and a strong cross breeze is present, it tends to blow the visor open just slighty which can be frustrating after riding all day. The last negative I would point out is the gap between your chin and the nose of the helmet. When it is very cold and or rainy this gap becomes very apparent. Overall a great helmet, well worth the money, have no regrets at all. Although this next helmet I will be buying I am going to spend the extra money and get a Shoei or Arai. July 21, 2016
Icon variant hard luck is the best This helmet is awsome, its designed well and its comfortable there are lots of vents for airflow i never broke a sweat in this helmet July 12, 2016
Great Helmet, not for freeway use though Had this helmet for about 2 years now. I really like the styling, the wide vision and the sunshade is awesome. If you are going to be in a suburban environment or just riding around town its great. HOWEVER, On the freeway the wind noise is absolutely deafening.I mean to the point of not being able to hear after riding for an hour on the freeway. Great helmet. August 24, 2016
Absolutely love it! This helmet is amazing! I do not regret buying it what so ever. Looks amazing with the mirrored visor. August 16, 2016
better than what I expected! I was looking forward to this helmet, waited and waited... for what seemed like days for me. (It actually came in something like two days, but you know what I mean). I was worried about the fit, did I use the charts right??? They were a little different than my last helmet. I put it on and it was good! I rode with it on a 80 degree day and it was HEAVEN! Tons of air flow...almost like not even having a helmet on! I will say, I would not like to wear any other helmet at this time! One biker or rider to another.... you will like what you like, but I can't see how you can't help but love this thing! August 4, 2016
Great looking, great feeling, super light helmet I've always purchased medium to lower quality helmets, but after buying really nice safety gear (jacket/pants/boots/gloves), I wanted to update/upgrade my helmet. I bought the Raiden Carbon in Large. (last helmet was an HJC FG-17 in Large) The size was right on, I have a rounder shaped head and this helmet still fit me well. No pressure points anywhere, a tiny bit of wigggle room near the brow, but I believe thats more due to my round headshape. The noise is average, with the visor up, visor down it is nice and quiet until the 70mph mark, 50-60mph or under and it is nice and quiet. I got the full carbon version which feels like a feather compared to my HJC, super super light. The vision is amazing, I've never had this much peripheral vision in all my previous HJCs or my father's Arai. The raiden version also comes with a tinted visor which is a huge improvement. The helmet fits a SENA headset no problem. The 2 things worth mentioning that everyone wants to know: Yes the helmet peak does catch some wind. BUT, much less than anticipated. Doing upwards of ~100mph on my sport touring bike it felt great, I even looked up to test it, and although it did pull a bit, it didn't rip my neck back. At normal cruising speeds of 70mph or under there is no drag. When you look side to side to check your blind spot there is again a small amount of drag, If you look down and to the side instead of Over the shoulder there is NO drag. 2nd, the visors are NOT the easiest to change over, which is a good and a bad thing, they are heavily secure, and do require a screw driver to change, but that to me is more of a high quality thing. There is no way they are breaking or coming unclipped on 1 side by accident. I mainly do sporty riding in the twisties, and some trial riding and this helmet fits the bill. Its light, comfortable, has great vision, and looks B.A. July 1, 2016
This helmet saved my life.... Literally. Just last night... A driver pulled a U-turn in front of me in an intersection, he didn't bother to look before he did so and I slammed into his car at approximately 70 km/hr. After I was launched into the air and bounced off his car my face slammed directly into the asphalt. This helmet not only took the impact but allowed me to walk away with only a sprained right ankle. I was also wearing full gear at the time. I cannot say enough about this helmet. If anyone is looking at this helmet and wondering about how safe it is, I can attest to how well it worked in a major impact. I'm still here because of it... Thank you Icon. June 28, 2016
May be a little tight! It looks amazing and and breathes very well. The texture on it looks even better in person and the red lining brings it all together nicely. Goes with any color bike and the style suits any kind of bike. The only negative thing is he size. I am loyal to Icon and only wear their gear. I have always ordered a large helmet and from my previous 2 helmets I have never experienced fitment issues. However, this helmet is a bit too tight. Not so much that I had to return it but just enough to where my checks are sore from being pushed together so much. With that being said I'd suggest ordering one size bigger for comfort reasons.
