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 Variant helmet from Icon. A wind tunnel refined shape, executed in a Fiberglass/ Dyneema/Carbon matrix, along with an dual-density EPS core provide critical impact energy management. Extensive venting and a removable HydraDry wicking liner provide increased 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 an unrivaled field of view. If the streets are your area of operation - equip yourself for the fight with the Icon Variant.


  • 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

Great value for a mid range helmet. I have a long oval head and this is the most comfortable helmet I have worn. The quality is very good for the price. Also included are a tinted visor, cleaning kit, and neck guard. The apex seems to only catch wind from the side. Otherwise, it's not noticeable, as far as wind is concerned at the reasonable speeds I ride at. November 16, 2015
Awesome helmet Comming from a long stretch with scorpion helmets this helmet was a good choice. I would say if you can get the helmet on sale it's a good buy. A little expensive for what you get. I have only one complaint being that it is a little on the loud side in comparison with the scorpion helmets which I found to be super quiet for their price point. November 16, 2015
Great price! Wanted a full face helmet but something that still had a MX style. Came with two shields clear and dark tint. I ended up getting the silver mirror shield and love it no problems with it at night. for the price you can't go wrong. Perfect for the super moto guys and gals. November 2, 2015
Great for the price but a little big Love the helmet. I've had it for over a month and the airflow is amazing but does get a little cold even with all vents closed. My only issue is it seems a little larger than my airmada version. Otherwise highly recommended. November 2, 2015
Great Overall I ride a bagger, and love this helmet. I do not get buffeting, and wind noise is not that bad. This is most likely due to the front fairing and that I rarely go over 90 mph (it's a Harley LOL). There is really only one thing that bothers me and that is that the visor change is a royal pain. If this would be resolved, I would give it 5 stars. Also, I had to pull over and put the helmet on the seat, and the vibration of the bike made the helmet fall on the top and cracked the visor. This was my fault, but the helmet only fell about 3 feet. October 31, 2015
Great unless you get a smudge I had been wanting a variant since the time I saw it, and I am not in the least bit disappointed in the end product. The helmet is super comfortable once you have your self adjusted, and I have had no problems with pressure points on long rides. I get plenty of airflow even behind my large GIVI screen too. I only have two real complaints. The first is with the shell. While the helmet is great once its on, I do have a bit of a time sliding the helmet on and off. It's just a bit tight. My second issue is with the visor and smudges. Had one on the inside of my shield and with the curved lens, it made oncoming headlights look insane. Once I got it cleaned up, all was good. Just a note for the daily rider. Last but not least, I have had NO issues witht he peak catching wind, even at 90+ mph. October 19, 2015
Great features and performance looks awesome I have a KTM 1190 Adv R and I wanted a helmet that fit the personality of yhe machine. The helmet performs great and it looks knarly. Just call me Mastrr Chief!!! October 19, 2015

A shopper asked: Hi.
I am interested in buying the Icon Variant helmet but I have read that the sizes are not always the same as others. For instance I have a large helmet, would it be the same size with the Variant? I need to get it right as I am in England and I don't want to have to return it if it does not fit.

Anton P: I also wear a large helmet, I wore a large icon Alliance helmet. I just ordered the large Varient and when you first put it on it's VERY tight but (I don't think a lot of people realize this) it "breaks in" the more you wear it. The hydra dry padding icon uses gets looser the more you wear it, it almost molds to the unique shape of your head and cheeks. There defiantly is not a huge diff in the sizing. You'll first put it on and think wow this is tight but depending on how often you ride it will loosen up to where it's not squeezing the hell out of your head and just fitting nice and snug. 2-3 weeks if you ride a couple of times a week. The icon Varient is defiantly the best helmet I have ever owned and I have been riding for 30 years. Icon nailed it with this design. LOVE IT! Jul 2, 2014

Leighton K: Hey...as far as size goes I ordered a Nolan n91 in a medium and it fit great and tried my buddies variant on in a small and it fit good too...so if Nolan is about average I'd say order a size smaller and other YouTube reviews say it runs big so order smaller too...other than that it's an awesome helmet people are always looking at it...so different from all the rest get a Medium if your normally a large I'd say but you'll love it...you can always order pieces of the inside padding to adjust it too.

Matthew R: I went by the measurements on the site and I had to send it back to get a size up. Measurements said I was a large. Got it it couldnt even fit over my head. But after returned got the xl and it fit perfect. Id say go one size up. Seems to run small Jul 2, 2014

A shopper asked: Does the visor open on the hard luck variant? Jun 9, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
D E: First, YES the visor opens, has multiple positions and closes tight. Other points to note:
1. It ships with both a clear AND a smoke visor
2. The clear visor is installed
3. It ships with the tool and instructions to change them out.

Hope this helps and I am very pleased with the helmet, comfortable and quite. I have the Sena Bluetooth installed and no one can tell I am talking to them @70MPH.

Brian D: I use this helmet for the street. If im going up hill and the sun is straight in my face I can't really avoid getting blinded even by looking down, but flat roads I can just dip my head down a slight bit and avoid the sun. Jun 16, 2014

Joe W asked: In the video review for this helmet, Anthony says that it's a Hybrid helmet and it's not a Dual-Sport helmet. Where does it lack in the dual-sport side? What do dual-sport specific helmets offer that the Variant helmet doesn't? May 24, 2014

Brian D: This helmet is a lot bigger then DS helmet because its also made to be used for street. I dont ride DS (want to soon), so Im not sure if the avg goggles would fit arould all the shell sizes. Im an XL and my snowboard goggles wont reach the back. Jun 16, 2014
Reply to Brian Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
A shopper asked: I went ahead and measured myself for the Variant sizing. I measured at around an XL. I then went to my local honda motorsports store and tried some on. I definitely could not fit the large onto my huge head. I then went to grab the XL and I still had trouble getting it on my head. With a good push I was able to get it on, but it fit very tightly to my face. I was wondering if there are any cheek pads I could get that would be a bit thinner? I'm afraid the XXL will be too big (they didn't have one for me to try). Aug 28, 2015
