Icon Proshield Pivot Kit
I have 50 percent of the cost of my helmet invested in these stupid things
I picked up an Icon Alliance helmet which I love, with one exception. These stupid latches. While the theory is great and it is easy to swap shields out, these things will break if you look at them the wrong way. I am on my second set now having broken the right side twice now.
As much as I like the helmet, when it is time to get a new lid, I will look for something with a sturdier design. This is the gigantic week spot in the Alliance helmets.

Application: Icon Alliance Torrent
I'm glad I found this replacement part or else my Icon Helmet would have been a total loss over a tiny plastic chip on the pivot. The problem with these Icon helmets, giving rise to my down-ratings, isn't fully on these side locking piviots; its also that prolock visor security system on the helmet. To flip it up, the shield needs to be flexed to get it off the security nub, which in turn puts flex on the small plastic parts in the side pivots. Its only a matter of time before little plastic parts in the pivot start snapping. I've now read where Icon owners just rest their shield on top of the nub to avoid damaging the pivots. Ten bucks for replacement isn't bad, but my damage also caused one of my side plates to pop off and go flying somewhere and I couldn't find it. That was another $25, but I'm back in biz. Again, I'm glad Revzilla offers the replacement pivots!

A Solid Upgrade From the Originals
My original pivot kit on my Airframe Construct broke the first time I swapped my visors leading me to wearing my tinted visor all the time, even at night. The other night it broke all together so I could only leave my visor shut or it would pop off on the right side. These revision 2 units are much stronger and easier to use than the original version. No visors popping off and solid clicks into place. Just hope these last longer than the original.

Well Priced; Stiff
After cracking my Icon Airframe's original set on one side, I put this whole new set on. It comes with everything you need, screws included. When installing there's a little wiggle room so it took a couple tries to get them straight. The visor release lever (orange) is much stiffer than the stock set. It loosens up a bit with time, but the first few times I changed visors I used a screwdriver to operate them.
