First off here is the helmet that i just bought.




Overall this is an awesome helmet, I love the design (looks much better in person) and it matches the bike pretty good. Its defiantly has to be about the most comfortable helmet I have ever worn. The "AirFrame" design of it is pretty nice too. It has awesome ventilation, and great padding.. I pretty much give it an A+ for design and comfort. Now I know icon is not good at paying there riders that they sponsor, but i had to have this helmet when I say it. Perfect for the bike =).:YEA

I have the same helmet in black and silver, and its actually pissing me off, my lining inside keep coming undone, the back 2 snaps keep coming undone, i have had the helmet about 2 months now, and it drives me nuts, the dealership said they may wararnty it, i just have to take it there. other than that its very comfortable and also looks amazing, one other thing that doesnt really excite me too is the fact that them painted side tabs dont come off easier when you want to change shields. it def. not an easy thing to do. overall i give the helmet a B.

Sporting an Icon Decay red/black with my black 1000rr. Fit, styling, comfortability, visibility, everything is great on it.

I keep hearing the same things about any Icon products.

When it comes to gear (helmets especially) I buy products that are tried & true. Arai, Shoei, AGV, Suomy, etc. I constantly hear bad things about all kinds of Icon stuff.

ok, just received mine. first off, why is this thing so freakin' big!!! man, i'm a small guy (5'3) so i look like a dang lollipop with this thing on. thats my first impression, other than that the graphics are really nice, and looks really well made.

can anyone suggest any helmet that are smaller, that won't me look like i'm about to fall over cuza the helmet?

peace.
