Icon Variant Helmet??Is it great?

Does anyone have this helmet? Or anyone planning to buy one?

I heard they are great and as from what I read the features are amazing. What do you think?

I've owned 2 and crashed in one of them. It held up great in the crash. Pretty comfy helmet just a little loud. Wear ear plugs for sure. Also the visor is almost useless, the visor on an mx helmet comes out farther and lower than the variant.

Do you think a matte black one would look good on a 2011 Diablo Red Speed Triple?

I had a variant, when I had my KLR650. it was light, little wind buffeting at speeds, but wasnt bad. The only downside I had with it, the vents worked great driving around, but as soon as I stopped, that sucker would cook your noodle. wasnt terrible, but noticeable.

Yeah. It looks really neat. I decided on a frost black Arai RX-Q for now. I might still get the variant for a second/passenger helmet.

They are cool looking helmets. It seems to me they would vent really well but not be great in the cold. I have an alliance hi viz and love it. The anti fogging is excellent....
