Re: Anybody have the icon airframe helmet ?
I have an Airframe, I can honestly say it is a good helmet.
Obviously K3gixx has never ridden in one.
Mine flows a ton of air, is very stable at high speeds, it is not as light as other helmets but it is not a tank either. The removable liner is nice.
Not the best helmet out there, never crashed it so I cant say whether or not it will protect me in a crash. I hope I never have to.
A lot of ICON haters, mainly because they just dont like their image and they go by what everyone else says.
Would I race in it? No. I am buying a Bell Star to replace my Shoei that I recently crashed. But IMHO the Icon is a decent helmet.
I will say, the clear visor that is included with it has one of the BEST anti-fogging coatings I have ever used, hands down. The tinted one I bought for it is not as good.
And before anyone runs their mouth. I have owned many different helmets over the years, Aria, Shoei, Bell and ICON plus probably a couple more I am forgetting. Also I would never wear a Scorpion helmet, I tried one on and had a headache for 5 minutes after, most uncomfortable helmet I ever had on. Maybe it was due to my head shape. but everything about them feels cheap. I have a Bilt helmet that I keep at work for test rides and that even feels better than the Scorpion did.
